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.
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.
Beautiful bike trail to enjoy the fall colors. Love it so much. Highly recommend.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Paved trail, it’s clean, 10+ miles long. Well maintained. Great views and you may see turkeys, deer and ground hogs/ gofer not sure what they were. There are bugs out that will hit you in the face and stick to your body will riding
There are too many street crossings to safely take a bike on this trail.
I lived in Poughkeepsie for 5 years in the early 2000's and I used to imagine how awesome it would be to convert some of the abandoned rail lines that criss-crossed the city and the region. Since then, they have done exactly that and I find that the William Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail is the best trail I've ridden yet! It is a nice easy trail, and with plenty of other bikers, walkers, joggers, etc... It is excellent how the trail links up with the walkway-over-the Hudson (which was simply an abandoned hulk when I lived there!) and the Maywood Rail Trail to the south. County Exec. William Steinhaus, et al - great job!
