Hither Hills state park is the largest and most diverse of Eastern, and arguably all of, Long Island's preserves. Together with The walking dunes to the east and Hither Woods and Laurel Canyon to the east it encompasses dunes, hardwood forest, scrub, bluffs, beach, and much more. With over seven miles of dramatically steep and remote coastline, Hither Woods also has the longest pristine waterfront the region has to offer.
Walking dunes- A visit to hither woods is not complete without seeing the cranberry bogs, pine forests, and ever shifting sand dunes (some over 100 feet high) that makes up the walking dunes.
Laurel Canyon- although the name is somewhat exaggerated, this area is made up of picturesque hills, valleys, and laurel patches. Visit in late spring for pink and white blossoms.
Hither Hills- Forested, with large sandy hills that have been covered with pines over the years. This section offers some breathtaking views from hill tops.
Hither woods- The most diverse segment, Hither woods contains lakes (fresh pond), deciduous forests, grassland, and the most impressive coastline. Oceanfront is lined with bluffs that drop steeply down from the woods.
