You don’t need a mountain bike for this trip. Easy and nice leisurely ride. Good for a quick trip and if you have family.

Nice place, good environment for family with kids and dogs. Easy to walk. Good for picnic and barbecue. Unfortunately, most of the restroom doors are unable to close and lock.

Nice and quiet. Disagree about review about mean neighborhood. It was really nice, people were super nice on the way. Almost no traffic noise. Really peaceful walk.

I used to love it here and been coming for 20 years. But now all the people there are very stuck up and very unwelcoming. From the moment you park your car, they are watching you and they don't want you there. I've came back to my car and found someone drew a line on the road around my car with chalk with the time that I had parked there. Very creepy. The moment sunset begins, they will ticket you $150 if you didn't make it out the park in time, even if you are on the way out. The people who live near this park are horrible people who don't want others to enjoy "their park". They stand outside their house on the street and stare at you and your car until you remove yourself and your vehicle from their sight. My car was across the street and 5 houses down from one guy that was standing out his house watching. Why does this concern him? Another person called public safety to make sure we left within the 2 hour timeframe that was allowed, which we did and would have done without their hovering. Its unfortunate since I lived in this town for years and like to visit the park I sort of grew up in. To be treated like a criminal for taking a walk.. its just outrageous.

calm, family friendly location with many picnic areas and a nice lake. Paddle boats and a few kayaks are available for rent seasonally. Dogs permitted on leash on trails. Clean and groomed trails. A very easy stroll, less crowded in the morning hours. Good for biking as well!

Beautiful trail so many things to do and long distance to walk, only downside is it being next to the southern state parkway

I took a drive from Brooklyn, spend 2 hours in traffic while it was pouring rain hoping that it clears up and that the trail is worth it.

Well it was worth it, its nice scenery and trails are well maintained. After doing 2 loops I noticed a side trail and decided to get on it. It was a blast. I did it on a Saturday and it was not packed at all. The parking lot fee is $8 but you can park at residential streets and use one of many entrances.

I shot a short GoPro video. where you can see the trails https://youtu.be/PLBh84EYNSk

Had a great walk around the lake. Good traffic of runners, bike riders, walkers with dogs. Beautiful fall foliage around the lake. Pretty easy trail, very entertaining trail with beautiful swans in lake.

Good trail. Dogs allowed. Fee to park in Belmont Lake State park (free if you have NY state park pass for $65/year) . Boat rentals n lake are fun. Picnic areas, playground and restrooms. This place is packed on the weekends. You can actually ride a nice long trail to Babylon village from the lake. (or park for free by taking Deer Park Ave South from Sunrise Hwy and turn right on Park Ave. Park at the tennis courts.) The trail is very pretty, winding over streams and little bridges. You can walk the trail for a few miles through the woods, or just walk around the lake if you park in Belmont. If you park at the tennis courts in Babylon, you can take a short 20 minute walk up to Southards pond and then loop back to the parking lot. Lots of birds and swans here. The other option is biking the whole trail which I have done, either from Belmont lake down to the tennis courts on Park Ave, and back, or vice versa. I started at the tennis courts and rode up to Belmont Lake. The trail can be busy in the summer, and sometimes there are horses on the trail. Keep your dog leashed. Nice during the Fall- great fall foliage here.

This is a very easy flat trail that follows along the outside of the park, views during spring and fall are great with blooms and change in foliage, dog friendly park too.

Belmont Lake State Park is in North Babylon exit 37 off the Southern State Parkway. Not in Massapequa.
