Mohegan Bluffs Review
The 200-foot cliffs along Mohegan Trail, the island's southernmost road, are named for an Indian battle in which the local Manisses defeated an attacking band of Mohegans. From Payne Overlook, west of the Southeast Lighthouse, you can see to Montauk Point on Long Island. An intimidating set of stairs leads down almost to the bottom; erosion means there's then a short but treacherous rocky scramble before you reach the beach. It is pebbly at the base of the stairs but sandy in the cove to the west, with lively surf that attracts surfers. Wear walking shoes and don't attempt the descent unless you're in reasonably good shape.
