HikeLI: Forsythe Meadow County Park

Where: Forsythe Meadow County Park (Stony Brook, NY)

What: Hike (trail, unpaved)

Snacks: Druthers Coffee (Stony Brook, NY)

This place is almost literally around the corner from Avalon on Hollow Road in Stony Brook. The entrance has the typical easy to miss sign of smaller county parks. The lot only holds about three cars.

I didn’t track mileage, but the walk took about a half hour – through a field, trails that feel familiar and a bamboo forest. Mix of white and yellow blazes. The trail is self contained, so getting lost doesn’t appear to be an issue. You are in a residential area, so be mindful.

It’s always nice to come home. Had a pleasant orange spiced from Druthers Coffee. Pleasant chilly morning.

See you on the trails,
