Last Updated: August 1, 2018
Length: Nyack Beach/River Trail; 1.6 miles
Haverstraw River Trail; 3.5 miles
Difficulty: Nyack Beach/River Trail; Easy. Mostly flat stone-dust trail.
Haverstraw River Trail; Moderate. Hilly, narrow and quite rocky. It runs along the cliffs and should only be ridden by experienced bicyclists riding bikes in good condition.
To Start from the Nyack Beach State Park parking lot; From I-287 take exit 11 to Route 9W and head left (North). Travel 1.4 miles and turn right on Old Mt Rd. Follow to N Broadway and turn left. Follow into Park. FEE to park.
The Nyack Beach/River Trail (Some sites refer to it as Beach Trail, while the map say River Trail) and Haverstraw River Trail travel alongside the Hudson River in Nyack Beach SP. A paved spur trail travels uphill to Rockland Lake SP Bike Path at the end of the Nyack Beach/River Trail. The Haverstraw River Trail then continues. For more information visit; NYACK BEACH STATE PARK .
Starting from Nyack Beach State Park parking lot; Restrooms located here. Nice views of the Tappan Zee Bridge. A wide stone-dust trail follows alongside the Hudson River below the steep ridge of Hook Mt SP. Picnic tables located along the trail. After 0.5 miles (painted on a rock) look up to spot the sheer cliffs. Come to a paved section of trail at 1.3 miles as you start a short assent. The trail levels off and you come to an intersection at 1.5 miles.
Note; Left brings you up to Landing Rd next to a stone house with slate roof (private residence). Here you can follow the road up to an intersection. Head right along Rockland Lake Rd until you come to Parking Field 2 on your left. Straight through the parking lot leads to the Rockland Lake SP Bike Path after 0.8 miles.
Note; Right the paved trail continues back down to the river as the Haverstraw River Trail. I haven't checked out this section.
