Seven different trails crisscross this expansive swath of green space near the center of Staten Island, offering visitors numerous opportunities to try to spot a variety of bird species that arent often found in the other boroughs. This mid-length circuit leads into the swampy Bloodroot Valley, past old hospital buildings, and finally up to the summit of Moses Mountain, a small hill created with construction debris from the Staten Island Expressway.
