An ideal way to welcome spring, hiking this treasure of a state park is truly one of the season's most rewarding Long Island outdoor activities. Nature on the Move is a 4-mile guided trek of Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve's western section, rife with scenic meadows, forests, and over 200 species of birds. To guarantee a spot, you'll need to call (631) 423-1770 and notify the park between March 14-27th. Stretching across 1,750 acres of northern Long Island, you're encouraged to further explore the magnificent park when the hike is over, from coastal views of Connecticut across the water, to its many vibrant gardens.
Purchased in 1921 by Marshall Field III, the park began as an English-style estate, country club, and hunting preserve, home to one of the most opulent Gold Coast Mansions of the era. It wasn't until 1961 that the State of New York paid $4 million to turn the land into a public park.
