Fun trail to hike with gorgeous views of the Sound. A brackish creek and tidal pool beneath the bluffs gives the chance to see some interesting marine life. Horseshoe crabs, Hermit crabs, trout from the Nissequogue river, assorted fish from the sound, ospreys, snowy egrets, and cormorants all can be found in the area.
If you are not familiar with this area, trails are not easy to find at first. The numerous trails are all connected to each other so it makes for an interesting hike.. Overall experience was good and views of LI were beautiful. Well worth the journey.
