A great place to relax by avoiding traffic and viewing the beautiful scenery. Each area has its own uniqueness. Go as often as you can.

great family ride, especially for NYC recreational family bikes. The path is smooth, last stop on the Harlem Valley Metro North Train. About 45 or so to Millerton. Once there, there are 3 or 4 antique shops and two restaurants that are very good.

You didnt mention when you were coming, but there is a bicycle rental at the Copake Falls entrance. It is off of Route 22. You can then bike north to Hillsdale or south to Millerton and beyound.
