Part of the more expansive Greenbelt this park is set up higher in the hills and a bit darker. It connects to the other Greenbelt trails and ion t's own the trails are shorter but the canopy and foliage is denser. It's also more swampy in certain parts.

In the smallest borough of NYC, this oasis (part of the environmental preserve called the Green Belt) is this walk in park where you can feel separated in nature from the busting life of 18 million people in a 50 mile radius.

Great trails and a beautiful view. If you like to walkt these trails are for you. You have a selection of far you wouldlike to go and how difficult youwould like your walk to be. It is so serene in these woods.

High Rock is part of the Greenbelt which will always remain wild. There are many trails through the park and they are well marked so its impossible to get lost if you stay on the trails. The park is wooded and if you didn't know you were on Staten Island you would think you were upstate somewhere. I have seen... More

I love coming here for a nice walk with friends or to bring my dog. The place is huge and very easy to get lost in which I have many times. The scenery and birds are spectacular. The ponds are beautiful and every time I come I always find a new place amongst high rock. Theres so much to see... More

Hard to believe you are still in nyc when you pick a trail and go. Any season any time of year is a good time to enjoy the greenbelt. Deer a plenty, red tail hawks. What will you discover.

Love to hike in the peace and quiet, you forget that you are in New York City! It's the only place on Staten Island you won't hear traffic or expressway sounds!

Follow trails in the Greenbelt and enjoy the beauty and serenity of nature. You need a car to get there, but parking is limited.

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
