Rockland Jones Point Path
Jones Point Path is a paved bypass which allows you to skip climbing Dunderberg Mountain on 9W. This is on one of the northermnost stretches of 9W in Rockland County, between Tompkins Cove and Bear Mountain, a bit south of the Bear Mountain Bridge.
Some people might like it because it’s a good bit flatter than climbing Dunderberg. More people might like it because it provides a safer alternative to riding on a segment of 9W which is often treated like a highway by drivers.
