Long Point Wildlife Refuge is .3 mi. w. on Edgartown-West Tisbury Rd. to Martha's Vineyard Airport, 1.3 mi. s. on Waldron's Bottom Rd., e. on Scrubby Neck Rd. (Path), then 1.2 mi. s. on Hughe's Thumb Rd., following signs. The refuge is part of a sand barrens ecosystem that exists in certain areas from New Jersey to Maine.
Home to many rare types of vegetation, such as scrub oak shrublands, sandplain grasslands and coastal heathlands, the refuge contains habitats that require disturbances for their existence. A beachfront and a 2-mile walking trail also are open to visitors.
