Gardner Forest Meadow and Marsh Meander Trail is a 1.1 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Nantucket, Massachusetts that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
This trail, like the rest nearby, are ON Nantucket not near Nantucket. If they were near Nantucket they would be in the water.
Meander trail is on spot. Lovely little trail that you can meander and stroll thru. Combonation of trails and farm road. You'll eventually come by the old Gardner cottage, which is locked. Near here is an osprey nest where a pair of ospreys are quick to let you know they are there. A few yards from here the trail veers off to the pond. A pair of swans and ther chicks swam by.
The trail eventually gets to a marshy area with catonine tails on both sides. This is an elevated, wood trail...part of which was covered with water. I decided not to chance an backtracked.
