Hop River State Park Trail

Riding the Hop River Trail

July, 2017 by furboy

We had two cars, and wanted to ride one way so we left one car behind the First Congregational Church 359 US 6, Andover, CT. The second car we parked at the trailhead 175 Colonial Rd, Manchester, CT where there is a dedicated parking lot. By car it was 15 minutes driving time one way between locations. From our start point we crossed RT 6 in front of the church to pick up the trail and then rode to the right heading west. The first 5 miles were a definite uphill grade, around mile 6 it became a downhill grade all the way to Manchester. Total distance between the two locations approximately 12 miles. Considering the trail is mostly hard packed dirt it was very well maintained, wider in some areas than others with a few road crossings. The scenery was mostly rocks that had been blasted through back when the railroad was built with a lot of ferns and greenery, but never saw the Hop River. There were mostly bikers on the trail, and everyone was very friendly. Other than the uphill grade for 5 miles it was a very pleasant ride. If you're looking for a nearby place to stay I highly recommended the Daniel Rust House in Coventry which was only 12 minutes from the church by car.

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail

Best of Connecticut

July, 2017 by nimmorp01

Started in Hamdon and road to Southington. Round trip was 28.04 miles. Rented bicycles from Cheshire bike shop which was all of 50 feet from trail. Trail was nicely paved the entire way except for a very short detour.

Southern New England Trunkline Trail

Bridge

July, 2017 by brandongillis

There should be a bridge or tunnel on connection between trails on Prospect St in Franklin. Connection at the moment is not very good and could be very improved upon, a little dangerous.

Southern side of trail is very nice and overall the trail is so nice, but could be a bit more maintained or even redone.

Southern New England Trunkline Trail

Impenetrable in Bellingham

July, 2017 by cory_ohayer

Beyond incredible at times, but largely tragically poorly maintained. The initial segment in Franklin was a challenge, narrowing with increased vegetation and mud. There was a very difficult crossing at Prospect St in Franklin, with a very challenging descent into the southern continuation of the trail.

The trail was amazing for a few miles, quite stunning all around though for this section the path was clear and maintained. South of Centre St. was near impossible, riding at times in water four inches high (days after the most recent rain). Had to abandon at Edgewater Dr. in Bellingham. Shame, if the DCR were to maintain this it could be an incredible opportunity for these communities as the Franklin trailhead is an easy bike ride from the commuter rail and could be a great excursion for car free city dwellers.

New Milford River Trail

Access way a little rough

July, 2017 by linda.gaboardi

Once you get in the main trail, it's a nice, easy ride. But I picked up some kind of metal shard in my tire, and I suspect it was on the access trail that starts on Boardman.

Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail (WIndsor Locks Canal Towpath)

Beautiful but rough

July, 2017 by aswinsor

Beautiful ride along the river BUT you better have a very soft seat to absorb the rough surface!!

New Milford River Trail

Mostly Along River Road

July, 2017 by pbcibc

This is a nice place to stretch one's legs for about five miles. The southern end (just over Boardman Bridge from Route 7), with limited parking, runs through a town park for about 1.5 miles; the northern portion, ending at Gaylordsville, is just walking along the Housatonic on River Road, one of the few remaining dirt roads in the area. There is more parking at the park's main entrance off of River Road, about 1.5 miles north of Boardman Bridge.
If you like a flat trail in quiet woods and don't mind a few cars coming along, this is a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. "There and back again" is about ten miles.

Derby Greenway

Meh.

July, 2017 by nyjenniferc

Full of goose crap. Loud and noisy. Thought it would be serene and picturesque by the river, but it was really industrial and boring, with no shade. The parking lot in Derby sucks. The bridge in Derby was full of firework debris, paper and junk. Very disappointed.

Air Line State Park Trail

Airline Trail South

July, 2017 by CW4

The Town of East Hampton and the State DEEP have added 1.3 miles of riding to the existing Airline Trail - South. It is hard to see the extension from the current ending on Route 196, but if you cross 196 and divert right and into the fire department parking lot you will find the new section. The new section goes to Alden's Crossing, a 1/2 mile from the intersection of Routes 16 and 66. The parking at the new ending is only marginal, 1-2 cars.

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

Hillsdale section now paved and open!

June, 2017 by billblum

I rode the newest 1.5 mile section from Anthony Street in Hillsdale to the Black Grocery Road trail head across the town line in Copake. It's a pleasant wooded section and a deer even crossed my path notwithstanding how close the trail runs to a residential section of Hillsdale. I then connected to the Orphan Farms Road to Undermountain Road section via a 3.3 mile detour, mostly on lightly traveled local roads with some gentle hills, to the Orphan Farms trailhead. Apparently this detour will be needed for some time since the plans for crossing both the Roe Jan Creek (near the Black Grocery trailhead) and NY Route 22, on the immediate opposite shore of the creek, have not yet been determined.

Love the trail

My hubby and I have walked and have now began bike riding it. Walking it is great exercise. I have to say though the bike was a bit harder when riding against the wind ... lol... Everyone we came across was very polite. Walkers, bike riders, roller blades etc. I certainly give it a thumbs up...👍🏼

Southern New England Trunkline Trail

Prospect Street, Franklin to Lake Street, Bellingham Update

June, 2017 by rogersweeny

This section was just graded, raised, and surfaced with a relatively fine gravel that seems to have been rolled to lie flat. No more puddles! The next section west to Center Street in Bellingham is amazingly flat and straight and covered in fine sand.

Vegetation has been removed from the side of these two sections, giving them a very different feel from the unimproved sections on each side.
