Black Diamond Trail

Great Way to Pass a Beautiful Day

July, 2020 by dsterf62

In the fall of 2018, I was camping at Taughannock Falls State Park, and rode this trail into Ithaca. The trail was rural and shaded, made of crushed gravel and well maintained, with a gentle uphill grade on the way back.

There is a nice park called the Ithaca Children's Garden at the end of the trail in Ithaca, and many other trails and walkways in Ithaca as well.

Between the trails, the city, the parks, and all the waterfalls, you could easily spend a lovely day here, which is just what I did. I look forward to coming back to this area, in the near future.

Auburn Trail

Well groomed, perfect for a long ride.

June, 2020 by walkerrosewood

I rode this on my Mountain Bike on 6/28/2020. Weather was warm, bright, and clear. Some of the sections were wonderfully shaded. Very well maintained, some new sections, and looks like continuing maintenance. Crushed stone trail is immaculate, so nice that I saw a few folks on road bikes. It's moderately trafficked but plenty wide enough to handle it. If I didn't know better, I'd say this whole trail was just groomed yesterday. Hardly a skidmark in the stone, freshly planted grass along the sides, and places where the shoulder drops off there are wood fences that still smell like sawdust. Flat, straight, and relatively boring if not for some nice scenery. Overall a nice stretch of trail if you're going for endurance.



Starting at Powder Mills Park, there is a small parking area just east of the trail head by 0.1 miles on Woolston rd that would fit maybe 4 cars. There is more parking further in the park, but you'll have to deal with some hilly roads to get to the trail. Heading east bound, (south east really) it starts off a little downhill, but after that the entire rest of the way is ever so slightly uphill. A fact that was imperceptible until I turned around and realized the return trip felt easier. The internet later informed me it's a 1% grade for most of the 11 miles. Which amounts to about a 200ft ascent. Nothing really. Road crossings are fairly frequent, but none are major roads. However, I recommend heeding the stop signs, because the intersections are blind, especially from the perspective of the ones driving the 3000lb hunks of metal.



The trail map here on is not up to date, and neither is the satellite view on google maps. Just west of Finn's tap room the map shows the trail fizzles out and there is a road detour. However, the stone trail now follows along the railroad tracks and goes straight through. Behind Finn's is a big lot that looks like a nice place to park if you are looking to do half of the trail.



Continuing east, you get to the next break on google maps. There is a road detour of .4 miles on break of day road. It's well marked with signage and easy to find the trail again. The trail actually does continue through, although a small sign says "foot trail only". I was curious about it, so on my way back I took the foot trail. In this small section was stone (not crushed), grass, dirt, and a little wooden bridge with some pedestrians that gave me a dirty look. (probably deserved). A fun little MTB trail in my opinion, but probably best to go to nearby Dryer Road park if that's what you're after.



The trail map ends at Mertensia Park, but it actually continues to Rt 332, which adds a little less then 2 miles. Similarly well groomed and marked. Mapping it out after the ride says it was 10.8 miles from start to end. However, there is nowhere to park at the very eastern end of the trail. I suspect this section was added to give access to Mertensia Park from the tract housing developments that are half finished there.



While there are some backyards in view, in many sections you'll forget you are near residential areas, if it weren't for the power lines. The wildlife was out in full force during my trip. In addition to numerous birds and small critters, in two places I saw rabbits. There was a 2 foot garter snake enjoying a sunny spot on the trail. Luckily I didn't run him over! Then two deer hopped out about 8 feet in front of me. They ran parallel with me down the trail for almost a full minute before ducking off to the right.

Catharine Valley Trail

Sunday 5/31

June, 2020 by linerunner98

Good trail... we started from a parking lot near the lake. The signs early could be a little clearer. One might consider starting at Watkins Glen HS. Some of stretches were absolutely great. Forest canopy was really nice. We were nearing the end of the trail when the weather abruptly changed not for the better. All in all a very enjoyable ride. A

Oneida Rail Trail

Hidden Gem

May, 2020 by shutterbug313

We started at the trailhead then asked over the bridge toward Wampsville. We stopped at the sheriffs office which was about 1/2mile down the path.the trail is crushed stone and passes wooded areas, the creek and some fields. We will be back to explore more. Only gave it four stars because it is dog friendly but has not trash receptacles and because there is only parking for four vehicles at the trailhead.

Lenox Rail Trail

Nice for Skating!

May, 2020 by seckler16

Perfect spot for inline or quad skating! There are rest points along the trail with benches and the train passes right next to you! The skate park is close and at the beginning of the trail which is nice.

Cato-Fair Haven Trail

ATVs - not bikes

May, 2020 by brucestebbins

The setting is beautiful and the shaded trail a relief from hot sun. Unfortunately the trail is beat up by motorized vehicle traffic and poorly maintained, so you have to pay close attention to dodging large pot holes and the cobbles used for repair. Would be vastly improved with stone dust vs runner crush and stones. Nice ATV trail and riders I met were very considerate.

Keuka Outlet Trail

Great Mix of Industry and Nature

May, 2020 by laurenhinish

The trail was great! We went in the beginning of spring so the trees were just budding, which gave us tons of sun. Probably a bit more shady in the summer. The water is a really pretty light green blue color. And the remnants of the old mills are awesome.

Oneida Rail Trail

very nice!

May, 2020 by pdonnelly_tl

Lovely path for a bike ride/walk/run! Away from the traffic and in nature. The path was crushed stone but very smooth! If you park on Hubbard you could choose one way for a shorter route (1.5 miles out and back) if you had little ones or the other if you wanted a full 2 miles (out and back) you could go the other way!
