Harlem Valley Rail Trail

Great rail trail

May, 2021 by rmjm2squier

We rode from Millerton to Wassaic and back last Saturday. All paved. Very scenic. Flat. Not much bike or walking traffic. Look forward to completing the other way to Hillsdale. Enough shady areas to make this a good trail later on in the summer.

Ballston Veterans Bike Path

Very flat and straight 3.1 mile each way paved trail. No shade. Follows train tracks alongside Ballston Lake. Parking lot just past trail head at north end.

Beautiful day to go for a ride. It was nice to see so many people out.

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

Too Rough for Hybrids

May, 2021 by jimbo22

the small stone surface on top of rough tar results in constant vibration and absorbs energy making travel difficult. A local indicated the trail was completed last year - it is clear they have no concept of how to make a bike trail.

Trail Extended north from Millerton!!

April, 2021 by poohldm

The trail is great! My husband & I rode it thus weekend and discovered that they have recently completed it north from Millerton so both sections are now connected!

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

good mix of trail

April, 2021 by rmjm2squier

We started at the Hudson end. All cinders in Columbia County. This part is flat and the cinders bake hard once weather warms. Great views of falls land pastoral land. The Rensselaer county half is paved and has several hilly portions. The portions through the villages and hamlets include passing the remaining trolley stations. The shared road portions are ok and ample shoulders or light traffic streets are used.

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

April, 2021 by bktourer1

I rode from Nassau to Rensselaer today on the trail. Best place to park is at the town common. Tables/pavilion no porta potties.
10 Fairground St or 7 John Street good addresses to use.
Ice Cream spot right on trail and Cumberland and pizza nearby.
Trail in great condition except one bad street.. Large parking lot at Nassau Lake
Long up and downhills about for several miles, not bad unless there is winding
Well signed and many ped/bike crossing lights
After crossing I90, Dunkin / gas ad General Store.
The trail through neighborhoods on roads are quiet.
At about Miles 10,5 & 6. Stewarts Store ad gas stations right off trail for food
Trail ends on a street in East Greenbush, You can follow the on road signs all the way to Rensselaer (some long downhills)

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

very rough ride

April, 2021 by rbjpye

As mentioned by others this HAS been a great trail.
Currently the trail is in very rough shape due to horse traffic. The type of material used last year to resurface the trail is great for walking and wheeled traffic but is damaged when horses are ridden at a gallop.
Recent attempt to ride resulted in my wife and I leaving the trail and finding a paved road to ride back on rather than endure the constant pounding.
I am trying to contact Vermont Dept of Forest ,Parks, and Rec about this but so far have had no luck getting a response.
I will update this review if new info comes or if the status of the trail surface changes,

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

Best Trail

April, 2021 by cwr2yzfcs6

I do a lot of running and road biking. This trail is great for both. Rolling hill, scenic, great for distant ride/runs. Construction of the trail was completed Fall of 2020. By far my favorite trail in the capital region

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

Pleasant mix of flats and rolling hills

March, 2021 by earth2wayne

First off — skip the northern part of the trail from the Hampton Manor Lake area if you are a biker — and start your trip at Miller Road (just of interstate 90). You will be greeted by a babbling brooks, rolling hills, and the smell of farms. As you head south through Nassau Lake you will have opportunities for food and drinks. This is a fun ride.

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

fantastic trail

March, 2021 by ofthepearlgirl

This trail is great. There are paved stretches (from East Greenbush to Nassau) with mostly unpaved from Chatham to Hudson (with short stretches of paved in that area). My favorite part is the Nassau area.
