Cato-Fair Haven Trail

Great mountain bike trail

November, 2016 by roskopfm

I live in the Cato area, so I ride this trail all the time. In May, it's beautiful, filled with the wild purple Dames Rocket flowers. If you get on the trail earl morning, 7am you'll see the deer and great blue herons...there's lots of water along the edges and you'll go by three large ponds too. The bugs don't bother you, if you're moving fast enough on your bike. There's one 1.5 mile stretch between the first Ira Station rd (closer to Cato end) and the second Ira Station Rd crossing that's very bumpy with lava like rocks...I hate that part, but there's one of the big ponds in that area too. There are a number of big holes that are easy to go around the outer edges to avoid the possible water in it. The ATV's have always been very polite in slowing down when passing. It's great for horse riding too. I like it because the 14 miles is in the wilderness/very rural and it's ALL GREEN and there's variety all along the way. And the best part is in Fair Haven, eating home baked cookies at the FLY BY NIGHT COOKIE Company!!!!

Keuka Outlet Trail

A magical place

October, 2016 by lionsmoon11559

I have walked, rode my bike and ridden my horse on all parts of this trail. It is an amazing place with seasonal changes that make it different every time you go. My favorite time is May when the whole trail is decorated with wild lilacs of white, pink and purple. It is a lush fairyland. A word of caution regarding horseback riding. Approximately 1/2 mile from Dundee trailhead the overpass of Route 14A crosses over the trail. You can start to hear the traffic long before you get near it. My horse who is usually spook proof would not continue on the trail. She reluctantly allowed me to lead her with me on foot but the noise is awful. I would never again take my horse on that last 1/2 mile stretch. I will bike it to the end next time. In Dundee continue on Seneca Street to dead end at a small lake parking area. Very pretty view of the lake. I always take my visiting friends to walk the trail. It is always awesome. The history of the trail is quite interesting to read about.

Black Diamond Trail

Keuka Outlet Trail

Great scenic ride

October, 2016 by gn519

Rode this trail 10/5/16 on a sunny day. Trail surface was good all the way from Penn Yan to Dresden and the falls and stream provided a pleasant view with several good places to stop and take photos. Not quite as flat as we expected but nothing too challenging. Ice cream store in Dresden was closed but the diner across the road had some. :-)

Jim Schug Trail

Unsurpassed nature trail

October, 2016 by bvanwoert13

In addition to a welcoming trail for walkers , runners, etc. the 4 mile long Jim Schug Trail is an outstanding nature trail. Dryden Lake is known regionally as a must visit bird watching destination during Spring and Fall bird migration and through out the year. Almost every species of locally present mammal has been seen from the trail and plant species abound in its many and varried habitats. Fully 8 species of native maple can be seen within a few feet of its edges.

Black Diamond Trail

Ready by Nov. 2016

October, 2016 by ddylla

The NYS Parks Dept is actively working on the BDT from the northern end. It is partially complete now and expected to be fully completed to Cass Park in Ithaca by late fall 2016. My advice is to wait until late October to ride it. When it's done, it will be a beauty

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Great ride, but a bit rough in spots

September, 2016 by dhbaun

Rode this just recently from Canandaigua to Phelps/Rt 96. Beautiful scenery and very rural. We rode it on a week day and did not see any other cyclists for the full 19 miles. Definitely a mountain bike trail due to the tree roots in some sections.

Auburn-Fleming Trail

Not wheelchair accessible

September, 2016 by gpaul1

Went to this trial last week... I am handicapped and use a light scooter for trails. We tried as railroad trail in Skaneatlis and enjoyed it so we thought we'd try this trail. We should have know we were in trouble at the very beginning but we kept on going. The trail had ties sticking high enough above the ground to cause quite a bumpy ride.I got stuck in between ties and rocks a couple of times .Stuck enough so that I had to get off the scooter (I can only stand for a minute} and my husband had to push the scooter off ties. There were a couple of bridges that were elevated higher then the dirt so we also had trouble at the bridges. There is as section of of trail that is flat with no obstacles and that is toward the end. While on the trail we met people on bikes, walking and motor bikes.It is as nice short trail but it is not suited for the handicapped.

Charlie Major Nature Trail

Handcapped can use this trail

September, 2016 by gpaul1

First of all, I am very handicapped. I cannot stand and I cannot walk but I love to go outside and see nature. I use a scooter to get around. The scooter is light weight because we transport the scooter by car.The shooter is not that sturdy so the ground must be flat without rocks or mud or big railroad ties sticking out of the ground. Also the little scooter does not do hills. Sot his is why it is difficult to find trails that I can use. Well the nature trial was perfect, The ground was flat and stable, no steep hills and the scenery was varied enough that we were not bored with plain trees, although I do love trees too. We have been on rails before where we were stuck in the mud or on stone or up a steep hill so I am very glad we found a safe trail for my scooter and me and my husband.It is strange how some trails are labeled handicapped or wheelchair accessible and there is no way a wheelchair can get over rocks and railroad ties. So people with handicaps can use this trail safely.

Catharine Valley Trail

Awesome ride!

September, 2016 by speedypickup

This was the first rail trail that I've covered, the first of many that I plan on doing. As many others did, I parked at the Millport post office and rode from south to north on this wonderful 12-mile long trail system, spending some time enjoying the views of Seneca Lake and downtown Watkins Glen. However, I would strongly recommend to first-time riders, or riders that are not used to doing a 25-mile loop ride all in one day - START AT WATKINS GLEN and work your way south to Millport. The reason I recommend this is because it would probably be a whole lot easier riding UP the 2% grade the whole way from Watkins Glen to Millport while you're still fresh. Once you make it to Millport and turn around to return to Watkin's Glen, it's mostly downhill the whole way and you can easily pedal along at whatever pace you're comfortable with. As stated, I made the mistake of starting from Millport, which was great for an easy ride the 12 miles to Watkins Glen, but after riding 12+ miles into and around Watkins Glen, I was pretty much spent for the 12 miles back UP HILL to Millport. It was do-able, however, and I loved the entire ride anyway, despite finishing with legs that were on fire and burning like I've never felt before... lol. No pain, no gain, right? Thanks for the beautiful ride through mostly wooded, shaded forests on this well-maintained packed gravel pathway!
