Upcoming events


Having North Haven Trails Associationís events on this website will give members of the group an additional means of accessing their schedule of hikes.  Posting these events will also help encourage the residents of North Haven to visit the Village owned Genet Creek property and support NHTAís efforts to protect this natural resource.


Use of the North Haven Trail System is limited to North Haven residents or their guests. This is a small and very ecologically sensitive area.  It is an enormous challenge to steward it.  Restricted access will help ensure the sustainability of the resource.


This group has a clear vision for the preservation of this lovely area and their enthusiasm is contagious. If you would like to know more about this initiative feel free to contact the North Haven Trails Associationís President, John Hilgeman 631-725-4764.


The Association is working hard to make sure that its activities are not only enjoyable, but also educational. The schedule of upcoming events follows.




January 1, 2008 (Tuesday):  Participate in the North Haven Trails Associationís Start Your New Year Right Trail walk starting in front of the North Haven Village Hall on Ferry Road (Rt 114) at 10:00 AM.  This will take approximately 45 minutes, followed by refreshments.  This is our most popular hike so come and enjoy the first day of 2008 on the Jeanne Vielbig Loop Trail. 

Contact John Hilgeman (631 725 4764) for further information. 



There are over 140 members in the Trails Association. As the membership has grown, so have its activities. If you can spare a little time help would be appreciated in several areas. Please let us know if you can assist with trail clearing and maintenance, trail walks or media presentation. Some of our future plans include a kayaking trip into Genet Creek this summer and clearing a previously unused section of the trail. Your help would be greatly appreciated and would make the trail system even better.

The North Haven Trails Association, Inc. (NHTA) conducts trail walks, educational activities and trail maintenance on the Stock Farm Preserve by Genet Creek in North Haven. 

On November 9, 2003, NHTA held its annual meeting at the North Haven Village Hall. The highlight of the meeting was the dedication of a teak park bench to Jeanne Vielbig, the Vice President of NHTA.  The members of the North Haven Trails Association donated this bench in recognition of her many years of service to NHTA as its former President and current Vice President.  Jeanne, is celebrating her 90th birthday this year, and has for many years, been active in civic affairs in both Sag Harbor and North Haven. She was instrumental in the creation of the North Haven Trails System and still enthusiastically participates in the trail groupís activities



Fred Thiele, Assemblyman from the Second Assembly District, presented Jeanne with a citation commending her for her work on behalf of the community and the environment. Laura Nolan, Mayor of Sag Harbor, thanked Jeanne for her leadership in developing the trails in North Haven and announce that the Loop Trail would be renamed in Jeanneís honor.  Dai Dayton and Kenneth Kindler completed the ceremony by presenting Jeanne with a lifetime membership to the Southampton Trails Preservation Society.  Jeanne then thanked all of the speakers and all of those who work so hard to make the nature trails accessible and enjoyable.
