Nice trail with several side trails to walk along. You have the option to make the hike as short of as long as you would like.

I did the Cold Spring Harbor portion on some random October day. It was awesome! This part is hilly, so be prepared!

The brickyard at bethpage is awesome!!! If you go now make sure you have a great set of wheels or better of use a fat bike

Beautiful trail. A decent workout, but not too challenging if you want to just enjoy yourself. Really enjoyed it and will take the dog along next time.

Yesterday was amazing I didn’t even know this trail was that long! I was able to see wild rabbits, ducks, geese and more! I love nature and the outdoors. I’m so proud of myself over 15 miles!!

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.

First time .. a nice challenging experience!

This trail sucks! Good luck following directions to trailhead. The section we walked was extremely narrow and unkept. Chigger town!

Actually started at Cold Spring Harbor and went down to Massapequa Park for a total of 19.3 miles. It's a pretty interesting trail. The north side of the island is very hilly, but from middle island downward it's all flat. I grew up on the island and never noticed there were trails running along some main roads and behind people's houses. I don't think there are many places you can experience trails like these. Of course due to the proximity to cars, houses and people, it's anything but serene, but it's a fun goal to accomplish. It took a little less than 8 hours to complete.

This map doesn't show the entire trail. It starts in Massapequa

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.

Beautiful trail to walk on

I began in Massapequa, and have been covering about 5 miles per day, with a return to my car. Each day I found an adequate stopping place, where I could drive to and then pick up the trail, until today. I am probably going to start from the end of the trail and hike to my finishing point today and back to my car. There are a few places were the markers are confusing.

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.
