Jim Schug Trail

Unsurpassed nature trail

October, 2016 by bvanwoert13

In addition to a welcoming trail for walkers , runners, etc. the 4 mile long Jim Schug Trail is an outstanding nature trail. Dryden Lake is known regionally as a must visit bird watching destination during Spring and Fall bird migration and through out the year. Almost every species of locally present mammal has been seen from the trail and plant species abound in its many and varried habitats. Fully 8 species of native maple can be seen within a few feet of its edges.

Parksville Rail Trail

Nice walk.

September, 2016 by ascordo

Walked this trail on 9/20/2016. This trail is an easy walk with plenty of scenery along a wooded trail with a running creek with waterfalls in a few areas. The trail itself is only 1.6 miles one way. I walked it up and back in about an hour. You can park your car on either end of the trail. NICE

Catskill Scenic Trail

Great Potential

August, 2016 by jhausheer

The scenery is 4.5 and the surface varies from 3.0 to 4.5.
This could be a destination trail if money were invested to improve the surface and put in better mileage signs. The local volunteers are trying hard but they could use some help. There are a number of road crossings but traffic is light.

Cooperstown NY is about an hour away and a great place to spend the night.

Catskill Scenic Trail

CST, Bloomville to Stamford

August, 2016 by chrispetersen66

Terrific trail in terms of scenery and signage and very good in terms of maintenance. After reading several reviews, we went with the Bloomville to Stamford route, then back to Bloomville. The Bloomville Trailhead has a nicely shaded parking lot on Highway 10 that is marked by one of the octagonal CST signs. It's a small sign that you have to look for when driving on the eastern outskirts of town, but it is on the shoulder and visible. These signs are all along the trail, along with several other larger detail signs of the entire trail and particular features. The scenery is amazing: rural Catskill farmland and the Delaware River West Branch. I could see this being a fantastic birding area at dusk or dawn. We did get a wonderful close up sighting of a great blue heron and a kingfisher on our midday ride. Large rocks and railroad ties still embedded in the trail? Very minimal, but zero complaints from us. Grass was minimal and no higher than an inch or two. Also note that on our early August 2016 ride, a bridge one quarter mile north of Hobart was under construction. The deck was halfway done when we got there, but was easily walked across. Elevation gain from B'ville to Stam was 300 feet, so I call it flat. 25 miles was perfect for us. If you are in this area of the Catskills I would highly recommend this section of a fine trail. Thanks CST!

D&H Rail Trail

Last Sunday morning in July

July, 2016 by cindy.gerner.5

Started at the parking area in Forest City. Uphill all the way to route 374 at Herrick Center. It's a rail grade so it was manageable. I read some reviews prior to this ride and this is supposed to be the improved section. Not the typical rail surface like on the D&L or the Schyulkill River trail but not bad. More of sand and large gravel at spots. They did a fabulous job on the bridges and sure it cost a fortune. Overall very nice quiet and the general store in Uniondale was quaint and a great stop for a cold drinks

Catskill Scenic Trail

OK trail if you like BuMpY!

July, 2016 by nintvel

While the scenery is very nice, the trail itself is not maintained at all well. My bike is a hybrid, and I've never been on a bumpier trail. I rode the section from Stamford east to Grand Gorge (which I thought was a natural feature, but it's just the name of a small settlement!). Good-sized rocks embedded in the trail made the ride quite bumpy. It is also grass-covered in many places. Just east of Grand Gorge, it gets worse - only one very slender lane with tall grass abounding. In sections, the railroad ties were never removed. The ties are rotting and are only about an inch out of the ground, but were totally unmanageable on my hybrid. At this point, I turned around and made my way back to Stamford on road via NY 23.

I reread the trail description in the Rails-to-Trails guide and there was no mention of these difficulties. The online version says nothing about it either. The surface condition is rated a 2. There's no way! 3 or higher, in my opinion.

D&H Rail Trail

Gets Pretty Rough Heading North

July, 2016 by jackybob

We started in Forest City, rode south about 3 1/2 miles or so to the second gate and then turned around and headed north far enough to make for a 30 mile ride. After the first gate going south the trail becomes noticeably more difficult. After the second gate we were no longer equipped to handle the condition so we turned around there. I would say about 7 miles north of the Forest City parking area the trail turns rough again. The last 3 or 4 miles that we rode on the north end were over large rocks and loose coal. Pretty difficult riding for our bikes. The middle part of the trail though was very nice. The county store in Union Dale also a very nice place. So basically if you are rail trail riders like we are and prefer trails like Pine Creek or along the Lehigh, then there are about 10 miles of decent trail here.

Ridgeway Trail

Awesome walk with the kids and dog

July, 2016 by chiefk

We had a terrific walk this summer afternoon. The trail was terrific and an easy flat walk. We walked for about 2 hours and saw many interesting things. We saw numerous butterflies, flowers, berries, and a heron. I wish we lived closer. This would be a repeat.

We did not encounter any ticks, but we were wearing bug repellent.

D&H Rail Trail

Nice from Forest City to Union Dale...

June, 2016 by brookstj

...unfortunately, we entered at Simpson! The surface of the first 2-3 miles (the O&W part) of the trail is like biking up hill in a rocky dry river bed. Don't waste your time with this south end of the trail. Enter the trail at Forest City. We only had time to do 10 miles north and then back. The Forest City to Union Dale section was quite pleasant.

Catskill Scenic Trail

Rural/pastoral

June, 2016 by runped

I rode the western section of a his trail on a late Friday in early June. The first word that comes to mind is rural. The trail is relatively underused and grassy in sections but is very flat and easy to ride. There are times it feels like you're riding across a field. The pastoral farm views is very upstate NY and I agree that a camera is part of the experience. As a rider in the DC/ Baltimore corridor, the openness and privacy was refreshing. I'd recommend it , possibly be mindful of weather and wet conditions affecting the trail but also appreciate the solitude it offers

Vestal Rail Trail

Straight Forward

May, 2016 by lusimcna

Been biking again for a couple years. The Rail Trail's most positive draw it's generous width & it's people, friendly and courteous overall. The trail is clean and well maintained. As expected, it is straight and views are the backs of buildings, but that doesn't make it uninteresting. The Coal House is historically beautiful & the west extension is a lovely more scenic addition!
