The seal haul out trail is a great hike that begins at a trailhead on Montauk hwy, about 1 mile west of the lighthouse. The trailhead is on the north side of the hwy.

My husband and I hired bikes and had a great day cycling around Montauk. We found it fun and easy to cycle around Montauk park. I thought the warning signs as you enter about ticks and poison ivy were a good idea, as we are from the UK and not known what to look for. It has lots of natural... More
