Where are the Vineyard's best sledding locations? We asked on Facebook and got these answers:

  • "Right behind the SSA Park & Ride. Great spot with easy access."
  • "Sweetened Water!"
  • "Abel Hill too. But avoid the headstones!"
  • "Tashmoo Overlook"
  • "Sweetened Water Farm"
  • "Tashmoo"
  • "Farm Neck?"
  • "Farm Neck"
  • "Tashmoo and up at the cliffs in Aquinnah"
  • "There are some unpaved roads in Vineyard Haven near Lake Road and the boat launch at Tashmoo. By the tennis courts. Since they are not heavily trafficked anyway it would be a good safe spot. You can take Greenwood to the culd e sac and then cut over to the left. Just behinD Jabberwocky!"
