This trail is nice to just stretch your legs. Interesting to see the views of Arshamomaque Pond. Combined with its narrow western arm named Long Creek and its outlet to Southold Bay, Arshamomaque Pond is the largest of the North Fork's tidal ponds. The names Arshamomaque Pond, Mill Creek, as well as Hashamomuck Pond, are all used interchangeably today.

During the wet times of the spring and summer, the mosquitoes can get pretty annoying - bring repellant or a netted hat.
