Helpful staff in the information center. Great beach along the trail. A little tough to follow the map
run by great people. We went twice, a return after a dusk stroll around the place for a morning bird watch. It was a great way to get oriented and see a different part of the Vineyard experience. these people are quite thoughtful as they provided options in their shoppe for insect repellant that was quite economical, provided filed glasses...

The elder volunteer at the front desk mentioned that the paths had been... More
Would have rated it higher if we had just saw the butterfly gardens and the visitor center. The gardens at the entrance were nice and the visitor center made us believe we'd be in for a treat. However, our walk consisted of nothing more than seeing a swan and a few geese and LOTS of bugs. We tried two different... More
Kids love it but it can be a very buggy adventure so be prepared. We love to kayak to the beach on Sengekontacket and hike in.
