LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Edgewood Oak Brush Plains Preserve!
Sunday, September 18th, 10:30 AM to 12 PM
Edgewood Oak Brush Plains Preserve
Commack Road, Deer Park, NY
How to find us: Meet us at the Gazebo next to the parking lot!
Please join LI-DOG for our September Pack Walk™ at Edgewood Oak Brush Plains Preserve in Deer Park! Edgewood Oak Brush Plains is a state-owned, 843-acre nature preserve situated within the towns of Babylon, Huntington and Islip. It was the site of the former Edgewood State Hospital.
The trails and paths in the preserve are ideal for hiking, biking, jogging, birding and, of course, dog walking! Old Commack Road, a concrete 1.6- mile road that runs north-south, is now part of the preserve’s trail network. There are also many nice flat, pine needle-covered trails that are great for dog walking.
Parking at the preserve is limited, so we are limiting this Pack Walk to 50 people.
We’ll gather for our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ —a guided group on-leash dog walk–at the gazebo near the parking lot. We’ll begin our walk at the Main Entrance and head into the park from there.
The walk will cover about two miles and take a little over an hour.
PLEASE NOTE: While there may be off-leash dogs on the trails, dogs attending the LI-DOG Pack Walk™ must be kept on leash at all times. 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.
Please NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES as we are walking in a group and the dogs and their humans can get tangled.
