One of my favorite rides of LI. Good speeds/pace going east. Return headwind can be tough.

Flat, great breeze and plenty of sun. Beautiful views heading down to Jones Beach then connect to Ocean Pkwy. Easily put in 20-30 miles round trip.

Putnam Trailway

meh

June, 2024 by vbergerg_tl

Finally reached it from the North County trail way and was both surprised and disappointed. Some nice spots but mostly odd hills and backend of towns. Expected it to be much nicer. Now I’m trying to figure out the road connections in Brewster to get to the better reviewed Maybrook.

Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail

Loop from Frenchtown, NJ to New Hope, PA and back

May, 2024 by lmktlm64

Rode the approx. 33 mile loop the day after Memorial Day. We've had so much rain that the usual hard pack was a bit soft, especially on the PA return side. From Frenchtown to Lambertville, it is 90+ percent shade and is very smooth and easy until you get close to Lambertville. Had a nice lunch in New Hope at Triumph Brewery. Coming north back to Frenchtown posed some obstacles as we were forced off the tow path and had to ride the very narrow River Road twice because of small bridge repairs being done. Being a midweek day, the traffic wasn't so bad but I wouldn't try this on a weekend. The tow path side isn't as smooth and is much more open to the sun than the Jersey side and can be narrow and in various states of condition and surface material. Still was a beautiful day to be out and would do again. Short time on country road to get back to the Frenchtown bridge. Lots of parking in Frenchtown in the next to the bridge.

Pequonnock River Trail

Bring your phone with GPS

May, 2024 by sboaters_tl

My wife and I did this trail on touring bikes, starting at Glenwood Park in Bridgeport, and proceeded northward. Easy to follow until Twin Brooks Park where the trail joins the park trails but there is no signage from here northward. Nice surface but we had to stop NUMEROUS times to look at our GPS to determine our location and which trail/path to take. Then finding the Tait Road starting point for the next section was a challenge. Either print out the Trail Description and have a map, and/or have your phone handy as there are very few, if any, signs showing where the trail goes. A nice series of trails once you find them but don't expect ANY directional advice.

North Shore Rail Trail

Relaxed ride for family

Old Putnam Trail

Short ride through Van Cortlandt Park.

May, 2024 by steve.schwinn

Road this fully paved trail, known as the Putnam Greenway in Van Cortlandt Park, in connection with the South County Trailway as an out-and-back starting from the Tarrytown Lakes Park Parking Lot on Neperan Road (1 mile connector trail to the junction of the North and South County Trailways). About a 35 mile round-trip. Trail is in very good shape but a bit narrow considering it’s busy with runners and walkers, especially on weekends. Be sure to check out the very impressive Grand Central Stones along the way.
Part of the Empire State Trail.

South County Trailway

Great trail with seamless trail connections at both ends!

May, 2024 by steve.schwinn

Road this fully paved trail in connection with the Old Putnam Trail (also known as the Putnam Greenway) as an out-and-back from the Tarrytown Lakes Park Parking Lot on Neperan Road (1 mile connector trail to the junction of the North and South County Trails) to the south end of Van Cortlandt Park. About a 35 mile round-trip. Trail is in very good shape with only a few root heaves. Note that the Old Putnam Trail is significantly narrower and busy with runners and walkers, especially on weekends.

Old Croton Aqueduct Trail

great view the whole time

May, 2024 by smashwin111

This and the Erie Path on the other side of the river are relatively flat, and I rode both easily on a hybrid. The view on either side of the river is really nice the whole time, because your are just elevated enough to see the river clearly the whole time. Also Tarrytown is a nice stop. I did this in two legs - Yonkers to Tarrytown, and Tarrytown to Croton Reservoir. The reservoir at the end is a nice destination.

Great Views

May, 2024 by jorgeosoria

I completed 26 miles this morning with beautiful views of the jersey shore..Trail is paved and can be completed on a road bike. Trail splits twice and it is quite confusing as to where the trail picks up again. Make sure you have you phone for map details or plan ahead. Other than that a nice trail.

Right along a busy 6 lane road where people seem to race between stoplights and show off their sub par modified exhaust systems. Bring your earplugs.
