Most day trippers or people staying in town never get a real feel of the island. From alter rock (which is just a hill) you can see a good portion of the island and you notice the huge amount of open conservation land. I'ts easy to get to by car, by bike it's mostly easy but there are some patches... 更多
The best way to get her is by bike over sandy roads. The journey is just a good as the views once you get to the top. Once here, you get a 360 view of Nantucket. You can't get that anywhere else other than a plane.
We visited Altar Rock while on a bike ride around the island. We rode in the path a little bit until it was tough to navigate on the bike and then we walked. It is a short hike to the top and has a great 360 degree view. It is interesting to see the island from that perspective.
A trip to Altar Rock provides terrific views of the moors of Nantucket, the inner harbor and the northern part of the island (Monomoy, Shawkemo and Polpis). It is in Conservation land and has miles of trails where you can enjoy the island's vegetation, while getting some great exercise.
highest point in the island with endless trails and lots of opportunity to see redtailed hawks-eagles just a fantastic not to be missed walk when you drive in donot park at first lot drive up about a mile bearing to the right and park at top. makes for better walks...
It's worth finding your way through the moors to get to the rock/plaque that tells you you've arrived. Sweeping 360 degree view over the moors, cranberry bogs and out to Polpis Harbor. Best T-shirt ever was 30+ years ago that said "Ski Altar Rock". Find it and you'll understand it!
Hadn't been here in 23 years and well worth the off road trip! Views around the entire island! You can bike or offroad here. Just off Milestone.
Once thought to be the highest point on the island, this gives you an amazing 360 centralized view. A little tough to get to, and if on bikes you'll find some soft sand. Turn on Alter Rock Road, and head to the airport navigation tower (it's right next to Alter Rock.) One of a kind view of the island.
