The East Hampton Trails Preservation Society, Inc (EHTPS) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the creation and protection of trails, greenbelts, and open spaces in the Town of East Hampton. The diverse natural beauty of the East End attracts many who love its open spaces and spectacular scenic views. EHTPS enables locals and visitors to get close to nature by conducting free hikes every Wednesday and Saturday throughout the year. No reservations are required. Knowledgeable hike leaders guide every step of the 2 to 14 mile hikes. Most hikes are in the range of 3 to 5 miles.
EHTPS has been working for the preservation of greenbelt trails for 25 years and continues that tradition by actively working with state, county, and town officials. Members make presentations at public meetings and serve on committees related to open space planning and park management. Volunteers from EHTPS are deeply involved in trail planning, mapping, and maintenance activities and have also helped create trails.
The town of East Hampton has approximately two hundred miles of trails, including a continuous forty-five mile section of the Paumanok Path, stretching from the Southampton-East Hampton town line to the Montauk Lighthouse. It has become the main artery of the East Hampton trail system, containing numerous linkages to other trails. The Path connects many state, county, and town parks and also crosses private land with the cooperation of the landowners. This system is used and enjoyed by thousands of hikers, mountain bicyclists, and horseback riders every year.
