Out here on the East End there are many preserves that people are allowed to hike through. Although some trails are better than others, one of my favorites is the Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge. It is a 187-acre area that has a 1.2-mile trail, which leads to the beach.
At the beach, there are benches and a cute shaded place to sit and rest. Also, along the trails, there are turkeys and deer, and birds that will eat seeds from your hands. During the fall, Morton is a great place to go because the leaves are turning colors and the leaves are falling. But be careful, stay on the trail so you don’t get ticks.
The refuge is at 2595 Noyack Rd., Sag Harbor. Search online for Morton Wildlife Refuge and check out its beauty!
