[Exploratory]Twin Lakes Preserve + (Directions Below)

  • March 1, 2014 · 12:00 PM

. Saturdays South Trail Twin Lakes walk will start in Wantagh by the bridge that crosses the Wantagh Pkwy. The bridge is located at the corner of Beltagh Ave. and Birch Dr. I’ll be there at 11:30am to greet attending members. The walk will start at 12pm. This will be about a 4.2 mile walk. 

Directions> Rt.135 to exit 3. Make a right on Jerusalem Ave. and go about 1.4 miles it to Holiday Park Dr. (first left west of the Wantagh Pkwy.). After turning left on Holiday Park Dr. make a quick left on Beltagh Ave. Go about half a mile to Birch Dr. and park. 

Nearest address> 3245 Beltagh Ave. Wantagh, 11793





Twin Lakes is located just north of Sunrise Hwy in Wantagh. The trail around the lakes is mostly narrow, uneven and deeply rooted.  There are also some makeshift stairways involved. There will be a few occasions where we’ll be walking across water on narrow walkways (3 ft. wide. See photo). This walk will be 3.5 to 4 miles (estimate). This is listed as "Exploratory"  because we'll be taking a new route to the preserve which means a new meeting place. Our meeting place will be emailed to those attending. Please always check your emails before leaving for walking events.

AR & CW list members will not be added to this event.

**Those who haven't paid their yearly dues ($10) can do so at this event.

    It was a fun fun walk around twin lakes and it was nice to explore different paths in a familiar area. A nice nice group of people to walk with on a sunny sunny day. I would have to say that it was a hip-hip-hooray kind of day. Another great walk by leader Lee!!

    Twin Lakes was another win-win walk! The weather was sunny, crisp and cool without the biting wind, and the company was diverse and lively. Although there were a few spots were we had to be extra careful due to the (seemingly) ever-presence of snow and ice on the trail(s), all in all it was a very pleasant day. Lunch at the Massapequa Diner was a bonus. Thanks to Lee and his assistant Loren! Hope to see everyone again soon.

    Excellent, challenging, and great walk. I am so happy I walked the whole thing. Beautiful and sunny day out. Wonderful group that was there to support me through some of the icy patches and it was scary walking through the areas near the cliffs that lead to the frozen water. Great group at the Massapequa Diner and lots of fun and laughs. Since the Meetup sites have been going up and down, I do hope my rating goes through. Thank You Lee so much for continuing to ask me how my foot is doing through the walk but I did feel confident that I was able to keep up with everyone with the walk but a little scared navigating on the ice. Fun day with everyone and it was so good to see you all.

    Has anybody here seen my old friend Lee? He's copping a plea about the site being down. Saying he has a headache without showing a frown. Lee, have no fear, for Sugar Bear is back in town.
    Oh crap, now I got a headache !!!
