Orange Heritage Trailway Professional Reviews and Guides

"Chartered in 1832, the Erie Railroad was one of the earlier railroads in the country. It originated at Piermont on the Hudson River, close to the spot where the present-day Tappan Zee Bridge lands on the west shore. The section to Goshen was finished by late summer 1841, and the segment to Middletown opened two years after that. The goal of the Erie was to reach Dunkirk on Lake Erie. Surface: Asphalt."

"In many ways, residents of Orange County have the best of both worlds. On one hand, they bask in beautiful rural surroundings of farms, pastures, and small towns. On the other, they enjoy easy access to New York City, which lies a scant 40 miles down the Hudson River. You are about to tour some of the county's loveliest lakes, farms, and meadows. Along the way you can choose to visit two villages that are unlike any others in the tristate region. Things to See: Round Lake, Walton Lake, Sugar Loaf Village, Museum Village."

This trail was wonderful. There is about a 2% grade going to Monroe from Goshen but not exerting at all. The ride back to Goshen was mostly the 2% downhill so it was fast and easy. The trail is in excellent shape with lots of views, shade and sun. There are clear mile markers and lots of friendly people on the trail. The biggest treat of all was in Chester at the half way mark. In this adorable town, the ice cream store was delicious and a welcome treat on the way back. I would recommend the Panda Paws...yummy. The parking at the trail head was safe, easy to find and accommodating.
