South road is 20.6 miles out and back, ends at Millerton due to construction. There is a detour on Route 22N to the northern section to complete the trail around Copake at the Massachusetts border in Columbia County which I've done before by itself. Total mileage is closer to 50 miles round trip from Wassaic according to my Garmin. Nice workout and scenery but a bit too flat for me. Bad cell coverage and dropouts in recording the whole trail on my old iPhone (south and north parts). Total trail not represented on alltrails.com, this section here is only the northern part. You can find the whole trail on other websites. Well maintained. One thing I did like about this trail is that you can pick up speed and sustain it for a while since there are not that many people on the path and there are long straight sections to see safely in front of you.

Very quiet, road biking trail. I think it was a rail track that was paved, and they are continuing expansion of the trail. It was very flat, lots of trees that provided shade, and lots of other bikers/joggers/roller-bladers. The scenery was absolutely beautiful too. I really enjoyed it, this site says it's 11 miles, but I traced it on google maps and it turned out to be 18 miles, the difference may be due to the expansion. But over-all, a great ride!
