This paved bike path which I rode today from Haypath Road to it's southern terminus at Merrick Road is a joy to ride. The northern parts are newer and smoother than the southern parts. From Sunrise Highway to Merrick road the pavement is rather bumpy, this probably being the older portion of the route. From Southern State Parkway to Sunrise highway the path can be a bit congested, however the parts from Bethpage State park to the northern end at the LIE were much less populated.
