Wapatequa Woods Reservation


196.6 acres


This reservation — which has grown to 100 acres from its 20-acre birth in 1988 — straddles the town lines between Oak Bluffs and Tisbury. It serves as a greenbelt outside Vineyard Haven, the island’s busy port.


Start in West Tisbury at the intersection of the State and Stoney Hill Roads. Follow the Stoney Hill Road 1.1 miles; trailhead is on left. Road is rough; four-wheel drive is recommended.
