At a very quick pace we’ll leave from the Spinney Road parking area heading southwest on the Pine Barrens Trail, then up into the NYS lands for the Blue Loop, then back south for the notorious 3 Miles of Sand under the power lines eastward, then hook around Bellows Pond, and finally back northwest past Sears and Owl Ponds; bring water and snacks; meet at Spinney Road parking area (L.I.E. eastbound to Exit 71; at foot of exit, turn right onto C.R. 24; stay on 24 through the traffic circle in Riverhead, head for Hampton Bays; Spinney Road will be on the right, about eight miles from the Expressway); severely adverse weather cancels, so call or text that morning if in doubt!
9:00 AM – approx.17 ½ miles – fast – varied
