The Southard’s Pond Trail begins at the tennis courts on the north side of Park Avenue in Babylon Village. As you continue on the path, you will hike through the tunnel where Sunrise Highway is above you. Continuing north, the trail covers a long, secluded wooded stretch before going underneath Southern State Parkway and its service road. Belmont Lake appears as you exit the tunnel.
