Hempstead Lake State Park is still undeveloped as of 8-10-18. There are dirt/sand multiuse trails around the lake that are relatively flat(id say best for fat tires). North of the southern state parkway is horse riding paths where there are more challenging hills. Again this trail is not monitored or cleaned. This map is not 100% either. There are trail offshoots along the shoreline and the hill sections are north of the southern state(not listed on this map) will be added as i have time.

Access Info

Trail starts and ends at the parking lot, but there are ways into the park from other locations.
