Bicycle Paths

1 BETHPAGE BIKEWAY - total mileage: 9.5 milesThis paved route runs the length of Bethpage Parkway, cutting through Bethpage State park and the Massapequa Preserve to Merrick Road. It's good for beginners - most terrain ranges from falt to gentle slopes.  The route can be picked up anywhere off the parkway or at the picnic area parking lot.
   
2 BETHPAGE MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL - total mileage: 4 miles.  A marked loop trail, through pine forest, has a variety of terrain for the mountain biker.  There's a mogul section, sand section and two challenging hills.   Park at the picnic area lot in Bethpage State Park and look for white triangles on trees for starting point south of gatehouse.
   
3 JONES BEACH - total mileage: 4.5 miles.  From Cedar Creek Park, south of Merrick Road, just east of the Wantagh Parkway, there's a path parallel to the parkway to Jones Beach, near the amphitheater.
   
4 COLD SPRING HARBOR-SAGAMORE HILL - total mileage: 36 miles.  History spans the centuries on this hilly ride, which starts in Cold Spring Harbor.  Route 25A winds into Oyster Bay, where Oyster Bay Cove Road north goes to the Theodore Roosevelt grave, bird sanctuary and up Cove Neck Road to his home, Sagamore Hill.
   
5  HUNTINGTON-LLOYD NECK - total mileage: 16 miles.  A bit hilly but scenic.  From Huntington village, take West Neck Road through Lloyd Harbor to Lloyd Neck peninsula, site of Caumsett State Park and Target Rock National Wildlife Refuge.  At Caumsett, a two mile route leads to a pond and the Sound.
 
6  GREENBELT MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL - total mileage: 8 miles.  A portion of this national recreation trail is marked for mountain cyclists.  From Bethpage State Park picnic area north to Stillwell Woods in Syosset; challenging hills.  At Stillwell Woods, bikers can opt for a 4 mile loop with some difficult terrain.
 
7 HECKSCHER PARK, OAKDALE - total mileage: 30 miles.  This flat, double-loop tour starts in Heckscher State Park, where a 5-mile bike route goes past beaches and a boat basis, then north to South Country Road and east past Bayard Cutting Arboretum and Connetquot State Park to the Montauk Highway fork.  That's the start of the second loop, to Shore Road along the Connetquot River
 
8 .NISSEQUOQUE-STONY BROOK-OLD FIELD - total mileage: 28 miles.  A hilly route through historic Stony Brook.  Begins near the mouth of the Nissequoque in Smithtown and goes via Moriches Road to Head of the Harbor, where Harbor Road leads into Stony Brook.  The route then moves north through Setauket and the Old Field estate area to the lighthouse.  The return runs south via Pond Path to Nissequoque River Road, back to Smithtown.
 
9 EASTPORT TRAIL - total mileage: 8.5 miles.   Located on Routes 51 and 11 in Eastport.  A relatively flat, single track trail that loops through wooded areas.  A free DEC permit (call 444-0273) is required, as well as a helmet and eye protection.
 
10 NORTH FORK - total mileage: 40 miles.  This is a round trip of rolling hills and flat terrain through wine country.  Fall foliage is spectacular.  From Mattituck, ride past vineyards east on Route 25, or take the quieter Middle Road to the north, which joins Route 25 at Greenport.  Then continue to Orient Point.
 
11 SHELTER ISLAND - total mileage: 25 miles.  A ferry ride away from the North or South Forks.  This is a moderately easy butterfuly-shapped, east-west route across the Island.  The west loop swings around on Nostrand Parkway along Southold Bay; the east loop goes around Rams Island, a peninsula jutting into Gardiners Bay.
   
12 CATHEDRAL PINES COUNTY PARK - total mileage: 6 miles.  This mostly flat, wooded, single-track route has several optional hill climbs (which add 1.5 miles to ride).  Trail accommodates all levels, although the hill climbs are  for more experienced riders.  A Suffolk County Green Key card is required and there is a parking fee on weekends during the summer.
   
13 JONES BEACH (Ellen Farrant Memorial Bikeway) - total mileage: 4.5 miles.  From Cedar Creek Park, south of Merrick Road, just east of the Wantagh Parkway, a path parallel to the parkway to Jones Beach State Park, near the amphitheater.
