If moving more is your new year's resolution, these upcoming treks might do the trick (this week, anyway).
A Montauk Point State Park naturalist will lead three-mile hikes to see seals and shorebirds on Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. Hikers will set out from the Montauk Point State Park office in the lower parking lot at the Lighthouse and should dress for cold weather. Binoculars are suggested. The cost is $4 per person. There is no charge for children under 3. Reservations, which are required, can be made at 631-668-5000 or by searching "seal walks at Montauk Point" at eventbrite.com.
On Monday, the Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt will host a full wolf-moon hike. The meeting place is the South Fork Natural History Museum at 5:30 p.m. Don't expect to hear a wolf, but do expect light refreshments afterward. Registration ahead of time is required by emailing [email protected].
Irwin Levy will lead an East Hampton Trails Preservation Society walk in East Hampton Village on Wednesday at 10 a.m. The four-mile route will begin and end in the Reutershan Parking Lot near the tennis courts, including, Mr. Levy said, "historically significant buildings, majestic trees, and the East Coast’s most beautiful beach."
On Jan. 22, Laurie DeVito will guide a woods walk of about four and a half miles at 10 a.m. through the Grace Estate, past Scoy and Alewife Ponds, to Cedar Point County Park. Walkers will meet on Northwest Road, about half a mile south of Alewife Brook Road.
