Tucked away on Chapel Lane in Greenport, the enchanting Arshamomaque Preserve (920 Chapel Lane) is a gem of a trail where you can experience the natural beauty of the North Fork.

From the parking area, there are several trails to explore that wind through pristine woodlands, and wetlands and meadow. Remember to pack bug spray and check for ticks!

Follow a spur to climb the tower and enjoy a view of Arshamomaque pond, where you can watch for egrets, salamanders, herons, hawks, turtles, osprey and even otters.

We walked the trails on a recent summer day to observe wildlife, mushrooms and fungi and enjoy the view of the pond.
