Hiking Fire Island

Beach walk

This hike was a dry run - somewhat literally - for a swim hike I'm leading for the Ramblers in August. We took the ferry to Watch Hill and, after touring the salt marsh, walked between the dunes and the southern shore for five miles to a breach created by Hurricane Sandy. Because the day was cool, we didn't stop to swim at the beach or to wade along the way.

I'm curious to see what it looks like on a warm, sunny day; hopefully I'll find out when we repeat it in August.
