Very wooded no signs and dead end trails. Beautiful views but lots of traffic noise.

Great ride! Very scenic and challenging in spots. I consider this my "home trail" and bike it quite often. Mostly ride south from the southern end of Bethpage Bikeway, over the Southern State Parkway bridge, cross Linden Street and head into the Massapequa preserve. Once across Sunrise Hwy., proceed south through the preserve to Merrick Road and across to Alhambra Road and proceed south to Alhambra Beach. Also check out the 'hidden' unpaved and peaceful stretch of bike path between Clark Blvd. and Linden Street on the west side of the creek. Always such an enjoyable ride! Truly one of my favorite trails year round!

My first time in this trail and it was amazing. I usually go to jones beach and this trail is 10 times better. Less people, the trail itself is wider and the scenery is beautiful! Definitely will be coming to this trail from now. I started from Massapequa Park on sunrise highway and went up to Plainview is a total of 17-18 miles (both ways). You can even go fishing in the lake in Massapequa.

Awesome except for the few bikers that thought they were in the Tour de France. They almost collided with my son and we were clearly moving out of the way for them. Jerks! Other than that the walk is easy to do with a family or alone. Great views and plenty of cover from the sun.
