Spent an overcast, early Spring day here. Very easy, very beautiful. Abundance of wildlife. Friendliest people on the paths.

Short and sweet little trail. Fall colors were out around the little pond. A $4 fee is charged per vehicle.

Feeding the birds sunflower seeds is the sweetest way to enjoy this park’s trails. A few seeds in the outstretched palm of your hand and, if you remain still, a chickadee will alight onto your hand and nibble away. Kids love it!

Very easy, flat trail. If you want to feed the birds, they like the black seeds and it's better to go in the off season, it's less crowded, quieter, and you'll get more birds!

Absolutely loved this trail!! Visited family on LI and decided to take make 3 year old niece, who completed the entire loop. Had a joyous time introducing my niece to different species of birds and instilling in her my love of the outdoors.

Great for viewing AND feeding, from the palm of your hand, winter birds like sparrow, titmouse, chickadee. Cardinal and Blue Jay will come real close if you seed the ground near you and stay real still.

Great views!! Nice trails! Unfortunately, we couldn't find unsalted sunflower seeds to feed the birds as that is what is recommended so we watched everyone else feed them lol. Plenty of chipmunks, turtles, birds, swans and a ton of turkeys. Walk down to the beach and watch the ospreys.
