Sanford Farm, Ram Pasture and Woods Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trail explores the southern half of Nantucket. The trail meanders through a beautiful, open field ending at a lush, secluded beach. This is a well-marked walk that teaches the agricultural roots of the island at each informational marker. The length of this hike is deceiving as you get swept up in the beauty of your surroundings.
Begin your walk across a lovely meadow, along the edge of Trots Swamp, a stretch of freshwater wetlands, and into a
stand of pitch pines. On top of a rise, a wooden barn stands sentry over an incredible view. Hummock Pond glistens beyond the Ram Pasture, now dotted with osprey nest posts."
