Catskill Scenic Trail

once a bike trail, now a highway

October, 2019 by orka

This used to be my favorite bike trail, but on a recent day we encountered more motorized vehicles on the trail than bikes. We were overtaken by two ATVs, and had to pull off the trail to let a pickup truck pass! Clearly it's now unsafe for bikes to use the trail, yet when I contacted the sponsoring organization (Catskill Revitalization Corp.) they seemed unconcerned. It's a shame that this trail is now in decline and can't be recommended for biking. Let's hope these issues are addressed before it's lost for good.

Erie Canalway Trail

Amsterdam to a little past fort hunter

September, 2019 by aparrott58

Rode one way approx 7 miles starting in Amsterdam. While pedaling under the thruway overpass, it smelled like feces/urine. This area has an abandoned building and an adjacent overgrown wareyard with debris piles, junk and very weedy. Approx 1/3 mile past the overpass we stopped to look at map and weather app (the clouds were looking ominous) and I see a large man riding toward us (up until that point we saw no-one else on the trail). As he passed us grunting and snarling at us, I noticed he was filthy with dirty hair and face. He rode past us and less than 30 seconds later when I looked down the trail, he had disappeared into the brush (this is a straightaway section - you can see a long way). We turned around and within 10 minutes the downpour was upon us. We were soaked when we arrived back in am-dam.

My advice: do not pedal this section by the overpass alone. This man had no good reason to pursue us, then growl/grunt when passing us and then disappear back into the brush. If I had been solo riding, I can only speculate on a different outcome. He is living under/by the overpass. We apparently pedaled thru his "area".

Catskill Scenic Trail

Still rough

September, 2019 by aparrott58

Started out in bloomville. Rode 5.3 miles on fat tires. The trail was too rough for our bikes. We encountered an UTV on the trail. A grandpa and grandson were using the trail to get to town. Pops was setting a bad example imo showing it is okay to drive motorized on an nonmotorized trail... Also encountered heavy equipment on the trail in the same area. Either someone is maintaining the trail and removing debris or again, someone is using the trail to get to their property. The tracked equipment was leaving ruts so between the ruts, logs, rocks etc, this trail was too rough to be fun. The map shows the TH in bloomville is across the highway. That too is being overtaken by adjacent landowners. The "TH" was cluttered with industrial sized trash bins scattered everywhere leaving little room to park and no appearance of a "TH" . Despite these issues, the turntable foundation was cool. And so was the old dairy.

Erie Canalway Trail

Part 1, Albany to Schenectady, Lock 7

August, 2019 by lughnerson

This is the first of a multi-part review, since the trail is so long. It takes me and hour and a half to drive from New Paltz, NY to one of the parking areas.

Last year I rode the section from the Corning Center in Albany along the Hudson River to end at a parking lot in Watervaliet. Right next to the the river, there is a lot to see and hear on this paved trail, as the highway is sometimes very close. There are plenty of areas to stop and touch the water while on a break. Just do it sometime anytime. I would like to revisit this section after the leaves have fallen, just before winter.

Last month I rode from the through the Albany suburbs of Watervaliet, Green Island, and Cahoes. Though it is fairly flat and well paved, it is totally on-street section of the trail. One nice side trip is north up to Waterford, which goes over several bridges to Van Schaich Island and Peebles Island. When you cross the steel bridge you can see the beginning of the actual canal and its first lock near the Waterford Harbor Visitor Center. Just go down Cannon Street.

Last week, Tuesday August 20, 2019 I went to the section that includes the towns of Latham and Colonie, turning around at Lock 7 on the Mohawk River. This is a very nice section of the trail, good pavement, mostly shady and offers a few nice views of the Mohawk River. There is a short on-road section in Dunsbach Ferry where you ride underneath Route 87. Then a significant hill back to the trail. Headed west, from the Lions Park in Niskayuna ( a good parking area) there is one very straight and flat section of about a mile or so for time-keepers and racers. Lock #7 is a pleasant park to stop for a break and watch the boats navigate the rise or fall of the lock, next to a waterfall.

It may take several years for me to complete the entire Erie Canal trail, but it is a fun goal.

Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville Rail Trail (FJ & G Rail Trail)

Diane

August, 2019 by dianeray

I rode this trail for the first time yesterday and have mixed feelings about it. I found it disturbing that there were so many police cars driving on the Gloversville end of the trail and there were way too many street crossings. On the other hand I did enjoy riding along the creek and seeing the big abandoned factory buildings in Gloversville. The history to all those buildings must be amazing. Frequent stops interrupted my riding and made me slightly nervous riding through so many neighborhoods as I wasn't sure who I would encounter with the passing of 3 police cars. Well maintained.

Herkimer to St Johnsville

August, 2019 by francebau

We have been loving this trail from Herkimer ( starts at Movac parking lot rt 5s Mohawk) , past Fort Herkimer Church about 4 miles is paved and mostly flat. A beautiful ride. Will be great when the connection at rt 167 in LittleFalls is finished. The trail continues to be paved across rt 167 ( Little Falls). Mostly flat and very scenic. Turns to stone dust at Finks Basin rd. LF ( parking). Paved again@ STJ

Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail

GREAT TRAIL!

July, 2019 by mhammer323

My son and I stopped to the Voorheesville trailhead which is considered the end of the trail. We biked from here to the start of the trail in what's considered Albany. This is a great trail. From the beginning in Albany to Voorheesville is slightly uphill going but the way back is more of downhill feel (this coming from my 12 year old son). He did say this is one of his favorite trails we've ever done! They have bikers tools and air pumps at the beginning of this trail which is cool. Lots to see also along this trail. Will definitely make the travel to do this trail again! As described it is 9 miles each way.

Section Amsterdam to Sprakers

July, 2019 by vikkb34

We startes in Amsterdam,we parked on a dirt section on Cleveland Ave,little further down is a bigger paved lot.We did a little detour on Bridge Rd,nice pedestrian bridge(flowers & a few interesting sculptures.) Rode into Riverlink Park. Small park,but a cute little detour. Most of the trail was paved,there was a section that was bumpy.Pretty flat. About 4-5 miles was crushed stone/dirt.If it rained heavy may get muddy.We enjoyed the trail,a few street crossings.Was a pretty quite trail on a sunday.Was a mix of shade & sun. We seen some wildlife,seen a fisher & what looked like a weasel,was so quick.,so that was cool!.We rode to Sparkers. There was a cooler of waters & there was bathrooms across the street.(Courtesy of the church)We rode about 44 miles there & back,with detour. The trail is broken up into sections,so we rode this section. Hope to ride the Buffalo section..

Erie Canalway Trail

Bicycle Friendly Trail

June, 2019 by heochief

We rode this trail in two sections both in the Rochester New York area. Our first mini trip was a 20 mile run between Brockport and Rochester New York and the next day another mini run between Brockport and Albion New York. This trail rocks. Great views along the canal, Very friendly people in the many towns along the way who welcome cyclist. Many accommodations along the trail as well. Our favorite towns were Brockport and Albion. These are old canal towns that have kept there history. The trail offers great views is hugging the canal and offers some shade however the areas we rode were mostly open sunny areas. I have traveled on many canal trails and this trail did not fail. The trail is well marked has a town every 4 to 6 miles.We will return to do the entire trail soon.

Erie Canalway Trail

Erie Canal between Buffalo and Rockport

June, 2019 by tharrity73

My group of 4 started a bike trip from downtown Buffalo. Our plan included stops in Lockport and Brockport. The “canalway” trail out of Buffalo had many closed sections without properly marked detours. We were forced to figure out our own detours with the help of other bikers. Signs are desperately needed that give bikers proper detour paths (all on the road). As we moved east out of Tonawanda the trail improved and there were few detours. However, the NY Canal Corp is currently working on sections of the trail. They are adding a sand gravel mix that is very difficult t for riding bikes. All 4 of us had close calls with falling

Erie Canalway Trail: Herkimer Home to Little Falls

June, 2019 by ellafan

I intended to start my ride in Little Falls and even though I could see the trail here and there, I wasn't able to find a sign for parking. I kept going until I got to Herkimer Home where I knew there was parking. Behind Herkimer Home is the trail. I went west to Little Falls. The trail was excellent and well maintained. Parts of it were asphalt and parts were not paved, but I had no difficulties. The trail in this section was in better shape than I expected give this past winter and wet, wet spring.

I can't wait for the whole Erie Canalway Trail to finally be pieced together. What an amenity. Even though some pieces of the trail aren't far from the highway, the trail is enclosed by trees and vegetation so you don't see the cars and trucks. The vegetation also buffers out the noise.

The only thing that I would suggest and I hope that NYS Parks does is to put in mileage signs and some education signs along the way. I passed several manmade features that I wasn't sure what the original purpose was for. Maybe locals know their canal history, but visitors probably won't.

Warren County Bikeway

Great Training Course for Half Marathoners

May, 2019 by hancockp

I am a 75 year old runner. I start in the center of Glens Falls and run on the Bikeway to Route 9 about once a week and all the way to Lake George and back about four times a year.

On the fourth Saturday of June the ADK Runners hold the "Run to the Lake 15K" that starts at Suny ADK, up Blind Rock Rd, then picks up the Bikeway at Ash Drive. It's a challenging run. When you turn down toward the lake it can be brutal on your knees if you're running hard.

Looking forward to extending the Bikeway to Warrensburg.
