A narrow island of nature in Long Island urban sprawl. The Bethpage Bikeway generally follows the Parkway from the Massapequa Preserve in the South to Bethpage State Park in the North. Only about a third of its length borders the highway itself, the rest is tucked in an island of wild on a sea of urban sprawl. The trail itself is an even paved surface for the entire length. Massapequa County Preserve has plenty of lake, stream and marshy environs. Three miles of side roads will connect you the the Jones Beach Bikeway to the South (15 miles total).

Easy ride, usually very crowded on weekends. The winds can make on direction or the other very tough.
Ride this 3-4 times a week, always a good ride, great views, mix of serious and leisurely cyclists.
Beautiful year round and easy for all ages.
Beautiful scenery, not to crowded. Very enjoyable.
Wish it would expand from north to south shore.
Great day, beautiful trails, so much wildlife and the smell of the flowers was everywhere. Clean trails and respectable people on the trail. Highly recommended......
