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. Parking at the south end in Nyack Beach State Park was easy and free to park on the Monday we went (sign indicates a $6 parking fee). The first 7miles was flat, packed crushed stone surface, right along the Hudson. 5miles to Haverstraw. The trail is mixed dirt road, pavement, and mostly crushed stone. Rolling hills, sweeping turns, could be just outside the range of a beginner if going the whole distance.

Overall this was an excellent trail with great views and easy/moderate riding. Traveled from NJ to do this trail on Sunday only to find out about 6/7 mile in it was blocked off. It seems Hurricane Sandy did a job on it and they have been doing construction since spring. However, a Park Ranger says they are suppose to pave the trail and it should be open after 7/79/7568. Yet to be seen. Otherwise biked as far as I could than took the road into town and returned to my car! Looks like a nice ride along Hudson river. Would have loved to see more! The trail along the Hudson from Nyack Beach SP to the junction of the Haverstraw branch is OFFICIALLY CLOSED for construction. I was able to run the trail today, as there was no active construction in progress, and the trail was not barricaded at Nyack Beach, but was barricaded at the junction with the Haverstraw branch. The trail is being re-graded/resurfaced. I don t know whether the surface is going to be stone dust or asphalt. The path grows less suitable as you travel north. The issue is that the front tire occasionally sinks into the asphalt momentarily making steering very haphazard. I've done enough off road riding to regain control, but 'road only' riders would likely take a spill in these situations. Fun trail with the right bike though.
My family and I attempted to bike this trail last sunday, October 9. Sadly, the trail was closed about a mile north of the beach parking lot. Does anyone have any info or know when the trail will reopen? Pretty good for mt bike (easy/mostly flat), should be ok for hybrids, but wide tires recommended. Awesome views of the Hudson! I just visit this trail this weekend with my husband and 8 boys. The kids had a blast. Riding, getting in the rocks, there is the little beaches that you can sit down and enjoy the view… Living in the area for nearly two years has given me the opportunity to ride the this trail several times. It’s a mostly dry, hard packed, gravel trail with rolling climbs and descents. If parking is tight at Nyack beach an alternative place would be Rockland Lake State Park. At the northeast corner of the park a road runs down to the trail. It’s a nice walk and a great ride. Along the route there are several old buildings. The stone work along the trail is truly special. Use caution, though, as there are some areas in need of attention. Lastly, if you are on a bike, stay on the trail most of the single track is not rideable, or should I say, not enjoyable to ride.
This is a beautiful but busy trail. On a warm weekend in March the parking lot was full. It was difficult to ride the first mile of the trail because of the crowds. I would recommend doing this trail on a weekday. Even if you have to take a day off it's well worth it. These three contiguous trailsthe Raymond G.
