Wow. Was very bumpy. A couple of trees were down. Started at Dingmans ferry. Went north. Lots of hills! Had to stop at Zimmermans Farm Road. It got too narrow from there. Exhausted!!

Barnegat Branch Trail

Bypass this section

July, 2024 by kulickk

I recommend taking Barnegat lake drive between Musket and South to avoid the section of the trail that is barely passable. The rest of the trail is really nice.

Henry Hudson Trail

I finally decided to check out HHT. I thought a Summer Saturday might be busy, but I was pleasantly surprised. I started at Highlands and headed west to Keyport. Very peaceful. Had a good ride and will definitely be back

Briarcliff-Peekskill Trailway

Briarcliff-Peekskill trail

July, 2024 by joseph.avdek

I entered the trail on Ryder Road in Ossining and ran to the Teatown preserve and back (approximately 6 miles).

The trail is overgrown and not well maintained. There are points that are severely sloped and there are rocks hidden in high grass. Along the trail there is a creak that has stagnant water. The high grass and water leads to a large amount of bugs. I found a tick on my leg after the run.

On the trail there are abrupt up-hills that are not maintained or easy to traverse without coming to a slow walk due to rocks and roots. The scenery is beautiful but the trail needs a lot of love and care.
