Long Pond Greenbelt Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Hike past the largest pond in the Long Pond Greenbelt and venture through wetlands, ponds, and hardwood forests."
--Susan Finch, Best Easy Day Hikes: Long Island (Falcon Guides).
"Situated on 1000 acres only a stone’s throw south of the Village of Sag Harbor, the Long Pond Greenbelt offers a connecting series of freshwater ponds, marshes, swamps, and brooks stretching from the north at Peconic Bay, south to the Atlantic Ocean. Named after the largest pond along this interconnected chain, the Long Pond Greenbelt is home to more than thirty globally rare plant species—the highest concentration in New York state. The loop hike circling this unique property travels along the banks of several ponds and along an abandoned railway that formerly connected Bridgehampton Station with Long Wharf, Sag Harbor. Utilized from 1870 to 1939, the track was abandoned, and then removed to be recycled during World War II. Many of the trails in this park are unmarked, making a map purchased from the Southampton Trails Preservation Society essential to the outing."
--Tammy McCarley, Best Hikes with Dogs: New York City & Beyond (The Mountaineers Books).
