Our next challenge: Eight miles of paved bike path along the Beth Page State Park, all the way down to the Massapequa Preserve.
Set your GPS to park at N 40.752654, W 73.465834. An Empire State Pass is probably required before 6pm on weekends and holidays — or a daily park entry fee may be levied.
From Jerricho Turnpike go South on 135 Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway, take Exit 8, left over the Expressway. After the ramp back North on the Expressway take the first left into Bethpage State Park, Picnic Area, Polo Field & Bike Path (opposite 20 Manchester Drive, Bethpage, NY 11714).
