Argueably the most diverse of the trails in the Lone Star Lakes. Veiws include lakes, swamp, woods and more. South from the gatehouse for 1.5 miles and return by a different route.
I think im going to take my daughter out there this weekend.
In response to Megan: no, the trail has not 'vanished' - the entrance just got relocated: it's not north of Kings Hwy anymore but south. - there's a big sign where Crittenden Rd leads into Kings Hwy.
Parking is not so easy anymore ... :-(
We just tried to find this trail today, and the address given by Suffolk Parks & Rec is now a wastewater plant (102 Bob House Pkwy) with construction site parking in front of it, and no trail access or parking. Guess this trail is gone? No park that we could find. Very disappointing.
Another nice hike in Lone Star Lakes. I agree that there is more variety on this hike than the other two here.
This is a very easy 3 mile trail. Lots to see. Areas like "Lunker Landing" and "Blue Gill Hills" make me think it is more for fishermen than hikers but it is a joint use park.
