We rode round trip from Watkins Glen to about 3/4 of the way to Millport. The signs in Watkins glen could've been better, and I'm not sure why they start you at the marina, other than the parking. The signs rightly point you down Decatur St, but the one to turn left onto Clarence is missing (I can see it on Google maps). Didn't see any near the High School either. Otherwise the surface is well maintained and you're mostly under a shady canopy of trees.
62 miles of peace! very well maintained 12 to 20 feet wide hard packed cinder. no potholes, no clumps of dirt to skid in. Well shaded for us on hot July days. Took us three days to complete, doing out and backs of 50,50, 30 miles. Great views of Pine Creek, mountains......a few bridges to cross. interesting informational boards to read at stops along the way. plenty of bathroom facilities, parking areas along the trail. pass through very quaint hamlets if one desires a snack or drink. And....very friendly people. all the locals we met in the area towns were very nice and helpful. We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Mansfield. Very ,very nice Hampton Inn. Went to two craft brewery restaurants...one in Mansfield the other in Wellsboro. The whole area is pretty. Lots of mountains, hills, streams....highly recommend this bike trail .
Rode from rattlesnake rock parking area to Turkey path, just shy of 15 miles and then back to rattlesnake rock. Slight grade on the way to Turkey path but made for an easier ride back. Lots of wildlife on the trail.
Rode the section between Montour Falls and Millport (4miles one way). From Montour Falls to Millport was uphill the entire way (guessing a 2 -3% grade?) So if you are a leisure rider and prefer flatter trails - or downhill, you will want to start at Millport and ride to Montour (and hopefully have a car or ride waiting for you :-) scenery is beautiful and entirely shaded!
The trail was only extended from Elmira to Lowman recently. The new part is in excellent shape, but there are no amenities between Wegmans and Lowman.
If you make it to Wegmans, Eldridge Park is also worth exploring. Yes, you must cross the highway. Take a walk around the lake or a boat ride. Hopefully, when the pandemic calms down, there will be more to do there.
Wonderful trail! We rode 15 miles out and 30 total. Trail is in excellent shape. We locked or bikes at Turkey Run trail and hoped to hike to the top of the canyon. Saw some beautiful waterfalls but the trail was closed part way up. Family friendly
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.
Directions, parking and trail description all accurate, but there was no fishing access as described. The area as described a out a mile out from the trail head was too steep with rocks and a dense tree and bush line.
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
Well maintained, Wellsboro to Jersey shore downhill. Stayed in Wellsboro and can’t wait for trailhead to connect to town. People friendly along the way. 63 mile trail well worth the drive from NJ. Pennsylvania does a great job with all their trails.
First time riding this. Very well maintained trail, people are friendly and know trail etiquette! Well done on maintaining this trail! The only downside, it’s 2 hrs from my house, but I will Explorer every inch of it on weekends!
