Nassau-Suffolk Greenbelt Trail is a 25.1 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Woodbury, NY that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
This trail is pretty good. I usually start from the cold spring harbour end. The cold spring stretch gives you a really good workout. Few areas in between do tend to get swampy after the rain.
Did it in 3hikes.
Kevin- Some portions are pretty narrow, as well as steep.
QUESTION: Former avid single track rider. Injured 4 years ago but finally getting back on the bike, actually a recumbent trike with mountain setup. Ready to start trying easy / moderate dirt off-road 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 miss categorized trails.
Thanks. Any other bent riders in the ny / long island area?
If you are looking for a challenging trail run on Long Island this is for you. Most of the running/ hiking portion is seperated from the mountain bike trails. The portion by Cold Spring Harbor is the most difficult . The Long Island Greater running Club has a 25K and 50K trail race every year
Best hiking between Cold Spring Harbor and Woodbury. South of that it flattens out to a nice walk. :)
Great ride large area close to most things , maintained decently lits of fun.
This is a great ride from bethpage to Stillwell. I can't venture the whole way anymore. Too old ha ha but years ago when it was less eroded I would. A great workout. Especially when you hit the fifth section north of bethpage.
Awesome very cool
One of my favorite trails to train on. Starting from bethpage parking lot north to Jericho. The return trip is very fast. Not very technical though but a great way to unwind your mind
great fun and challenging trail w/ a few nice climbs. I like to start at Jericho Tpk & woodbury Rd next to Stop & SHop and head south into Bethpage park, ride in the park and head back
Fun trail that can become sandy in the summertime with all the weekend warriors going out.
