Nyack Beach/Upper Nyack/Piermont

nyack beach

Decided on another route. Remembered that the path along the Hudson was connected to Rockland Lake, and just happened to pass the road that takes you to the back side of this trail (and some free parking... $6.00 is atrocious). If you do try to find this place, keep in mind to back into some of the parking spots, it's tight and gets cramped on the weekends. Or you'll be like me, and have to back out to the firehouse.

The path is mostly packed dirt, with some paved areas. One large hill from the Rockland Lake side, and another large hill on the Upper Nyack side. Watch out for the people on foot, and make sure to let them know you're passing them... otherwise you will get bitched out (mind you I did say that I was passing on their left... can't help it if they're deaf).

The routes in Upper Nyack (5&9) take you past some beautiful houses. The route is on a pretty busy residential road, which wasn't too bad. I'm not sure if I would try this route again during the week, but who knows. I went down through downtown Nyack, and stopped in Piermont for lunch. Stop in at the Community Market for their BLT & G- BLT with guacamole sandwiched between three corn tortillas.

Ended up biking 20 miles, but it felt like a lot more. My butt is aching, and I may have to look into a pair of those padded bike shorts.
