The island is known for its smooth designated bike paths, but on the southern half of the island there are great hiking trails through Sanford Farm, Ram Pasture, and The Woods conservation area, an unspoiled 780-acre expanse of grasslands and forest. Try The Barn Walk trail (3.1 miles round-trip), which leads to one of the highest points on the property, with panoramic views from sandy Cisco Beach to the calm waves of Madaket Beach. Also, look for the nesting ospreys that soar above Ram Pasture and Hummock Pond.
