Nantucket Walkabout offers award-winning guided treks that many people have loved for years. The Nantucket Walkabout’s wilderness hike is one of the greatest activities for the entire family. The hike takes place at Smith’s Point – a canal between Tuckernuck Island and Madaket Harbor. Popularly known as Esther’s Island, the canal borrowed its name from the 1961 Hurricane Esther that cut off half of Smith’s Point from the island. Currently, it is considered Nantucket’s westmost geographic spot.
