This greenway route leads through woodlands, wetlands, marshlands, fields, tidal flats, and more to bring you to some of Queens’ remotest parks. You’ll bike through several park complexes, along Little Neck Bay, stop off at a marina, and arrive at the secluded Civil War–era bastion of Fort Totten, which now serves as public park. Here, tranquil roads amble past weatherworn buildings and a waterfront gazebo affords calming views of Long Island Sound. Your return journey leads underneath the towering Throgs Neck Bridge and back to Flushing Meadows Corona Park via residential roads.
