More than three times the size of Central Park, Staten Island’s Greenbelt is a haven for New York City’s nature lovers. The Greenbelt is a contiguous series of forests, meadows, wetlands, ponds, and parks that stretches across the heart of Staten Island. There are miles of trails of varying difficulty for hikers and bikers, bringing you through the Greenbelt’s many peaks and valleys. At nearly 3,000 acres, many native creatures call this vast woodland home, making it a bird watchers paradise. From atop Moses Mountain, one of the Greenbelt’s highest points, it is easy to forget that you’re in New York City. Visitors should start their adventure at the Greenbelt Nature Center, where they can pick up trail maps, access the trail system, explore the educational exhibits, or learn more about this fascinating park from one of the knowledgeable rangers.
