A drive where indigenous wildlife are abundant. Deer, turkey, geese, ducks, critters, chipmunks, raccoons, birds of variety. Speeding would be hazardous to your vehicle when wild life is hit. Bikers heaven. Just beautiful.

Yes. In fact the bike shop is on Route 17 in the Village of Sloatsburg just south of Seven Lakes Drive. There is a complete biker's facility there as well as some cool brew pub and food choices. Enjoy!!
