The first time we pulled in the parking lot here I almost jumped out of my skin when I saw all. that. grass. The rolling hill and big field are my favorite, as well as looking out on Puppy Cove down at the bottom of the hill. I love playing ball in the field, as well as taking a walk on the trails! Every time we’re here I meet new pups! This place is perfect for my long leash, I get to spend lots of time running and sniffing around!
Coindre Hall is near and dear to me (Megan) because I have a passion for all things ‘Gold Coast’ and it’s here in my hometown of Huntington. It’s rare to come here and not see dogs, but every dog (and owner!) we’ve encountered so far has been super friendly. The trails here aren’t super long, probably about a mile when you add them all up together, but the walk down to the boat house and the view of the harbor is beautiful, and the field & hill are wonderful for getting energy out.
