Uplands West Loop Nc Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Long Island chapter of The Nature Conservancy has its headquarters in farm buildings that are surrounded by open fields and upland woods on Lawrence Hill Road, in Cold Spring Harbor. There are trails through the preserve that not only visit varied terrain, but also connect with the Nassau- Suffolk Greenbelt Trail to permit a 2.25-mile loop walk. A detailed guide is available at the kiosk. The trails are open daily dawn to dusk. During office hours you can visit the Conservancy’s library. Though it is a national organization, The Nature Conservancy works quietly and most effectively on the local level, and the two chapters on Long Island have been responsible for the acquisition of more than seventy natural areas here, many of them ecologically fragile. The Sunken Forest on Fire Island, the North Shore Wildlife Sanctuary, and a section of Caumsett State Park are all properties that The Nature Conservancy helped set aside for conservation purposes. We have walked a number of these natural areas that belong to the Conservancy with great satisfaction, and they are open to serious walkers with permits."

"The northern end of the Nassau–Suffolk Greenbelt Trail offers some of Long Island’s most challenging hiking. With its highest point coming in at a mere 400 feet above sea level, Long Island gets a bad rap from hikers who don’t live there. How, they ask, can it really be interesting and challenging to hike on such flat land? Consider heading to Cold Spring Harbor State Park for a few hours to find out. Located along the ridge overlooking the inlet that gave Cold Spring Harbor its name, it has the features of a moraine, the ridges pushed up by the ends of glaciers. You will find yourself hiking up and down the sometimes steep bumps that occasionally require switchbacks, a feature not often seen on the trails of Long Island."

"Hike through grassy meadows to isolated upland woods on a ninety-seven-acre preserve."
