  Briarcliff - Peekskill Trailway

The Briarcliff-Peekskill Trailway is a 12-mile linear park that runs from Ossining (Route 9A and Ryder Road) north to the Westchester County's Blue Mountain Reservation in Peekskill. The trail is built on land originally acquired in 1929 by the Westchester Parkway Commission for the construction of the Briarcliff Peekskill Parkway.

Construction of the parkway, however, was confined to an area between Route 117 in Pleasantville and the New York State National Guard Armory in Ossining. In 1977, the remaining right-of-way was re-designated a trailway. The trailway affords walkers many beautiful vistas along the way, including views of water cascading over the magnificent stone spillway at the county's Croton Gorge Park and a view of the Hudson River from the 560-foot high Spitzenberg Mountain at Blue Mountain Reservation.

The Briarcliff-Peekskill Trailway is one element of the county's extensive trail system that also includes the North County Trailway, South County Trailway and the Bronx River Pathway.
