From the Long Island Expressway, take Exit 51 and travel south on Rte. 231 for 7.5 miles to the intersection of Rte 27A (Montauk Highway). Turn left (east) onto Rte. 27A and proceed 3 miles. Turn right (south) into the Admiralty Condominiums entrance (brick wall with gatehouse). Tell the guard you are visiting The Nature Conservancy trail. Past the gatehouse, turn left onto Admiral's Drive East. Go about .4 mile and turn right onto Harbor Lane. Park opposite the kiosk for residences #114-117. Walk into the left of the driveway for #114, following the oak leaf sign and arrow on the driveway light post. 30 feet in, on the left, look for the trail entrance gate marked by another oak leaf sign. Walk across the lawn to the trail.

Please close the gate when you go in and out.
