Fire Road Trail at Massapequa Preserve

1 Walker St., Massapequa Park , NY

(Google Map)

How to find us: 
Meet us on the paved bridge just before the dirt path near the north end of the Mansfield Park parking lot at the Walker St. entrance. Watch out for bikes as you cross the asphalt bike path to the dirt path!

Does your dog like to walk in the woods, play in the water, and see their dog-friends or make new ones? If the answer is yes, then join us for our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Massapequa Preserve on Sat., Aug. 20th at 10 in the morning!

We’ll be walking the Fire Road Trail, a flat, wide, mostly shaded, dirt trail within Massapequa Preserve. We’ll walk about a mile down the trail, then turn onto a smaller trail that ends at a clearing with a creek and shallow pond. We’ll stop there for water and let the dogs swim and wade in the creek. Once the dogs have played and cooled off, we’ll head back up the trail to where we started. The entire walk will cover about 2 miles and take about 2 hours, including their “playtime”.

PLEASE NOTE: While there may be off-leash dogs on the trail, dogs attending the pack walk must be kept on-leash on the trail. Please be aware that some people may take their dogs off-leash when they are playing in the water.

Also please NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES as we are walking in a group and the dogs and their humans can get tangled.

Please don’t forget to bring poop bags as pick up is a must, and while the trail is shaded by trees, don’t forget to bring water for you and your pup.
