I like to walk with my dog off leash. When I lived in Nassau I went to Bethpage State park, Massapequa preserve etc and wandered the back trails problem free (yes i pick up my dog's $%#@). Technically we werent supposed to be there but since we caused no problems--we had no problems.

Any suggestions where i can go in the Port Jeff/Rocky Point area? I don't want a dog park I want a wooded area where we can walk/jog without causing problems.

I know there is a huge preserve in Rocky point but I believe it is used for biking and hunting---don't want to get in anyones way or get shot at!



Thanks

Youre fine in the Rocky Point preserve....no one will hassle you on the Beach in the winter either.

For others: Theres a Bark Park on the South Side of The Rocky Point Preserve in Middle Island behind the old K-Mart

Working for Dog Parks in Nassau and Suffolk County Long Island

Check out Coindre Hall

edit: after reading that site it seems like off leash in not permitted at Coindre Hall, though every time I have been there I have seen numerous dogs off leash (like 5 at a time)

Brookhaven State Park, you can enter it from William Floyd, RT 25 & RT25A
its huge & seriously under used. I do not believe the issue hunting permits inside the State park but they do on other DEC patroled areas in Ridge.
We hike every week with our dog & no leash.

Blydenburg Park in Smithtown.

There's a huge dog run there but also a lot of great trails around the lake. You're supposed to keep the leash on but many do not.

Most town parks and local village parks are ok with dogs off leash if it is not during peak times. (As long as your dog is well behaved.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. My dog is very well behaved--I just don't want to be a hunting trophy!
