"Set on 6150 acres of protected land in Suffolk County, the Rocky Point Natural Resources Management Area offers an extensive network of trails for hikers and canines alike. Although relatively dry and warm in summer months, the park is a great location for a hike year-round, with the exception of hunting seasons. Once owned by the RCA Corporation, then sold to the county for one dollar, the concrete remains of former radio transmission towers can be seen throughout the park." Read more

Not a bad trail ride for some endurance conditioning. Basically its a XC trail. Not really any elevation change with some basic up and downhills. Mainly winding in and around trees.

I'm a amateur at mountain biking and this trail is worth it. Great for all levels of riding. However trails should be marked better. The bail out wasn't really a bail out. Got wicked last and had to call for back up! I will def do again. However I do not suggest this trail for hiking. You will get plowed over by bikes and not very scenic. I t is a more lets see ow fast we can go without hitting a tree!

What a great trail. It wasn't at all difficult, even the black diamonds and double black diamonds were pretty easy. With all the black diamonds and blue squares it was closer to 20 miles. The trail itself if beautiful and lots of fun. You need a permit, but I've never seen a ranger around to check on it.

Distance of trail was good. Trails were overgrown and not well marked. Our dog came back with tons of ticks.

Great trail all around. Alot of variation and optional turns to keep you occupied. All levels can find what suits them. Plenty of length to keep you coming back. The moguls alone make this worth a visit. It's hard to get bored riding these woods.

if you love flowing fast single track with few climbs this is a great trail. I prefer more endurance climbs and fast drop off descents so for me it was just ok. Glacier Ridge at the back of the Brookhaven Town Hall would be a better choice which is still pretty flat but a little more interesting.

This is my favorite Long Island Trail. If you start from cr21, all the Trail including the western loop and diamonds is just over 18 miles. Starting from 25a adds about another mile. 19.35 according to my od. Great riding fast single track. Dont miss Campsite and Fern Valley 2 great diamonds

Ridden this trail once a week since I started biking....Favorite trail on L.I. due to the varied terrain...Fast, twisty singletrack, short steep climbs, and tons of small to large mogals.....Check it out.
