Starting at Grant's Tomb, this ride goes to the site where American troops were massacred by the British. A series of plaques tells the story. There are picnic tables at the site.** Lunch can be purchased at one of two delis or two bagel shops around the intersection of Rivervale Rd. and Westwood Ave. There are no bathrooms at the historic site, so stop at Pascack Brook Park before buying lunch. On route home, there’s another pit stop at a park on Westwood Ave. Easy B or C ride. Can be shortened for C ride by starting or ending at NY side of GW Bridge.

**As of summer 2012, there are no longer picnic tables.  However there is a stone wall where you can sit & eat.
