Menemsha Hills is an absolutely beautiful area on Martha's Vineyard! There are three overlooks, and one of those overlooks is the second-highest point on the island. Each lookout has beautiful views of Martha's Vineyard, Vineyard Sound, and Cape Cod. The trail is very well-maintained, and...More

It actually is more of a hike than a walk. To do the whole circuit takes about two hours. There are a lot of ups and downs, but two outlooks offer spectacular views of the Sound and the Elizabeth Islands.

1m hike round trip to the 2nd highest point on the island. Only 3 feet lower than the high point (Peaked hill 111') at Prospect hill. Nice trails, plenty of parking.

This walk takes you to one of the highest spots on the island, through some interesting and beautiful landscape. The high points are great views of the ocean from at least two spots. We encountered only one other person when we were there.

This fairly easy walk (but with some substance and route options) offered wonderful birdlife, varying vegetation, a few points to admire ocean views, and an access to a rocky beach at the end. Highly recommended property owned by Trustees of Reservations!

This was a wonderful trail. Not steep and very beautiful views. The small sign to the parking lot was too high for a driver to see and was hidden behind trees and bushes. The trail had some signage, but could have used more. Sometimes it...More

Off of North Road, there is a (somewhat small) sign marking the easy access to a parking area that holds about 16 cars and a portable toilet. The closest loop is Harris Loop which leads to Prospect Hill which is the second highest point on...More

So many beautiful sights our Martha's Vineyard guide introduced us to during our tour of the island, plus the tip for getting the best souvenir purchases at the best prices!

From the woods trail to the beach, this TTOR property features some of the best of the Vineyard's views. Wildflowers and birdlife can distract you from the trail; watch out for poison ivy, and check for ticks after you leave! The beach is very rocky...More
