A shorter mileage backpack on the sand to visit a pristine wilderness area with camping on the beach. Approximately 5 miles to the camping area to set up our tents, then continuing to hike (approximately 5 miles R/T) to the inlet created by Hurricane Sandy. Accessible by public transportation (LIRR and ferry to Davis Park). All drinking water must be carried in. Our group spotted deer and fox here last year. Limited by permit to 8 participants with proper gear.
