The North County Trailway was constructed along the Putnam Division railbed of the former New York Central Railroad ("Old Put"). At its north end it becomes the Putnam County Trailway, which continues along the former railbed to Brewster, New York.
While primarily a dedicated multi-use path, trail users are directed by signs to use a highway shoulder for two sections between Briarcliff Manor and Millwood.
The Putnam Division provided freight and passenger service from 1881 to 1958 between the Bronx and Putnam County. The railroad served 23 stations in Westchester County. Historic marker plaques have been placed at most of the former stations.
