North Shore Rail Trail

ok ride

November, 2022 by senseibarb

Yes the path is new, surrounded by greenery and tuck back from the main road. My biggest complaint is the amount of crossroads at the beginning in smith town. Too much interruptions AND You really need to be careful even when you hit the rider alert button for crosswalks The ride itself is nice, but no facilities on path.

North County Trailway

beautiful & well kept trail!

October, 2022 by 9kw466jjyr

This trail is great despite the middle aged men speeding past you at 90 mph on their LeMonds. I’m not sure if they are bike messengers or just “has beens” trying to live out their dreams of being in the Tour De France, but their speed and shrill shouts of “Left, Left, Left!” piercing the crisp fall air can really ruin what is otherwise a beautiful and relaxing family outing.

Bronx River Greenway

Nice trail

October, 2022 by dd5rz2q65y

Nice trail for running, and it wasn’t too crowded. There were a few scenic areas but I was expecting more. Also if hilly around the start. And decent parking.

Sandy Hook Multi-Use Pathway

Beautiful ride with so much to see

October, 2022 by bestesbrau56_tl

Went on OCT 6 on an absolutely beautiful fall day. The trail is easy but there are so many side trails and that you keep riding through Sea Breeze that we put in 18+ miles in two hours. Lots of access to virtually empty beaches on both sides of the peninsula for relaxing and fishing. No swimming though. We plan to come back to not only ride again but to bring the beach and the fishing gear. It is a gem in one of the most highly populated areas of the US.

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail

Very nice

October, 2022 by dcsnyder

Rode Plainville CT to CT/MA border. Northern section. I like that you go through many towns on the lower half then out in the country from Simsbury north. Beautiful scenery. Paved the whole way, some sections with roots coming through.

North Shore Rail Trail

Great Ride

September, 2022 by youallredeno

Paved trail, it’s clean, 10+ miles long. Well maintained. Great views and you may see turkeys, deer and ground hogs/ gofer not sure what they were. There are bugs out that will hit you in the face and stick to your body will riding

North Shore Rail Trail

nice trail

September, 2022 by david semler

Very nice fully paved trail. Saw some gophers and deer along the way. Maybe an eagle too but not sure. Might have been a hawk or a vulture. Parked at senior center as recommended in the trail information section.

Bethpage Bikeway

Bumpy Ride

September, 2022 by senseibarb

I’ve downgraded my previous review to four stars. I rode the trail yesterday morning, and while it is still a great workout the trail needs to be repaved in several areas. The patchwork that was done is not even with the results making for a bumpy ride in several places. The massapequa side and Bethpage side is flat and smooth. It’s the middle area of the trail that gets a bit rough. Not good for the bike or the butt. Hopefully this can get corrected as the scenery and length make for a stunning ride !

Setauket-Port Jefferson Station Greenway Trail

Poorly maintained & speeding ebikes

August, 2022 by alanpaulthompson

It's a shame this path is not well maintained. There's also a lot of speeding ebikes, so be careful!
