Big Flats Trail

Big Flats, NY

May, 2017 by kpsementilli

May 2017. Trail in good shape, clean, flat, easy stroll or good run. West half is along water with numerous birds and ducks. Open to sky. East half is lined by trees and totally shaded. Free share bicycles available at western edge of trail. Fabulous Sperr Memorial Park half way. Pavilion, fishing, grilling, and biffies available. And a horseshoe pit! Lovely and calm.

Black Diamond Trail

Taughannock to Ithaca

April, 2017 by gdmurphey

You can now ride from Cass Park in Ithaca to Taughannock State park or vice / versa. My recent ride on a recumbent trike was awesome!! Great surface for ALL types of bikes / trikes, beautiful scenery -- A five star trail!!!!

Black Diamond Trail

Fantastic trail

April, 2017 by katherine.lockwood444

This is a great trail for walking or cycling. The grade is gentle, and the stone-dust surface is excellent.

Reviews from prior to the opening of the trail in Fall, 2016 should be ignored, as they reflect the undeveloped condition of the trail.

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.

Black Diamond Trail

Ready by Nov. 2016

October, 2016 by ddylla

The NYS Parks Dept is actively working on the BDT from the northern end. It is partially complete now and expected to be fully completed to Cass Park in Ithaca by late fall 2016. My advice is to wait until late October to ride it. When it's done, it will be a beauty

Auburn-Fleming Trail

Not wheelchair accessible

September, 2016 by gpaul1

Went to this trial last week... I am handicapped and use a light scooter for trails. We tried as railroad trail in Skaneatlis and enjoyed it so we thought we'd try this trail. We should have know we were in trouble at the very beginning but we kept on going. The trail had ties sticking high enough above the ground to cause quite a bumpy ride.I got stuck in between ties and rocks a couple of times .Stuck enough so that I had to get off the scooter (I can only stand for a minute} and my husband had to push the scooter off ties. There were a couple of bridges that were elevated higher then the dirt so we also had trouble at the bridges. There is as section of of trail that is flat with no obstacles and that is toward the end. While on the trail we met people on bikes, walking and motor bikes.It is as nice short trail but it is not suited for the handicapped.

Charlie Major Nature Trail

Handcapped can use this trail

September, 2016 by gpaul1

First of all, I am very handicapped. I cannot stand and I cannot walk but I love to go outside and see nature. I use a scooter to get around. The scooter is light weight because we transport the scooter by car.The shooter is not that sturdy so the ground must be flat without rocks or mud or big railroad ties sticking out of the ground. Also the little scooter does not do hills. Sot his is why it is difficult to find trails that I can use. Well the nature trial was perfect, The ground was flat and stable, no steep hills and the scenery was varied enough that we were not bored with plain trees, although I do love trees too. We have been on rails before where we were stuck in the mud or on stone or up a steep hill so I am very glad we found a safe trail for my scooter and me and my husband.It is strange how some trails are labeled handicapped or wheelchair accessible and there is no way a wheelchair can get over rocks and railroad ties. So people with handicaps can use this trail safely.

Catharine Valley Trail

Awesome ride!

September, 2016 by speedypickup

This was the first rail trail that I've covered, the first of many that I plan on doing. As many others did, I parked at the Millport post office and rode from south to north on this wonderful 12-mile long trail system, spending some time enjoying the views of Seneca Lake and downtown Watkins Glen. However, I would strongly recommend to first-time riders, or riders that are not used to doing a 25-mile loop ride all in one day - START AT WATKINS GLEN and work your way south to Millport. The reason I recommend this is because it would probably be a whole lot easier riding UP the 2% grade the whole way from Watkins Glen to Millport while you're still fresh. Once you make it to Millport and turn around to return to Watkin's Glen, it's mostly downhill the whole way and you can easily pedal along at whatever pace you're comfortable with. As stated, I made the mistake of starting from Millport, which was great for an easy ride the 12 miles to Watkins Glen, but after riding 12+ miles into and around Watkins Glen, I was pretty much spent for the 12 miles back UP HILL to Millport. It was do-able, however, and I loved the entire ride anyway, despite finishing with legs that were on fire and burning like I've never felt before... lol. No pain, no gain, right? Thanks for the beautiful ride through mostly wooded, shaded forests on this well-maintained packed gravel pathway!

Catharine Valley Trail

Nice trail

September, 2016 by firedawg402

Nice trail ride out and back from Watkins Glenn. Little disappointed at the end of the trail in Pine Valley. Trail just falls apart and not much to do there but turn around and head back to WG. Hopefully they will continue this down it the state park.
