Short and longer walks around Rockland County

New and even longer....

Rockland now has another walking destination – the brand new bicycle and pedestrian path across the Mario M. Cuomo/Tappan Zee Bridge. The path opened for public use June 15, 2020.  The 12-foot-wide path is shared by pedestrians and bicycles and features six scenic overlooks along the 3.6 mile crossing.  Along the path are 10 public art pieces. The Thruway Authority partnered with ArtsWestchester and the Arts Council of Rockland to commission the public art pieces that includes five sculptures (some utilizing salvaged steel from the old Tappan Zee Bridge), a 4,000 square foot mural, and custom designed bike racks. There are “landings” on both the Rockland and Westchester ends with rest rooms, food trucks and other vendors, and connections to the Hudsonlink bus service that can shuttle you back to where you started.

Here's a preview of the walk:
