Fall, leaves, fall;  die, flowers, away;

Lengthen night and shorten day;

Every leaf speaks bliss to me

Fluttering from the autumn tree…

--Emily Brontë

November is a great time to get out and enjoy the sights and scents of late autumn on the East End.  Call for more information on any of these scheduled hikes.

The next meeting will be held on December 1 at 7:30 P.M. in Ashawagh Hall

November 1,  Saturday  GRACE ESTATE / A SAMPLER 10 A.M.  (3 miles)

Up Van Scoys Pond Rd we go to Kirk’s Place and then an unexpected turn to the west with out backs to the sun as we walk the Northwest Harbor beach to Mile Hill Rd.  A short road walk will take us to Ralph’s Landing Rd and then to Whalebone Landing Rd through the five corners and back down Scoy’s Pond Rd.  Meet at the schoolhouse plaque on Northwest Rd, about 3/10 of a mile from Alewive Brook Rd intersection.

November 15, Saturday  NORTHWEST RAMBLE 10 A.M. (4 + miles)

Leaders: Steve and Laurie Tamber 

November 19, Wednesday  CEDAR POINT 10 A.M. (3 miles)

No Wednesday hike this week due to the holiday; there is a Friday hike instead.

November 28, Friday  POINT WOODS 10 A.M. (3-4 miles)

Work off some of those turkey-day calories on a trail that offers much to be thankful for.  Enjoy lush holly, birch, beech and sycamore trees and a stunning view of the Atlantic.  Meet at Camp Hero Rd in Montauk, off Rt. 27, about 1 mile east of Deep Hollow Ranch.  Leader: Ed Porco 

November 29,  Saturday  NORTHWEST EXPLORATION 10 A.M. (4 miles)

Enjoy over 1000 acres of preserved town and county woodland, much of it, as it was when the Northwest was a thriving community 300 years ago.  Meet at the schoolhouse plaque at the sharp curve on the northern end of Northwest Road in East Hampton, off Alewive Brook Rd.  (Look for the HIKE TODAY sign). 

Leader:  Gene Makl
