Wainscott / East Hampton Village

Daniel’s Hole

 

 

To get to this destination, head east on Montauk Highway, pass the parking area for Georgica Pond in Wainscott; follow the signs for the airport and head north on Daniel’s Hole Road.  Follow Daniel’s Hole Road 1.8 miles, past the airport. Park on the road shoulder near where the power lines cross the road.  Enter a driveway on the west side of the road, just south of the power line right-of-way (ROW).  This gravel road leads to a communications tower.  If you walk this driveway a short distance you will find an unmarked trail that enters the woods up an embankment by the right side of the tower.  There is a short segment of trail that runs along the driveway.   It visits the vernal wetland off to the left called Daniel’s Hole.

This loop trail is 2.5 miles long, running first west for about a mile parallel to the south side of the ROW; after crossing over the ROW it runs back east along its north side. When the trail meets up with the PP follow the white blazes across the ROW.  Almost immediately after crossing the power lines take a right turn off of the PP and head back east along the “Switchback Trail.”  Faded white dots mark some of the trees along this trail.  Pass a large glacial erratic and continue along some looping turns up to higher elevations.  The trail reaches the road a short distance north of where you began the hike.
