Springs: Parks and Beaches Professional Review and Guide
"The quiet hamlet of Springs differs considerably from its governing town of East Hampton. Where East Hampton is wealthy and exclusive, Springs is home to working-class residents who live in modest homes on quiet neighborhood streets and commute into New York City to work in a variety of fields, from construction to personal finance to maintenance.
This 18.9-mile loop starts in the East Hampton hamlet of Amagansett then heads to the northwest for a clockwise tour of Springs, the quiet hamlet to the northeast. Most of the route is fairly flat, with only two climbs of any real consequence, for a total elevation gain of 495 feet. The route starts at the library on Main Road (Montauk Highway / NY 27). Exit the parking lot and turn right onto Main Road, a fairly busy stretch of road with a generous shoulder, then take the rst fi right onto Windmill Lane, a quieter, pleasant road that heads uphill past the historic Oak Grove Cemetery."
