On arrival at Hopewell Junction the first service business that comes into view is a tavern called Daddy O’s located directly on the trail’s edge. Closed on Monday, so I carried on. Shortly after Daddy O’s, Hopewell Junction’s jewel comes into view. The railroad depot, one century old and maintained impeccably, the old train station stands as a reminder of days gone by and for today’s travelers, a welcome center. It offers restrooms, a compressed air bike tuning station, a railroad museum and cold soda vending machines. This is the first stop of its kind that I’ve found since my brief roll through Yorktown Heights.
