Jim Schug Trail

Jim Schug Rail Trail

May, 2019 by bobpren2

Rode the length of the Jim Schug Rail Trail, and then continued on a new extension of the trail from Dryden to Freeville that opened Saturday, 5/11/2019. About 14 miles round trip. I rode a hybrid. No issues. The Jim Schug section of trail was in great shape. No holes or debris on trail. Many wood bridges newly sealed. Many bikers and walkers. A few joggers. Lots of people fishing in the lake, ponds, and stream along side the trail. Saw 5 beaver dams, and lots of wildlife along the trail.
Note: Attended opening ceremonies for the trail extension and told plans are actively being worked to extend trail into Ithaca and connect with the East Hill Recreation Trail (which is another rail trail). Length of trail planned to be about 20 miles.

Black Diamond Trail

Lovely trail

May, 2019 by dianelayo

Easy grade to walk with sunny and shaded areas. It is good that cyclist now give audibles while passing hikers. Perhaps a few pet / waste containers and/or port-a-johns can soon be added.

Rochester, Syracuse and Eastern Trail

Spring 2019

April, 2019 by hockeyhess55

Loved the trail! Very well maintained with plenty of places to park your car. Starting in Fairport, NY and riding to the end (Pannell Rd.) and back was exactly 10 miles for us. Plenty of places to stop along the trip. Attached some photos entitled "Spring 2019"

Auburn Trail

Great trail

March, 2019 by oliverpersir0

Can’t add much to other reviews, very nice trail. Added benefit in Victor it passes by Twin Elders Brewing Co and within a 1/4 mile from Stumbling Monkey Brewing. Nice way to end a ride or take a break on the way. I bike with my dog, Stumbling Monkey is dog friendly so very inviting

Erie Canalway Trail

Between Lyons and Newark

March, 2019 by balppr

This section is very fragmented. You have to walk on the road for long distances. It’s really too bad because there is so much canal history in this stretch I would love to be able to walk it.

Cayuga-Seneca Canal Trail

Ahhh, Swamp

October, 2018 by ghmmvnq

What a great way to get off the road and get on some crushed limestone. Watch that hole in the middle of the trail somewhere around half way.
If it is hot, take a dip in the canal, mmmmmmm... swamp!

Catharine Valley Trail

Beautiful!!!

October, 2018 by waltl97

Way exceeded my expectations! A very beautiful ride. Well maintained. And the free pumpkins along the way we’re a very nice touch. My only complaint is the lack of parking at the end of the trail near Horseheads. Can’t wait to go again. Thank you for everyone’s hard work in making this trail possible.

Jim Schug Trail

Southern end very nice...but there is a challenging other end, too!

October, 2018 by flmark

I am always leery of trails that don’t show ‘biking’ as an activity, just ‘mountain biking’. I have a trail near me that I detest that is maintained by atv people. It has rocks and mud puddles. So I read the few reviews about the trail and was skeptical, because no one said much about biking. But the photos made me hopeful.

The reviews made me realize what I saw as I passed a parking area and obvious trail crossing on Spring House Road just outside Dryden. This was the western/northern part of the trail that is not shown on Traillink, or even on Google bike map. To my east was a river of grass without any indication of roadbed, other than the tunnel of vegetation on both sides. To my west, it looked to be reasonable trek, with 2 visible wheel paths. I started to the west. You can travel the few miles to Freeville along this path.

This is like the unloved stepchild portion of the trail. The grass is mown. The tree limbs are cleared. There are even benches. But you keep asking yourself, ‘why couldn’t they just put down some stone here and make this a reasonable trail?’ The western/northern end alternates between grass, roadbed and the occasional muddy spot. I own a hybrid bike and still found this trail reasonable, but only because I started out early in the day, with the most energy. Slogging through grass saps your strength pretty rapidly.

Heading back to Spring House Road, I asked myself if I could tolerate the grass that lay to the east. I figured I had it in me, and that it would be no more than a mile to connect up to the mapped portion of this trail. That river of grass is probably a half mile (grass always seems longer!) till you indeed link up with the mapped portion. Initially, the trail is wide and obvious, but as you enter Dryden, you suddenly feel like you are in someone’s side yard. On my return trip, I noted that, if approaching from the south, you would have no idea this northern portion exists because of that side yard you find yourself in.

Nonetheless, I kept going …to find MORE grass along the mapped portion, for the first quarter mile. THEN it got decent.

The southern 3.75 miles of this trail are idyllic. The trail bed itself is reasonable for any bike and the scenery is varied and enjoyable. Numerous beaver dams are within feet of the trail. You’ve got lakes and streams and fields and forests. It has to be some of the most enjoyment I have had per mile.

So, highly recommended southern end…and a reminder that there is a western/northern end, if you are up for a challenge.

Lehigh Valley Trail

Rode from Veteran's Park to Lehigh Park

October, 2018 by atmouse

Yesterday we rode on the trail. The surface is very good, There are minimal elevational changes. I wish a couple of trailhead maps were posted for the Rush end of the trail. Mileage signage is excellent.

This is clearly a trail well kept and loved by folks who work hard on it. Bravo for their dedication!

Really a beautiful trail for a sunny October day. We saw a good number of other bikers, dogwalkers, walkers and runners. Everyone shared the trail politely. I see there is a "power trail" of Geocaches along its length as well, but it did not seem disruptive.

Black Diamond Trail

Great Trail (don’t let the name fool you)

October, 2018 by jkillean_tl

The name “Black Diamond” comes from the old railroad on which this trail resides. It is an amazing engineering feat how this trail provides a steady (easy) grade all the way up to the top of Taughannock Falls from lake level. The surface is crushed stone and the entire length is well maintained. It is a real delight (even on a hot day) due to the shade provided by the hillside trees. The trail goes North along the East side of the hill. There are several (8?) road crossings along the way that are well marked, although there is little road traffic.

Erie Canalway Trail

newly paved east of Amsterdam

September, 2018 by bhalt299

About 5 miles of newly paved trail has been open east of Amsterdam to Pattersonville. It is a really nice ride along the river.

Lehigh Valley Trail

Direction Correction

September, 2018 by kcfamily

Great trail. Flat, easy to ride - crosses a few roads but overall pleasant. Direction Correction: The directions say that after taking a left on Phillips Road to go about a mile. Instead go .4 miles for the Auburn Trail and then .5 for the Lehigh Valley Trail.
