2004 Reports on Westchester County Trailways
|Ken, May 2004:
Paving is now complete from Eastview Park & Ride south to Warehouse Lane in Elmsford.
On a beautiful cool day over Memorial Day weekend, I rolled on all of North County Trailway (from the northern County boundary at Baldwin Place to Eastview and Warehouse Lane) and on all of South County Trailway (from Eastview and Elmsford to Barney St in northern Yonkers). I had to roll on the public streets for a mile to cover the gap between Warehouse Lane and Rt 119 - Tarrytown Rd in Elmsford (see reports on connecting streets).
The whole way I was on rollerskis (like inline skates but with cross-country ski boots). Sharon dropped me off at the north in Putnam county (see Reports), and drove down and parked near Hearst St in Yonkers by the south end of the Trailways.
Most of the pavement on the Trailways was in good condition, though of course there were a few ridges and ruts. Surprisingly few rocks and tree branches lying on the Trailways.
Along the way I made two nice food stops at Yorktown Heights and Elmsford. One thing nice about the Trailways are the number of possible food stops nearby. Some of the ones I noticed, north to south:
It was fun.
