Walked on beach throughout this trail. The boardwalk ends on B126. The next boardwalk is located at Riis Beach. So walking the beach is inevitable unless you’re biking. It’s worthwhile walking on the beach from beach 9 to the end. Slightly changing landscape throughout. The conditions of the beach varies throughout. On some parts, the beach is eroded. You will not feel lonely on a solo hike. Lots to see and think about. Challenging physically.

I biked this trail. So much fun. When it ends I don't think you can bike anymore.

Great walkway/bike path. Nice ocean breeze. Map is incorrect. Boardwalk ends at 125th street, but starts miles before 60th.

Really nice walk... it isn't a true boardwalk as it is all concrete. It is wide and should withstand any future storm. Great beach... pretty easy to get to from the city. Good for people watching. There isn't much else along this stretch...you have to west on 116th to find any decent eats. It is an easy 10 miles and a good way to get the steps in.

It's just a boardwalk, nothing there at all. Be careful at night there.
