Had the birds eating out of my hands - so thrilling :) Lovely walk to the beach. I will be returning with my grown children. The parking lot is not huge, so it can't get too crowded- i liked that.

This may be my all time favorite place to go in Sag Harbor. Walking along the trails here and the preserve feeding the birds is a most rewarding experience. If you are a "nature nut" then I highly recommend this visit.

Very nice place! Very overrun with ticks. Be prepared before hand. There's a short walk through woods that leads out to a beach. Very pretty. Have seen wild turkeys! Birds eat right out of your hand. Chipmunks also enjoy a snack. Be aware of what is appropriate for them to eat and don't leave a mess behind. Plan to visit... More

What a great way to spend the day! Beautiful preserve, lovely trails with a variety of wildlife and birds tame enough to eat out of your hands if your patient and bring your own seed. Looking forward to returning in warmer weather to spend more time along the beach. $4.00 entry fee per car...rest rooms available at the Park entrance.

This preserve is, perhaps, best fondly known for visitors hand-feeding wild birds (which you are not supposed to do). Beyond the illicit bird-feeding, the refuge has lovely, well-maintained trails, one of which leads down to a beach, where (season permitting) a stroll along the shore is quite scenic. There are bathrooms located at the refuge.

Morton is one of my favorite places to go when I am in the area. I love to feed the chickadees along the beautiful wooded paths. (Bring traditional black sunflower seeds, it's their favorite!) There are walking trails, benches, beach, you can literally spend the whole day. Yuu need to pay $4 to park all day. Parking is on the... More

I stopped here for the 1st time over the weekend. It was such a peaceful walk. The chipmunks and birds seem so friendly. We also saw deer. We walked to the beach. It is definitely worth coming and checking out. It's $4 to park seems like it is an honor based system. There are bathrooms onsite.

My 2 grown teenage children and I walked the beach trail with family members we were visiting which took about 10 minutes. We walked back to the parking lot on the nature trail which took an additional 20 minutes. It was in the late afternoon. We saw magnificent wildlife which included deer, turkeys, chipmunks, rabbits, swans and many different birds.... More

I have been here many times. I have gone with couples for a nice date. I've also gone with children. This place is great. Beautiful. It makes a great day in the outdoors. Make sure to bring birdseed, you will need it and they do not sell any. Also it's a good idea to pack some water and snacks or... More
