Nice easy trail. We just did the green trail today and will do the blue trail next time. Nature Conservancy does a nice job of keeping up the trail and the staff are informative.

Nice! Stay on trails to avoid infestation of ticks!

Ive done the 9 mile loop a few times...it's closer to 10 depending on how you walk it. What stands out each time is the birding, passing deer, and the beach. The center of the park is always my favorite spot...swallows and blue birds can be seen flying / zig zaging in the air around these really nice fields. There are good water views. Watch for ticks as I do see them each visit during warmer months. Down the road is the Shelter Island Brewery​ which is a relaxing place to stop after hiking/walking for a few hours :)

Nice and relaxing trail. You can do up to 5 different trails with Blue bring the longest at 10 miles. We elected to stay on the green trail of up to 6 miles. Only disappointment? Didn't see much wildlife except for chipmunks and some birds. But very easy trail to walk

A great spot. Friendly staff, magnificent water views with some hills and wetland bridges. Please use caution for ticks in summer.
