East Hampton Trails Preservation Society is a not-for-profit association dedicated to establishment, protection, maintenance, and enjoyment of trails, paths, and natural lands in the Town of East Hampton and throughout New York State. Our activities include weekly guided hikes offered to the public free of charge throughout the year on East Hampton's almost 200 miles of trails. In warmer weather, we also offer opportunities for road cycling, and for paddling by kayak, canoe or SUP around the Hampton's numerous bays and harbors. Volunteer members of EHTPS help in trail planning, mapping and maintenance, as well as educational and social activities. Members enjoy many social events, including a winter holiday party, summer beach picnic, and occasional movable feasts.
EHTPS owns no land or trails of its own, has no paid staff or permanent place of business. Membership dues are used to purchase maintenance tools and equipment, insurance, printing and postage, media exposure and similar expenses.
