Description

Take your pup to Shadmoor State Park and you’ll pawbably get a big wet kiss of appreciation! This gorgeous piece of land is just east of Montauk. Not only is it beautiful, it also has some historical significance. During World War II, the pawperty was part of the coastal defense system.  In fact, you and your pup will catch a glimpse of two old artillery bunkers that are nestled on the bluffs.

If your pup wants to enjoy postcard pawfect scenery, this is the place to be. The park’s terrain is made up of rolling hills, sandstone hoodoos, and 100 foot bluffs.  The best way to see all of the park’s wild beauty is to go for a hike. A small system of nature trails weaves through the pawperty. Your pup can sniff their way around the freshwater wetlands, bluffs, and open fields. If they are feeling adventurous, follow a spur trail or two. Some sections of the trails pass through thick vegetation of black cherry trees, sand plain gerardia, shadbush.  You’ll also find some elevated observation decks where you can watch the many birds that call this place home. Remember to pick up after your pup and always have enough water on hand.

Besides the puptastic hiking trails, the park also has 2,400 feet of sandy beach. So when you are through walking around the bluffs, head down to the water so your pup can feel the sand beneath their paws. They’ll have a blast chasing the waves, digging holes, and wading in the sea. Spread out a blanket and spend the afternoon gazing at the Atlantic Ocean and searching for treasures that wash ashore. Paddle boarding, fishing, and surfing are also pupular activities. Nothing beats a day at the beach with your four legged pal!

No bones about, your pup will go mutts over this place!
