Picturesque, well-groomed nature trails, including the historic Walt Whitman Trail to Jayne's Hill (Long Island's highest peak, at an elevation of 400 feet), wind through this highly popular, mixed-deciduous forested park. West Hills flora and fauna include wild Mountain Laurel, Moccasin Flower, several fern species, salamanders, turtles, chipmunk, squirrel and red fox. Horses (both privately owned and leased from the on-site public Sweet Hills Stables) enjoy some of the finest and most picturesque bridle paths on Long Island at West Hills County Park. Camping at West Hills is offered to organized youth groups only. Campsites, lean-tos, and primitive shelters are available year-round. Reservations are required. Sweet Hollow Hall, a former church, now serves as a public meeting hall for several not-for-profit organizations and clubs. Starflower Experiences, Inc., offers environmental education programs for children at the hall. Sweet Hollow Hall is a handicapped accessible facility.
