|Trail Conference News: We have published revised 4th edition of Hiking Long Island book.|
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.
An excellent reference available for purchase on this website is Lee McAllster's book, Hiking Long Island.
Parks with trails include:
- Bethpage State Park
- Connetquot River State Park Preserve
- Sunken Meadow State Park (Governor Alfred E. Smith/Sunken Meadow State Park)
