Intermediate to advanced singletrack

Carl Thelemann

E-Bikes Unknown

Features -none-


This trail provides challenging singletrack less than an hour from NYC. I rated this 'advanced' to be conservative. It's probably more intermediate/advanced. Single black diamond on the ski-scale. Anyway: One-way singletrack through mostly woods. The trail is blazed by white triangles and arrows at intersections. There aren't any huge drops but a good number of the downhills and uphills are certainly technical. Downhills and uphills mainly consist of going into and out of ravines.

A big feature of this trail is the half dozen or so downhills that are basically stairs created by timbers and fill. These can be quite intense going down; some have tight exits and others you can roller-coaster up the other side (relatively speaking). The terrain is basically hard-packed dirt with small stretches of sand and cobbles especially in the ravine bottoms. There are the usual assortment of roots and some potentially harmful-to-tires sapling stumps in the middle of the trail.

A bike club on Long Island (C.L.I.M.B. - Concerned Long Island Mt Bikers) created it. My hat's off to whoever can clean it. The rest of the park is rideable also - easy Jeep trails and singletrack abound. Also, check out more Long Island trails info on the C.L.I.M.B. web site.

Excellent place to ride. CLIMB does a great job maintaining the trails. LIRR Syosset train station is close to the park. Use can use "Syosset High School" as a drop-off/pick-up point (across the street from one of the trailheads). The map doesn't show additional trails to the south of Route 25 (Jericho Turnpike). Another 2-3 miles of single track which leads to the "Bethpage Bikeway" Jan 4, 2017

Its more than 2 or 3 miles. The whole trail start and ends at bethpage state park main parking area just left of where you pulled in ( if you are looking towards the fields. 1st stop is the next major parking lot north, at washington ave just south of the lie. There an optional 3 miles across the street in manetto hills that spots you back where you started. Continue north till you get to the northern state. Once again about mile across the street. Re cross the street and continue north until you get to trail view. This used to be called the nassau greenbelt but I dont know if the name has changed. All together the whole thing together is probably somewhere close to 30 miles. Feb 10, 2019
