Nassau-Suffolk Trail


According to the Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference, the Nassau-Suffolk Trail is "a backyard wilderness of surprising diversity and contrast. Though it traverses a heavily populated area, the trail offers hikers the opportunity to stroll through secluded woodlands rich in plant and animal life". Ken and I handled this in the same way as the Greenbelt Trail - break it into easily-managed segments. We got off to a good start, completing two segments, but have yet to get to the third.

Segment 1
