Wallkill Valley Rail Trail... New York State Biking

Built along the Wallkill Valley Railroad corridor, the trail (a linear park) runs from Gardiner, through New Paltz, to Rosendale, NY. The scenic trail crosses the Wallkill River, passing through woods, fields, and farming areas. The 940-foot Rosendale Trestle is a notable feature - when built in 1872, it was the highest (150 feet above the Rondout River) span bridge in the U.S.
