Staten Island – Staten Island Greenbelt

In the heart of Staten Island is 2,800-acres of nature’s rugged beauty — the Greenbelt. The Greenbelt features mature forests, wetlands, meadows, wildlife, over 35-miles of well marked hiking trails and a multipurpose trail. The mostly flat 2.6 mile circuit, multipurpose trail, has a crushed gravel surface and six-foot wide walkways. It extends westward from Rockland Avenue along Forest Hill Road hugging the perimeter of LaTourette golf course toward Richmond Avenue. The Yellow and Blue trails intersect the multipurpose trail here (see trail map). About midway, a leg of the trail branches off toward Historic Richmond Town/St. Andrews Church at Old Mill Road at the base of Richmond Hill Road (aka Snake Hill). To make a loop, take the Blue and Red trails or follow Rockland Ave and Richmond Ave to Old Mill Road. There are numerous bus routes that access the Greenbelt Nature Center. For access from the ferry, take the SIR to New Dorp then take the S57 to the Rockland Ave./Brielle Ave. stop.

Longer Run Option: Add Cloves Lake Park, via Ayamar Avenue.  Cloves Lake Park Route
