3-4 day trail suggestion upstate NY / Vermont

Hi,
I just moved to New Paltz for 2 months and looking for trail routes for a day trip or 2-3 day trips.
Seems like the only dirt road roads are 100 yard long that ends with a house and an angry landlord with a shotgun ;-)

Anyone knows of some good dirt / gravel roads in the Northeast?

Extend it by a few days and do this

It's really. Really. Good.

The NNEAT is a good suggestion.

Vermont also has lots of gravel and a fair bit of public right-of-way with varying levels of "unmaintained" status (from "we'll fix culverts that blow out" to "there was a road here 100 years ago, we think."). I've put together some mapping info over in Layin' Down Tracks (here) if you want to explore the land of hippies, trustafarians and cows.

If you're looking for a preplanned route for a day or two, you might consider looping the Puppy Dog Route and the Hampster Route (the former is documented over at the Motorcycle Owners of Vermont site, the latter in draft form in another thread here in the Northeast forum).

A lot depends on how dirty you want to get...
