I did the Cold Spring Harbor portion on some random October day. It was awesome! This part is hilly, so be prepared!

Beautiful trail. A decent workout, but not too challenging if you want to just enjoy yourself. Really enjoyed it and will take the dog along next time.

This trail sucks! Good luck following directions to trailhead. The section we walked was extremely narrow and unkept. Chigger town!

Actually started at Cold Spring Harbor and went down to Massapequa Park for a total of 19.3 miles. It's a pretty interesting trail. The north side of the island is very hilly, but from middle island downward it's all flat. I grew up on the island and never noticed there were trails running along some main roads and behind people's houses. I don't think there are many places you can experience trails like these. Of course due to the proximity to cars, houses and people, it's anything but serene, but it's a fun goal to accomplish. It took a little less than 8 hours to complete.

Great spot

I began in Massapequa, and have been covering about 5 miles per day, with a return to my car. Each day I found an adequate stopping place, where I could drive to and then pick up the trail, until today. I am probably going to start from the end of the trail and hike to my finishing point today and back to my car. There are a few places were the markers are confusing.

This trail is pretty good. I usually start from the cold spring harbour end. The cold spring stretch gives you a really good workout. Few areas in between do tend to get swampy after the rain.

Kevin- Some portions are pretty narrow, as well as steep.

If you are looking for a challenging trail run on Long Island this is for you. Most of the running/ hiking portion is seperated from the mountain bike trails. The portion by Cold Spring Harbor is the most difficult . The Long Island Greater running Club has a 25K and 50K trail race every year

Best hiking between Cold Spring Harbor and Woodbury. South of that it flattens out to a nice walk. :)

This is a great ride from bethpage to Stillwell. I can't venture the whole way anymore. Too old ha ha but years ago when it was less eroded I would. A great workout. Especially when you hit the fifth section north of bethpage.

One of my favorite trails to train on. Starting from bethpage parking lot north to Jericho. The return trip is very fast. Not very technical though but a great way to unwind your mind

great fun and challenging trail w/ a few nice climbs. I like to start at Jericho Tpk & woodbury Rd next to Stop & SHop and head south into Bethpage park, ride in the park and head back

Fun trail that can become sandy in the summertime with all the weekend warriors going out.
