I really enjoy hiking this trail. There are lots of marked side trails off of the main trail that can really get your heart rate up if your looking for a more challenging hike.
Simple, a short ride through the woods. Not much to look at besides trees, the end is anticlimactic. Good for beginners.
I saw someone else doing a review and she was absolutely right it does need benches.
I know a lot of people that are using this for biking don’t like how it is broken up but for walking the shorter ones are easier it kind of makes you feel accomplished.
From the beginning we got after a mile or so. Lacking in signage and painted bike markings on the road. We gave up after a few miles after getting lost a few times .
We finally found entry near Eldridge Park. Other place is wegmans parking lot. Smooth easy ride.
Had a great ride just had to move my starting point south about 3 miles from the Viaduct, due to construction on the trail. Trail is in great shape and made it to Carbondale. Just would of been nice to know the trail was closed to the NY line.
Some beautiful parts of the trail. However, in many places the trail is poorly marked and the southern end (3-4 miles), requires some technical skill. It’s probably fine for hiking. Stick with the northern portion, e.g., Watkins Glen or Montour Falls for about 8 miles south.
The paved parts were nice, we felt safe, and there was plenty of history to look at but only 4 miles is bikeable, after that it just goes off into swamp. The other end near the high school just turns into a dirt trail. The lack of signs and arrows was a little problematic, had to backtrack twice. Plenty of portojons so that was nice.
I rode the length of the Catharine Valley Trail in both directions. It's a very average trail. It's basically a crushed stone surface through the woods without anything to distinguish it from a thousand other trails. Signage is fair - there are a few places where a sign indicating the direction to the trail would have been helpful, but after fumbling around for a couple minutes you can figure it out. Portions of the trail follow Rt. 14, so there's a fair amount of traffic noise. There are a few points of interest in Watkins Glen and Montour Falls at the far north end, but other than that, there's really nothing else to see when you're on the trail. I would not recommend making this a "destination" trail - it's really not worth it. I would only suggest using it if you intend to bike from Watkins Glen down to Horseheads or Elmira. The trail allows you to avoid Rt. 14, which, although a designated New York State bike route with ample shoulders, has heavy high-speed traffic.
This trail is well marked and goes along the highway. nothing interesting. Good for quick ride during evening .
Great ride and well maintained trail. Pack sandwich as there are number of spots on the way. Waterfall is the hidden gem!
