The Wonder of Mashomack

September 22nd, 2012

Quite possibly the best thing to do on your September weekend getaway to Shelter Island is a hike through Mashomack, the island’s wonderful 2100-acre nature sanctuary and one of the prize preserves of the Nature Conservancy.

Mashomack offers numerous, well-marked and easy trails to choose from in varying distance from 1.5 to 12 miles, offering a great combination of woodland, marsh, meadow and shorelines.     The mild temperatures of September makes it a perfect time to hike and the gentle buzz of insects is simply breathtaking.

There is also a great nature display in the historic building at the trail head.   Helpful Nature Conservancy volunteers will offer you a map and guide your hiking choices.   Do not miss the opportunity to experience one of the great natural wonders of the region!
