Final section of Westchester’s South County Trailway opens


Ceremonial ribbon cutting

GREENBURGH – The final segment of the South County Trailway in Westchester County was opened this week. The section along with the North County Trailway spans a total of 37 miles from the Putnam county line to the New York City border.

In June 2016, the county board of legislators approved a $2.75 million bond act for the project to close the final gap in the South County Trailway in Elmsford, as well as a 25-year lease with the state Department of Transportation to construct and operate a portion of the trailway on state property along the Saw Mill River.

The South and North County Trailways meet in Eastview on the border between Greenburgh and Mount Pleasant.

Together they allow bicyclists and pedestrians to travel mostly along the right-of-way lands of the former Putnam Division of the New York Central Railroad from Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx to the Putnam County border between Somers and Carmel.
