North County Trailway

Great Trail

July, 2020 by gieniacz

Completed approximately 12 miles and then back. Started at the north end. It is downhill going south so, biking back (more tired) you will have more hills to deal with. Next time we will start at the north end. Also, a short part of the trail was closed and there was a detour for about .25 of a mile and then you get back right on. We stopped in Millwood for refreshments. Excellent trail. It was 90 degrees outside but the shade was awesome and made the ride very comfortable.

Ashokan Rail Trail

beautiful water views

July, 2020 by SPanny

Rode this trail on 7/6/20, from the West Hurley trailhead to the end and back…about 23 miles. Trail is cinder/gravel, basically brand new since it was opened only last Fall. We were riding road bikes, one with 32c tires, one with 25 c… very doable, but I would say wider tires (trail or mountain bikes) are best here. It’s in pristine shape…about 80% shaded, nice diversity of trees on either side including pine, birch, oak. I counted four absolutely beautiful sections where you can see the reservoir (probably can see more in the Fall/Spring) and there are some nice raised boardwalks plus 2 or 3 bridges. My favorite parts of the trail were a long section along the water near the West Hurley trailhead, and the last section at the other end where you have expansive views of the water. So happy that this is now available to us all – kudos to everyone involved! Please also note that there is a wonderful waterfront walk/bike path, called the Promenade, on the other side of the reservoir…gorgeous views of the surrounding hills. Worth checking out as well!

D & H Canal Linear Park

Review for D AND H canal trail

July, 2020 by hardboy1864

Very nice trail Well kept and groomed. From 209 to Wurtsboro. Everything was well marked and groomed. Watch out for dogs near some of the farms near by. One of the dogs came at our party and almost bit one of the riders. The owner came out and later apologized.

Heritage Trail (NY)

As Flat as it Gets Around Here

June, 2020 by ilyalapin90

Perfect trail to go road biking on. This is as flat as you can find it around these parts with only 450ft of elevation over a round trip of about 30 miles. Perfectly maintained and paved tarmac. Not a single incline/decline above 1% gradient.
The closest official parking location on the Southern end of the track is at Orange and Rockland street long term parking lot. However, if you wish to start at there very tip of the trail, I recommend parking at River road and North Main Street in the town of Harriman (right next to Mary Harriman Park).

River-to-Ridge Trail

A pathway to the "Gunks"

June, 2020 by sschwinn

Great pathway to the Shawnagunk mountain area with very easy access from New Paltz and the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. There are some hilly sections where you might encounter some slippage with a road bike. It was OK on my cyclocross.
The upper loop is on a mix of gravel farm and paved rural roads.

great trail, but get ready for some closures

June, 2020 by doittomorrow1957

We took our bikes today June 23rd 2020, and someplace in Mahopac the town closed partially the trail, we couldn’t find the way around, wish they put signs for a Detour. Other than that, trail is beautiful

Maybrook Trailway

seemingly closed to the public

June, 2020 by cmp.urquhart

We rode this trail in June 2020. There were signs that seemed to indicate the path was closed but numerous people were entering on foot, rollerblade, and bikes. A number of websites seem to indicate the path is still under construction and not yet open to the public but MTA does not seem to restrict access. We are still unclear.
