Hempstead Harbor Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Because Tappen Beach is about midway down Hempstead Harbor’s eastern shore, you can head north or south after launching. If you’ve started paddling south, the fi rst thing you’ll notice is an incredibly large, formidable-looking bulkhead that protects a marina on your left. The marina’s entrance is somewhat hidden from view, with an opening in the bulkhead facing south. Because of this, you may not be able to see a boat coming out of the marina until it’s right on top of you, so pay attention to your surroundings as you paddle down the bulkhead’s length."
