Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Jones Point Path occupies an abandoned motor vehicle route (old US Route 9W). The path provides bicyclists with a relatively safe bypass to a dangerous section of busy US Route 9W near Bear Mountain, NY. It also serves as a connecting trail between two poplular parking lots/trail heads used by day hikers.

Parking and Trail Access

A dedicated trail user parking area is available along the shoulder of US Route 9W northbound, approximately 2/10 of a mile south of the Iona Island access road.
