I went for this fantastic ride in perfect mid-Oct weather just before the peak of foliage. Stopped at the Monksville Dam & Reservoir for a short break. While enjoying the scenery, a gentleman on '74 Honda CB750 joined in to share few words. He was a local that offered to take me to a route that he enjoys; a slight deviation from this loop. He took me on the east side of Greenwood Lake (instead of the west side the route suggests). Once at the north peak of the lake, we stopped in for a drink & few bites at Emerald Point Restaurant & Marina. Food is good & the view is fantastic (both the lake & bikes) from here.

We continued on to route 17A & eventually split - he took a right on to Long Meadow Rd. (also great road I was told). It was around 4pm at that point & I had to start heading home - Long Island is about 2 hours & guaranteed traffic. I continued east to get back on 17 south & went over Tappan Zee.

I hope to get out here again soon; I'll start the trip early enough to finish the suggested loop which puts you in Bear Mountain further north.
