Now open - the bridge high above Rosendale and additional trail north of there. Let's explore!!
We'll go to New Paltz and ride the northern section of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail, which has some views of Shawangunk cliffs, crosses the Wallkill River, and crosses a bridge high above Rosendale.
The trail is not paved, the surface being packed cinders. Either a hybrid or mountain bike will be fine. Round trip distance is about 16 miles. If this distance seems too much for you, you can turn around at any point to shorten the ride.
What to bring: water, lunch/snacks, sunscreen
Suggested donation: $2 to help offset the cost of the subscription that meetup charges to organizers.
Ignore the map above and its GPS coordinates - they are not correct.
