Great walk! Some muddy spots to navigate but overall easy walking and incredible views on a clear winter day.

Fantastic trail - especially in the off season with incredible views of the bluffs/oceans. Paths can be narrow in parts/muddy - so be ready to navigate. Highly recommend!

Who wouldn’t enjoy a bike ride along a cliff side trail hugging the Atlantic Coast with a backdrop of grass-swept hills with hidden WW2 bunkers peaking out! Love this trail!!

beautiful scenery, clear cut trails, spectacular views. still not sure if it's a loop, couldn't find trail markers around descent to ditch plains so just turned around. limited parking, maybe 20 spots, people parking on highway getting tickets so beware. I had to wait for a spot, but finally got one. probably empty during the week.

Never thought that I would use the sentence “we need to throw out these bags of ticks” after a hike. Do not use this trail during the summer. Absolutely disgusting. We were day tripping from the city and had to rush three hours home after the hike because our poor dog covered in hundreds of tiny deer ticks. TINY.

Not recommended for dogs during summer months. The ticks were all over our dogs despite our dogs walking directly in the middle of the narrowing trails away from the huge hedges/grass and/or being picked up to walk over overgrown tall grass, muddy pathways, and jutting rocks. The trail from the parking lot to the top of the cliffs is overgrown and increasingly narrow. When we reach the top of the cliff, there is only a wooden fence guarding the outlook. To continue along the cliffs would be unsafe for the dogs as there are many warning signs of cliff erosion. The only way down the cliff to the beach is either to continue along the tick-infested shrubbery path or slide down a steep cliff incline. Definitely not recommended for dogs. Beach goers were residents with their own man-made staircases leading down to the shore from their private homes. No clear marked staircases for hikers.

It was Okay. Weeds are a but overgrown and MAN the amounts of TICKS is incredible! Truly disgusting .... I guess this is a bit of a pest in the Montauk area since also Cedar Beach Trail was infested w ticks. I pulled apprx 100 tiny red ticks from my 9lb dog and abt 5 big ones. And that was WITH loads of tick repellant sprayed on him. Pretty views however, the park/preserve ranger should really do something about the infestation of ticks. Signs all over do not really do much.
