Lovely trail. It’s not paved and very rocky but still a comfortable, beautiful walk.

love this trail with my young kids. the highlight point is the picnic table on the water. Went in the fall and no bugs or other issues. can easily miss the trail entrance. you start off on the bridal path and if you hit the road you've gone too far. Excellent writeup of this trail in the book 50 day hikes around New York City.

Very easy but calming and relaxing trail. Didnt feel like 1.8 miles at all. Nice views of the bay!

My 11-year-old-son and I enjoyed our walk along the Hunter Island Trail. The path was easy, clear and well maintained. Orchard Beach was very crowded, but the trail was quiet and calming. Beautiful views along the water. We almost forgot we were still in the Bronx! We will definitely return for another walk during the Fall months, if not sooner.

I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS TRAIL IN THE SUMMER MONTH'S,MOSQUITO INFESTED,SWARM'S OF THEM,I WAS GETTING BIT EVERY SECOND,TERRIBLE!!!WINTER,FALL,& SPRING IS THE BEST.

HIKED IT PLENTY OF TIMES,BEAUTIFUL HIKE,NATURE HIKE,EASY,RESEMBLES NEW ENGLAND SHORE LINE.

Impossible to find beginning of trail i.e. south end of red line. The walkways are north of the parkway. We never found any way to get across to the south side, even way up at the parking lot.

Very overgrown but nice marsh and water views with access to the mansion gardens

Unkept trail with no real destination. All of Pelham Bay Park is a little disappointing for hikers.

Great hike in the NYC backyard. Not sure I'd recommend it for a Summer weekend hike, but if you are looking for a great Spring or Fall hike this is a must. The backend of the hike is along the water and at low tide you have a few "interesting" options to get yourself in some fun trouble.

Nice loops in the bushes near the bbq area.

Nice little walk close to the city. Very easy with some pretty views of the water.
