Long Island Trails

Though it lacks high peaks and unbroken wilderness, Long Island nevertheless offers hikers and walkers a surprising number of trails, including several that stretch 20 or 30 miles and connect local and state parks, following shore lines of rivers, ocean,or Long Island Sound. Most of these long distance trails have been built and are maintained by the Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference, a member club of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference.
