Oswego County Trail

very rough

May, 2023 by dierdre

We started from the Fulton end. We only did 5 miles and then turned around. A few times it was necessary to walk our bikes through sections.

Black Diamond Trail

Beautiful Trail

April, 2023 by brtcom007

We’re on vacation and walked this trail for approximately 6 miles with our dog. Loved it the scenery and serenity were amazing. We’ll definitely be visiting this again our next trip.

Keuka Outlet Trail

great trail

April, 2023 by brtcom007

Enjoyed a peaceful morning walk , time to relax with our dog. Beautifully maintained and an easy walk.

Keuka Outlet Trail

Amazing views of the Keuka Lake Outlet. Waterfalls. Wildlife. Parked in Dresden and rode a bike to Penn Yan and back. Not the best for bikes, though. Lots of rocks and sticks (some broken glass) on the trail (rode in mid April). Trail width varies.

South Hill Recreation Way

love this!

January, 2023 by 8fx762jzvh

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.

Oswego County Trail

I am glad to say I tried this trail so that I never have to try it again

August, 2022 by kepalazzoli

Oswego County Trail starting in Central Square and heading East toward Sylvan Beach. If you enjoy riding a combination gravel pit/mud bog through swamps and what smells like a sewage treatment plant this trail is for you! We rode 20 miles dodging mud pits and ATVs but that was easy because there was really no interesting scenery to distract us from the trail. The abandoned playground was mildly creepy and the outhouse was too sketchy for me (and I grew up with outdoor facilities) so we kept going. The trail was so rough parts of my bike rattled loose but I wanted to decrease the bike weight anyway (silver lining am I right?). We actually left the trail in Constanta so we could look at the lake. The 10 miles of trail crossed 10 roads so if you enjoyed playing Frogger in the 80s you will LOVE this ride. All in all I give this trail one star because it is actually a trail and it is well marked. There is no parking at the trail head so you have to ask a nearby business if you can leave the car in their lot while you ride.

West Monroe to Bernard’s bay

August, 2022 by chains

Parked at west Monroe park off rt 49, road to where the entrance to Sand Bar is. 11.27 miles out and back. It was flat but did have a lot of soft gravel areas. I would recommend it.

Erie Canalway Trail

Port Byron to Camillus runs along a non-navigable branch of the Erie Canal

August, 2022 by ratret

On August 12, 2022 I rode my bicycle on the Erie Canalway trail from Port Byron to the Erie Canal Park and Museum in Camillus (which is on the trail) and back, approximately 19 miles each way. It was a dry, sunny day in the 80’s. The surface was mostly crushed gravel and packed earth with a few stretches on asphalt in the breakdown lane of some local roads where the trail diverged from the canal. The condition was good to excellent except for the final short stretch near Camillus which was unacceptable because erosion in two areas created the dangerous possibility of falling into the canal and because the trail was too narrow for two bikes in opposite directions to safely pass each other. For this small section, I recommend riding on the local road on the other side of the concrete barrier dividing this path from the local road. The surface on this local road was only fair secondary to potholes and cracks in the asphalt.

The museum in the Camillus Erie Canal Park is open 12-4 PM on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday and is open from 1-5 PM on Sunday. Most sections of the Erie Canalway Trail from Port Byron to Camillus run along a non-navigable branch of the Erie Canal which is very shallow and is overgrown with algae or cattail plants or is filled in with dirt. Other sections go through wooded areas, rural areas, farmland and the small town of Weedsport.

Auburn-Fleming Trail

Excellent conditions today, even after a couple days of heavy rain. Looks like some recent work has been done between the Dunning trail head and first bridge!

Cayuga-Seneca Canal Trail

Not much to see on this trail. Well maintained and one landowner landscaped it beautifully but other than that really nothing to see. The Penn Yan to Dresden is way nicer with much to see.
