A smooth, easy ride with lots of good scenery. Perfect ride before a dip in the ocean. A really nice day.

July, 2018 by gwaybob

This multi-use Trail is a classic, paved greenway in a suburban Region that offers outdoor recreation and health-related benefits.

EPCAL Alternative Transportation Path

It's paved!

July, 2018 by gopher_tl

They've just finished paving the trail and it's super. It's the same initial 5K of paved bike path as before, but now it continues down to River Rd and then to Grumman Blvd. You can turn north on Line Rd. to cross the site and complete the loop. 8.75 miles. The paved trail along Grumman Blvd. continues for a ways to the west beyond Line Rd., but then just stops. Perhaps they are planning to make a loop around the whole site? Or maybe they just had extra asphalt.

Hook Mountain/Nyack Beach Bikeway

Possibly the most scenic trail in the Tristate area!

July, 2018 by leonardo.gr

Pictures don’t do it justice. Get your mountain bike or cross country bike ready and hit this trail! First section of the trail is a bit busy with pedestrians, but it becomes nice and clear once you start entering the woods further north.

Bronx River Greenway

July, 2018 by tbryant221

The trail started off great, but starlight park entry is closed and the detour is pretty far out of the way. We rode from manhattan to Bronx on bikes so we decided not to finish the trail

Bethpage Bikeway trail

June, 2018 by lcdelong

Loved it!

Well kept, well marked bike path. Moderately traveled. All dogs I saw were on leashes. Cyclists, walkers, and runners were all very respectful of each other when passing.

I started in Bethpage State Park and went north towards Syosset. The terrain was mostly flat with a hill about 1 mile from the start (mile markers are on the pavement). It started out as mostly tree-lined and covered, but trees thinned out farther out. The path does cross major roadways, but these crossings are well marked.

Bayshore Trail (Henry Hudson Trail)

Newly paved and open the whole length.

Most of this trail from Aberdeen to Atlantic Highlands has been repaved. No more tree roots protruding on the path. Well kept!

South County Trailway

Bumpy But Family Friendly

June, 2018 by nmg114

My husband and I recently explored this trail on our road bikes with a 2-year old in a bike trailer.

Pros:

1) Plenty of shade and tree cover. Perfect for those scorching summer days!

2) Most (not all) people know how to stay to one side of the road, but if you give a friendly "On your left!" or "On your right!" they'll quickly move over for you.

3) Easy entry. We parked at Briarcliff Manor Public Library and felt completely safe leaving our car there. The entrance to the trail is in the parking lot, next to the library (big red building). Plus, there is a public bathroom in the tented area, as well as plenty of picnic tables.

4) Trail is well marked.

5) Most (not all) cyclists are respectful and know how to conduct themselves on two wheels.

Now, the cons:

1) Considerable amount of bumps from tree roots, cracks, potholes, dips, and corroded asphalt, which honestly seems like the norm when it comes to bike trails. I think it's just impossible to have a completely smooth surface when nature is so unpredictable. My butt was a bit sore and my kid said "ouch" a few times, but we had no problems getting through it on our road bikes. In fact, you'll see plenty of cyclists training on road bikes with no problems whatsoever.

2) Getting to the North County Trail seems impossible, at least from the Public Library. We discovered it would require riding ON the shoulder of the Saw Mill River Parkway. No way!

3) Bathrooms do not exist, so make sure to pee before you head out.

Tip: From the Library, we rode about 12 miles to Rivertowns Square Shopping Plaza in Dobbs Ferry to grab lunch at Chipotle. It's a quick 5 minute detour from the trail and you'll need to cross Saw Mill River Parkway, but there are traffic lights and crosswalks in this section. We also stopped at Menchie's Fro Yo which is in the same shopping plaza. There's also a Starbucks and Chop't if you're in need of a salad and caffeine.

Enjoy your ride!

Joseph B. Clarke Rail Trail

The trail is now complete!

Old Croton Aqueduct Trail

From Yonkers to Ossining

May, 2018 by mb.provenzano

The OCA trail offers a rich variety of surfaces and surroundings. I rode a commuter bike with 38mm slicks and did just fine, even through the muddy sections. I picked the trail up in Yonkers off the South County with a bit of street riding. This initial section runs through some rough spots in Yonkers and includes some on-street sections. After reaching the northern neighborhoods of Yonkers, it all starts to feel European with back-to-back posh villages, mansions, and views of the Hudson. There are even some interesting stone ruins, not to mention the Lyndhurst Mansion grounds.

The trail comes and goes a bit further north and you'll find yourself on the road more than you may like, but there are some deeply wooded sections and a fun climb to a bridge over Phelps Way. There is an aqueduct museum along the way and many clear signs of former aqueduct works.

I highly recommend this trail and shall return to it many times.
