On Saturday, my wife, Rachel, and I went for a breathtaking hike along the new Amsterdam Beach trail. According to my GPS, the hike is approximately one mile from the parking area to bluffs. From there we walked a short distance eastward down to the beach.
We have walked most of the trails in the County Park over the years but we were truly amazed at the new and beautiful sights experienced along the way of this new gem of a trail system. It is by far one of the nicest trails in Montauk. The arbor of holly trees is truly spectacular and must be seen.
You can see photos of the trail and its views here.
We met quite a few people along the way from East Hampton and Amagansett. We also met people from Boston and Providence, too.
Seems like word is traveling quickly about this wonderful new trail system.

My wife and I took the short hike today around 9am. The hike from the parking lot to the beach is about 1 & 1/2 miles. The trail is 90 % shaded and is an easy walk. The view is nice at the beach. Once you get to the beach, you really can’t walk on it because of all the large rocks. There appears to be a large amount of black colored oil absorbed into the banks as well as a car tire that also got washed up on shore. Not a pretty site ! There are nicer walks then this with better views in Montauk. I would not advise taking this walk.
