comfortable 4 mile walk back and forth from parking lot 6. beautiful view of the beach, always a great breeze to keep you cool. can stop for a coffee/beverage/snack/restroom a few spots along the way if you like.

Easy, pleasant walk with great ocean views. Crowded on weekends.

Smooth paved and no cars. Does it get any better ?
Highly recommend for all types of bikes and all level cyclists.

Long and nice boardwalk just beside the beach, can walk across shoreline, beautiful beach view. It was not crowded, probably due to off season, visited on March 29 2018.

Busy streets on both ends. Not sure why when you are next to the parkway there isn’t a barricade. That being said, when you’re not by the busy streets, it’s actually peaceful.

I love this little walk, very relaxing, the only downside is that somewhere in the middle there is a parkway literally on your right, but otherwise very peaceful and relaxing. Not a hike, just walk.

Wide, well made boardwalk that's a lovely walk. Much cleaner than the beach, unfortunately...

Great place for a weekend getaway; if the traffic doesn't get to you too much, that is.

fairly flat except for the bridges. the wind can work against you.
on the weekend it's fairly busy and not a lot of bike courtesy going on. decent ride.

8.5 miles to TOBAY!

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.

on Jones Beach Bikeway

Sunday, January 17, 2016

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.

It an easy ride during the week depending on the weather. If it's hot it gets packed with people so you have to learn to share the boardwalk with everyone. I walk end to end and bike it as well. Both are great for some exercise

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