Scheduled activities

 

Tuesdays, 9:00 A.M.         MAINTENANCE HIKES (2 - 4 miles)

Weather permitting, EHTPS conducts weekly Tuesday morning maintenance hikes, preparing for other hikes on our schedule and keeping as much trail as possible clear and blazed.

MARCH 4, Saturday,  10:00 A.M.                                                        POINT WOODS (4.5 miles)

Hike trails lined with American holly, oak and mountain laurel to the bluffs overlooking the Atlantic. We will pass Battery 113 in Camp Hero.  There are a few steep areas and a couple of stream crossings; one or two stepping stones so dress for a few muddy spots.  It’s a beautiful hike in any season. Meet on Camp Hero Rd., a right turn off Rte. 27 in Montauk, about a mile east of Deep Hollow Ranch. Leader:  Larry Raymond 631-668-3432, cell 646 675- 8513.

 

MARCH 18, Saturday, 10 A.M.                                                  OCEAN VIEW TRAIL (3 miles)     

This moderate-paced hike will take us past Fresh Pond in Hither Woods along a seldom traversed, somewhat hilly trail that offers glimpses of the ocean at the highest point.  Meet at Hither Hills West Overlook on Rt 27, about 1 mile east of the Old Montauk Highway fork.  Leader: Eva Moore 238-5134 or day of hike 631-681-4774

        

MARCH 25, SATURDAY,  10:00 A.M.                                           JACOB’S FARM LOOP (2 miles)

For those who want to stretch their legs while they take in a woodsy view in its early spring attire, this is an ideal walk to start off your weekend. A moderate pace on mostly flat terrain. Meet at the parking area on Red Dirt Road in Amagansett, about ¼ mile from the intersection with Accabonac Highway.  Leader: Eva Moore 631-238-5134.
