Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

dog warning

September, 2023 by guamlee7

just walked the D & H trail from granville center to middle granville. really enjoyed the walk out toward middle granville but on the way back while walking through the farm (which was a delightful experience on the first trip through, seeing calves and cows) but then were charged by two pitties which attacked my dog and knocked me down. Luckily I had an umbrella and was able to get up and get away and down the trail. the dogs followed for a while but then returned to the farm. Too bad because was a very enjoyable walk until this. I just hope these two dogs dont really hurt someone....

great little trail

Nice trail through the woods that opens up at the end at the boat launch for the Harriman Reservoir. Definitely not .5 miles; more like 3 miles out and back.

Trail is well maintained, and an easy ride. We started out at the south end by the Marina. A couple of beautiful waterfalls along the way.

Valley Trail

Absolutely not a rail trail at all

July, 2023 by mjfish

This trail starts as double track, then is closed due to mud, and washouts. Several single track trails off Valley Trail. “Maid Marion” takes you to Mt Snow.

Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail

great scenic trail

June, 2023 by mitchkahl

Well maintained and places to stop along the way.

West River Trail

trees down

June, 2023 by mitchkahl

Many trees were obstructing the trail making the ride from the trail head in South Londonderry to the campground difficult. Bring a Mtn bike or your regret using a street bike

Hoot, Toot and Whistle Trail & Riverwalk

awful for a bicycle

June, 2023 by bblakey55

I started at the boat launch. Rode halfway,smartly tuned around . Very poor conditions for a bike

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

Enjoyable and mostly easy

June, 2023 by ebjbiker

We did 11 miles of this trail. We went from Nassau Lake to Valatie. It was mostly flat. It did go on a road for a short section. There was ONE bench the whole way and no bathrooms. Valatie did have several places to eat. Please be aware that many are closed on Tuesday, so that limits the selection somewhat. Pizza ab Mexican we’re closed. Deli and diner were open. Overall it was worth the trip.

Erie Canalway Trail

Enjoyed the newer completed section along Lake Onondaga

June, 2023 by dradke

*PLEASE NOTE that the portion from Bridge Street to the Onondaga Creek, Syracuse NEEDS UPDATING on the Trail map, as connecting trail is now available and this isn't reflected in the map.* Today was our 3rd ride (each out and back) on this trail, completing the section from Port Byron to the Inner Harbor in Syracuse. Today's ride in nice weather was 21 miles round trip to the Camillus Museum from Syracuse. We enjoyed the museum and the newer section that is paved along the west side of Onondaga Lake from the Fair Grounds parking area to the south part of the lake. We did miss a turn heading up the hill to turn off the trail to the parking area so we could cross 690; not sure there was clear signage on that; there was going back down. We were able to go through the portion on the NYS Fairgrounds and noted that this is not open to biking during the colder months (I believe Oct-April 1); it wouldn't be hard to go around, but signage would be helpful on that, too. Signs for this portion of the Empire State Trail were quite good otherwise. Since we haven't had much rain in the past month, trail conditions were excellent on today's portion. Least favorite was the road portion (or "sidewalk ride") on Hiawatha Blvd as it was very busy. Parts of the portion we did today is hillier than most sections; it was not difficult for us "intermediate level" bikers, but parts wouldn't be the best for younger children or somebody who hadn't biked in a while.
