Rode up to the current end of the Putnam County extension of the North County Trail.
They have un-officially extended it another 1.2 miles beyond Old Mine Rd. to as far as Putnam Ave. along Rt 6. Note that this is the western end of Putnam Ave, opposite Drewville Rd.
They still have construction chain link fences up but open and all the path is paved, as well as the Rt6 bridge being open. Possibly they still have to paint the bridge so maybe expect an official ribbon cutting a month before election day or so.
The current end at Putnam Ave. is 1 mile west of the Brewster Metro North station. Pretty much up the hill and watch for the trail on the right.
I am thinking they might extend as far as another 1/2 mile to the eastern end of Putnam Ave., but that's about as far as they can get, as the rail right-of-way east of that is still in use by Metro North and there is no other road crossing.
It was neat to see this finished.
