Fall Twilight Trek

Group on trail through swale at Sailors Haven.
Experience Fire Island at a quieter time of year, during late September. On the Fall Twilight Trek, you'll explore a variety of barrier island habitats, as well as the western communities of Fire Island.
 

Take a day hike by the sea and witness the beauty of the barrier beach in autumn.

The Fall Twilight Trek is a 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.
