It is on Nantucket, not just near it. Near it would be in the ocean. The trail is open year round.

Really enjoyed this 5.9. Easy and so pleasant with little surprises that come into view at various points--especially the ocean. I ran it in light fog which made it magical. Just an FYI: no one leashes their dogs and I had a few close encounters, including one big guy who bumped me sideways in the thigh.

It would be a great place to go for a walk. Running can be a little tricky at times due to the sand (which can be 3-4in deep in places). The grass seemed to well maintained to a below the ankle level. I will definitely be going back there next time I'm on the island.

Easy trail (as are all trails on the island). The trail is actually made up of three different trails. You can choose to do all three or do the shorter loops. Beautiful views of the ponds and ocean. Trails have interpretive signs.
