It is a beloved resource, used by people from all over the region for hiking, mountain biking, bird and wildlife-watching and other activities. To join the walk, meet at 1:00pm at the plow turnaround at the end of Economou Road, Huntington. Be prepared to spend two hours out in the elements, including some walking over uneven and slippery surfaces.
