The backroads area between Route 6 and the Westchester border, known as Dingle Ridge, was at one point host to the New York Post Road that went from NYC to Vermont. One clue to this history is the old mileage marker on Dingle Ridge Road. From Route 6, head south on Dingle Ridge Road for 1 mile. When the road levels out along the top of the ridge, the marker will be on your left. Take a look, but please respect the private residences along the road.
