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.

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