Description

A classic sand plain grassland habitat, whose survival in this location was a matter of good fortune. The land’s use for decades as a grass-strip airport prevented the land's succession into woodland.  Ongoing rescue efforts are underway for sand plain species --- purple tiger beetle, sand plain blue-eyed grass, purple needle grass, bearberry, wild indigo and sickle-leaf golden aster.  The restoration effort is a dynamic process. Please stay on designated trails and follow property rules.

From the intersection of the County, Barnes and Wing Roads, travel on the County Road toward Edgartown; after 0.5 miles, turn left into trailhead driveway.
