"With 627 acres of parkland for you and your dog to enjoy, a hike at Blydenburgh County Park offers a casual day out in eastern Suffolk County all the year through. Located at the headwaters of the Nissequogue River, richly forested hills and a gorgeous freshwater pond beckon to any level of hiker and dogs of any age and ability. This is an easy hike over relatively flat terrain with opportunities to visit fresh water throughout. Horses share the trail at this park as well, so be mindful of our larger four-legged friends while exploring the terrain." Read more

Good easy 6 mile hike, give yourself 2 hours, 2 1/2 if you're stoping for photos. Some of the trail is muddy but it's maintained very well with little foot bridges. Most of the trail has great views of the lake.

Another nice place to hike on Long Island. Fishing is good too. It was a very hot August day last time out. About six miles around Stump Pond. Interesting history, with farm house and old mill too see. North end of park has historical features. House is home to Long Island Greenbelt. The 34 mile long Greenbelt trail goes through the park. There is much wildlife to be seen. I poked my head out at a clear shoreline area and an awesome blue heron took flight. Very cool.

This place looked so nice I plan on going back this weekend. I also went last summer and found a very small ring-necked snake under some leaves on the trail.. almost stepped on the poor thing.

Hiked in from the south side by the county buidings. The foot bridge is really something, and allows you a dry view of the marsh area. We found the trails clean and fairly well marked. As suggested we stayed on the smaller trail which meandered along the water. We took about three hours to walk about six miles or so. The bathrooms were still locked.
