Goethals Family Trail

Sand dunes, coastal heath, streams, oak woodlands and freshwater wetlands: these habitats and more comprise the 9.5 acres of the Goethals Family Trail. Through a joint bargain sale purchase of the land of Mr. Goethals by the Town of West Tisbury and Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation, the beautiful land between the Lambert’s Cove Road and the Lambert’s Cove Beach has been permanently protected. The property is actually owned by the Town of West Tisbury, while Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation holds a conservation restriction over it. In the off-season months, the public is welcome and invited to enjoy walking an interpretive loop trail that Sheriff’s Meadow has established on the property.  


Follow the Lambert’s Cove Road to the parking lot for Lambert’s Cove Beach. Public parking is available in the off-season months.
