Laurel Ridge Setauket Woods Nature Preserve

Well-known by mountain bikers, this is a 15-mile twisting trail.

Maps show five different loops with names like BJs Way, West Side Loop, and Wild Laurel. The Black Loop is the most challenging. The Blue Loop covers the most ground.

Great for hikes, trail running and mountain biking.

The trail is maintained through a combined effort of the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, and C.L.I.M.B. (Concerned Long Island Mountain Bicyclists).

Dogs are allowed on leash.

Commentators have said that the east trail is a good beginner-to-moderate bike trail and the west trail is for experts.
