Metro North to the start at Beacon and to return from Poughkeepsie, both on the Hudson Line.
Hills in apple country. A great ride in apple blossom or harvest time.
A triple chainring is advised.
Combine this ride with Poughkeepsie to Pawling(Brewster) for an interesting, longer Hudson Valley ride of 48(63)miles.
Original cue sheets end in Poughkeepsie via the Mid Hudson Bridge. RWGPS and its cue sheet now routed over the High Bridge, a more esthetic alternative.
