From the Nassau HP area in Old Westbury go back down to Wheatley Road and turn right. Continue west as it passes more large wooded estates until you get to Cedar Swamp Road (NY 107). Turn right. Follow several miles south to junction with Jericho Turnpike (NY 25) just past NY 106 and just before Long Island Expressway. Follow 25 east through Syosset and Woodbury into Suffolk County. Look for Jones Lane or West Hills Road just past large high school on right. Follow several miles down to Reservoir Road and take to top of hill per Michael Schwartz's report. Road is sometimes gated at park entrance; you can park on Ridge Road just before gate.

Walk to usual HP area but take note also of area on trail to left a short distance off road that seems to reach highest ground about a hundred feet from the road.

For western areas go back down to West Hills and turn left. Go back a mile or so to Chichester Road and turn left. Follow past old houses and woods to Sweet Hollow. Turn left and follow to pull-off Mike mentioned.
