The Arboretum has something for just about everyone. There are greenhouses with tropical plants, outside gardens, a large rolling estate to amble around. There are guided tours of the mansion. And of course, there is a wooded area with many trails to explore. Maps available at entrance (maybe not during winter season) are pretty good.

Really beautiful and fun just to walk around, surprisingly less mosquitoes than I expected!

Very buggy. Wear and bring bug spray. Other than that absolutely beautiful.

Overgrown and poorly kept. My wife and I walked the trails this past weekend. We were saddened to see that the preserve had not been kept up. Strangle vines and huge wild rose bushes are smothering the legitimate flora. Something needs to be done, as soon, before the whole Preserve is destroyed.

Great trails. No dogs and no bikes (too muddy...). Wildlife and interesting fauna abound! Also note, the preserve is closed on Fridays for trail work. The tulip trees here are some of the tallest in the world

Beautiful park/arboretum. Fee to park but worth it. Lovely grounds and gardens. Manor house- Coe Hall has tours. Definitely recommend coming here at least once! Hurrincane Sandy did a lot of damage to most parks on LI, so I imagine the arboretum lost some big old trees.

Many trails. Miles of them. Trails can go from paved & manicured to open fields & thick woods. Some of the most diverse vegetation you'll find anywhere. A bird sanctuary. Beautiful greenhouses with many specimens of tropical vegetation. A mansion with guided tours. You can spend a whole day there.

Hiking there for over fifty years. A rainforest on Long Island. Beautiful place to be. Woods, streams & ponds. Wildlife. Huge Great Blue Herons & Egrets. Snapping Turtles. Swans. Can be very muddy. Aside from the loop there's an out & back for another mile with an optional return trail recently added. Old growth woods. Well maintained. Stay on the trail since it's surrounded by private property. It has been terribly beaten from the storms & hurricanes over the past 10 - 20 years. A nice bird watching platform had been completely destroyed & some of the geography has changed. The trails have been restored. Aside from the trails, the scenic backroad trip getting there is also quite enjoyable. You can take the causeway & see the other side of the lake you saw from the trail & the Mill Neck Creek which ends up in the Long Island Sound via Bayville Creek & Oyster Bay Harbor.
