Hither Hills State Park

Hither Hills State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"On Long Island’s east end, this 1,755-acre state park brings together a superb lineup: walking dunes, “phantom forests,” a pristine mile of Atlantic beach, the cobbled shore of Napeague Bay, and Goff Point, where piping plovers, terns, and oyster- catchers nest.

An interior region of pine barrens, dune heath, and maritime grassland completes the offering. The selected hiking loop travels the Napeague shoreline and makes an interior return via the Paumanok Path, Long Island’s premier long- distance trail linking the island pine barrens between Montauk Point and Rocky Point Pine Barrens State Forest."

I live less than 10 miles from this trail and i'd say it's the best hike on the east end. The woods are full of life, the beaches near the trail are full of shells and huge bluffs, but most of all the view from the start finish point is worth the drive alone. It's a great place in the fall, especially for the sunsets over the bay.
