The beginning of the 20 mile Ives Trail

Features -none-

Description

The Sidecut Trail follows the high ground bordering Bogus Brook between Sidecut Road and the Metro-North rail line. Trails are not permitted across functioning railroads; thus, this trail dead-ends at the tracks. What a coincidence! Just across the tracks is the southern loop of the Bogus Trail in Bogus Brook Preserve.

The 20 mile Ives Trail begins here as well.
