Coast To Coast Trail Section Temporarily Closed Due to Southern Pine Beetle Forest Management
The Nantucket Conservation Foundation (NCF) has confirmed the first detected infestation of southern pine beetle on Nantucket, located on NCF property at the West Gate entrance to Ram Pasture off Barrett Farm Road. Due to these findings, Ram Pasture West Gate trails, including a section of the Coast to Coast trail, are temporarily closed. We suggest you follow the detour shown in the map below, which bypasses Sanford Farm, leading you down Barret Farm Road where you can reconnect to the Coast to Coast trail.

Conservation, recreation and agriculture for the benefit of the public in perpetuity
The Nantucket Land Bank was created by a 466-to-1 vote of annual Town meeting
in 1983. Since inception, as the first of its kind in the nation, it has served as a model
for other communities across the country. For over 30 years, we have worked to
acquire, hold and manage key open spaces, provide waterfront access, preserve
scenic views, protect ecological resources, promote local agriculture and create
outdoor recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike.
