New Paltz area


Skate Hudson Valley

Routes + Places

The problem with the New Paltz area for road skating is lots of traffic on the north-south roads.  So it's not so easy to make up a nice loop route.  Instead we'll talk about individual roads.

Village of New Paltz

We've heard that some people skate north from New Paltz village on some sections of Huguenot St and Old Kingston Rd, and on Plains Rd south from New Paltz village, but we haven't tried either in a long time.

Northeast of New Paltz

One area with some quieter roads is to the northeast of New Paltz -- north of Rt 299 and east of the Thruway.  For more detail see
