Great for a walk or run

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

East Greenbush to Nassau

September, 2021 by kbuffaline

Loved this ride. We rode from Columbia Plaza in EG to Nassau and back. Casual riding took 1 1/2hrs to get to Nassau (and much longer to get back- as it was our first ride this year-do we were tuckered out!). Lol. Miller RD (exit 10) Schodack has a convenient store which is about 1/2 way. So a great “pit-stop”. As was “smilees” ice-cream in Nassau and a Taco place “Diablos ?”sp across the way in Nassau.

Wallkill Valley Rail Trail

Great Trail. Rosendale Trestle and south.

September, 2021 by tekyma

We rode this trail for about 5 miles from the kilns, across the trestle, and south past farms and shaded trail. It was lovely. We quickly came upon a cave which was emitting cold air and stopped to take it in. No signage to inform you of this wonder. We brought a lunch and were disappointed to find no benches for the entire stretch. I just wanted to point these 2 things out as a way to improve the experience for others

Heritage Trail (NY)

Car in a ditch?

September, 2021 by dralbin888

I love this trail and the scenery. But there is a ditch with a crashed car at the bottom. The car is pretty old. Maybe late 70s or early 80s. It's between the parking space 17 park and ride lot in Monroe and the overpass. There's a green gate blocking the ditch. I would love to know more information about it if anyone knows.

Old Croton Aqueduct Trail

Maybrook Trailway

Smooth ride with water and wetlands views

September, 2021 by wrogers1

Miles of secluded, smooth, paved trail. We were there on a Tuesday and hardly met anyone. Typical rail trail views with woods and rocks, but the view of the lake and wetlands was very pleasant and broke it up. Surprised to find the white blazes of the Appalachian Trail where it crossed the bike path. Starting in Hopewell Junction heading south east there is a slight incline until Whaley Lake. Not a problem, just made it easier on the way back. After the Whaley Lake continuing south there is a slight decline which did make it a a bit of a grind on the way back but really nothing to be afraid of. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. The only reason I did not give this trail 5 stars was because of lack of and condition of bathroom facilities. When you are of a certain age this becomes more important to you :-) We did the William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail, Walk Over the Hudson, and Hudson Valley Rail Trail the previous day, making for a nice mini-vacation. We travelled 3 hours for this trip and it was worth it.

Larkin State Park Trail

Great trail needs a little maintenance on the 6 to 8 mile mark

August, 2021 by albert18

Found a 20-mile gem on the TrailLink app. Great ride until you hit the 6 1/2 mile mark to the 8-mile mark. It’s all mud and horseshit, but I was able to get through it. The first 6 miles are great for the family after that; advance riders only

Pequonnock River Trail

Amazing Trail, wonderful community

August, 2021 by albert18

I have done the trail four times so far, and it is a great experience. I usually take route 25 up to Monroe, hang a right off of 25 to the park, and park my car there. The last leg of the north end takes you to an abandoned factory, and it’s a little sketchy. I don’t recommend it. But if you take the south route all the way down to Trumbull round-trip at 15 miles it is beautiful. The paths are extensive, and as a bicyclist, you could call out to everyone if you were on their left or right. It’s a very safe and fun trail for the whole family.

Bronx River Greenway

Awesome except at 233rd St and Oak St. Entrances

August, 2021 by inbox1

Skip those two segments. Boring. If you insist on checking those out, do so on a bright, sunny day. They both have a spooky, remote feel.

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

Quiet farm land

August, 2021 by borchardtdebra

I rode from Wassaic to Millerton. It’s a quiet ride mostly through farm land. A slight ascent there which made for an easy return. Free parking on the weekends at Wassaic. The town of Millerton made the ride worth it. A really cute town with places to eat and shops.

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

Bodacious New Section, 8 Miles

August, 2021 by wayne7532

This is a bodacious new section, 8 mile, for trike riders, Catrike. Nice and smooth and flat, 1% grade. Shaded for nice cool ride. Also nice to ride a trail that other riders show proper manners when riding up on another rider, coming up on left. Yes a BODACIOUS TRAIL
