Kings Park Hike & Bike Trail Description

The Kings Park Hike & Bike Trail runs for 1.5 miles between Old Dock Road at Church Street in Kings Park and Nissequogue River State Park. The trail is a town of Smithtown park and follows an abandoned railroad corridor that was once an old spur to Kings Park State Hospital.

There are plans to extend the trail from its current end at Old Dock Rock south along the park to Main Street.

Kings Park Hike & Bike Trail Reviews

"This trail's primary trailhead is conveniently located within 2 blocks of the Kings Park Long Island Railroad station, making it an ideal recreational destination for those without access to an automobile. However, if you do want to drive here, plenty of parking is available in a church parking lot at the intersection of Church Street and Old Dock Road.

The trail is nicely paved, and thus suitable for walking, biking, jogging, and/or inline skating. There is one active public street crossing along the entire route. About 50 percent of the trail is lined with shade trees that should provide escape from the sun during warmer months. However, the other half is not; bring a hat and sunglasses if you intend on walking the entire route on a hot day!

The trail begins near the center of town and ends at a recreational field within a state park. Portable restrooms are located at the recreation field and several dining establishments are, of course, available within Kings Park’s business district.

This is a nice trail if you’re looking for something paved and not too long."
