This is mainly a mountain biking trail, I have seen a few reviews from hikers who are unaware. There are hiking trails that pass through, they are Blue and White blazes but they are shared use and you need to be aware that you can have bicycles coming through at speed. If you are a trail runner or a hiker who listens to music, only wear one ear bud. That being said it’s a great trail system for Long Island that was formed on the edge of a glacier so it’s sandy and rocky with some decent climbs. The maintained trails are very well marked.

The markings for this trail were very poor in several spots that it was quite easy to get off trail, if not for having the app I am not sure how long it would take us to find our way out Otherwise it was a great hike, with remarkable inclines for Long Island. If you go on a very wet day I would expect some spots to get quite slippery, we did negotiate some muddy spots, but nothing too challenging. This trail is shared with bikes, but we went on Father’s Day and it was not crowded at all, but you need to be mindful when hiking that you share the trail with bikers that can be approaching quite fast. I would consider doing this trail again but would really appreciate if the trail blazes could be updated.

Excellent mountain bike trails, intermediate to experienced

I have hiked high hill many times. first time on west hill.im just upset to see all the meticulously maintained lean to and camp sites that are not "open" to the public. The trail was decent for long island. a bit noisy from the northern state.

Great, well-kept trails with lots of options for any level hiker or biker. Met very few people on the way but the bikers were all friendly and didn’t bother me. Will definitely be coming back to try some other trails here!

Love this place

Rules be damned! I took my 20 lb on a leash on a late afternoon Saturday hike. Had to avoid a few bike riders but no one outwardly complained about a dog on the trail. However, the trails are very narrow in many places so you have to be on the ball to avoid getting run over by cyclers. There weren't too many though considering it was Saturday. We only did 2.85 miles because it was easy to get lost. There are a lot of other trails crisscrossing the main trail so it's easy to get off the beaten path even when using GPS. Overall it's a fine trail and I will definitely be back to do the full 4.3+ miles.

Nice Trail, mostly mountain bikers who may have been pissed off that we were walking through the trails.

The trails are not all well marked and you have to be careful of bike riders, but nice trail overall. Not super challenging terrain for hiking.

Loved it. 4 stars for some forks in trails not being marked. Followed the most difficult trail markers. Had some technical spots but overall great spot. Will be riding again soon.

Great hike! The trails coincide with the Nassau/Suffolk greenbelt trail. Plenty of hills and scenic views. I was surprised of the many people hiking and biking these trails.

This was a great hike for me and my dog. The trails are better suited for biking however we enjoyed them a lot. Definitely worth going back to again!

It was a good trail. Great trail if you have a bike. Lots of bugs at points, bring repellent!

Really more of a nature walk than a hike. If you are used to more challenging hikes in the Hudson Valley, this will be an easy trail. Well marked, small slopes, no true elevation. I took the "double black diamond" trails as often as possible and stuck to the "harder" trails. Mostly through woods, so make sure to bring a good bug spray and use it liberally! Woods also keeps temps a bit warmer than expected, close and humid. Overall, a fun 3hr walk.
