This ride starts at the Northwest Woods trailhead on Route 114 (between Sag Harbor and East Hampton village) and goes to Cedar Point County Park and back. It is fairly hilly (for Long Island), and includes some historical sites (an old graveyard, a lighthouse, and more) and varied ecosystems (a pine grove, ponds, bluffs, beaches). There are some sandy patches, rooty climbs, and other challenges, but nothing an intermediate rider cannot handle. This route includes a couple of short road segments. Just follow the trail blazes (Red= Foster's Path, Yellow=Northwest Trail, White=Paumanok Path). There are options for beach riding and extending the ride on other trails. The trailhead has a large map that shows more trails, although the map is not weathering well and may not be readable long after this 2017 report.
