An airport may seem an odd place to take a walk, but lack of development at Trade Wind Fields has preserved the sandplain grassland community, which is fast disappearing elsewhere on the Cape and Islands. A public trail links Trade Wind Fields with nearby Farm Pond Preserve, which has wetland habitats. Please be respectful of the protected flora and fauna. NOTE: Because the taxiway and runway are still in use, access by people and pets is prohibited.
