Great variety of birds and beautiful views of skyline and Jamaica Bay. Be sure to check out the visitor's center. Binoculars are available upon request. Bug spray recommend for summer months.

Love seeing the local sea birds and the views of the city skyline from such a serene location.

Wonderful trail for water birds. Many herons and sandpipers to be found. Don't visit in the summer. Temperatures get extremely hot.

Trail is not a loop
Loop trail breached by superstorm sandy
It is necessary to go partway round the trail, backtrack and then go the other way
