Explore a fascinating cultural landscape and natural history. This ranger-guided walk from the Old Mastic House to the Old South Bay follows roads well used by the Floyd family from the mid-1700s. Along the way, discover signs of historic uses of the property. Pass through fields and woods, along mounds and ditches, cultural plantings, fresh water creeks, and the salt marsh on Moriches Bay.

Dress for the weather (layers of winter clothing-including head and neck coverage-are good). Wear sturdy boots; pack a drink or snack, and be prepared for a 3-mile roundtrip walk.
