Fine on a road bike. The NCT and SCT may be a bit beat up with frost heaves, so maybe watch your speed.
The NCT in Brewster is a mile west of the Metro North station. Head left on Rt 6 and up the hill, watch for Putnam Ave. on your right, the path is at the junction of Rt 6 and Putnam.
Some slight on road stuff in Mahopac, easy to follow. Then another on road (rt 100) south of Millwood, but it's all marked.
At the southern end of the NCT in Elmsford, head east 1/4 mile on Warehouse Lane to a right on 9A. Then south for 3/4 miles on a busy 9A to Rt 119, a right and the SCT is immediately on the left. South for 11.8 miles to Van Cortland Park,, then another 1.6 on the dirt to the VCP golf course lot. I measured the Brewster station to VCP golf course as 53 miles, one way
Is the VCP dirt doable on 23mm tires ?. Sketchy if it's just rained. 28mm's or bigger are better.
