About This Route

Starting in Germantown - the oldest town on the river - 300 years old (1711)  - where the Brits dumped off the Palatines.  Small, quaint, beautiful views and essentially upstate horse and orchard country.

Ramble on through and with a pit stop in Tivoli for a stretch or a great lunch @ the Mexican; japanese; Spanish Tapas or Vegan restauraunt.  All quality choices as they service the Bard College set.

Culture available as well at Clermont State Park - former home of Robert Livingston - one of the 5 drafters of the Declaration of Independance.  Great place for a view of the river and a picnic lunch if you decide to bring your own food. PS - there is a tour of the house - bring streetshoes.

Move on to Woods Road!! all the way back to Germantown.  Huge towering first growth oak and maples over 150 feet tall tower over your head and provide a nice cool backstretch ride even on the most opressing days in August. Oh! - I forgot to mention that all the powerlines have been buried here on state property - enhancing the views and giving you that pre-technology experience you rarely get these days.

Finish up back in Germantown @ Otto's market with some home made ice-cream late in the afternoon.

You'll love this ride if you just cut through it in 2 1/4 hours or make a liesurly 7 hour day of it stopping everywhere and having lunch in tivoli - or anyting inbetween.

Enjoy!!!

Point of Interest

WOODS ROAD Now you're in the woods on a high quality paved road in the Clermont State Park. No power lines here as they have all been buried. It's nice and cool under the first growth gargantuan trees that tower over 150" over your head - even on the hottest days of summer - that's why they call it - Woods Road! AND - it's all Woods Road almost all the way back to your starting point in Germantown.
