My favorite of all the Pine Bush trails. Hills and stairs get your heart pumping, the woods and streams supply nice scenery.

Love the soft underfoot. Great for a smooth trail run. Not much jumping to and for, but some good log stairs.

This is an out and back trail, well marked, flat with some gentle hills. Took me about 2 hrs round trip. Trail was in good condition. Muddy in some spots, but you can easily get around it.

First to Review

The first part of the hike is the typical barren sand dune that the Pine Bush Preserve Commission and been transforming the Pine Bush into. After crossing E Old State Road the trail transitions into the Pine Bush as it was 5 years ago: wooded with lots of shade. The the first part of the forest is composed of poplar and locust trees that are tall and straight. This provides a dome-like visual effect that is pretty cool. The trail is wide enough to allow people to ride a horse of which I saw two today.
