Western Connecticut is rural and quite hilly. As you enter New York, the roads are generally good and signing is adequate. Expect a moderate amount of traffic which increases as you approach towns. You'll continue to encounter hills until reaching Hyde Park, in the Hudson River Valley. You'll follow this rolling valley south to busy Poughkeepsie, and cross the Hudson River on the walkway over the Hudson pedestrian bridge.

The route follows river valleys and crosses the Shawnagunk Mountains to Port Jervis at New York/New Jersey border. Here, you'll begin to parallel the course of the Delaware River. Roads south of Delaware Water Gap through the remote Delaware Valley are narrow and poorly paved. You'll cross the Delaware River for the final time in Lambertville, New Jersey, which is near Trenton. The route continues west from Lambertville into Conshohocken. The New York Spur traverses rural countryside until it reaches the suburbs of eastern New Jersey where you'll encounter urban riding conditions.

Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
