Fun Trail Ride

Sunday, May 7, 2017 - 10:00 a.m. (rain or shine)

Come join us for our annual fun filled ride/hike through beautiful Connetquot Park Preserve. Hikers set out at 10:00 a.m. for a guided 4-mile Greenbelt walk. Enjoy the peaceful beauty of the trails and woodlands of the first N.Y.S. preserve. The clubhouse will be open for tours. A leisurely ride of a few miles, or a walk on your own, if you don’t want to join the guided hike, will take you through some of the most historic trails on Long Island. There will be a Chinese Raffle for many wonderful prizes donated by generous friends. Everyone receives 5 raffle tickets to start, plus the "Osprey" special for $20. There will also be a 50-50 drawing. The last riders will go out by 2:00 p.m. so we can draw the winners at 3:30 p.m.

A donation of only $30 pre-paid by April 28th or $40 after April 28th includes bagels and a sumptuous lunch buffet and dessert bar. All profits will stay in Connetquot to enhance the preserve’s many and varied programs and services. This is YOUR park preserve - please support it.

RESERVATIONS AND PRE-PAYMENT WILL BE ACCEPTED A FEW WEEKS PRIOR TO THE TRAIL RIDE.

THE FRIENDS NEED YOUR HELP TO KEEP THE TRAIL RIDE/HIKE TRADITION GOING!

Only your email address is required.
