Exploring Trail View State Park

Since 2010, Mohammad Riaz has served as the manager of the National Restoration Group, Inc., in the Bronx, providing project management for a diverse range of high rise construction projects across New York City. When away from work, Mohammad Riaz enjoys hiking near his home in Westbury on Long Island.

Approximately 15 minutes from Westbury in the hamlet of Woodbury, Trail View State Park offers 400 acres to explore. Designated a state park in 2002, it came into the possession of New York State in the 1960s.

Visitors to the park enjoy a network of trails open to hiking and biking, as well as some opportunities for cross-country skiing and horseback riding. Its terrain encompasses hills, open fields, hardwood forests, and marshes, all within 300 feet of sea level. The park offers excellent bird-watching opportunities, particularly during spring and fall migrations, because of its location on the Atlantic flyway.

Trail View State Park also links to the Nassau/Suffolk Greenbelt Trail which runs from Nassau County’s southern shore to Cold Spring Harbor State Park in Suffolk County.
