Secret Forest

This little know grove of redwoods are located in a quiet corner of East Sea Neck off Cedar Towd Road just north of the Mid-Hampton Peaks area. The state DEC does not encourage people to frequent the area as it is also home to the giant tiger salamander.  These large salamanders many over eight feet long are a rare and endangered species, larger than Komodo dragons, they can also be dangerous to people.

  1. I caught one of those salamanders once. It was a baby and we had no idea how big it would get until it was too late. It's in the Bronx Zoo now. At least I hope it still is.
