The Klara Sauer Trail (formerly known as the Beacon Riverside Trail) runs for 1 mile along the Hudson River on the west side of New York's village of Beacon. The trail occupies the same corridor as the live commuter rail, between the Beacon train station and Dennings Point.
The trail is natural surface and wheelchair accessible. Cyclists, walkers and anglers use the trail, which also offers nice bird-watching along the river. You can link to another mile or so of trail at Dennings Point on the southern end of the Klara Sauer Trail. There are plans to link the trail to others in the area.
Parking and Trail Access
There is no official parking for the Klara Sauer Trail; however, during weekends the parking lot at the train station is usable.
