Loantaka Brook Reservation Trail

Nice but icy

February, 2024 by hrowan1029

We went to this trail, beginning right next to Seaton Hackney Stable, because we knew it had a paved path and we had a lot of snow. We didn't know the trail would be covered with ice and snow and after a very short walk we decided it would be wise to turn around before one of us fell. We intent to go back when the weather gets warmer because it's a beautiful park and trail.

Old Erie Path

Hidden Gem - caution in Sparkill

February, 2024 by jeffrey.r.schmoyer

Old Erie is a unique and lovely gravel path distinct from the Clarke and Esposito paved trails. Easy to miss but very worthwhile IF you have the right bike. Somewhat chunky gravel and a few ruts so recommend at least 38mm tires. In exchange for bumps you get forest, nice elevation changes, beautiful views of the river, and a direct path connect to both downtown Nyack (shops, eats) and the new Mario Cuomo bridge path. But VERY important: the start of trail in Sparkill is a very dangerous 5-way intersection with blind spots... DISMOUNT here, wait, listen, walk it across.

Total Mess Do not waste Your Time

Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway

Nice and long bike path

December, 2023 by kzhang20000

During the summer, there are more than 2 stops along the way you can buy drinks and food.

27 mile total. On my way back, I was riding against the wind, so tired......

Vanderbilt Motor Parkway

It's not bad

December, 2023 by kzhang20000

It's not too long, but watch out for sharp turns and steep climb onto the cross over bridge.
Also there were junkies in the Allie pond park parking lot asking people for money.

Columbia Trail

Columbia Trail

November, 2023 by thejake91739

On an especially brisk, early morning weekday in late October, I had the pleasure of riding my bike on this beautiful trail. There were plenty of walkers and joggers for the first couple of miles, and then me on my bike.

I started at the High Bridge trailhead. The gravel trail made me wish I had my old mountain bike, but after awhile you get used to it and realize your bike isn't going to fall apart. My hybrid did just fine. Just beyond Califon the trail became hard packed dirt and allowed for a smoother, faster ride. Due to time constraints I only went eleven miles out and then back, so I didn't get to discover what the last four or five miles are like.

The Raritan River views are absolutely amazing, and the fall colors dazzling! The sounds of the river and the chirping birds are an additional joy. After Califon the terrain is more suited to land occupied by charming homes and farmland, but there is still plenty of woodlands and river. If I hadn't stopped so many times to take photos and video, I probably could have done the full thirty mile round trip.

After a couple of hours and eleven miles I turned back. It was then that I started passing many, many bicyclists. I think they preferred the warmer temps of late morning to avoid the frozen fingers I had to endure. In fact, I was surprised at how many cars were in the High Bridge parking lot with their bike racks and many, like this Californian, with out of state plates which attests to this trail's fame and popularity. I'm just speculating, but this trail must be super busy on weekends.

What a gem of a trail! A+

William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail

William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail

November, 2023 by thejake91739

After starting in New Paltz on the Hudson Valley Rail Trail and then crossing the Walkway Over The Hudson, I continued on to the Dutchess Rail Trail. I only went a few miles before turning around and heading back to New Paltz for a 21 mile ride.

The portion I rode is for the most part heavily forested, so if you like colorful trees in the fall or shade in the summer you'll love this. The trail is easy to ride, in amazing condition, and on a weekday morning in mid October lightly used. I especially appreciated the use of wood fencing in many spots which was the perfect architectural touch for this trail. Another highlight was Morgan Lake with its lovely swans and colorful trees reflecting upon the water.

I wish I would have had the time to venture further into the beautiful rural areas, but time was of the essence. I guess I have a reason to return and do the full length next time!

Vanderbilt Motor Parkway

Entire trail now reopened, repaved, with historic signs

November, 2023 by tom0153

The history of the Long Island Motor Parkway (as it was first recalled) is revealed with signage along the length of the Parkway, including the site of the Jacob Johnson Family Burial Ground who appears in the 1830 Census as a "free colored man." At least two of his sons served in a segregated unit in the Civil War. He was a farmer in the area until retirement when he lived very close to Alley Pond.
The length of the entire park roadway, designated as part of the Greenway, has been repaved.
Review other park features when you come. In another area of the larger Alley Pond Park is found the oldest and tallest tree in NYC, already growing at the time of George Washington, known as the Alley Pond Giant. Hiking trails throughout the Park are well maintained.

Maybrook Trailway

Partial Trailway closure

September, 2023 by steve.schwinn

This is still a great trail but currently (9/2023) the Trailway is closed between the Stormville parking area on South Green Haven Road and the road crossing at Depot Road due to a partial washout (see pic).
There is a bypass using Route 216 (busy and not always good shoulders).
People have gone around the barricades and used the Trailway. Please use caution if you do so.

William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail

Hopewell Junction start on WRS Dutchess Trail

September, 2023 by bsnicholson63

Very nice 7 miler tonight just before sundown. Trail was very clean and only lightly populated as we headed south for 3 1/2 miles and then back to the parking lot.

Too bad that Daddy O's had closed their kitchen when we returned. Had to go to the Redline Diner to get a post-ride meal on a Sunday night.

Road crossings were well marked and use automatic yellow flashing lights for traffic to be aware of bikers approaching the crossing. A nice feature.

Joseph M. McDade Recreational Trail

Not a trail for anything except a mt. bike with suspension.

September, 2023 by julienneandmom

I can't believe I'm forced to give this trail two stars. It's not due to the location, the scenery or lack of variety. The trail gets five stars for these features. It's due to the condition of the trail. It's HORRIBLE!! Someone got the bright idea to put very large gravel down on the trail. which turned the trail into one that is only suitable for a mountain bike with suspension. Even then, it's not an easy ride. Yes, there are sections that are flat, but there are also sections that are so steep that you're forced to get off your bike to get up it. Though I'm not any sort of professional biker, I am someone who takes 70 mile road bike day trips on a regular basis. It took me five hours to go 36 miles - 18 miles out and 18 miles back. I had planned to do the entire trail out and back. If I'm having issues with a trail, there's good reason. I took my regular mountain bike (no suspension) and my body was shaken all over the place due to the trail condition. Until the trail condition is resolved, I sadly won't be returning to this trail again. It's a darn shame. On a positive note, I did see a bobcat!

* The trail description of the trail on the national park web page, the official Rails to Trails book for PA and other sources need to be updated to reflect the true condition(s) of the trail.
