|FACT: There are 300 miles of trails within Southampton Town.
It's a daunting task to keep them all clear and open for you, and STPS does its very best!
Every Thursday morning volunteers work on one of the trails, camaraderie and jokes are abundant. Usually delicious home baked
cookies reward those who show up. You are most welcome to help maintain this wonderful trail system.

STPS is a volunteer not-for-profit organization dedicated to protecting historic trails, preserving greenbelts and
open space, and creating new trail systems. Horses on Trails (HOT), a division of STPS encourages recreational
horseback trail riding. We offer free guided hikes, rides and kayak trips throughout Southampton and along the
Paumanok Path. All Are Welcome. Please join us!
The first thru-hiking campsite along the
125-mile Paumanok Path has been created
and approved by the East Hampton Town
Board this past May. It is located at Rod's
Valley Park (Fort Pond Bay Park, Benson
Point) property and may be accessed from
the eastern side of Hither Woods, not far off
the Paumanok Path. The site is only 14 miles
from the end of the trail at Montauk
Lighthouse. So, not a bad follow up hike
after a hike to camp. Up to 6 people may stay
at one time, maximum stay of 1 night. Permit
for stay is available to anyone over 18.
Anyone interested in obtaining permission
may contact Andrew Drake, Environmental
Analyst, Land Acquisition and Management,
Town of East Hampton. Phone:631-324-7420
