Several trails are found throughout Staten Island's Greenbelt system of trails but only one allows both cyclists and walkers, the Staten Island Greenbelt Multi-Purpose Trail. At 2.6 miles, the crushed gravel trail offers a nice jaunt for joggers, walkers and cyclists alike. The path is 6 feet wide and runs from Rockland Avenue to Richmond Avenue, following along the perimeter of LaTourette golf course and paralleling Forest Hill Road.
Bicycles are prohibited on the other trails in the system, so if you're cycling, be sure not to venture out on the yellow or blue trails, both of which intersect the Multi-Purpose Trail. The trail branches in two directions, one toward Richmond Avenue and the other toward Historic Richmond Town and the St. Andrews Church at Old Mill Road.
Perhaps the best access for the Staten Island Greenbelt Multi-Purpose Trail is from the Nature Center, 700 Rockland Avenue (intersection of Brielle Avenue). For more information, visit the Greenbelt Conservancy
