There are two trees down on the trail but I was able yo scramble over them. There are a lot of bugs but it is hot and sticky. I went covered and used a link roller after. It is short perfect for a hot day with nice views. I took a side trail on the way out and got an excellent view of the ospreys. The side trail is not marked on this map but it is on the one at the entrance. There are diverse ecosystems for such a short trail. At the start there is a RR Crossing

First to Review

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.
