Fire Island 3-Day Trek
The Fire Island Trek is a three day, twenty mile hike beginning at the Wilderness Visitor Center and ending at the Fire Island Lighthouse. The Trek is open to anyone who can meet the physical demands of the program: walking twenty miles in three consecutive days, walking long distances in loose sand and being exposed to the elements including the sun, wind and possibly rain.
Limited logistical support is available, but you must provide for your own transportation and pay for some meals along the way. A $100.00 fee is charged for this program to cover the costs of lodging, some meals, and logistical support. Registration is required as space is limited. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
