Sept. 15: Five Places to Enjoy Fall Foliage

There are a number of local spots to view fall's colors.

With 305 acres and seven miles of hiking trails, the Quogue Wildlife Refuge has plenty of opportunities to see all the colors fall has to offer. The refuge is open daily and on September 25, the refuge will host a fall foliage hike at 10 a.m. For more information, click here.

Preserved by the Town of Southampton in 2007 for $16 million, the Former Nassau County Girl Scout Camp is home home to 65 acres of woodlands. And where there is woodlands, there will be colorful leaf changes.  The park is expected to eventually open as a campground for area scouts and there is a movement to open it to the community for tent camping.

Sears Bellows County Park in Hampton Bays touts 693 acres of hiking trains and protected Pine Barrens.  Spend a fall evening camping under the stars and then hiking the trails to enjoy the park's fall splendor.

If you're looking for a quiet place to enjoy the changing colors of fall, check out the Quogue Village Wetlands, which is less than a mile east of the Post Lane bridge. The preserve features 17 acres and a board-walked trail. For more information, click here.

5.The Dwarf Pines Plains Preserve
