John Presbury Norton Farm

Size

118.0 acres

Description

A missing link — not just any link, but one of singular beauty — in the planned cross-West Tisbury trail was secured with the conservation of this property. As a result, a continuous public trail of some four miles in length will be in place from Duarte’s Pond on the Lambert’s Cove Road to the Old County Arboretum opposite the town school. The land’s chief appeal, however, is its active and expansive farm fields. Observers will appreciate the contrast between the dry, open plains here against the sopping wetlands on the abutting Wompesket Preserve.

Access

Start at the intersection of the State and Old County Roads. Continue south 0.1 miles down the State Road; driveway is on the right, which leads to the trailhead.
