Honoring “Take a Hike Day” ── A Forest Walk to View Vernal Pools
Hike Leader: Melanie Meade, SOFO Education & Outreach Coordinator
Great Horned Owls sleep away the day. The dense woods shade unique flowering plants. This 2.3mile trail winds past vernal pools that are home to salamanders and toads. From the top of Tuckahoe Hill you can look north and see the Great Peconic Bay. Turn south and you can see the ocean. The path is a little steep, but the view is worth the effort!
