Let’s Take A Hike: 7 Family-Friendly Trails of Nantucket
by Leslie Bains
The island of Nantucket, 30 miles out to sea, is full of undeveloped land that visitors and residents alike can explore. Over half of this land has been conserved, and the seven hikes in this illustrated guide were chosen to highlight historical significance, topographical beauty, or natural habitats found on the island. The hikes are between half a mile and three miles long, and each includes simple directions, a history of the hike and its landmarks, and questions about nature and the island of Nantucket.
