Camp Hero State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Sand, surf, and the occasional military ordnance are the charms of this coastal hike at the eastern tip of southern Long Island.

Beginning in a maritime forest, this fairly easy hike leads to some of the best coastal views in New York, with wide expanses of the Atlantic Ocean stretching before your vantage point along high bluffs. The trail also reveals the remains of a military base that protected the eastern seaboard during World War II, where alert observers watched for German boats that might attempt to sneak up on this surreptitiously guarded outpost.

The first third of this hike wanders through woods from one end of the Battery 113 Trail to the other, on a largely unmarked trail crisscrossed with shallow streams. Once it emerges on the park road, this loop continues to the main attraction: sculpted bluffs that rise above a gravelly sand beach, with the sparkling ocean beyond."
