Flooding at the southern end.

To add to the previous review, on 11/3 the trail was completely flooded at Jefferson Lake, just north of the Waterloo Road parking area.

Wallkill Valley Rail Trail

Great summer ride

November, 2022 by senseibarb

We rented bikes in new paltz to go from there up past Rosendale trestle The rest was closed but that was ok. We past some interesting caves with cold air which was a nice surprise. It is finely crushed gravel which is an up grease from mud; however check your bike company to make sure your tires are appropriate for this type of gravel Definitely picturesque, quiet and peaceful Would highly recommend

North Shore Rail Trail

ok ride

November, 2022 by senseibarb

Yes the path is new, surrounded by greenery and tuck back from the main road. My biggest complaint is the amount of crossroads at the beginning in smith town. Too much interruptions AND You really need to be careful even when you hit the rider alert button for crosswalks The ride itself is nice, but no facilities on path.

Heritage Trail (NY)

Love it!

Beautiful bike trail to enjoy the fall colors. Love it so much. Highly recommend.

Timp-Torne Trail

great hike!

October, 2022 by rozzy_rocks

This trail is well marked and is a great combination of climbing steep rocky sections and walking flat sections with decent views. For someone out of shape, this hike is a great workout with plenty of resting spots.

North County Trailway

beautiful & well kept trail!

October, 2022 by 9kw466jjyr

This trail is great despite the middle aged men speeding past you at 90 mph on their LeMonds. I’m not sure if they are bike messengers or just “has beens” trying to live out their dreams of being in the Tour De France, but their speed and shrill shouts of “Left, Left, Left!” piercing the crisp fall air can really ruin what is otherwise a beautiful and relaxing family outing.

The perfect place to stroll and enjoy fall colors.

Bronx River Greenway

Nice trail

October, 2022 by dd5rz2q65y

Nice trail for running, and it wasn’t too crowded. There were a few scenic areas but I was expecting more. Also if hilly around the start. And decent parking.

Paulinskill Valley Trail

Watch out for horse poop

October, 2022 by choops104

People use the trail for horse back riding, not sure why the horse can't have a poop bag on them, or why riders do not have to clean it up. This trail should be for everyone. Great place to get shoes covered in horse poop and good luck on a bike you will be covered in it.

Larkin State Park Trail

Two very different trails in one...

October, 2022 by shannon66

Although it's an easy, beautiful, and relatively flat trail overall, the Naugatuck-to-western-outskirts-of-Naugatuck part of the Larkin Bridle trail is a little more challenging, isolated, and wild, whereas the west-of-Naugatuck to Southbury part of Larkin Bridle is wider, flatter, and more accessible.

Personally, I am not big on technical/single track bike riding, so I experimented with Larkin Bridle until I found just the right section to become my regular ride. For me, that's definitely the flatter, wider, less technical portion. These coordinates (41.474814, -73.117086) will take you to a very quiet, non-residential road with a turnout that allows for three or four cars to park in front of the wide gate that marks the path. (There's a marshy pond nearby where you might hear ducks quacking.) This is the point on Larkin Bridle where it become an excellent trail not only for comfort-minded fitness bike riders like me, but also a great walking path, especially for my dad, who is older.

From the coordinates above to Southbury it is about 5.5 miles, one way. You'll be on a wide path with a mix of hard pack dirt and gravel. Very easy and flat, unless it's been raining for a few days, in which case some parts can get a bit muddy. Overall, this part of the path is shady and well maintained with beautiful, tall trees, occasional bodies of water, and interesting rock formations. Just gorgeous! On this part of the trail, you can relax and pass people easily. Would be wonderful for a post-Thanksgiving dinner walk or a ramble with the dog. The Naugatuck-to-western-outskirts of Naugatuck portion of Larkin Bridle, by contrast, while still very doable on a bike, is much more weedy, woodsy, and rocky, with brief portions that have very steep ups-and-downs near road crossings. For a more relaxing experience, I recommend the west-of-Naugatuck to Southbury portion, starting at the coordinates above and heading toward Southbury.

Sandy Hook Multi-Use Pathway

Beautiful ride with so much to see

October, 2022 by bestesbrau56_tl

Went on OCT 6 on an absolutely beautiful fall day. The trail is easy but there are so many side trails and that you keep riding through Sea Breeze that we put in 18+ miles in two hours. Lots of access to virtually empty beaches on both sides of the peninsula for relaxing and fishing. No swimming though. We plan to come back to not only ride again but to bring the beach and the fishing gear. It is a gem in one of the most highly populated areas of the US.

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail

Very nice

October, 2022 by dcsnyder

Rode Plainville CT to CT/MA border. Northern section. I like that you go through many towns on the lower half then out in the country from Simsbury north. Beautiful scenery. Paved the whole way, some sections with roots coming through.
