WARNING TICKS TICK TICK... we pulled over a dozen off our dog and a few off us as well....Secluded walking trail. Park says no dogs but we took ours and didn’t see anyone the whole time. Trail is not maintained well but it was still a good walk if you use tick spray and stay on the paths

Nice quiet trail lots of wildlife, raccoons and deer. Runs from sunken meadow (not dog friendly) RT25a. So if you bring a dog come from 25a or take the chance

First time hiking here, this is perfect for beginners. I would say this is a dog friendly trail as we hiked with our 2 years old corgi. Scenic view, we even saw a deer!

Pretty nice, but narrow path and gives you a bit of the elevation change that most trails on LI lack. Saw a dead deer carcass rotted out towards the entry on Fort Solonga rd, not far from a defunct utility shed. Part of the suggested route takes you off-trail through thorn bushes, and I wish I hadn’t tried to follow it. Had to carry my dog so he wouldn’t get hurt, but I took some thorns myself. Also, signs everywhere in the park say no pets, but All Trails list the trail as leashed dogs allowed. Honestly, the trail is so isolated you could easily bring your pup and never see anyone.

This trail was okay, but a little hard to find, and the information stating dogs allowed is not accurate. I don’t believe that rule is enforced though, since we arrived and both police and security cars drove by us and didn’t say anything. I still wouldn’t recommend bringing pups though, as the trail is heavy with thorn bushes on both sides in some places, and a lot of the sticks fall into the trail, so I’d be worried about paws. We turned back and didn’t finish for this reason, but for humans-only this is a fun hike, from what I did see.

Blowdown

A good trail to do in the rain, while wearing proper gear. The trail weaves it's way back and to, plenty of signs of wildlife. As you make your way through the trails they're awesome spots where there are blowdowns and some overgrown brush. Doing this trail in late October there are no bugs at all. Today's weather was 58 degrees and drizzle. October 29th 2019 time now 14:40

This trail is definitely overgrown in spots and extremely buggy at 730pm in mid July. Only did a quarter of the trail from the secluded entry to the woods. Bugs were brutal although they didn't seem to bug my brave Chi-weenie. Still a decent trail if it wasn't so buggy and was better marked. At times I felt like I was in "The Shire." Probably will go back doused in bug repellent(Off) and with my clippers to make it a little more passable for future hikers.

Not anywhere near the trail on AllTrails.com. That trail would have you in water and marsh. Made our way around. Plenty of wildlife but the insects are brutal. Bring spray and treat before hike. Plenty of ticks. Be warned !!!!! I will try this trail again in colder months. Trail is marked, but not if coming in from field 2. We noticed only on return trip (25A) of the orange markings.

First to Review

Lightly used trail that meanders through the woods along the tidal sunken meadow creek. Great spot to see deer and an abundance of ducks and herons. Starts in the park opposite the field two parking lot, on the road to the golf course. Ends along 25a.
