Report: besides laying on the beach there are a few hiking loops you can take at robert moses. first, is the eastern section of the park, park at field 5. there is a boardwalk trail to the lighthouse that can be taken both ways, OR you could walk on the beach front one way. another GREAT hiking loop is at the western end of the park, park at field 2 and you can follow the beach front all the way to democrat point (about 1 mile in soft sand) the point is beautiful. you can take the north part of the park back at low tides, just follow the rock jetty along the bay side of the point. democrat point is a great place to kayak too. there are steamers and little necks in the flats and endangered birds nesting in the dunes. be sure to bring sunblock and water, the trip should take about 2hrs.
