Love the view and the easy to walk around

Kinda hard to navigate I kept ending up on the road running path

Beautiful and scenic easy trail. A hidden gem in the area.

Awesome place!

this trail is like walking on a 15 foot wide lawn. the dog and I covered over 5 miles. no inclines. trail conditions are ice, snow and mud with some dry areas. very peaceful walk. nice little rest area with a bench where someone had a little fire going. enjoyed the walk and got to see a piece of history. nice day, good exercise!

Lucky for me, I live 1/3 of a mile from an access point. I can take the trail from my house to Woodbury and back for a 24 mile ride with only a few road crossings and lots of shaded trail. Best done on a weekday.

Very pretty and easy to follow trail. Great for walking, snowshoeing, dog walking. I don't love it for running because the footpath is extremely narrow in some places and difficult to run. if you do run it, I recommend trail shoes even though the trail is flat and not very rugged, just because you find yourself wanting to run in the grass alongside the footpath.

The map on the app isn't accurate. There is alot of small side trails that branch off the bigger ones. It is small enough though that you wont get lost.

Beautiful forest trail. There was 12-18 inches of snow on the trail the day we did it, so really slow going. Covered in snow, it was hard in some places to figure out where the trail was. We've done this trail in the summer as well and the trail is easy to find when it's not covered in snow. Note that the trail is marked, both at the trailhead and on the trail markers, as the Beehunter trail. The full loop is also about 6.5 miles rather than 5.3.

this trail is a breeze to walk. according to my GPS, we covered 5.2 Mi today. if it were summer time it would be like walking on a 10 to 15 foot wide lawn. spotted a nice little rest spot where someone had a little fire going. very peaceful setting. didn't notice any inclines and it seemed to go on in either direction. nice beautiful day to take a walk with the dog and see a piece of history.

Simply for the historic value... 25 yrs ago during a heat wave in the beginning of April. Two days later the heaviest snow storm of the year...

This trail is a joke not well marked

My dog loves it

It was a beautiful day on this historic trail. It was so warm that I actually got sunburned.

One of few uninterrupted trail runs within several miles radius of Garden City/Hempstead. In addition to the main loop, which is just under 3 miles, can add a 2 mile loop on the north side of the Southern State and almost one more mile to the south toward Lakeview - all totaled can get 6.5-7.0 miles of non-repeating trails.

Nice trail along the creek walking upstream towards the falls. Beautiful trail can be rough to walk during the winter. Very nice park to enjoy an afternoon.

very nice trail. it is well maintained for miles. It is a easy walk, family and dog friendly.

Nice hike to the top of Skytop Mountain. The ascent is steady, but moderate, and it provides great views of Mohonk Lake and Mohonk Mountain House from the beginning. There are several gazebos on the way up, which provide nice resting spots to catch your breath and enjoy the view. At the top, there is a stone tower that provides excellent views of the surrounding countryside, including the Walkill River Valley and the Catskills. There are several cliffs very near the trail, so I would not recommend this trail to people with a fear of heights.

Beautiful views. On one side, it’s amazing, calm, beach side walk, there’s walking trail as well across beach side, and on other side is hiking trail. Trail covers view of sunken meadow tidal marsh. Photos uploaded.

It’s a great little trail for the city people hehe. It is nice and I enjoyed it.

Flat easy scenic walk

As advertised, very easy, but an unbelievably scenic stroll. Some dirt trials so wear boots if raining

Just a warning, if you aren’t staying at the hotel, the hike is a little longer. They have you starting at the entrance to the preserve. But it’s worth it for the scenery and awesome views.
