Don’t trust the trail map

August, 2020 by kfvfpwr2hd

We had planned to bike from Geneva to Seneca Falls on this trail, as suggested in a Facebook ad from the state parks department. Included a link to a map showing the portion from Waterloo to Seneca Falls. If you are thinking of doing this be advised that the trail does not exist. The map they offer you is apparently a planning map. Very frustrating the time wasted trying to find the trail in Waterloo before figuring out finally that the trail they promote does not exist. Trail from Geneva to Waterloo was nice enough but come on!

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

A slightly more adventurous rail trail

July, 2020 by walkerrosewood

I rode the 22 mile 'V' on 7/21/20, starting at the free public parking lot in Canandaigua, down to Stanley, and up north to Phelps. From there I followed rt 488 back to the lot in Canandaigua for a 35 mile loop.

This definitely has the topography of a rail trail --mostly flat. But has a different vibe then the well manicured stone dust trails. Though the trail is 5 to 10ft wide, it is grass with a narrow dirt single track for most of its length. Some parts the single track were more grass then dirt. For that reason a it's not as fast a trail, but there are no roots or rocks that would slow down a mountain bike or even a hybrid. In fact, it appears there was a recent effort to mark and remove any roots that traversed the trail. It took me exactly 2 hours to complete the 22 miles on my XC MTB. I'm not in the best physical shape, but I have been cycling a lot lately and kept a decent pace.

The trail travels mostly through farmland, but heavily encased in tree cover for some great shade. You won't see much to look at other then the handful of railroad bridges, and very few other trail users. The 'Park' at Stanley is nothing more then a kiosk and a picnic table. Heading north from the turn in Stanley, you'll have a slight assist from gravity for most of the Eastern Leg. You can make up some time here. After a brief detour on rt 488, the trail starts again on the right. It is well marked with signs, as is all of the trail. Though there are numerous road crossings, the signs were always visible and I was never confused on where to go. The northern most part of the trail heading into Phelps had the most foot traffic. It was covered in fresh stone, not crushed enough to be pleasant, a bit challenging to ride through.

Overall it was a very enjoyable ride. If you like doing long rides for the exercise, but are bored by the canal trail, then you'll like this trail. Just don't bring your road bike. On the other hand, if you're looking for up and down MTB adventures with roots, rocks, drops, and narrow switch backs, you will definitely be bored here.

One tip...be careful going through the narrow gates. I snagged my hand on some thorns trying to squeeze through one of them.

July, 2020 by kristyncutler

This is a very clean, open trail! Paved and has a few places to rest! Great for strollers, bikes or wagons! We also saw 3 trains!!! Very fun!

Mohawk River Trail

Great hike!!

Freshly paved and very accessible! We took a stroller and had no trouble! Walkway is clean and clearly marked. You do cross the road a couple times if you do the whole trail, but they are safe crosswalks!

Oneida Rail Trail

Hidden Gem

May, 2020 by shutterbug313

We started at the trailhead then asked over the bridge toward Wampsville. We stopped at the sheriffs office which was about 1/2mile down the path.the trail is crushed stone and passes wooded areas, the creek and some fields. We will be back to explore more. Only gave it four stars because it is dog friendly but has not trash receptacles and because there is only parking for four vehicles at the trailhead.

Lenox Rail Trail

Nice for Skating!

May, 2020 by seckler16

Perfect spot for inline or quad skating! There are rest points along the trail with benches and the train passes right next to you! The skate park is close and at the beginning of the trail which is nice.

Cato-Fair Haven Trail

ATVs - not bikes

May, 2020 by brucestebbins

The setting is beautiful and the shaded trail a relief from hot sun. Unfortunately the trail is beat up by motorized vehicle traffic and poorly maintained, so you have to pay close attention to dodging large pot holes and the cobbles used for repair. Would be vastly improved with stone dust vs runner crush and stones. Nice ATV trail and riders I met were very considerate.

Oneida Rail Trail

very nice!

May, 2020 by pdonnelly_tl

Lovely path for a bike ride/walk/run! Away from the traffic and in nature. The path was crushed stone but very smooth! If you park on Hubbard you could choose one way for a shorter route (1.5 miles out and back) if you had little ones or the other if you wanted a full 2 miles (out and back) you could go the other way!

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Great Trail

April, 2020 by dandkanda

I parked in Phelps, the northern terminus of the trail. There were a lot of pedestrians and not many bikers. It smells like manure on the whole trail. When I biked on 488, it was really hard to find the trail off of Orleans Road. There's lots of trails that branch off the main trail. Very rocky and bumpy. I'm really glad I took my hard tail mountain bike and not my hybrid bike. Are the trails that branch off the main trail mountain bike trails. I did an hour and 20 minutes on this trail.
