How to find us: We will meet in the small parking lot near the trail head which only has space for about 15 cars, but the parking lot at Kahler’s Pond Town Park, which is just across the road, has ample space, so park in that lot and walk across the road to meet up with us.

On Sunday, Nov 19th, please join LI-DOG for our final LI-DOG Pack Walk™ of the 2023 season, but our first-ever at Terrell River County Park in Center Moriches! Our Pack Walks–group on-leash walks–are a great way for you and your dog to socialize with other pet parents and their pups while enjoying some of Long Island’s beautiful parks and beaches.

Please note: This Pack Walk is on our schedule for Saturday, November 18th, but we’ve had to change the date to Sunday, Nov. 19th.

Terrell River County Park consists of 263 acres of passive parkland located on Montauk Highway, opposite Kahlers Pond Town Park in Center Moriches. The park is open for hiking, nature walks and birdwatching. It is also popular with local residents as the trails go north and south from Montauk Highway to Moriches Bay and on-leash dogs are allowed.

We will be walking on the main Terrell River Trail, a fairly wide loop-trail, which is 2.7 miles long. There is a turn-off that you can take to shorten the walk, but it is only about a half-mile in. You can also just turn around and return the way you came. The trail is easy to follow and well-marked.

Please Note: It has been reported this year that ticks have been a problem, so make sure that your dog is on a preventative, and we also advise that you and your pup to stay out of the tall grasses and stay on the main trail.

Please be aware that dogs must remain leashed AT ALL TIMES on our Pack Walk. Make sure to bring poop bags–as clean-up is a must–and water for you and your dog. Also, please no retractable leashes as we’ll be walking as a group and people and dogs can get tangled.

Please arrive 15 minutes early so you can sign in and we can start on time.

To RSVP, go to:

**In the event of inclement weather, please check our Meetup or Facebook Group as we will post any weather-related changes by 9 a.m. on Sunday morning. If there is no announcement, the Pack Walk is on!**

We hope you can join us at Terrell River County Park on Sun., Nov. 19th!

Fire Island Lighthouse Beach

Bayshore, NY

How to Find Us: Meet us at the far eastern end (towards the lighthouse) of Parking Field 5 at Robert Moses State Park. We’ll walk to Fire Island National Seashore from there.

On SUNDAY, OCT. 1ST, please join us for our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ along the beautiful Fire Island National Seashore! Our Pack Walks™–group on-leash walks–are a great way for you and your dog to socialize with other pet parents and their pups while enjoying some of Long Island’s beautiful parks and beaches. (Please note: This is a rescheduled date because of rain again.)

For this Pack Walk™, we will meet at the far eastern end of Parking Field 5 (towards the lighthouse) at Robert Moses State Park. Please note that dogs are not allowed on the beach at Robert Moses. We will begin our walk, by walking north and east along the broad grassy shoulder of Robert Moses Parkway and then onto the dirt road that runs south of the lighthouse. There are great views of the lighthouse from the dirt road and the main path to the lighthouse.

Opposite the sign for the Fire Island Lighthouse, we’ll cross over the dunes on a pre-made path to the ocean beach. At that point, you’ll be able either to turn right and head back along the ocean to Robert Moses or if you want to do a bit longer walk, you’ll be able to turn left and walk further East towards Kismet, before doubling back towards Robert Moses. The shorter walk will cover about 1.5 miles and take about 45 minutes, the longer walk will be closer to 2.5 miles. In either case, you will be walking along the shore with your dog enjoying wide open views of sea, sand and sky.

Please be aware that dogs must remain leashed AT ALL TIMES on the Pack Walk. Make sure to bring poop bags–as clean-up is a must–and water for you and your dog. Also, please no retractable leashes as we’ll be walking as a group and people and dogs can get tangled.

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. 19th 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 to let the dogs wade and swim.

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’re playing in the water.

Please NO retractable leashes as we are walking in a group and 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!
