Back by popular demand .... the East Hampton Trail Maps!


East Hampton Trails Preservation Society


It’s time to turn on the old trail,

our own trail, the out trail.

Pull out, pull out on the Long Trail,

the trail that is always new.

-- Rudyard Kipling

Please note the following slight changes in the schedule format:  The date now precedes the day. Also, the mileage is now featured in the headline, rather than in the description. We hope this makes the schedule easier to use.

We will resume the 10 A.M. starting time this month.

Call for any additional information.

The October meeting will be held on October 13th, same time, same place.
