Kingston NY is another great and historic town in Ulster County. It’s full of history, old churches and friendly people. We usually end our O&W rail trail ride in Kingston, eat a slice of pizza and go back. We also connected to the Wallkill Rail Trail by going through the town and riding on the street. It’s not too bad, even for an inexperienced bike rider like myself.

Places to eat in Kingston
When you visit Kingston NY, you want to know where to eat. We haven’t tested many places except the pizza but we will keep you updated.
Picnic Pizza– After our ride from Stone Ridge to Kingston, we stop by for a slice of pizza and a drink at Picnic Pizza. There is seating outside so we can watch our bikes while we eat. The pizza wasn’t as flavorful as we like but it hit the spot.
This is probably the only place where we’ve ate in Kingstone NY. Once we check out other places, we will add them to the list.
So next time you visit Kingston NY, don’t just pass by. Stop by a trail, look at the nature and enjoy a pizza in the woods.
