Long Island Greenway
What We’re Doing
Creating a nearly 200-mile greenway through 27 communities from Manhattan to Montauk.
Connect millions of New Yorkers to each other, to nature, and to the 750-mile Empire State Trail.
Trails connect people to nature and communities to their neighbors. We’re planning a bike and pedestrian multi-use path for more than seven million New Yorkers.
The Long Island Greenway—a nearly 200-mile extension to the Empire State Trail—will complete a truly statewide trail from Buffalo and Plattsburgh to Montauk.
2018 Feasibility Report
This project kicked off in 2018 with a feasibility study, determining if and how the Greenway could come to life. A particular challenge was the first 25 miles of the trail, navigating the dense urban landscape of Long Island.
Race for the Greenway
Trust for Public Land is creating the Long Island Greenway, a biking and pedestrian trail that will stretch nearly 200 miles from Manhattan to Montauk. You can Race for the Greenway to make it happen! The Long Island Greenway will provide a trail for walkers, bikers, hikers, and runners, passing through 27 communities.
