Trail Training in Brooklyn? Where Should One Go?

Got this note from a reader - opening it up for any comments:

"Came across your blog while researching training for the upcoming Leatherman's Loop. I'm running it this year and am trying to find local trails to train on. I know there are some on Staten Island but do you know of any place to train in Brooklyn?"

My response in part: I've jury-rigged stuff in Prospect Park, though ultimately it's not close to the kind of training you need to do for trail races. So, head to Westchester County/Bear Mountain. Van Cortlandt is great as well. Also consider parts of the Greenbelt Trail in Long Island. Other places?

The northern section of Floyd Bennett has a few trails that could make 1-2+ mile loops.
