Genesee Riverway Trail

Many reviews and trail descriptions fail to make mention of how suitable the trail is for various bikes. My wife and I travel with small, folding, electric bikes, with 12 inch wheels. This was perfect for our bikes. A very memorable ride!

Big Flats Trail

A quiet nice little trail

October, 2021 by bdunkle

On a trip to Watkins Glen NY, my wife, son and myself thought this trail might be a good way to spend a little extra time. We weren't expecting much with a straight, flat and short trail, but the discovery of the adjacent lake and park midway was a rewarding surprise on our late afternoon bike trip. The walkers we encountered were friendly, and the path wide enough to accommodate multi-use.

Cayuga-Seneca Canal Trail

Very nice trail. Open and clear with nice views of foliage and water. We will return.

Black Diamond Trail

Beautiful

September, 2021 by auhohl

Be prepared to go steadily uphill from Cass Park. So much fun riding downhill. Beautiful views of several waterfalls.

Erie Canalway Trail

Riding into Utica

September, 2021 by mdaugherty

As you come into Utica, there is a construction area that would benefit from some temporary signs. You ride down a small hill into a wide open area. Once you do this, you will find that there is no sign that should direct riders to go left. Going left will take you across railroad tracks, and to one of the locks. You cross the lock and rejoin the trail. If you make the mistake and take a right instead of going left, you will be forced to ride into Utica on a busy road. Other than needing a sign at this location in Utica, the trail is amazing. We road from Syracuse to Albany.

Catharine Valley Trail

great biking

September, 2021 by ztf4qzt7kr

We did the whole trail on our electric bikes. Never passed anyone. Bring along a lunch, great spots to stop.

Cato-Fair Haven Trail

Wonderful trail (on a mountain bike)

September, 2021 by brantleywise1

I almost skipped this great trail due to the bad reviews, but it was quite nice. Beautiful forest, wetlands and a few peeks of farmland. Make no mistake, it's nothing like zooming down the Erie towpath on perfectly smooth stone dust, but it would be manageable for anyone with a little mountain bike experience. There were too many mud puddles to count (some trail-wide) on my ride. You could either blast through them like a ten year old and come back looking like a Tide commercial or practice your bike handling around the edges. Like any mtn. bike trail, you'll need to keep your eyes on the trail and be ready for occasional half-buried rocks. Try to go when it's dry and expect a slower pace with lots of maneuvering and it's a good ride. *** The first 1/2 mile or so starting at the Fair Haven Fire Dept. is awful. You can skip it by road riding on Fair Haven Rd (94) between the fire dept. and Simmons Rd at the sawmill (trail is 100 ft. from Fair Haven Rd. at this point). It's only a mile and not busy at all.

Keuka Outlet Trail

Keuka Trail from Dresden to PennYan

September, 2021 by mpsartell_tl

In mid September, when my husband and I were walking the trail, we found the mosquito population from Dresden to the parking lot for Seneca Mills Falls to be horrible. I would never hike in that area at that time of year again. Even mosquito repellent hardly helped. However, hiking from the Seneca Mills Falls parking lot to Seneca falls is lovely and the falls is lovely too.

Black Diamond Trail

At end of 60 mile ride we took this trail south into Ithaca. It seemed to be all downhill or maybe I was delirious!

Lehigh Valley Trail

Problems addressed

September, 2021 by jimconboy

I posted a review of a segment of the trail which I believe is unsafe. At the same time I contacted the agency that has responsibility for maintaining the segment. They immediately responded and have since, according to them, addressed the problems of surface degradation.

Hojack Trail

Great Ride

September, 2021 by louis.schweigert

Wife and I took this gem and it is awesome. Beautiful scenery and not too travelled. My wife’s hybrid bike did fine. Very well kept, my only wish is that it went to the lake. Overall very satisfied. Drop in at North Pond Park that’s a nice ride as well.

Lehigh Valley Trail

Dangerous segment

September, 2021 by jimconboy

On August 20, 2021 I rode the trail between Fishell Rd and W River Rd, a 3.2 mile segment. It is dangerous, the erosion has caused the surface to be uneven and very loose. This segment needs immediate maintenance. I am an experienced cyclist and was riding a "gravel" bike.
