The first time I went here they had just closed off the street road on one side..the one that you can drive down to a parking lot and trails. On the news they said there was chemical dumping in this park so I can only assume that's the reason many of these trails are closed off. We went back a few months later and tried the other side with the dog park. We walked into the woods and to the left and found the trail was closed off here too.
I do plan on giving this place another chance once the trails are opened (and hopefully cleaned of any chemicals).

Great hike. Dog on a leash, great open areas and shaded trails. Nice people at the dog run. Easy parking.

RE: Trail Running
Positives... Very challenging single track, lots of elevation change.
Negatives... Their budget to maintain their park is GONE, I mean horrible disrepair beyond the dog park/main area. East side the trails are the worst marked I have ever seen, blazes faded or missing, signs falling apart, trails overgrown in areas. They have perma-fenced off many trails now for who knows why, they had the white trail blocked with temp fences. And the west side is not marked at all, good if you want to get lost I suppose.
Just avoid this place for trail running like the plague, it is not worth the aggravation.

Great trails for hiking with your dog, some uphill and downhills are easy/moderate. Been here multiple times never came across horseback riders tho have seen fresh scats. Lots of blue jays, robins, and other birds I'm sure. Some of the trails are in disrepair and hidden on the Northwest corner of the park where I believe it crosses over to Boy Scout area, but still manageable. They were clearing some trees along the outside edge near the free way near the Sweet Hollow Rd entrance. The park entrance with the dog run area on Sweet Hollow I was also told is contaminated with chemical from a poorly executed treatment, so I'd advise NOT to take your pet there.

I think the only trail on LI that features some long range views. Not so impressive, but still.

In all fairness we went hiking on one of the first warmer days we've had in a long time so everything was a mushy melted mess! We still had fun in spite of the mud! :)
