Thompson Park Trails

Moderately Sized Park

Good for a light ride but better suited for runners and walkers. Excellent spot for children learning to bike.

William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail

One of the best trails on the Empire State Trail system

April, 2024 by robert.richter89

I rode the entirety of the Steinhaus Trail starting at Hopewell Junction and riding over the Walkway over the Hudson. On a very windy early April Sunday the trail was lightly used and everyone was very polite and practiced great trail etiquette including very attentive drivers at road intersections.

The trail itself is fairly wide, is well marked with mile markers counting up or down from Hopewell Junction depending on which way you are going and is in immaculate shape. I don't even recall a single bump, pothole or crack on the asphalt. The scenery is a mix of light residential, some commercial, a nice lake near Hopewell Junction and a good amount of tree cover.

I appreciate how easy it was to connect to the Hudson Valley Rail Trail via the Walkway over the Hudson which added to my ride.

John Kieran Nature Trail

wrong picture! Unpaved nature trail through urban forest

March, 2024 by vbergerg_tl

Perfectly nice for what and where it is. We walk it often and kids experience it as an exploration. But FYI the picture here has nothing to do with either this trail or Van Cortlandt Park. The picture is of the building and small water park in Tibbett’s Brook Park a couple of miles north.

Loantaka Brook Reservation Trail

Nice but icy

February, 2024 by hrowan1029

We went to this trail, beginning right next to Seaton Hackney Stable, because we knew it had a paved path and we had a lot of snow. We didn't know the trail would be covered with ice and snow and after a very short walk we decided it would be wise to turn around before one of us fell. We intent to go back when the weather gets warmer because it's a beautiful park and trail.

Old Erie Path

Hidden Gem - caution in Sparkill

February, 2024 by jeffrey.r.schmoyer

Old Erie is a unique and lovely gravel path distinct from the Clarke and Esposito paved trails. Easy to miss but very worthwhile IF you have the right bike. Somewhat chunky gravel and a few ruts so recommend at least 38mm tires. In exchange for bumps you get forest, nice elevation changes, beautiful views of the river, and a direct path connect to both downtown Nyack (shops, eats) and the new Mario Cuomo bridge path. But VERY important: the start of trail in Sparkill is a very dangerous 5-way intersection with blind spots... DISMOUNT here, wait, listen, walk it across.

December, 2023 by kzhang20000

During the summer, there are more than 2 stops along the way you can buy drinks and food.

27 mile total. On my way back, I was riding against the wind, so tired......
