I don’t even know if we found the right trail, there are no signs or markings anywhere. We parked by the Holocaust Center, a trash-filled lot full of broken glass. We found a couple overgrown trails with graffiti-covered ruins and trash all around. We turned around and got out of there. Not recommended!

I am a Glen Cove resident, and I must say the trails in those woods are terrible over grown and in need of a little TLC. Come on Glen Cove clean up your act.

Visited on Friday, trail not well marked, overgrown bushes, buggy, not able to do the loop because of it. Walked paved road to beach and walked along beach... that was nice!

The app bugged out cause I had no service but we did the loop within 95 minutes. We walked at a slow pace and taking time to enjoy the beautiful woods, beach, and wildlife. brought Gemma (dog) and she loved it and even made me doggy friends too

Beautiful trail. One of my top selections in the area. Mostly in the woods and then when you reach the beach it’s a breathtaking moment. The trail is sometimes a little hard to find but there is more than one option and as long as you’re walking in the right direction you are good. It is part of the magic as well - the trail is narrow at times and you do get to feel like an adventurous explorer. GPS and full battery may be needed on your first visit.

Tried to find the path but it was not marked at all. Creepy grounds with graffiti and garbage everywhere.

This place is absolutely beautiful. I was so happy to hear about this place by a friend and will be going often with my pup!

This preserve is a hidden gem of Glen Cove. The preserve has an array of habitats including a tulip tree forest, small streams, a small pond, marshlands, and the Long Island Sound. Some trails are wide and others can be narrow and slightly overgrown in the summer. There are many smaller trails that branch from the main trail. Also, there is a nice jetty on the beach. Finally, the preserve has rich historical background, once belonging to the oil magnate Charles Pratt and his family. After hiking, check you and your dog for ticks.
