What a lovely place to walk, run, ride a bike, or sit on a bench alone or with others. A great idea to reclaim the rails and make them accessible for the public.

Start in Amenia and ride north - finishing in Millerton. It is about 8 miles. Have a delicious lunch at Oakhurst Diner and then ride back. About an hour each way. Mostly flat, wide enough for bikes to pass or ride side by side. Beautiful...More
