Mashomack Preserve Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Covering the southeastern third of Shelter Island, this 2,039-acre preserve of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) encompasses a maritime environment of tidal creeks, woodlands, fields, swamps, freshwater ponds, and 12 miles of stirring but inaccessible coastline.
Four interlocking color-coded trails and the wheelchair- and- stroller-friendly 1-mile Joan Coles Trail introduce the preserve. A nature garden displays common vegetation, and the preserve supports a natural osprey nesting colony and a rare pine swamp."
