Camp Hero is a family favorite for us. We love telling the kids the history of it and hiking the different trails. It is a little creepy but in a fun way. There are tons of picnic areas and photo opportunities.

Our friends had their wedding on Camp Hero. The views were absolutely incredible of the coastline and had a perfect vantage point on the lighthouse, if that's your kind of thing :) Would definitely recommend getting out there and "hiking" around the area.

This a great place to hike around and take in the views of the Atlantic. Parking is free during the week, but $8 on the weekends. Great place to visit while in Montauk!

Walkable any day. Either on trails which are better not in summer months due to ticks, or on the lightly traveled roads. Lovely ocean views from cliff overlooks. Can be busy on weekends particularly during peak fishing season.

We hiked Battery 113 Road, which was cool. It was a little weird that about 100 yards into the trail you walked through a hole in the chain link fence. Don't worry folks, that's the trail. The trail is very very well marked in most...More

This is a good driving tour with sites to stop along the way. This was a great history tour of post world war 2 and cold war.It was very interesting to see the abandoned giant radar, 3 artillery batteries, and the military base.
