  • Not only is there so much history behind this beautiful sanitary, but it is a preserve for the most beautiful plant and animal life Long Island has to offer.  more »
  • It's was closed when we went this week, you need to call before going, especially in this time. Almost everything it's closed in Shelter Island  more »
  • A trip to Shelter Island is not complete without a visit to the Mashomack Preserve. Go there for an easy hike, to bird watch, or commune with nature.  more »

  • Took a beautiful five mile hike here, all of it easy peasy, just rolling hills and lovely landscapes. You can cut off into wider and wider circles through the preserve, which tailors your experience as far as how much time you have or how far you feel comfortable walking. Very relaxing stroll.
  • This is a very beautiful preserve, with undisturbed nature and very well kept trails. It is very convenient in location as it's entrance is located right of the 114 road, which connects to the north ferry and south ferry. You also have a high chance of seeing wildlife, while I was hiking I saw egrets, deer, lots of chipmunks and of course a plentiful variety of birds so bring some binoculars. I would probably say Hiking in this Preserve is the number one thing to do on Shelter island.
  • I love this park, wish I could bring my dog but it's a beautiful place.
  • I'm a regular visitor here to one of The Nature Conservancy's beautiful gems on lovely Shelter Island. Much to do here. Very family-friendly. Miles of great scenic hiking trails. You can also drive or hike out to the lovey historic Manor house. I have been to several birding events. They specialize in Educational events and outings. I highly recommend it!!
  • Beautiful preserve. Would definitely recommend for a nice family hike!
