Summary:
This is part of the "Long Path" which in theory goes to Albany, although from here it goes to the NJ/NY border then to 9W then to Tallman State Park and on. There is also another path down by the shore which goes ~ 13 miles.

Some people do bike in the more Northern parts, but there really is a lot of pedestrian traffic and joggers. It is a great hike though, but there are better places to bike.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Yonkers, New Place in NYC, Pleasantville, Saxon Woods

Summary:
Once you get past the "pickle park" section, as is it referred by local law enforcement, the trail becomes devoid of "hikers" and the like. There is a "no bikes" sign at the trailhead, but I think that that only refers to pickle park. Once past this area, one is greeted with some fairly steep and fast sections. I had a lot of fun on this trail and I believe it leads to a series of other trails. I found some ticks on me. Gross.

Recommended Route:
I would walk through the first section, which is short and has a lot of pedestrian traffic at times. It pains me to know that cycling may be illegal on this trail, in light of what goes on there. And all of the locals know about it. Wanna ride? No. Wanna have relations out in public? OK.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There's a park near the hudson with rough asphalt roads where lots of people ride. Pretty hilly too.

Summary:
This is a strictly no-bike trail, though. And you encounter quite a few joggers/walkers on it. I think the classifications must have changed since the original review.

Reviewed by: C RISPOLI , from CLIFFSIDE PARK

Summary:
this trail starts off fairly flat but becomes pretty rugged after about a mile or so. there are several nasty short descents and climbs, so beginners beware! there is plenty potential for injury if you crank it hard. The trail runs parrallel to palisade inerstate parkway and at some points you can see and here cars, but after awhile the trail runs a little deeper so you can enjoy some seperation from the madness. For someone who lives near good trails elsewhere in NJ, I would not recomend this route, but if you are a local who just wants to get away, this is a great little trail that's accessible all week long, and provides a nice little degree of dificulty. I do not believe it is possible to get lost, as there is one trail to to follow. I give a 4 star rating only because of the unlikely oppurtunity it gives for us suburbanites to go ride offroad locally.

Recommended Route:
start at GWB (nj) side bike path. go to left side of the bridge and veer onto the trail after the first flight of stairs.

Yeah Sure, I'm fortunate to have found this trail!
