O&W Trail - PA

Poyntelle to Preston Park

June, 2017 by sluberoff

I biked a short stretch of the trail between Poyntelle and Preston Park with my hybrid bike and it actually wasn't that bad, although I did have to keep my eyes on the trail at all times to avoid scattered large rocks. Most of this section is open to ATVs (and snowmobiles in winter) although I didn't encounter any during my ride. Definitely not for road bikes or those expecting a perfectly smooth surface. There was a steepish hill south of Preston Park with many large rocks which those with less robust bikes might want to walk their bikes over (though mountain bikers might enjoy it). Mostly a "green tunnel," but some views between the trees in spots.

As a separate matter, note that the first two miles north from Simpson are closed until October or November of 2017 for installation of a gas pipeline.

D&H Rail Trail

Partial trail closure in 2017

Please note that the trail is closed between Simpson and Union Dale from May 2017 until October or November 2017 for installation of a natural gas pipeline.

D&H Rail Trail

Grinding Gravel

June, 2017 by lawn.czar

Am visiting NEPA And happened upon this trail while riding the local gravel roads on my cyclocross bike. Had a ton of fun riding from Burnhill and Tower Hill Roads up to Thompson. Surface was a mix of packed dirt, grass, loose cinder, and gravel ranging from "kitty litter" up to golf ball-sized rocks. I was running 35c semi-slick gravel tires (Clement USH) at 55psi and it was totally doable. A better tire choice might have been something like a 40c Clement MSO at 40-45psi, but I had fun regardless. I'm going to bring tires like that the next time I'm in the area and ride the full trail.

It seems like a few folk commenting here expected the trail to be a flat, smooth path and were angry that it ain't that. I'd put it half way between that and a true MTB trail; someone expecting a tough, technical MTB trail would be disappointed as well. But if you're looking for something chill for your MTB or want to add a fun section to a gravel ride, get in there.

D&H Rail Trail

Solitude but challenging

June, 2017 by bike10

Entered the trail at Union Dale and went north about 8 miles then back. Did not see a soul, only a turtle who may have been a little faster than me! The trial itself had great signage, but the 'parking lot' was an area behind the café (closed Wednesday's) and I asked someone if this was the trail lot. Very rough trail as others described. More like a washed out single track than a rail trail. I know it must be a lot of work for volunteer's to maintain and I am not complaining, just want others to know they may not want to bring little kids or anybody who is not up for a little bit more of a challenge!

Erie Canalway Trail

Fairport to W Henrietta Rd Rochester

June, 2017 by ajw

We parked at Lock 32, and rode west to Henrietta Rd (we were going to Genesee Valley Park, but trail closed at Henrietta Rd for bridge construction). Then turned around and went east to Fairport. 26miles roundtrip. Trail is paved, flat, and in good condition for most of the way. Since it is along a canal, it is open with little shade. Tough on a windy day. There was a portapotty at Lock 32, but no other restrooms or water that we saw.

Tannersville Bike Path (Huckleberry Multi-Use Trail)

Short but Sweet

June, 2017 by paulsen12

I parked on Clum Hill and rode to Bloomer. It's relatively flat but there is a slight incline C to B, making it easier if you start at Bloomer. Rides next to a stream which is nice. Short little ride that's nice if you have little time or with kids.

D&H Rail Trail

Beautifully Scenic, horribly maintained

June, 2017 by gardeningnagel18

We set out on a bicycling adventure on a perfect day. We were unable to locate the trailhead in NY as there wasn't a single marker or sign for it. So we continued on to Lanesboro and found the trailhead parking. The trail was extremely scenic, the sun was shining, the breeze was strong,unfortunately the trail conditions were about 90% horrible....too much cinder had our mountain bikes fishtailing, and if it wasn't that it was the size of the stone they used in most places that were far too big for trail bikes to travel safely over (Yes, I did end up going down). We actually had to walk our bikes through a few really rough spots, I believe were caused by the excessive rains we have been having. That is understandable, but we were so frustrated with with the conditions that we turned around at 6.35 miles. The trail was so beatiful, yet terribly maintained with little to no signage. I would love to ride this trail, but the conditions are prohibitive. We did meet people on atvs and even a dirt bike. They were respectful, but I don't believe they were supposed to be there. I would not recommend this trail for anyone who is looking for a relaxing enjoyable ride, I was totally stressed out from the conditions. We are going to give the other end of the trail a try, maybe the southern end is better maintained.

Liberty Rail Trail

Needs maintenance

May, 2017 by wattst53

We rode this trail May 9th, 2017 - really rough ride. The trail has three distinct parts. Starting from the north end, the trail starts with a vey irregularly surfaced stretch - definitely keep your eyes on the trail. The second portion was a short road section through an industrial area. A short steep descent led to the third section, perhaps rideable by an expert rider but we carefully walked our bikes down the slope. Turned out the third section was not worth the effort. There were many fallen trees across the path, not so large you couldn't proceed but defeating the purpose of the ride to stop and lift your bike over a tree every couple minutes. Finally after about 8 of these and seeing 3 more ahead we turned around and headed back.

Parksville Rail Trail

Pretty but stop riding to absorb the scenery

May, 2017 by wattst53

We rode this trail on May 12, 2017. The trail is a relatively easy ride with some great scenery (rock walls, stream and waterfall) but the surface was a little too rough to take your eyes off the trail. The surface was a variety of rock, dirt and grass and relatively flat. We had one wet, mucky spot where we gingerly walked through but this would not be a problem in a drier season.
