Great trail that extends on out along Ocean Parkway to Tobay Beach. Round trip (to Tobay and back) is about 20 miles.

Overall a very well paved trail with very moderate inclines to bike on. Left Cedar Creek Park and made it to the pencil at Jones Beach in less than 40 minutes. On the beach end you can buy food and water. Easy access to restrooms. Not much shade so go early or in the evening.

First half is a slow uphill climb from cedar creek to Jones, parking is free for Nassau residents $10 if you're not. Some bridges are tight and walkers take up entire path constantly. Overall good ride and coming back be ready for some downhill speed!!!

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.
