Get Directions

Nassau County opened the Fire Rd. Trail—a broad dirt trail with woods on either side—to on-leash dogs in early 2015. The trail is easily reached by entering the park from Walker St. Ignore the outdated No Dogs Allowed signs, watch out for bikes on the asphalt bike path, and walk straight ahead to the Fire Rd. The trail heads south from there and ends near a pond that is a favorite with dog owners. Please keep dogs off the asphalt bike path as it is dangerous for both them and bikers.
