Fun easy biking trail

My son and I completed the hike, but there were no marked trails at any point. The first half of the hike were a mix of roads and dirt paths that skirted land protected by the DEP. You couldn't reach the lake because it was all marked "No Trespassing". The second half was flat-out dangerous, because you had to walk along Route 22. This is a road with almost no shoulder, where it's marked 50 MPH but people drive 65. It's notable to say you hiked all the way around the lake, but for me it wasn't worth it.

Fine trail for beginners road biking. Not really an off road path.

It's a very nice place to be, not difficult at all unless you take the stairs. If you're looking for a workout, those steep stairs will whip you right into shape for sure. Otherwise, not a difficult trail by any stretch of the imagination. It's not even a trail really, everything is well and evenly paved. The view of the river to the side and the opposite view of the park and surrounding area from the top of the dam is fantastic.

As the name implies, it's a pathway, not a trail... 95% of it is paved, so wear sneakers or even sandals, not hiking boots, as I regrettably did.

According to Google Maps and the GPS from AllTrails, it's only about 12 miles, not the 16 miles stated other places. It took me about 3.5 hours to walk.

It's a very suburban, easy walk. No incline. Flat, paved surface. Family oriented. Lot's of children on bikes. Somewhat crowded on weekends, though I don't know about week days. Closes at dusk.

The nice thing about the pathway is that it runs along the Bronx River, which is more of a stream. Easy going, pleasant scenery, makes for a nice walk or bike ride. Reminded me of an extended trip through Central Park.

I walked from south (Bronxville) to north (Valhalla). So the the highlight of the trip is finishing at the Kensico Reservoir and Dam. It's really beautiful.

I give it two stars because the path runs between the Bronx River Parkway, which is a highway, and the Metro North Railway. So there is no escape from civilization, no real peace and quite. You have to pass through a couple parking lots, street intersections, etc...

Worse part is that there is a break half way though. Basically from Scarsdale to Hartsdale, about a mile along side a road with no sidewalk.

This is not so much a destination pathway. It's more of a quick bit of recreation for locals.
