Middle Road Sanctuary - Hillside Overlook Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This route explores a hilly, forested sanctuary, owned by the Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation and located just off Middle Road in Chilmark. The destination is an overlook on a steep southeast-facing hillside, where there are views of the Vineyard’s Atlantic coast and a rest bench.
From the trailhead, where there is a board with a sketch map of the sanctuary, follow the single-track Red Trail (unsigned) into a mostly white-oak woodland. Martha’s Vineyard, like Cape Cod and Nantucket, is home to the ticks that transmit Lyme
disease. A device located just beyond the trailhead and off the trail uses corn to attract deer, which are the tick’s primary hosts."
