Hither Hills State Park offers visitors scenic picnic areas and fireplaces, sport fishing, a sandy ocean beach, playing fields, a playground and a 168-site campground on the ocean. Anglers can fish year-round and obtain permits to fish at night. The unique "walking dunes" of Napeague Harbor are located on the eastern boundary of the park, which also has woodlands filled with Russian olive, oak, shad and pine trees. Bridle paths and hiking, nature, biking and cross-country ski trails are available.

Beautiful views, fascinating area to walk through. Amazing way to see the north side of Montauk .We brought our 8 mo old puppy in early Nov and she loved it. Very easy walk in sand 95% of the time, so you could do it in flip flops. Great time, not hard, fun. There is some short elevation up and down through sand. Highly recommended for kids, dogs, and photos. Looked like parking for only 4-6 cars. (I went in off season, so there may be more parking along the road in season, not sure)
We loved it and only passed one other small group. It took us 1hr.

Coming east make a left at the tennis look for trail on right. Park on the road. Trail climbs up into woods and dunes. All of the trails in Hither Woods can be ridden in some kind of loop this system can take you all the way to Fort Pond Bay.

Better to start this at the Fort Pond Bay fishing dock and ride west staying along water. Fall (after tick season) best.

Another beautiful trail in Hither Hills State Park. It was a beautiful fall day with perfect hiking weather.

Certainly the most scenic trail on the island. Jump the train tracks to hit the coastal trails and have a dip in the sound!!!! Only issue is lots of thorns so bring lots of tubes just in case you wind up walking the last mile like me lol

Good trail. Crosses tracks and run to the dunes. In the winter u can see water seals pretty cool. Also runs along an old navy work station. Beat time to ride is spring time. Slot of thorns. Can eat up tubes

Awesome trail. Ride it 3-4 times a week mix trails up. Good loop is 15-18 miles. Nice up and down hills. Sound sand spots which can turn u into a tree. Be careful. Crosses 3-4 roads. Very well marked trails. Parking on rte 114 is great

Nice walk. A little boring off of the beach. Aside from water, there's not much to see.
