If you want a scenic ride it's ok. Mostly narrow path and slow moving riders can be tough to get around. Don't expect a real workout or path challenge since not a lot of open space.

Easy ride hit the parkway from Field 2 to the lighthouse and back. When you get to a certain part of the lighthouse sand trail you will either have to walk your bike. Unless you have fat tires. Carry some cash and add a trip up the lighthouse as well.

Every summer since I was twelve. The sand stretches make for slow going with bikes; personally, I'd rather walk. We always go back via the (ocean side) beach.

Great ride. Once you get through the sand road. Had to walk to pavement. Beautiful scenery, beaches on both sides. General store was open and was told it will be open till 10/15/2016. Enjoy The Ride!

Awesome summer ride! Once you park at Robert Moses State Park Field 5, head eastward toward Fire Island Lighthouse. There's approximately one half mile of hard packed gravel (and a little soft sand) to get through. Once into Fire Island, you will enjoy biking on smooth concrete. Helmet should be worn and a bell is helpful as you will likely navigate through many pedestrians (locals & tourists) depending on the time of day/year. You can also navigate north and south off the main drag (Central Walk) for beautiful scenery in both directions. The towns (Kismet, Saltaire and Fair Harbor) each have their own business districts with restaurants, bars and convenience stores. I highly recommend this road cycling trail. Enjoy!
