Muttontown Preserve – 550 acres of Nature on LI!

I know! Unheard of!

We even had to pack snacks & water since it is unusual to be more than 100 m. from a deli.

My SS-teacher/husband started us off with a lecture about the ruins of an estate built by a king from somewhere (we were not great students). That king (from Europe?) took off with all of the peoples’ money and built a huge estate, now in ruins. He was punished by vandals, ah Karma.

As we hiked out to the ruins, we saw bunnies, flowers, and lots and lots of mud. We even found a raccoon footprint!

The ruins were pretty cool. Still under fire from vandals, but enough intact to spook us a little.

Visit a review for better descriptions and directions at the NY Times.
