Located in the Hills of Staten Island, this is a wonderful park to hike. Many trails to explore all Staten Island has to offer. Off the beaten path but worth the trip

Within five minutes you feel like you are in the mountains in upstate New York. Beautiful, clean, quiet and the trails are well marked before dusk. Of course you are not allowed to unleash your dog in NYC but I always do when I don't hear anyone (she is a great dog) and nothing like seeing her run free. One... More

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.
