Bethpage Bikeway

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Bethpage Bikeway is one of Long Island's most popular trails. It connects Merrick Road in Massapequa with Bethpage State Park, and includes additional trail north to Trail View State Park in Woodbury. There are a few parkway exit crossings and a few moderately busy street crossings but safe for families with kids. All crossings are clearly marked, and drivers are generally courteous and alert.

A major road crossing at Sunrise Highway, near the trail's southern end, has a stop light and crossing lane for safety.

Parking and Trail Access

Take Route 135 to the Bethpage State Park exit and enter where you see signs for the picnic grounds. Note that there's a parking fee during the season. Ask anyone in the parking lot at Bethpage Park where the paved trail begins.

There is also a large parking lot at the Long Island Railroad station with direct access to trail. No fees.

Love this trail. It's kind of like a world within itself and away from the daily routine. Sort of like a mini-vacation when I walk or ride my bike there. Birds, turtles, rabbits, chipmunks, fish, and more. Just a nice place to be. read more

Bicycle trails are great for people that use wheelchairs and this one is very well maintained. This afternoon I explored the southern end of the Bethpage Bikeway in the Massapequa Preserve. The surface is asphalt and there are virtually no cracks. Beautiful more
