Sanford Farm

Getting There


Nantucket Conservation Foundation Property

Dirt roads and grassy paths

No shade

Lots of dogs

Leash Alert: This walk has walkers, runners, and lots of dogs! If you have a dog-fearful or dog-aggressive dog, this is not the best walk for you.





Take the Madaket Road heading out of town. A little after 114 Madaket Road, look for a large parking lot on your left. 
There is a reason this walk is so popular. Well, lots of reasons: There is a poop bag dispenser, a trash can, a big parking lot, it's right on the Madaket Road, and easy to find. And it's beautiful.

There are different trail options, too: short, medium, and long. The main, or shortest, loop trail is about a 30 mintue walk. There is a longer one that takes you to the barn, passing by an old homestead site. The longest option goes all the way to the beach. If you really wanted to, you could even continue along Clark's Cove for a real hike!

Trail markers with information about the property are abundant, so not only will you not get lost, but you'll also learn something along the way!
