same trail as Stomp Pond Loop, just that this one brings you through the parking lot that charges $15. it's definitely an easy hike completed with my dog in a little less than 3 hours with stops at the stream. it can get a little muddy but the most of the trail is flat. if you have a few hours and want to relax definitely recommend it.

Nice trails for all ages. Map is well marked and trails are too. Walked the blue trail. Great for camping. Has boat rental (rowboats). Bring your bug spray. Worth the walk, run biking anything.

Better trail maps would have made not getting lost a little easier. However it was a nice day and we all had a good time.

Relaxing hike.trails were clearly marked. saw a few birds, unfortunately the pond was still frozen so that limited the amount of ducks to see. definitely will go back .

I really enjoyed this trail today. In my opinion if you want to go all the way around the lake the blazes are easier to follow if you go clockwise. That is the direction I went today and had no problems at all. The last time here I went counter-clockwise and had a bit of trouble

I’ve done Blydenburgh probably about 2-3 Times. It’s a light hike. Relatively easy. Very nice in the summer months. But great all year round.

I was pleasantly surprised how beautiful the park is. Especially at this time of the year when the leaves are changing color. As I walked around the lake I took many pictures of the water and the reflection of the trees on it. The trail is an easy course, that is well marked by blue and white blaze. It was very quiet on the trail because it was a weekday. There is an old pink house on the grounds, and what seems to a building that reminds me of a grist mill. I would have given 5 stars, but I was disappointed in the fact that I found people on the trail with unleashed dogs, and also people leaving bags of dog feces along the trail. Why can’t they just take it out with them and dispose of it properly.

Hiked up to the thinnest part of the lake. Great walk, not too challenging. Lots of dogs off leash for some reason.

Lots of different elements to this trail. Beaches, hills, lakes, streams and a mini waterfall keeps it interesting for sure! Make sure you bring bug spray and toilet paper because this is a long trail.

One of Long Islands best. Great scenic views and a ton of wildlife. Very noticeable of how well this park is kept. Spotless!!! A wooden walkway has been built over the marsh part. Big help. Treat for bugs before as the nats are a bit annoying.

This place is great! There are so many different trail options which gives the illusion that you're one of the only people in the park! You can rent row boats if you get tired of hiking

This was a great trail for a small group of people. It is particularly good for beginners. The views are beautiful, and it is easy to follow the blue trail - just follow the water! We will be trying many trails but will come back to this with friends and family that only want to hike for approximately 2.5 hours.

If you want to get out of the city/town and away from it all in a short drive this is the place to go!!! But I don't want to tell a lot of people either cause it's not over crowded and I'd prefer it stays that way. Haha!! Chances are you may get a little lost but that added to the fun. My country type dogs absolutely loved it there as well. Definitely will be a place I go again!!
