Nature Escapes Near Queens, NYC: Hiking, Parks + Beaches

Sometimes a walk in the woods or an afternoon hunting for sea critters on a beach is just exactly what you need. Here are some of our favorite nature escapes within 30 to 60 minutes of central Queens, NYC.

Sands Point Preserve hiking

Starting in early May, our family began to venture out of our Jackson Heights apartment to various parks in Queens, desperate for a change of scenery and more space (and grass) in which to play. At first we kept within a 20-minute radius, and we learned to take every precaution we could: avoiding others, wearing masks, using sanitizer, limiting stops to takeout. And we left early in the morning, which meant we encountered far fewer people.

As time passed and the weather warmed, we drove a little farther, and added beaches to the mix. All of the parks and hikes below make perfect day trips from New York City. They’re within 30 to 60 minutes of Jackson Heights and central Queens in general, and are ideal for any season. Most important, they get you into the natural world fast, and that’s a restorative place to be.
