FRESH POND LOOP (5 - 6 miles) Our hike starts with a brief walk along the mossy south side of tidal Fresh Pond to a stretch of the Paumanok Path lined with holly, birch and beech. We'll wind through the Bell Estate and stop at the site of an old Amagansett brick kiln, then road-walk to Barnes Landing for a beach walk back to our starting point. Hikers may need to remove footwear and cuff trousers to wade across narrow Fresh Pond inlet at the end of the hike. Moderate pace; finish by 1 p.m.. Meet at Fresh Pond Park, at the end of Fresh Pond Road in Amagansett. Hike leaders: Valerie King & David Jones[masked]

What we're about

East Hampton Trails Preservation Society is a not-for-profit association dedicated to establishment, protection, maintenance, and enjoyment of trails, paths, and natural lands in the Town of East Hampton and throughout New York State. Our activities include weekly guided hikes offered to the public free of charge throughout the year on East Hampton's almost 200 miles of trails. In warmer weather, we also offer opportunities for road cycling, and for paddling by kayak, canoe or SUP around the Hampton's numerous bays and harbors. Volunteer members of EHTPS help in trail planning, mapping and maintenance, as well as educational and social activities. Members enjoy many social events, including a winter holiday party, spring brunch, summer beach picnic, and occasional movable feasts. More information, as well as a link to our membership form (, is available on our website (
