Yorktown Community Trails


A fequently asked question is where does the pedestrian bridge over the Taconic Parkway go. It connects parks to form a network of about 15 miles of trails. Very few town parks have more than four miles of trails; this network will have even more miles as it expands to connect with other parks! Its official name is the Yorktown Trailway Taconic Parkway Overpass Bridge, but it is also known as "that bridge"

Neighbors have already discovered the advantages of having trails close by. These trails provide low cost recreation which helps develop a healthy life style; they also enhance the value of nearby homes  

Through a memorandum of understanding between the Town of Yorktown and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, volunteers are building, managing, and maintaining this network of marked trails. The project is a cooperative effort of the Trail Conference and the Westchester Mountain Biking Association. See their forum on the right column of their website.
