Black River Trail

Thankfulness

November, 2016 by huniryan

I grew up in Black River and have frequent home visits yet never explored the trail until this Thanksgiving day. What a treasure! I ran the trail end to end glorifying in the beauty of the river and the trail. It was mostly snow covered. I loved the little bridges over the running water, the abandoned farm equipment, the rock formation, the wooden rail fence at Huntington St. I took many photos and will plan to frequent it more often.

Philip A. Rayhill Memorial Recreational Trail (NH&W Rail Trail)

Poor Trail Description

October, 2016 by yukrrr

Use it regularly. It is a nice open view walk, Lovely wild animals abound. Now for the not so nice parts. People let their dogs defecate all over the walkway and leave it for others to deal with. There is only one sign that tells you there is one half mile to go to get to Clarks Mills road. There should be legible signs every half mile so you know how far you are and have been walking. And please use the correct street names to describe the beginning and terminus of the trail. I didn't know Middle Settlement road is now called New Hartford street for the terminus and Clarks Mills road is the beginning of the trail. Unless I am missing something, this is very confusing to people that have never been there.

Rivergate Trail

Great ATV trail

September, 2016 by run jmc

This trail sorely tested the idea that a bad day biking is better than a good day at work.

Looks like it is used by ATVs a lot ... the surface is not particularly flat or smooth, anywhere. It's a constantly bouncing ride, which gets old after a while. That's really saying something for me, because I ride a fat bike and enjoy that sort of thing.

As of June 2016, there were two major problems as I went north from Philadelphia: The trail toward Clayton all but disappeared into overgrowth at Douglas Crossing. Okayyyy ... double back and settle for the shorter trail to Redwood. That turns into deep sand in places and is heavily rutted in others. The washout was passable by walking the bike, but it was really hard riding beyond that so I gave up.

Periodically there were places where I dared not go too fast, then bogged down in soft stuff because I was going too slow. Luckily I never actually fell, just had to do a panic dismount jump a few times.

Finally, the scenery isn't anything special, mostly overgrown fields.

Don't make a special trip for this one.

Rivergate Trail

Not bad

August, 2016 by cjsell13

This trail is fun, and one of the only published trails for Jefferson county. Riding from Philadelphia to Redwood is quite fun. Tried going to Clayton but the trail looked as if it's hardly been used after Douglas Crossing. Does anybody know if the Clayton trail is still open?

Black River Feeder Canal Trail

Great ride!

August, 2016 by leddad

We started in Forestport and then stopped in Boonville for lunch. Got pizza at Capri Pizza, ate in the park, then headed back. It was a nice smooth, well maintained trail. We went on a very not day and there isn't a lot of shade so I would recommend going on a cooler day or in the fall. Definitely recommend!

Erie Canalway Trail

Mohawk-Hudson River Trail Portion

July, 2016 by shk_61

Rode this on 7/25/16 - parked at Schenectady Community College and headed west - very nice and easy paved trail - goes right by a working lock - went through some swampy regions where the swamps were horribly inundated with algae - only a few turtles remained on exposed logs - when you end the trail and head out on 5S, there are no real good signs as to where the trail resumes - we went out a total of 10 miles and came back then headed east for 5 miles - all in all a 30 mile day of easy riding (had it not been for the extreme heat)

Black River Trail

Great Experience

July, 2016 by streak1

Ran this trail in July while on vacation.Beautiful scenery,asphalt pavement was very smooth considering how severe winters are in Watertown,and trail was quite uncrowded.It was summer and my run was accompanied by large biting bugs that left welts.Bring bug spray!Overall,a great running trail.

Erie Canalway Trail

Lovely ride along the river.

July, 2016 by tracylee1

We did two sections of this trail, basically the eastern and western most ends of it. First from Buffalo to Tonawanda and then from Albany to Cohoes. Both ends were pleasant, easy and picturesque riding, with water views during several sections and some in-town connections that were well marked with signs to keep us on track. The Buffalo end along the Niagra River had a few places where you can stop for lunch and restrooms. We also enjoyed the Canalside area of Buffalo, where we stayed at a hotel very near where the trail begins. This end had an area of the trail closed for constrction during our trip, but the detour was well marked.

The Albany end of the trail was a bit more urban, with the city on your left and the river/canal on your right as you head out. We enjoyed the architecture of the city buildings and bridges, the several parks and placarded areas which highlight the history of the area, and describe the former uses of the old, rusting remains of railway and canal equipment you pass by. There are many places to stop and eat your lunch, whether that be a picnic you packed yourself or a canal side restaurant where you can shoot the breeze with locals and other cyclists.

I highly recommend this trail. With the length, possibilities are endless and its a destination in itself. After four days cycling here, we headed south to the Walkway Over the Hudson to complete our New York cycling vacation. Gorgeous trip all around.

Rivergate Trail

Scenic view, some difficulties

July, 2016 by friedlinefamily

Attempted to run from Philadelphia to Clayton. Trail is made for mountain bike or off road vehicle. Not really suited for running. Also, trail portion west of Douglas Junction over the black creek is un-passable. Could not find a detour as you're 30 feet above the water standing at a cliff with no way across. Had to double back and detour to side streets to get needed miles.
