Anyone interested in off-road bicycling must visit Montauk's Hither Woods. Located at the western edge of the village, and running to the beginning of the Napeague Stretch, Hither Woods is over 3,000 acres of diverse oak woods, grass lands, walking dunes and sandy beaches. Hither Woods is a priceless natural resource, offering hikers and bikers year round access to unspoiled nature.
Our rides will access the best of Hither Wood’s nature with rambles through the dense oak and mountain laurel of Rod’s Valley and Redmond’s Path. At the Fort Pond Bay Overlook you will be treated to the spectacular views of Culloden Point and Fort Pond Bay where the Amistad came ashore in 1839.
On the Coastal Trail, a narrow single track path which traverses Block Island Sound, immerse your feet into the warm waters of Lawsons beach and view the impressive vista through “The Keyhole” , a masterpiece notch carved out by the last ice age overlooking Gardiners Island.
Tighten your seatbelts on the Stephen Talkhouse Path, a narrow single-track trail which meanders in a rollercoaster fashion for about four miles along the north shore of Hither Woods. It passes the Indian House ruins believed to be the dwelling of Stephen Talkhouse before culminating at the Nominicks Overlook, a vantage point with views of Napeague Harbor and Gardiners Island.
