Summer is here, and it is time to toss that covid mask and shred weight. It is amazing to see so many people actively enjoying the Dutchess County Rail Trail. I set myself a goal this month is to say that I have ridden each section of the rail trail. So far, I completed 9 miles from Overocker Road to the Walkway over the Hudson located in Poughkeepsie, NY. Today, I rode 5 miles from the Hopewell Junction Depot to the overpass bridge on Rt. 376. Next, to complete in between Wappingers to Poughkeepsie. Here are some photos, as I stop for a water break and take time to enjoy the scenery along the way.
