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.

Coming east make a left at the tennis look for trail on right. Park on the road. Trail climbs up into woods and dunes. All of the trails in Hither Woods can be ridden in some kind of loop this system can take you all the way to Fort Pond Bay.

Nice walk. A little boring off of the beach. Aside from water, there's not much to see.
