Paulinskill Valley Trail

nice quiet ride

July, 2021 by mleblanc4_tl

Rode Thursday. Better to start in from mid point city park. Blair town On both ends of trail last few miles are a bit rough. Due to recent rain a few areas were muddy. Nice ride. Nice shade. Along river and farmlands

West Essex Trail

July, 2021 by alvinpbunao33

Its my kids 1st trail bike experience, they enjoy the trail so much and they want to comeback for another ride

Putnam Trailway

Great Ride

July, 2021 by c.landara2

This is one of the most well-paved trails in the tri-state area so if you love a smooth ride this is the one for you. There’s a small lot for the trailhead in Baldwin Place thats adjacent to a strip mall on 118 that you can use to park. About a 24 mile roundtrip up to Brewster and back. Definitely hillier than the North and South County trails which makes for a good challenge. Mix of shady and sunny portions throughout. Fun ride through Putnam County.

Heritage Trail (NY)

Now a fully paved 18.5 miles.

July, 2021 by steve.schwinn

Road this trail yesterday end-to-end as an out and back starting from the new trailhead parking area in Harriman at the intersection of River Road and North Main Street (portable toilet and bike repair station available).
With the two newer sections at either end the trail is now fully paved for 18.5 miles.
At the current trail end at Palmer Avenue in Middletown there are some signs that the trail will be extended further but no current activity.
The trail is in great shape but could definitely use better signage to help navigate through Goshen. My advice is to use West Main St. as a connector.
The Korean War Memorial in Airline Park in Monroe is worth a stop.

Maybrook Trailway

Wonderful Trail

July, 2021 by wayne7532

Was really surprised as to the condition of trail, was great. The only thing that would be great to see would be mile markers. As a resident of the area was looking forward to when trail would be black topped, now that it is completed its great to ride with a trike, Thanks

Black River Wildlife Management Area Trail

Nice Bikeride

July, 2021 by 5m5qvjs64m

Overall a decent trail that’s flanked by some wetlands, plenty of trees, and actually goes a bit further than the 4 miles listen on here (goes an extra ~1.5 miles past the ‘end’). Some gravel at the beginning of the trail but it quickly turns to just dirt, but isn’t too bad to ride on. Next to a swampy / wetland area for a good portion of the first 2 or so miles, bugs may be more of an issue if you are walking as long as you’re moving it’s not much of an issue.

Maybrook Trailway

Beautiful, smooth and new

July, 2021 by andrew012651

After many years of driving over an hour from NJ to Turner st in Hopewell Junction to ride the Dutchess trail to Walkway Over the Hudson - it was fun to go south / east in the other direction. I rode about 14.5 miles from Hopewell Junction to Holmes, a mile or so past Whaley Lake. That's roughy half of the Maybrook trailway . 29 miles round trip on a perfect day (7/22/21). As someone noted it is uphill 13 of these 14 miles. But hardly noticeable. Since the locomotives can't manage hills, the railroad builders levelled the right of way. Here with the existing track next to you - you're assured of no steep hills whatsoever. About 65 minutes to the turn around point, very leisurely done but flew back to Hopewell Junction at 17 mph and 40 minutes.
Will explore the other half next week starting in Brewster. I expect it to be just as enjoyable as this was.

South County Trailway

Poorly renovated

July, 2021 by brandon.field83

Recently repaved in sections, but done sloppily and left bumpy. The northern half of the trail has a lot of sunken and washboard sections that make it unpleasant to ride. From Van Cortlandt Park and about half way up the trail is nice, but from mid-point to where it connects to the north county trail is a mess.

Old Croton Aqueduct Trail

Fun Trail

July, 2021 by sarah65

As described, this trail varies from a wide gravel path to a single track dirt track with grass. We started in Tarrytown and went south. This is not a trail for a road bike but you are ok on a gravel bike as long as you are comfortable with rough spots and roots. The trail has lots of road crossings and they vary from neighborhoods where the cars have stop signs to steep hills where no one stops. Almost all have large granite curbs that you have to dismount to lift your bike over. As long as you are cautious you are ok. We made it to Yonkers when we turned around due to a raccoon which was blocking the trail and threatening to attack. Others on the trail kept going and one group was going all the way to NYC. We rode a bit of the River Walk as well which looks like it connects the southern part of this trail with the northern.

There is a bathroom at the Keepers House along with a museum and lovely docents who had lots of fascinating information about the aqueduct.

This was a fun outing to try something new but will likely not be on our list of gravel trails we love to ride and go to frequently.

Klara Sauer Trail

Klara Sauer Trail 1.0 Riverfront

July, 2021 by jeromenov

Paid $3.50 parking at Metro on weekday; suggest you park free at the Pete&Toshi Seeger Riverfront Park next door, north. Klara Sauer Riverfront Trail ends south at Dennings Point State Park which on a map shows a 1.2 mile loop trail. Caution: Only the riverfront half of the loop is accessible and only by walking - at some parts too narrow a path for bikes. The 2nd half of the loop is now an ESTUARY. The weeded, rooted, overgrown remnant of trail is trouble for anyone not heeding the warning signs to turn back.

Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail

Heritage Trail (NY)

Hartley rd to Palmer Ave

July, 2021 by andrew012651

Rode from Harriman through Goshen in to the new about 3 and half mile section, from Hartley Rd to Palmer Ave in Middletown. This section as of now (7/6/21) is not on the map here but it exists and is very nice.
