Rescheduled from May. Hopefully the weather will cooperate this time!

Who’s ready for a hike with dogs? Back by popular demand, we have rescheduled LI-DOG’s Pack WalkTM & Hike on the Pine Trail to Sandy and Grassy Ponds for Sat., Aug. 27th (Rain date: Sun., Aug. 28th). This is a great 4.3-mile, out-and-back hike that goes through part of the Long Island Pine Barrens. The rewarding hike is known for its sights including the remains of a very hot brush fire in the mid-1980s and two beautiful ponds. The trail itself is mostly flat dirt, but opens up to a short sandy area crossing the power line section.

You can expect the hike to take three hours total. Don’t forget to bring water for you and your dog. Also, dress appropriately for the weather, but sneakers or hiking boots and pants are recommended. Also, as ticks are ubiquitous on Long Island, bring bug spray for yourself and tick medication/collar for your pup.

We look forward to seeing you and your dog on the Pine Trail on Saturday!

Please check back here Friday night or Saturday morning to confirm the Pack Walk is taking place as planned. Rain date is Sunday.
