Martin Trail

Breunig-West-Side-Field-1To get there enter Old Mill Road from West Side Road. On the left is our trail head sign “Martin Trails.” In mid fall we mow these lots and trim all the walls. There is no better example of what agricultural Block Island looked like when the entire island was devoted to farming. So, until grass grows in the spring, enjoy the magnificent open views. During daffodil season, a knoll close to the road displays hundreds of daffodils. It’s worth a stop to gaze at their beauty or pick some. To encourage walkers to use and enjoy the property more, we cut a perimeter trail through the grasses this year. It is hilly in some places—this adds to the beauty. Sturdy shoes and long pants are suggested. This is a perfect walk or run in any season. Bring your dog if you’d like.
