1978-2018 Our 40th Year
The LONG ISLAND GREENBELT TRAIL CONFERENCE is a unique, non-profit grassroots organization that has created more than 200 miles of hiking paths on Long Island, including three National Recreation Trails. We are dedicated to protecting open space and our scenic Greenbelt trails for all to enjoy. We lead over 200 FREE GUIDED HIKES each year; and have donated a total of over 500,000 volunteer hours to Long Island’s parks and trails.
Our MAPS of our trails and woodlands, contributed by naturalist Larry Paul, are acknowledged as the very best and most detailed of any on Long Island. We encourage you to JOIN the Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference and help us KEEP LONG ISLAND GREEN! Use this web site to learn more about our organization.
