The Sanford Farm - Ram Pasture - and The Woods - Barn and Back Trail

The Sanford Farm - Ram Pasture - and The Woods - Barn and Back Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This enjoyable excursion traverses a former farm and grazing area wedged between Trots Swamp and Hummock Pond, southwest of Nantucket Town. The habitats include grassland, shrubland, a pine grove, and a glacially formed freshwater pond. Before the arrival of Europeans, the area had a long history of use by Native Americans.

After settlement, sheep and other livestock kept the grasslands open, but today’s land managers for the Nantucket Conservation Foundation preserve precious sandplain habitats through the use of mowing and prescribed burning. Boldface numbers in the description refer to numbered interpretive markers beside the trail. Please stay on established roadways and trails."
