The Town of Yorktown is building a new hiking and mountain-biking connector trail between Route 118 and Baldwin Road, connecting to the new Crom Pond trail in FDR State Park, and Yorktown Trail Town will be assisting. The new trail will create off-road access to the park from Yorktown Heights, keeping walkers, hikers, and mountain bicyclists safer by avoiding busy roads. The map to the right shows the location of these trails.
Construction began in early 2018 and is expected to conclude in mid-2019.
Volunteer labor and grants will pay for most of this trail. Email Yorktown Trail Town if you or your organization would like to help!
The Mohansic Trailway route follows the Town-owned abandoned railroad spur from Route 118 opposite Downing Drive to Baldwin Road near French Hill School. The proposed trail includes three wooden bridges over the stream and a gully, and a boardwalk over the wetland near Baldwin Road.
The first of three bridges is now complete, thanks to our volunteer work crews and a generous donation from the Marvin and Susan Raskin Charitable Foundation.
The nearly 600 ft boardwalk was completed in Fall 2018 thanks to our volunteer work crews.
