I'm from out of town and found this while looking for a place to run. I saw many walkers on the trail as well as a few bikers. I saw no dogs on trail at all. I was on a small section that was beautifully paved. looks like a great place to possibly rollerblade too! I ran on a Thursday morning around 9-10am.
Kevin C. on Bethpage Bikeway Trail
QUESTION: Former avid single track rider. Injured 4 years ago but finally getting back on the bike, actually it is recumbent trike with mountain setup. Ready to start trying easy / moderate dirt paths but I do not know if this trail is wide enough... my trike is approximately 2x width of reg bike. I have seen a lot of trails mismarked as single track or mpontain biking.
Thanks. Any other bent riders in the ny / long island area.
