There are several trails and parks.  Download a map of trails HERE.  Some of our personal favorites:


Caumsett State Park 

Caumsett State Park is the largest park in the Town of Huntington. The land was acquired by British Settlers from the Matinecock in 1654. Marshall Field III, grandson to the famous department store owner, came to own the land, and built a mansion and several cottages which still exist within the park today. New York State acquired the park in 1961, and has continued to expand the park by acquiring additional acreage. Caumsett State Park is part of an Important Bird Area (IBA), which includes Cold Spring Harbor, Lloyd Neck, Huntington Bay, Eaton’s Neck, Northport Bay, and Asharoken, as well as the adjacent offshore areas of Long Island Sound.  There is a three mile paved loop trail with fitness stations, as well as an extensive trails system for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The trails traverse many habitats, including salt water marshes, a freshwater pond, upland deciduous forest, and mowed and unmowed fields.

Cold Spring Harbor State Park & Greenbelt Trail

The park is comprised of 40 acres of hilly terrain that offer scenic vistas of the Cold Spring Harbor. It features a mixed hardwood forest with notable large oak specimens that measure three feet in diameter, as well as thickets of wild mountain laurel. The area is ideal for observing spring and fall migrations of a variety of songbirds, and is home to great horned owls and red-tailed hawks. The park serves as the northern trailhead of the Nassau Suffolk Greenbelt Trail that extends to Bethpage State Park and eventually the south shore of Nassau County.

Hecksher Park

Heckscher Park is considered by many to be the "Central Park" of Huntington village.  The park is home to Huntington's annual Fall Festival, Summer Arts Festival, and Spring Tulip Festival. Its pond, playgrounds and beautiful gardens provide a tranquil rest spot in the midst of busy downtown Huntington, a few minutes’ walk away.

Northport Park

This charming waterfront park has a nautical feel. It's small enough to be manageable, yet big enough to offer a playground and walking path along the water so the kids can enjoy the view of the boats. After a visit to the park, stroll Northport Village's quaint Main Street.
