One of my bf and my favorite go to trails. It has a nice about of shade although there are some exposed areas. The wooded areas are gorgeous and you go through some cute towns. Love any kind of ruins you come across and then the mansion/estate is gorgeous and worth exploring. The trail is pretty populated but people do understand proper etiquette. No restrooms and too populated to use the trail unless you go into towns (thanks public libraries!). Primarily hard packed dirt and only a little pavement. Nice path!

Nice, flat trail with lots to see along the way. Watch out for poison ivy along the side.

Definetely do not start where the app tells you, start in Mercy College and park your car near by and you need a mountain bike

beautiful views, wildlife, sections are very rocky / exposed tree roots, best for mountain bikes or hiking.

I've only done half the trail because there are sections that are in a town and a short double yellow line highway. 90% of the trail is great, but there are sections around mile 15 that are extremely steep even to walk with your mountain bike. However, it does have great woods and scenery along the 90% part of it.

Great & easy trail perfect for small dogs. Pretty awesome view of the dam. Would love to return to mountain bike. Which reminds me to warn hikers that some parts of the trail you share with cyclists (some are polite and some will run you down if you don’t get out of the way).

Nice dirt trail, well marked, with very few inclines. My wife and I only biked from Glenwood to Tarrytown, but I am already planning to come back to do the whole length of the trail. Yes, you do go past a lot of back yards, but you also get to ride through a lot of historic river towns along the way.

NOT what it looks like. you're in people's backyard most of the time. then it leads you out onto trafficked roads for the last two miles. the pictures are misleading and the dam is not where the trails end. other than that what's in actual trails are pretty nice. but if you're looking for the dam it's 4 miles after the end

Great views Excellent trails Easy

I started this same trail a little earlier from the Yonkers entry point where I used to live and stopped in the Sleep Hollow area. When I come back to visit I will complete the hike. Still a great hike for beginners that want some quiet, yet invigorating time in nature while still being close to the 'everyday' world. You will see nice views of the Hudson River and plenty of scenic shots throughout the trail.

Beautiful water fall/dam worth seeing . Park like any other state park. Loud music, BBQ nothing special.
