Reservations for required permits must be obtained through Recreation.gov. Due to the breach at Old Inlet, access to both east and west wilderness camping zones must now be from Davis Park or access points west, and involve a 2½ to 10 mile hike. More »
Fall Twilight Trek
The Fall Twilight Trek is a seven hour, non-stop, nine mile hike beginning at the Fire Island Pines and ending at the Fire Island Lighthouse. The Twilight Trek is open to anyone who can meet the physical demands of the program: walking nine miles in seven hours, walking long distances in loose sand and being exposed to the elements including the sun, wind and possibly rain. Registration is required as space is limited. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
