Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

Improvements just about done!!!

May, 2020 by HDSears

Did the route from Lanesborough yesterday, May 30th 2020, from the Old Lanesborough Mall through Adams to near the North Adams line where the trail ends right before you join Rt 8 across from Speciality Minerals. The lower end is not yet finished, but all ready for black top final and would expect it to be done by end of July at latest. Lower part is definitely passable until they start final pave. You can also do the route from North to South and cut out part of the unfinished section by exiting at Old State Road and coming into the Old Lanesborough Mall on the North end. The parking area below the Mall is closed and you must park in the Old Mall anyway. I didn't see any new action yet on the link going on up into North Adams, but if you haven't ever done so, it's a short jaunt from the current north trail end at route 8 up to where you can cut over by the VoTech school and come all the way into North Adams and Mass MOCA, but since I knew the brewery there would be closed, I didn't give it a shot.

Catskill Scenic Trail

Always a great experience

My daughter and I are always using the trail. Last week we rode our bikes from South Kortright to Bloomville and had a great time. It's so beautiful. So lucky to have this in our backyard.

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

New sections open or nearly open

May, 2020 by billblum

Wow! Once open, the Undermountain Road to Millerton gap is going to be spectacular. I note that the northernmost section going south from Undermountain Road to Boston Corners Road, about one mile long, is now open and beautiful. The next two miles going south, to White Horse Crossing Road, includes a gorgeous mile long raised section going through a beautiful wetland. Parts, including that section, are currently paved but construction is ongoing. Later this season this will be the place to ride!!

Champlain Canalway Trail: Schuylerville

easy trail

Lots of water. Flat. Good for dogs. Island was coo

Black Bridge Trail

A nice short trail

May, 2020 by lughnerson

I have ridden it several times. At the south end it links to the Albany Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail, though the signage is lacking. The north end in Waterford is very scenic and you can access another unpaved trail in the village that runs along the old Erie canal and northword. The best is being there for the Tugboat festival near Labor Day weekend. Waterford is a great little village.

Ashokan Rail Trail

Stunning Beautiful

May, 2020 by lughnerson

I have ridden my bike there twice, once in the fall, once in spring. The trail itself is hard-crushed gravel, very firm and nice. I think all but the skinniest racing tires would be fine on this trail. It is very popular with families, couples, singles, fisher folks and birdwatchers, whether walking, biking, or X-country skiing. There are signs explaining the historical development of the reservoir and area. Bring binoculars and snacks. All 3 parking lots are close to local attractions and amenities.

It is a mostly a flat trail with scenery to take your breath away. At the eastern end, with the largest parking lot near the Stewarts shop on Route 28, one is closest to the waters of the Ashokan reservoir. The western end has a steel bridge over the Esopus creek that fills the reservoir, and further on a wooden bridge that crosses a marsh filled with wildlife. The parking lot for the western end is on a side road after crossing a bridge. Between them a good parking lot is visible right on Route 28 and the straight trail is sometimes close to Rt 28, sometimes closer to the meandering shore of the reservoir, visible at varying distances through the trees.

Now, with the Covid-19 shutdown there is less land and sky traffic so it can be very quiet when out hiking and biking.

Erie Canalway Trail

My favorite section of the Erie Canal is when I bike from Tow path in Pittsford to Long Pond in Greece where the gravel begins. The whole trail is asphalt and it's really smooth. It's a good 30 miles I would say.

Bog Meadow Brook Nature Trail

beautiful big trail, but also difficult for bikes

April, 2020 by logan_brennan

Took a walk on this with my 4-year old daughter. The bog-half of this trail is beautiful; nice boardwalks get you close to some wetlands and wind you through the bog. The other 2/3 is a straight rail trail that still has tracks buried in the path, which can be uncomfortable at times and definitely prevent bikes and scooters (if you’re looking to bring your little one on their bike). Our toddler made it 3/4 of the way one way before wanting to head back, so we didn’t see the other end.

Beautiful rail trail.

Spring Run Trail

great short walk for kids

April, 2020 by logan_brennan

Did this walk yesterday with my 4 year old on her scooter and my wife jogging next to her. One mile in and one mile out of well-maintained over trail. Nice mix of woods and wetlands. Perfect springtime trail to see and hear all the birds. The beer distributor near the trailhead was a bonus!

Erie Canalway Trail

Erie Canalway Trail

March, 2020 by bktourer1

Free parking can be found at a small park in Rennseller with toilets nearby,
Follow the RT 5 & 9 signs to the ped. bridge over the river which takes you directly onto the path. There are signs for the Mohawk / Hudson Bikeway.
The map is out of print but online. You will need to get off trail and ride on road for 4 miles before connection to the pathway. Side street at blue kiosk will take you to Cohos Falls (food nearby). About 12 miles to Falls.

Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville Rail Trail (FJ & G Rail Trail)

Vail Mills and Broadalbin Trail

March, 2020 by kz1000g

The trail is straight and level. Pavement is in good shape. Most of the trail is in the shade of trees in the summer. Lots of walkers, but they will move over if they hear you (use a bell or horn). Also a lot of dog walkers during the Tourist Season. Beware of doggy landmines.
The longest section is 1 miles. The other half mile is a scarey crossing of Route 30.

Across the road from the Information Center is a Dunkin Donuts. Good place to have coffee and wait for a friend or use the Rest Room.

The east end of the trail has a Stewarts. That gives you a Rest Room and some healthy snacks, water, and drinks.

Lots of parking at the Information Center.
