Summary:
I read a review somewhere that said you could ride singletrack all day. It was more like you could spend all day looking for singletrack. I only found one short singletrack after searching many dead ends. However the breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound and even the twisting uphills and seaside roads to get there (by car) almost made the trip worthwhile.

Recommended Route:
Get a map and do your best to find singletrack, otherwise it's all bridle paths, fire roads, and paved roads.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Rocky Point is a MUST. It's a lttle further east but well worth the trip. Also Calverton and,all the way out east, Hither Woods.

Summary:
i ride there all the time. this park can be easy or extremely challenging. it all depends on you. there is a 3 mile paved circular track leading up to the manor house which i always make my 1st stop. it takes a mere 1.7 miles from the parking lot. i don't really have to rest that early, but once you see it for yourself, you'll understand why i need to go there. the manor house sits atop a steep hill overlooking a tree-lined lake. on the other side of the lake is the long island sound, which is often filled with sailboats. it's a wonderous site. you've got to see you!!! i've done all the tour-guiding i'm going to do. the rest is up to you. go off and explore, you can't get lost. just get your map, orient yourself & get going. one last thing: CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELVES. DO NOT LITTER.
have a good time. buy the empire pass for $49/yr.

Recommended Route:
woodbury road in huntington turns into west neck road as you travel north over main street (rte 25a). take west neck to the park. but beware! the local boys in blue in lloyd neck don't like speeders, so don't do it. you've been warned.

Summary:
I went there in September. I'd say it has a little bit for everyone. It has wide easy dirt roads, paved roads and single tracks. There are offshoots all over once you get into the woods and away from the stables and plantation area. Working your way to the scuba diving off spot is worth it, once of the most spectacular views I've seen this close to the city. Overall a real pretty place. If your looking to cruise and get a workout this is the place. Aside from a few short steep technical single tracks I didn't see much for the experienced off-roader.

Recommended Route:
Whatever you want to get the north shore. Signs aren't too good. Parking was $5 I think

Haven't found them yet, but i just started to look

Reviewed by: Bob , from Port

Summary:
There were no reviews for this park, so I went there once and figured it was worth mentioning. It is a haul to get to the north shore, but it was a fun day and a new place to ride if you are tired of the Stillwell Loop in Syosset. Beware that you do share some of the trails with horses, so there are some technical jumps over their droppings. More single track near the north end as well.

Recommended Route:
Get a free map at the park and make a loop around the 1500 acre park. Only went once, but would go again because it is in a beautiful setting. Something for everyone and I remember riding along cliffs adjacent to the water at the north end of the park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Stillwell of course and I love Hither Hills in Montauk
