Perfect for a breezy walk by the ocean. This is one long, flat boardwalk and it is not a loop. You can walk to the end and then walk all the way back, or enter at any of the multiple entry points and decide your own path. Very limited food vendors are currently offering takeaway food and drinks so it’s still worth a walk. You can also sit on the beach and relax. Check out the pier- lots of benches and you get a cool backdrop of the amusement rides and the ocean for pics. Advice from a local, do not wander too far past the amusement rides at night in the summer and if you do, please exercise caution.

Dead flat "trail" on the boardwalk. Multiple entry points and, in summer, thousands upon thousands of people around.

fun stroll along the boardwalk. Make sure to check out the Cyclone rollercoaster, original Nathan's hotdog, and all the awesome Russian restuarants at Brighton Beach

By trail, I mean boardwalk. Take the subway out to Coney Island and walk the boardwalk as a loop. Start at any of the entry points and go down and around to the other end until you return to where you began. I guarantee you'll see more than you might have imagined. Likely you also decided to have a Nathan's hotdog or take a dip in the ocean! Why not right? The oceanfront Russian restaurants offer an amazing lunch special everyday in the summer that includes options like Borscht. We love the workout and change of pace from the forest trails.
