You can start at the state run restaurant and walk along the rocks along the ocean and watch surfers, fishermen as you walk along the flat jetty. Easy to walk and a nice view of lighthouse.

It is a very pretty end of New York but needing to pay to park is asking too much. I have seen as nice in Maine without feeling fleeced.

Saw the Montauk lighthouse. The views are magnificent. Just an incredibly beautiful experience. We drove around it, and then went to Hither Hills, as well as some other nearby beaches.

There is a $8 fee to park and get in the lighthouse, there is also a cafe if you get hungry. There are many trails you can walk in the park however there is a huge tick problem- and personally I'm not willing to risk it and don't trust "tick spray". I'd rather stop off at the look out points... More

Very enjoyable walking along to rocky scenic beach. $8 to park and a separate charge for the lighthouse but worth it as the admission is put to good use in preserving this area.

The Montauk lighthouse was commissioned by Pres. George Washington! A wonderful museum and gift shop as well as the opportunity to walk up the stairs of the Lighthouse! Also walk down to the base of the park and the stone filled beach - a fisherman's delight.

Beatiful Lighthoude and view. Went the day before the Hurricane in 2013. It's a long drive but a great area and view. The staff was Informed and tried to be interesting about the lighthouse. Not a disrespect to them, just to me and light houses.

We thought you could go from the lighthouse and walk along the side sound and back down to the highway through trails rather than stay along the beach and main roads. That really wasn't the case and we got really lost in the thicket of the woods and there were ticks! Just stick to the shore and it's beautiful!

Beautiful hiking and overlooks. Make sure you bring your tick spray. They do have a tick problem in the area.

There are a lot of hiking path. also a trail for bikers. We just enjoyed the view and the silence. There are also a couple of Viewing Points. Stop there - it's worth it
