Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

close to home

January, 2021 by lynloman

I live close to one of the sections of the trail so I walk it with my dog often. But we also venture out to the other parts. I’ve actually done all of it twice with many sections much more. It’s a great trail for walking a dog. There are some really beautiful parts and I am looking forward to seeing them through all of the seasons.

Erie Canalway Trail

Mohawk -Hudson (erie)

December, 2020 by bktourer1

New off road section was created along Broadway in Albany after coming out of the tunnel. Watch for the signs for the Empire Trail also

Kiwanis Park Trail

Loved this trail

October, 2020 by kathrynwolfe240

I wouldn’t have found this trail without this app!! Quiet paved trail through the woods for a few miles until you reach the paved path that runs along 18F to Youngstown. A safe path good for a leisurely ride without having to worry about traffic.

Pittsford Trail System (Railroad Loop Trail)

Deceptive Description!

October, 2020 by frankmaciuska

We rode this trail on 10/13/20. As others have stated it varies from level crushed stone to a dirt path with lots of large roots and rocks that is at time less than level. If you are heading west from Shoen Place you are on the Erie Canal trail which is flat and cinder. Once you turn onto the Pittsford Rail trail it turns into a grass path with occasional spots of cinders but is level. As you go behind the shopping centers on Monroe Avenue the trail turns into a hilly, twisted dirt path that is not level and a little treacherous. Mountain or hybrid bikes will do ok but road bikes will have problems. Mileage is also off, one loop is about 5.5 miles, not the 11 listed in the description.

Lehigh Valley Trail - North Branch

Rough

October, 2020 by frankmaciuska

Trail in Genesee Valley Park and East of I390 is pretty good. Trail in Henrietta is street level, rough and poorly marked. We ended up missing the temporary trail at an intersection of five trails. There are also a number of dirt bike cutoffs that are confusing.

Lehigh Valley Trail

Scenic!

October, 2020 by frankmaciuska

(10/8/2020) We started at the Victor end (Lehigh Crossing Park) and ran into a bit of confusion about 1/2 mile from the parking lot. As you approach the catch and release pond on the North side, you want to take the path to the right. This is the actual trail but there is no signage indicating it is the trail; it looks like a patch to a pavilion. If, instead, you go past the pond you will come to an intersection that says you are on the trail but if you try to continue in a Westerly direction the trail is just dirt and there are signs that say it is not a trail and to keep off. If you go back to the intersection you can take the Bie trail North and it runs into the Lehigh. Just be careful of the steep hill you have to go down.intersection and take the Blue Trsil The rest of the trail was great!

Devil's Hole Trail

good trail

October, 2020 by tiago211287

Dirt path and crushed stone path, good for walking the dog. Nice little parking lot on French road. Only did part of the loop, but plan to do more of it when I have more time.

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Great trail for an easy somewhat quick ride

September, 2020 by kbg32

I did this trail on a grey day. The ride was flat, not technical. I did flat about 5 miles in due to a huge thorn. There were lots of debris from trees due to recent storms. My in-laws live here and this trail was the perfect length in distance and time for a ride to get away for a bit. I rode my gravel bike with 40mm tires which was perfect. I only passed two people walking dogs and a couple of other cyclists on hybrids on my return. I would just caution people that there are a number of road and farm road crossings. Definitely slow down and stop to make sure no traffic is coming.

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Great Trail For Walking But Needs Benches

September, 2020 by baqzp7dgsw

My husband and I hiked this from Stanley to Canandaigua and just loved it. Mind you, it’s September and the manure smell wasn’t bad at all at this time of year. We have been walking a trail a day to raise $ for a charity and are up to 9 rail trails so far and over 144 miles to date. This was by far the easiest and kindest to our feet! Lots of soft, well maintained grass and also mossy areas in shadier places. Again, this was from Stanley to Canandaigua. I’d listen to other reviewers for the Phelps side of the trail. BTW, the Stanley to Canandaigua side has the delightful Pooh Corner signs, at least 12 or more! It could use more benches...there is only one.

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Definitely mountain bike material

September, 2020 by ddylla

Ontario Pathways is mostly single track and grass with occasional spots with gravel and stone dust. It is well maintained in terms of mowing and trimming back trees but would definitely suggest using a mountain bike if cycling on either leg of this trail. The trail goes through rural forested areas and pretty farmland. Canandaigua on the west terminus offers the only services on the route.
