Nantucket Multi-Use Paths Description

Nantucket, while only 14 miles wide, boasts 83 miles of coastline, 10 pristine beaches, and abundant natural beauty. Across its variety of its sandplain grasslands, heathlands and forests, the island boasts 650 different species including Black Huckleberries, Highbush Blueberries, the New England Blazing Star and the Eastern Silver Aster, in addition to the variety of marine species like dolphins, whales, seals and the occasional shark that can be spotted along the coastline. Only accesible by ferry, boat or plane, Nantucket is ideal for cyclists, because although cars are allowed on the island, it can be pricey to bring a personal vehicle onto the island.

The Nantucket Multi-Use Paths connect the small island through 35 miles of off-road trails for cyclists and pedestrians alike. These trails give visitors access to the various regions of the island including the Historic Downtown and Siasconset neighborhood on the east end of the island. Several of these paths even provide visitors with direct beach access, including the Eel Point Road Path, with access to Dionis Beach, the Madaket Road Path, with access to Madaket Beach, and the Hummock Pond Road Path, with access to Cisco Beach. The Polpis Road Path takes riders past the infamous Nantucket Shipwreck and Life-Saving Museum. TrailLink Users should see the map for more detailed route information on the Nantucket Multi-Use Paths.
