Hudson Valley

Planning on riding the Hudson River Valley area in the late spring / early summer. I know there is a lot of great roads and scenery but I would appreciate any insight into must ride or must see things along the way.
( restaurants - Historic - etc )
Im starting out in NJ and plan on riding north along the Hudson for a week.
Probably riding the " Connie "
Thanks,

Mike

I ride that area often on day trips from CT. Mostly Dutchess and Columbia county, the county roads there are smooth and scenic. And its hard to get lost, the corridor between the Hudson and Rt 22 isnt that wide, Usually I just wander aimlessly on any road that looks fun.

Hit up Bear Mountain, near the West Point Academy, then Rt 301 into, or out of Cold Spring is very nice.

Take a day trip thru the Catskills if you like mtns and winding roads. And dont miss Rt 55 thru Lake Minnewaska area.

If I had a map in front of me I could tell you lots more.

Lots of history in that area also. Mansions overlooking the river, quaint old towns etc.

I do that ride on my Harley, so I dont know any dirt roads if you are dual-sporting.

Thanks, I appreciate the info.
I plan on racking up a lot of miles so I will absolutely hit the Catskills.
Looking forward to it.
