The Ellen Farrant Memorial Bikeway is a paved path that parallels the Wantagh Parkway from Cedar Creek Park to Jones Beach. To one side is highway and to the East are marshes, waterways and tidal flats and all the nature and scenery that comes with it. The Southern terminus of the trail ends in a huge set of bike racks and signs warning that bicycles are not allowed on Jones Beach.

All paved so it's friendly for longboarders, skateboarders, and rollerbladers.

From the parking fields to the beach is a little more 4 miles and there are 3 bridges to cross over.

I never stopped moving but at least 5 ticks found me. Definitely spray the bug repellent before you go here.

Great bike path,even for beginners. The hardest part of this is the fact that is 4 miles each way and there are two big hills. However, for the hills you are encouraged to walk your bike up/down them.
This path can be more difficult depending on the wind.

Nice trail for rollerblading! Only negative is that you're along Wantagh Parkway the whole time so cars are constantly going by.
