Trail View is a 400-acre, 7.4-mile linear park that serves as a link along the Nassau/Suffolk Greenbelt Trail that extends from Cold Spring Harbor State Park on the north shore of Suffolk County to Bethpage State Park, and eventually to the south shore of Nassau County. New York State obtained the land in the 1960s intending to use it as a parkway connecting Caumsett State Historic Park to Bethpage State Park. In the summer of 2002, the property was dedicated as a state park, offering a variety of recreational opportunities including trails for hiking and bicycling on its hilly terrain and open fields. Trail View encompasses a variety of habitats and undeveloped natural resources such as hardwood forests, marshes and succession fields with elevations ranging from 60 to 300 feet above sea level. The park is a favorite spot for birdwatchers year-round, most especially--because it lies on the Atlantic flyway--during the spring and fall bird migrations.On a limited basis, visitors can ride horseback or cross-county ski.

walked the first half from Jericho tpike it is a bit shabby. lots of garbage. would make a nice eagle scout project to clean it up.

Walked this trail 2 days ago. It was absolutely lovely but the trail was confusing in a number of spots. The trail could definitely have been marked clearer but overall it was really pretty and relaxing. We would recommend this hike; make sure to leave yourselves 2.5 hours to complete if you're hiking.

Followed white and yellow trails, both of which were pretty well marked--which may change as foliage fills in. Yellow path easy, with gently undulating terrain. In the woods themselves, there were areas that were very steep. Patches of ice in low lying areas, some areas were becoming muddy as the temperature was warming above freezing. Looking forward to returning in the spring (and with a map)!

Awesome trails in Long Island from moderate to hard

This trail was a wonderful surprise as I was visiting family and a nice way to find time for myself. I hike a lot in Wisconsin so I think the moderate rating is correct. The trail is beautiful, nice ups and downs, and perfect length at 7.1 miles. My only gripe is that without the app I would have been in big trouble. The trails intersect and are not well marked, the app was the only way to know which way to go and not get lost.

Great trails with many different paths to keep it interesting. The black trails were too difficult for my son and I but the blue and green trails were awesome. We rode approx 9 miles in 4 hours. Fantastic Sunday!
