At mile 5.5 is Dressell Farm. The trail passes through the apple orchard with spectacular views year round. Locals watch Independence Day fireworks which take place at the Ulster County Fair Grounds across the river. Be sure to have a bike light for the night ride home.

At mile 10.5 is the trail bridge at Springtown Road. It offers peaceful views of the often swiftly-moving Wallkill River as it flows north. You can see the shadow of the bridge on the water below in this photo.

At mile 9 is the Historic Huguenot District founded on land once occupied by the Lenape tribe for 5,000 years or more. This just one of several historic building dating back to the founding of New Paltz in 1678. This and other buildings are all within 100 yards of the trail.
