es muy bueno lo puedo recomendar es fácil acceso y calidad de area

Beautiful views and loved the hike, but BEWARE taking your dog! Despite staying in the middle of the trail, all 3 of ours were literally covered, no joke, in thousands of "seed ticks" (tick larvae) from paw to chest. We had never heard of this before and it's absolutely disgusting. Will go again, but not taking the dogs unless it's the dead of winter.

Looked like a great hike but want able to go for a mile in because of mosquitoes. These bugs were everywhere and made it uncomfortable. They were biting and swarming around us. Also, beware of ticks.

I would have given in 5 stars,but I found that the trail markers while on the beach were nonexistent,and so I ended up on a private road leading to someone's home,and had to backtrack. Walking the beach was strenuous,and so a 5.3 mile hike turned into more of a 6.5 mile hike. Don't get me wrong,all in all it was a decent hike and the views of the LI Sound were beautiful. It was very peaceful being I was the only one on the trail. Definitely would like to come back in the summer so I can take a swim when I get hot.

Good bike trail with several very scenic segments. Easy to find parking at Hither Hills Overlook from where the trail will turn left just few meters before crossing the gravel/dirt road. If you're riding the bike, do not take the road.

Trail is nice and wide. There are nice views of the bay from the bluffs. The beach walk feels long as there’s not much to see. The lighthouse is interesting but there is no info about it there. Then you have to walk through the park on a road until you reach your car. Meh. It’s good to get your steps in if you have time to kill.

Lovely hiking trail. Well maintained yet secluded 5.3 mile loop. Be sure to have your dog on a leash especially when you reach mile 1.0; the bluffs come up abruptly and your dog (and eager trail runner) can easily go over the edge en route to a 50 foot plunge to the beach. Sunny and very cool, so ticks weren't an issue. But lots of deer tracks along the trail are a good indicator that it is an issue in warmer seasons. Definitely going back for another go.

Part woods, part sand. Easy hike with lots of white tail deer. Peaceful this time of year.

Great run. Well marked with moderately challenging running trails.

very pretty on a beautiful day. 70 degrees 10/30. Not challenging but rewarding on the end. The signage is not good and some of the hike is on asphalt roads.

Well marked and maintained trail while in the forest. Once you get to the beach you have multiple out/back options to get to the lighthouse. Our hike was about 5.5 miles but walking a good portion on the sand made it a bit more strenuous than the total distance would imply.

PS - definitely do a tick check post hike as everyone in our group found at least one during our inspections.

Find laurel canyon when the mountain laurels bloom. 3 miles of heaven . Great views of the sound.

love it; woods, bluffs, beaches and an old lighthouse

did some off roading. good fun.

The paths are clearly marked and well maintained. The part of the path that goes through the woods has an elevation that allows for a great view of the Long Island sound. Great trail for dogs. In season, bathrooms and water. Great sunset views.

A great fat tire bike ride to lighthouse you can also go a bit more east along the water (trail in woods or riding beach) than the map indicates.

Nice ride with scenery all the way. It was a beautiful fall day and just right for a long bike ride.

Certainly the most scenic trail on the island. Jump the train tracks to hit the coastal trails and have a dip in the sound!!!! Only issue is lots of thorns so bring lots of tubes just in case you wind up walking the last mile like me lol

This is a nice trail to ride in peace. Not difficult but its peaceful. Some climbs. Out an back is easiest. Couldn't risk doing a loop as its easy to get lost once you pass Grace estate. Still a nice 10 mile ride.

Great ride. Can mix it up and get a good 15-18 mike loop. Some good up hills and down hills. Ride it all the time. Some down hills are very soft. Be careful, can run into a tree if not careful. Park in rte 114.
