Heritage Trail

The 13-mile Heritage Trail follows the former Erie Railroad through New York’s Orange County, between Middletown and Harriman. It’s a spectacular paved/crushed limestone route with good views and plenty of historic landmarks. Especially nice during the fall foliage season. Also called the Erie Main Line Trail on maps.
