One of the best ways to see the Vineyard is on a bike. Martha's Vineyard boasts over 44 miles of biking trails and roadways throughout the island. Whether you just want to enjoy a leisurely stroll or find something more challenging, Martha's Vineyard offers something for everyone.
Many roads in Martha's Vineyard are well suited for cycling with paved multi-use paths that are separated from vehicle traffic. For safety, it's best to stay on those paths. Here are a few suggested routes.
Beach Road Path (5.4 Miles One-Way)
- Beach Road Path is one of the most popular trails on the island. It's a flat road the entire way and follows the beach. There's nothing better than a mid-ride swim!
State Forest Loop (10 Mile Loop)
- The State Forest Loop begins at the state park entrance, moves over to the Greenlands and then circles Thimble Farm. The path surrounds the Manual F. Correllus State Forest, which has more than 5,300 acres of forest.
West Tisbury Center to Aquinnah Cliffs (12 Miles One-Way)
- This trail features spectacular 150-foot cliffs looking at the miles of shoreline below.
No matter the path you decide, be sure to bike around the island safely! It's the law in Massachusetts for every rider to be wearing a helmet.
