Hit the trails: Go MTB in Putnam County

Our mountain bike guru, Eric, hit the trails this week and wants all of us to do the same…

60 degrees
A light breeze
Long sight lines through the leafless trees
I love mountain biking…

Cranberry Mountain - Putnam County NY 2011

Hit the trails!

… and not only did he provide poetry. He provided directions to the route.

Cranberry Mountain, Putnam County, NY

Getting there, by car – Map: I-684N > Rt22N > make a right on Birch Hill Rd (at the ski area) take this to the top and make a right at Stagecoach Rd, about a mile up on the right is the parking lot.

Getting there, by train – Metro North – Harlem Line – to Patterson, NY.  When you get off the train take the street that goes over the tracks, Rt 311, to the corner, Rt 22, and go right.  The first left is Birch Hill Rd then follow directions above.  This is a 2 mile climb by foot or bike…but worth it.
