North-South County Trailway
This paved, multi-use trail spans 36.2 miles through Westchester County, 22.1 miles comprise the North County Trailway, from Eastview in the Town of Greenburgh north to Putnam County. The remaining 14.1 miles, south to the New York City border make up the South County Trailway. The North-South County Trailway is situated on what was part of the former Putnam Division of the New York Central Railroad. The “Old Put,” as it was fondly referred to by commuters, provided freight and passenger service from 1881 to 1958 between the Bronx and Putnam County.
