South County Trailway

Badly needs maintenance

April, 2021 by jdubail

April 2021: Hadn't been on the trail a couple of years, hoped they had caught up on maintenance. No such luck. Long stretches full of cracks, bumps, sunken spots and washboarding. It was a teeth-rattling experience. Not recommended, esp. for road bikes.

Maybrook Trailway

Rode the Maybrook trail for the first time this morning starting in Brewster, going north. Lots of gradual uphill going north which made the return trip easier. Beautiful natural scenery.

Great part of the Empire State Trail system!

April, 2021 by steve.schwinn

Road this entire trail this past week as an out-and-back from Brewster. It's in perfect condition with limited road crossings.
As previous comments noted it's not exactly flat. Signage states you cross the Appalachian Mountains (known as the Taconics in this area)!
In Brewster I parked in Markel Memorial Park which is closer to the southern end than Southeast Town Park. It has a short road hop to an on-ramp to the Trailway.
If you want to take the older section to Connecticut the new Trailway dead ends at Peaceable Hill Rd with steps down to the road. There is an unmarked road section leading to another flight of steps on East Main Street (bypassing an unusable trestle). Note that the trail ends about a mile south of the steps where the trail is being reconstructed (no signs of activity).

Windsor River Trail

This trail is nicely paved, but extremely short. Great for a short walk or bike trail for LITTLE children. But, definitely not a trail for older kids or family bike ride.

Great New Trail

March, 2021 by bohdan_tl

Just tried the trail for the first time doing the first 10 miles from Southeast Town Park. In those 10 miles there was one road crossing and you can still go further without one - I didn't go to the end yet. There is a long gradual grade of about 500' over 5.5 miles but really not bad. There are a few spots with a flat rock as a bench but no bathrooms at all and nothing much around as far as stores or such. My estimate is that trail will be mostly shady before noon but will be lots of sun in the afternoon.

Very scenic trail though residential and park like areas including a nice section through a swamp area - bring your bug repellant.

Awesome trail. I consider myself a novice rider and I found this trail very enjoyable. There was the perfect amount of challenging areas on the trail...would highly recommend this trail to all riders

No parking

The trail is nice but swampy in areas. There is no parking.

Very nice new trail, no services though

March, 2021 by kubluck

I biked from Brewster to Poughkeepsie on March 12, once it finally warmed up a bit. There were a few short slushy sections and a head wind, and the trail's surprisingly hilly, but I got to Hopewell Junction in about two hours. There are no services between Brewster and HJ, and the trail feels pretty remote, but there's lots of nice scenery.

Maybrook Trailway

Maybrook section links Putnam, Dutchess,Ulster Cos.

March, 2021 by tipboger

Now that most of the snow has melted I ventured East from Greenhaven up Depot Hill by bike. Quite a long uphill stretch. When I got near the top the cooler temperatures and shade kept the trail snow covered. After pushing my bike uphill for a stretch it wasn’t clearing. My goal was to get to Whaley Lake but will have to return when Spring temperatures permit. No regrets fabulous paved trail. It would be a considerable uphill walk from Greenhaven as there is no trail head parking until you reach the summit. Mostly wooded with interesting rock cuts along this section. A few intersecting country roads homes and bucolic old farms, stone walls typical to the area. Well worth returning.

Smooth, easy family trail

January, 2021 by michael.parker.md

This was our first family trail with kids that were new to bicycling. Everyone enjoyed the consistent pace of the trail. Not too crowded, but haven't tried middle of summer yet. Takes about 30 minutes to go from one end to the other and back.

Jones Point Path

Newly paved and highly recommended

January, 2021 by andrewkryger

This newly paved trail and great for a walk or ride. Enter either side. Great views and some nice rolling hills. Hopefully the trees along the sides will stay upright and not fall and ruin the new fences and pavement.

Maybrook Trailway

AWESOME TRAIL - completely open

January, 2021 by gjzambetti_tl

This trail is a gem. Fully open now from Tonetta Lake in Brewster to Hopewell Junction. Be aware that there are at least 2 additional parking areas/access points where the trail crosses RT 292 in Holmes (Whalay Lake - Holmes Community Center) and where it crosses Old Rt 55. The trail is in great condition, has some great lake and marsh views throughout and crosses the Appalachian Trail at one point.
