Caroline Tuthill Wildlife Preserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This preserve, one of Martha’s Vineyard’s hidden treasures, was donated by John and nora Tuthill in memory of their daughter, Caroline, and is administered by the Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation. even long-time residents are not aware of its hiking trails along the shore of scenic Sengekontacket Pond and the opportunities for bird-watching around the salt marsh.

If you are looking for a conveniently located spot with varied but not taxing terrain that offers fields of lady’s slippers in spring and succulent blueberries and huckleberries in summer, head for the Caroline Tuthill Preserve."

"This short, easy walk is the perfect answer to the question “Why preserve open space?” Located a few minutes from bustling Edgartown and sandwiched between busy highways and housing developments, the Caroline Tuthill Preserve offers a tranquil, relaxing place to enjoy nature. A self-guided trail leads visitors through pine–oak woods and alongside a salt marsh. Boldface numbers in the description below refer to numbered markers along the trail, which are keyed to text in Garrett Family Trail Guide, a pamphlet that is usually available at the trailhead."
