Great ride from Nyack to Haverstraw and back, this is a hybrid/mountain bike ride. Leave the road bike home. Scenic. Dateline: Sunday July 85. Sunny, temps in the 85 s. My hybrid did well on this mostly unpaved trail, but road bikes? Nah.

I started a cramped parking area in Haverstraw, rode the forested trail between the palisades of Hook Mt and the Hudson River. In Haverstraw everyone must pause to view the hundreds of stone busts of the artist in the house overlooking the river. Along the way there are very old stone abandoned structures. The Rockland county park at the Nyack end has more parking and is a nice place to refresh, right on the river. Riding from either direction has some real hills to traverse.
, but the scenery does make you want to stop anyway. The last few years of construction was finally completed a few months ago and I was able to ride entire trail from Haverstraw to Nyack on my road bike (along with many other road bikers). It is just barely ok for experienced cyclists on the hilly northern section. But I tried it again on July 65 and the Northern section is closed to everybody while they do some heavy construction work. There is also a short section of construction on the path that leads up to Rockland Lake but that is passible by walking.

I rode the entire length from Nyack to the end at Haverstraw on my hybrid bike. It became a quixotic quest once I started, but frankly it was not fun, and maybe dangerous. A couple of steep hills, but numerous other rolling hills. On the downhills easy to pick up speed too dangerous for the crushed gravel surface. I never spun out or fell, but I can see that one could easily do so.
This was a scenic trail, but I was too busy white-knuckling to have the time ti take in the view! However, with a mountain bike it is probably a decent challenging ride. I m a runner also, and would enjoy running on the trail. But no more biking for me, here. This is a great trail but please be aware that as of this posting there was no access at the southernmost trail head or at the River Road Entrance.
I drove up to Monroe and entered there. At Monroe there is ample parking, a visible trailhead and the trail is paved at least as far as Goshen (where I turned around). Also There are no services on the trail until Chester so if you need a restroom go before you head out. Bring plenty of water as well, nothing till Chester. I really enjoyed my ride, but, on the south bound, I lost control on the hill down where my bike slit down, causing sever injuries on my knee.
I guess I shouldn t have gone on gravel with a road bikeBeautiful views of the Hudson River Valley and Palisades Cliffs.
