Samuel G. Fisher Mount Ivy Environmental Park Reviews

BEEN ON IT NUMEROUS TIMES.NICE FLAT SURFACE HOWEVER I'VE BEEN RIDING MY MT BIKE ON IT AND NEVER BEEN BOTHERED.

"This little trail is actually only 1 1/4 miles long. The northern end is just beyond the fence of the Mt Ivy Diner parking lot. After passing through a large open area, do not follow the grassy road at the left side of the clearing. The trail is the cinder path that exits the middle area of the clearing. The trail proceeds via a fill through a wetland area, never out of earshot of the Palisades Parkway traffic. The trail beyond Station Rd (at the American Legion Post) is overgrown and used as a drainage ditch to Pomona Rd. Parking is available at both ends. Bicycles are not permitted, but hiking, cross country skiing and horseback riding are allowed.

Rates 6 put of 10!

"This is a short and very pretty hiking/walking trail hidden right in the heart of Rockland County.

It's flat, straight, and rises above nearby wetlands. Some evidence of its former use as a railroad right-of-way still exists in the form of railroad ties and spikes.

Be prepared for flying insects in warm and damp weather.

Parking is available on either end; on the Mt. Ivy side there is a parking lot of a diner that can be used.

Note: NO BICYCLES ARE PERMITTED ON THIS TRAIL.

Railroad buffs will enjoy this short walk in the woods."
