A fast hike with an incredible payoff: breathtaking views of the ocean. the beach, and the hoodoos. Halfway to the ocean is a WWII bunker. It's boarded up but interesting to see. Stay on the trails! Lots of ticks.

This is not a strenuous hike; it took us about 45 minutes including lots of picture taking stops. After about 5-10 mins of walking, you are along the bluffs on the coast of the Atlantic. Wear sneakers!

Break up the day with a walk and take some pictures. We gave up when it seemed that the trail did not lead to Ditch Plains Beach.

Delightful walking trails along the top of the dunes overlooking the Atlantic. We walked from Montauk to Ditch Plains and back. Stopped for a fresh lemonade at the Ditch Witch.

The park is on the east side of the road as you leave Montauk headed toward the Lighthouse. Very clean, free and about a quarter of the trail is along the ocean cliffs. Saw a few joggers and mountain bikers but very quiet. More like a locals place.

We wanted to go to Ditch Plains but didn't have a Town Permit nor could we buy a day pass, so we parked free at Shadmoor State Park, hiked 20 minutes down to the bluffs and onto the beach at Ditch Plains, the views and the walk were awesome !, bring backpack chairs

We do this easy hike every year with our nature group: The Littoral Society. It is an easy relatively flat trail that leads to magnificent bluffs that overlook the Atlantic Ocean. We passed World War 2 relics as we strolled. My husband and I have never gotten a tick on this hike. Please wear long pants and bug repellant (we... More

We did a number of different hikes on our recent 4 day trip to Montauk. This was one of our favorites due to the cliffside seaside views. I do agree with the other posting to do a tick check after your hike.

Grew up on Seaside Ave. so I know ticks very well. Moved away years ago so when we came back to visit my first request was a walk out into the cliffs. Can't park on Seaside Ave. , we would get a ticket now with no house anymore. So we accessed the park from the Shadmore parking lot in 25.... More

Very interesting walk out to the ocean with beautiful views. On the way, pass concrete bunkers from WWII - historical. We stopped here on a bike ride - took a short hike and snack break and back on the road. Great stop, interesting - would definitely recommend.
