Graham Hills, Hawthorne, NY

When they said class would be let out early, I didn't that 2 PM was possible but it turns out that many of the other students in my Business Process Design class, who happen to be consultants, all booked their return flights very close to that time. Good think I decided to bring my mountain bike with me today. So, on the way home, I stopped off at Graham Hills for a little adventure.

There are three legal places to ride in Westchester County and this is one of them. Nestled in the corner of where the Sawmill River Parkway and the Taconic Parkway come to gether in Hawthorne New York is this this little County Park with some fun trails to ride. I rode the perifery trail. There is a map on but its not really to scale and kind messed up.

Where the trail comes down the hill towards the Sawmill is where I came upon an abandoned Mercedes 230 and I thought to myself, only in Westchester County would you see an abondoned classic car.

On the return leg, which was up a biiiiigggg hill, can you say hike-a-bike? I found some tight, curvy single track that hit some nice drops and rollers along the way. On the map below, that's the squiggly gps track above the Graham.
