Cross Island Parkway Trail

Newly paved trail is now open from the marina to Northern Blvd. This is a great ride especially during the week when it is not so crowded. As another reviewer stated one can extend their ride into nearby Fort Totten.

Bronx River Greenway

Short version starting in Bronxville to Kensico Dam (24mi RT)

September, 2018 by jonng911

No meter parking along Kimball Ave before Palmer Rd.
To avoid getting lost trying to connect to the bike path after passing the Scarsdales Train Station: exit at the station go north on East Pkwy; Rt on Crane Rd; Lf on Fox Meadows Rd (after Fenimore Rd) it changes to Walworth Ave and Lf on Greenacres Ave. The 2nd entrance to the trail is about 1/5 mile on the right.
There are restrooms when you reach the Kensico Dam.

Old Erie Path

Gravelly with Spectacular Views

September, 2018 by lughnerson

Sunday, August 26, 2018, temperature 88F, mixed sun & clouds, moderate humidity.

This one review for 3 connected trails: Old Erie, Raymond Esposito, and Joseph B. Clark, where I started at the north end in Blauvelt.

This is a wonderful asphalt community trail that is a very gentle slope down from the northern village of Blauvelt. Nice scenery with a mix of open skies and shade. Near the southern end there is a public park with a side connection to the contiguous Raymond Esposito and Old Erie trails, that are unpaved and slope gently down to end at a park in Nyack. The trail looks down over streets and homes in Piermont and Nyack with occasional summer views of the Hudson River. You ride through a shady forest on a gravel road that becomes a dirt path for a short distance before getting bigger and gravelly again. It's fun.

On a warm Sunday afternoon at the end of the trail I decided to take the streets back through Nyack to Piermont and was not disappointed. Nyack along the Hudson River is lined with Victorian and old sea captain-like homes. It's a bike route so there other bikers not doing the trails and really not too much traffic, so I felt safe. The street leads to Piermont, a beautiful little tree-lined village right on the Hudson river offering piers, marinas, restaurants, coffee shops and specialty stores. It really is spectacular. Then the streets lead from a small park over a creek back to the other little park where you meet the trail again. Without signs or knowledge I just followed my instincts and and found my way. Worth a return visit. 16+ miles round trip.

South County Trailway

VCP to Woodlands Lake - Recommended

September, 2018 by dlevinson5

I biked from VCP to Woodlands Lake (round trip) which is about 21 miles and highly recommend this trail. Overall the trail is well maintained with the exception of occasional bumps on the paved portions. The dirt trail in VCP has a few bumpy sections from tree roots and rail ties. I’m a casual biker and would say anyone with basic biking abilities can do this portion of the rail trail. Bring two bottles of water and throw some snacks in a backpack. I’m going to try going from VCP to Elmsford on my next.

Columbia Trail

The Snow White trail

September, 2018 by davebg

I call this the Snow White trail because it puts me to sleep. No incline, no gear shifts, no fun. It’s mostly covered by canopy so if you’re there in the summer you’d be better off loading up on bug spray rather than sunscreen.

Columbia Trail

Great for runners, cyclists, equestrians, or a casual family walk.

August, 2018 by jtbruen12

Someone stated this trail is inclined in both directions- this is untrue. It’s generally level and the elevation difference is minimal from end to end. Many places to park and hike in either direction as well as trailhead parking.
Busy on weekends but nice to see people out loving the trail. The trail is generally 6+ feet wide. You can connect to Patriots Path, Gillette Trail, and others from this very popular trail.

Hudson River Greenway

ALERT: Lengthy construction will disrupt Greenway access from GW Bridge north

August, 2018 by catharusguttatus

Unfortunately, a small bridge over the Amtrak tracks north of the GWB will disrupt access to the Greenway to the north of that point.

So far, there don't appear to be any good other options, short of riding in the streets, to safely access the Greenway. I hope that the City will realize this is a busy bike commuting route, and come up with some decent and safe detour routes!

Details are here:

Old Putnam Trail

WHY ISNT THIS PAVED

August, 2018 by jmm5149

Terrible mud and dirt year round. Ecological arguments will never stop people from using this trail and attempting to get to the Putnam trailway with all kinds of wheeled vehicles. It will continue its descent into a gross, barely navigable path until this is paved. The wetlands are hundreds of yards away. Holy smokes Bronx. Do you really want to waste your one opportunity to be kind of cool?
