It's that time of year when the trees, plants, and flowers start blooming into color, with warmer temperatures that make shoreline walks increasingly more pleasant. Looking ahead to May 8, here are some hikes and walks in which to enjoy the outdoors.
At 9 a.m., the Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt has a three-mile hike planned at Little Long Pond from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Dai Dayton will lead the hike, which will start at the Friends' Greenbelt Nature Center at 1061 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike in Bridgehampton. She can be contacted at 631-745-0689.
Also on May 8, at 10 a.m. the East Hampton Trails Preservation Society will host a three-mile hike at Barcelona Neck, which is known for its panoramic views, interesting wetlands, and a beautiful oak and hickory forest. The meeting place is next to the Sag Harbor Golf Course, off of Route 114. Steve Murray will lead the walk, and can be contacted at 917-797-6265.
