Everybody needs a chance to slow down from time to time, a moment to pause, to tune out the business of work, family, obligations, etc. That’s why we ride, that’s why Woodstock Harley-Davidson exists. We exist to give you the chance to enjoy something entirely yours – your ride. We believe that riding is therapy for the soul and we want to help you enjoy every moment of it.
Riding a motorcycle in New York is an incredible experience and we’d like to share it with you. From historical sites to mountain views and other scenic treks, there’s a lot to take in, all over the great state of New York. Here are a few of our favorite motorcycle rides with help from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation.
Great Northern Scenic Tour
Heading west on State Route 23A, the Great Northern Scenic Tour is a great day trip. With multiple spots to catch a view of the wonders of the area – waterfalls to bridges and more – it offers 70+/- miles of riding fun.
Phoenicia to Woodstock
The Phoenicia to Woodstock right ends in our backyard (or starting there if you want to ride it the other way), this trip gives you a chance to explore historic Route 28 and enjoy all the attractions along the way – nature, music and more!
Fishing Heritage Scenic Tour
A short 19-mile trek, this tour follows Willowemoc Creek. If you take the trip, be sure to stop by the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum. It’s right along the route, just a bit northwest of where 179 and 151 meet.
Shawangunk-Catskills Scenic Tour
This route isn’t a loop, so you’ll need to plan accordingly. If leaving from the Kingston/Woodstock area, you can either head south on 87 to exit 118 for 299 or you can head northwest to catch 28. The route winds through the mountainous Catskills area, through wild forests and more, offering natural beauty at every turn.

Pepacton-Andes Scenic Tour
If hiking, covered bridges, and fishing are your thing, then this is the route for you. The Pepacton-Andes tour starts in Margaretville and goes north, eventually following the Pepacton Reservoir around. Offering prime photo, hiking, and fishing spots, this is one trip where you get to enjoy the experience on and off your bike.
Heart of the Mountains Scenic Tour
Another route in our neighborhood, the Heart of the Mountains ride is a great loop, winding westward from Woodstock on 212. You’ll go around Phoenicia Wild Forest, stop by Mount Tremper and pass the Kenneth L. Wilson Campground before heading back to town. All in about 22 miles!
New York has some of the best riding around, especially upstate. Whether you join one of our group rides, go with your friends, or ride alone, you won’t want to miss these rides. And, be sure to stop by and see us at 949 Route 28 in Kingston, just down the road from world-famous Woodstock.
See you on the road!
