Mosholu-Pelham Greenway

One Side of the Bronx to Another

November, 2017 by slipsoup

This is a great trail to get from one side of the Bronx to another. The ride starts from Van Cortlandt Park in Riverdale to Pelham Bay Park. Recent improvements to this trail have made it even better. Enjoy the almost 10-mile ride through the Bronx, mostly off-road, with some parkway crossings.
Visit City Island, Orchard Beach, and Pelham Bay Park, all within a short distance. The Bartow-Pell Mansion is across from the trail on Shore Road. The mansion grounds are free and make for a nice place to stop for photos or just a break.

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail, New Haven Ct to Massachussettes

November, 2017 by peasenh

My wife and I rode the trail in five segments, each approximately 20 miles each. My wife rode her 3-wheeled recumbent and I my Mt Bike. The trail is very level and has only a very few hills. Due to Autumn leaves and the wonderful foliage along the entire route, there was a considerable amount of leaves and other debris on the trail. In Cheshire and Hamden, the Parks and Recreation Dept personnel were cleaning and maintaining the trail every day we were there. The trail is well used by all, the surface is almost completely asphalt; unfortunately, rest room facilities are somewhat lacking...be sure to plan accordingly and take advantage when the occasion arises. WE LOVED THE RIDES!!

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail

New Haven Ct. to Southwick MA

October, 2017 by peasenh

We completed the ride during 5 different segments during Autumn 2017 and each ride approx. 20 miles. Hands down the Cheshire and Hamden segments were best maintained in terms of leaves/branches/acorns/etc being cleared from trail. Each time we rode those two city segments we saw city parks and recreation employees working on the trail and/or performing nearby grounds maintenance; BIG ATTA-BOY to those 2 towns. Our last segmented ride was Simsbury to Southwick MA; the trail was covered in leaves in most areas but didn't limit our travel. Of all the miles we rode, there was only one rest room facility (Cheshire), the remainder of the ride had portalets (pretty clean). We HIGHLY recommend this trail. Southington and Plainville are very near completing their final designs to make the trail complete.

Great trail

Very nice. Lots of small hills and curves so not boring. Great pavement and not in traffic at all. Loved it. Not too long either.

Larkin State Park Trail

Detour needs signage

October, 2017 by Mary Jean

The description of the trail talks about the detour using Long Meadow Rd. and Towantic Hill Road. There were no signs on the trail itself to tell you this detour was in place, and no signs on the detour roads. I could not find re-entry off of Towantic Hill Rd. I continued on the road until Riggs St. where I rejoined the trail turning right, west, at that point.
Didn't do much of the west end west of Rt. 67, it really was quite rocky. There were a few soft spots that were a pain, but mostly it was a quiet shady ride.
