East Hampton Village Tour with East Hampton Trails Preservation Society (7miles)

Join us for a special day trip out to East Hampton to tour the area with the East Hampton Trails Preservation Society's President, Irwin Levy. Note this is NOT a 'Home of the Stars' tour but a rare chance to learn about the history of this beautiful enclave founded in 1648.

Walk Details
From the Jitney or RR, we will walk Main Street to James Lane, where East Hampton History comes to life. Guild Hall, Mulford Farm, the Lion Gardiner Mill Cottage barely scratch the surface. We'll continue into the estate section and Georgica for a glimpse of Grey Gardens and the iconic 19th century boarding house, The Apaquogue. We'll return with Lily Pond Lane for a stop at Main Beach (there are bathrooms here, and in the village parking lot near Jitney/RR). We'll continue east along a "secret" trail with views of Hook Pond, where a shore walk will bring us to Wiborg Beach and Highway Behind The Pond. We'll explore the Village Nature Trail and walk back to the village center.

Things to remember:
* Bring sunscreen, hat, windbreaker & adequate water for the walk.
* Pack food for our lunch break. While there may be places to stop along the way, they will be crowded & pricey so best we don't
* There will be time to linger in town after the walk to see the beautiful homes and grab a bite to eat before returning to the train.
