I've taken my bicycle on the Dutchess County Rail Trail, the Orange County Heritage Trail and the Sussex County Branch Trail. But I'm always looking for a new route and new sights.
So on Saturday morning, I drove down to the Ross Dock Picnic Area in Fort Lee, New Jersey, right near the George Washington Bridge. I still didn't find a great trail. Cyclists on Henry Hudson Road share it with motorists. And bicycles aren't allowed on many of the other trails.
So I hopped back into the car and drove up the Palisades Parkway. I pulled over at a few of the lookouts near the river, but still nothing.
So I'm still looking for a new, great bicycle trail.

This is what it looks like directly beneath the George Washington Bridge.
The George Washington Bridge is a huge expanse, especially when you're just below it.
