This is a truly wonderful place to feel as if you have gotten away from the big city and entered nature's serene vista! A real nice area to walk through when the weather gets warmer!

What a gem; I come here as often as I can. It's a wonderful, unspoiled woodland with lots of trails. Just be careful to keep track of your wanderings as it is easy to get lost here.

My boyfried at the time wanted to take me to this park for he always went there as a little boy. It had trails to follow and was didn't seem that noticable from the highway which gave it great privacy. We enjoyed the smaill sreams throughout the park and the species that grew in it.

As I had said before for other Staten Island locations. If you are local then may be going over there once in a few years is OK, but there is really nothing special to see and do over there.

It is very easy to forget you are still in the five boroughs when you are here. Very peaceful greenery; I find it reminiscent of woods I've been to upstate.

If u enjoy nature, animals, sights, and some history, come and explore the Greenbelt of S.I. I've been biking, and hiking these woods for over 20 years. If you want to leave the city for a while with out leaving the city, you must come here. There are some nice vistas, swamps, ponds, streams, tall hills, and all different types... More

I believe this is the best hike on Staten Island. Great to take the kids along as well. It feels so remote and distant from the hustle and bustle and crazy traffic that is the middle of Staten Island.
