Rode it this past Sunday mid-morning with my 14 year old son. We started at the nothern most parking (which has space for 6 cars + 1 handicap spot). We rode to Sunrise Highway and back, about 20 miles round trip. As it got later in the morning, the path became more crowded mostly with pedestrians toward the southern end of the route. Similar to the Vanderbilt path, there were pedestrians and cyclists with ear plugs or headphones. Some cyclists were inexperienced on paths; stopping in the middle, pulling off to the left without looking behind...
All in all the path is nicely paved and is best for cycling in the morning on weekends, or possibly more times on weekdays.

Perfect trail for road bikes, running, walking, etc. there is a dirt trail that runs parallel for most of the time which is good for newbie trail bikers or any trail runners. Ended up in massapequa park. Not sure if this is considered the same trail but they merged seamlessly. Not too crowded was alone for 5-10 min stretches. Some dogs on leash. Will come again. $8 parking fee if you park in the bethpage lot.
