Toonerville Rail-Trail

More like a sidewalk

June, 2017 by gsenecal

My wife and 2 kids (7 and 10) and I were here on a Sunday afternoon. We started at the end of the trail near Rt 91. We were the only ones there. We parked in the trail parking lot and headed toward Springfield. The trail starts as a dead end street, at the end of the street it turns to a paved bike path. The start of the path is very nice, after passing by a gas station and a busy road crossing and parking lot, it parallels a river for about 1/4 mile. The trail ends and the route follows a quiet country road for another 1/2 mile before coming to an old iron road bridge that crosses the river. There's a small park just over the bridge that we stopped at for a break. After that, the "bike trail" just parallels route 11 until the outskirts of Springfield. It looks just like a pavement sidewalk next to a busy road, for the next 2 plus miles until it ends in a run down part of the edge of town. Overall not much scenery after mile one, and not much fun.

Champlain Canalway Trail: Saratoga

Mostly Grass but a nice walk into history

June, 2017 by flmark

This path is an easy walk, but would be annoying by bike. I am writing this review after realizing nobody else had commented and I managed to find myself on this path by chance. The Saratoga Battlefield Park has a few paths where a lawn mower is the only thing that keeps the path active. I followed one of these paths down to the bottom of ‘The Great Redoubt’. Immediately across from the site of General Fraser’s death, a path leads to a small bridge, which crosses the remnants of the canal. I walked to the southern end, which is at the sign for the entrance to the battlefield, maybe a half mile. It was an enjoyable little side trip, as part of the rest of my battlefield walks.

I have biked on several hundred miles of trails here at traillink. This ranks near the bottom for biking, as the amount of crushed stone is far exceeded by the grass content. However, if you want to combine a bit of US history with a pleasant walk along this old canal, I would recommend a battlefield hike that incorporates this trail which can be reached from the last stop on the car tour of the park. So, one star for biking, four stars for walking...leads me to give it two stars overall. I don't mountain bike, but I would imagine it would probably most of those folks happy.

Zim Smith Trail

Watch for Construction

June, 2017 by amer_tl

I was there yesterday and entered the trail in Round Lake near Leah's Bake Shop. We rode north for a little bit but found the trail was closed for construction. Not being familiar with the roads in the area, I am not sure how much of it was closed but it was after the highway overpass.

It is a beautiful ride with lots of nice places to stop for refreshments. The Village of Round Lake is lovely.

Erie Canalway Trail

Fairport to W Henrietta Rd Rochester

June, 2017 by ajw

We parked at Lock 32, and rode west to Henrietta Rd (we were going to Genesee Valley Park, but trail closed at Henrietta Rd for bridge construction). Then turned around and went east to Fairport. 26miles roundtrip. Trail is paved, flat, and in good condition for most of the way. Since it is along a canal, it is open with little shade. Tough on a windy day. There was a portapotty at Lock 32, but no other restrooms or water that we saw.

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

Update Middle Granville NY to West Pawlet VT

May, 2017 by jfmachowski

5/28/2017 The trail begins near the former Middle Granville NY Depot on Depot St. Does not appear to be trail head parking at this point but you may be able to leave a car near the business occupying the former depot.

Very shortly down the trail it gets a little confusing as the "trail" goes through a dairy farm. Today that hilly portion was not bike friendly with mud and puddles and deep ruts so I took a short detour to the nearby road and around the farm back to the trail.

The trail from there to the Granville town center was fine with a mix of grass and crushed cinder. The trail passes a bed and breakfast in town (trail parking here) and then it is mostly crushed cinder and good going to the Vermont state line.

From the NY/VT line to West Pawlet again a mix of grass and crushed cinder. A little less than 7 miles from Middle Granville to West Pawlet. There is trail parking at West Pawlet near the intersection of 153 and Egg St. I finished the trail here but it continues for 9.5 miles to West Rupert.

Previous reviews had mentioned a dog problem in the VT section after leaving NY (going south) or approaching the NY state line (going north). There were loud barking dog(s) in this area but they did not impinge on the trail. I could not see through the brush to determine if they were leashed of penned.

Lovely trail in the early spring. Great variety of scenery--fields, wetlands, Amherst College, pine forest. Well maintained, frequent rest areas. Quite lovely.

Great trail, easy ride. Best part is... It's paved the whole way into center of Northampton. If you end in Northampton make your way to Mimmos. Biggest slice of pizza you'll ever eat for a good price. Enjoy and happy riding!

Champlain Canalway Trail: Schuylerville

Hudson Crossing Park Worth Exploring

October, 2016 by wally.elton.3

North of Schuylerville, this trail passes by Champlain Canal Lock 5 and through Hudson Crossing Park, which has about 2 miles of other trails to explore. One leads north between the Champlain Canal and the Hudson River to Eagle Point, with a beautiful view of the dam and rapids below. Learn more at www.HudsonCrossingPark.org. It is worth noting, too, that once you cross the pedestrian bridge over the Hudson, back roads have been designated as the route of the Champlain Canalway Trail as far north as Fort Edward. Most of this route is signed. As of late 2016, this is the longest continuous stretch of the CCT open to the public.

Ashuelot Rail-Trail

Hinsdale to Keene - a fantastic ride all the way

October, 2016 by lynnajack987

My husband and I recently completed this entire rail trail from route 63 in Hinsdale all the way to Keene. We did this in 5-mile increments and we both enjoyed every mile. My husband is an advanced mountain bike rider and I'm more of a beginner.

Almost the whole trail is old railroad bed of packed ballast with shorter gravel and sandy sections. This is NOT a road bike trail and those of us that have mt bikes like it exactly the way it is!!!

The first 5-mile section from route 63 in Hinsdale to the old Ashuelot depot and covered bridge on Gunn Mountain Rd off of route 119 was spectacular. There is only one small spot where a bridge most have been that is a short, steep down and then quick up the other side which requires any technical skill. I just choose to walk my bike down and then back up. This section of the trail goes by some fascinating old, abandoned mills with some spooky looking old tracks.

The second 5-mile section from the Ashelot covered bridge to Old Westport Rd in Winchester is only slightly more technical.

The third 5-mile section from Old Westport Rd to Railroad Rd in West Swanzey was a beautiful ride.

The forth 5-mile section from West Swanzey to Keene while beautiful was, for us, pretty boring. This section of the trail is hard pan dirt and, when dry, would easily accommodate road bikes.

All in all a fantastic biking resource which we are delighted to have discovered. We'll be back often!

We were unable to ride on the Ashuelot Trail so we picked up the trail from Keene And headed north ... we were able to do a 10 mile round trip shaded and scenic

Ashuelot Rail-Trail

Major difficulties

October, 2016 by jheimer720

First it was hard to find the trail head next looking for parking and then when we finally started riding on it we didn't even get a mile before there was major construction and blockage going on the Keene trailhead... big disappointment
