Amenia to Copake Falls, NY
Pick: 2008: Readers' Pick
About: Divided into two sections, the 15 miles of paved trail winds through woods, past wetlands and farms, and over bridges, offering spectacular views of the Catskill Mountains and Taconic hills. Best of all, it's flat -- so even if you haven't been on a bike since grade school, you can enjoy this ride.
