Middle Island

By - I recommend Cathedral Pines County Park in Middle Island as a place to run. To get there get off Long Island Expressway at exit 66 North pass thru the village of Yaphank and continue North on Middle Island Road. Entrance is on the left just before Longwood Road. Park in the first lot on the left, and find the path (starts at same place as mountain bike trail), pass around the vehicle barrier and follow road through the woods, and around the camping areas, when you hit the paved road turn left and continue to the start. Distance is about 2 miles per lap. Mostly hard packed dirt road, with one small uphill section and one downhill. Submitted by Eric Rehbein.
