Champlain Canalway Trail: Glens Falls Feeder Canal Trail

Warren County bikeway to feeder trail

September, 2020 by SPanny

My wife and I rode the Warren County Bikeway and connected to the Glens Falls Canal trail system on August 31, 2020. The trail meanders a bit through Glens Falls local streets, then we rode on Warren Street a couple of blocks to Shermantown Road and connected to the Feeder Canal Trail. The Feeder Canal trail is a hard packed dirt/stone dust trail that runs along the old canal system…takes you past some old manufacturing plants, working cement plants, etc. Very flat, easy pedaling, you don’t really need a mountain/trail bike. The route we took went around some old industrial areas, past the backyards of some neighborhoods, through some small downtowns. A good amount of shade all along the way. We ended up at the Five Combines park and turned around, so we roughly went 10 miles round trip on this section as well. This is a nice resource for local folks in this area. Definitely check out the Feeder Canal website as it details more about the trail including several different branches you can take for more miles. A nice quiet ride.

Does The Trick

Erie Canalway Trail

Amsterdam area

September, 2020 by edpepper99

Trail near Amsterdam is pretty scenic and has potential to be really nice, however, the trail both East and West of Amsterdam was very bumpy in spots with many tree roots pushing thru the old pavement. Some sections need to be repaved.

Zim Smith Mid-County Trail

A Great Trail

August, 2020 by lughnerson

August 2020
Starting in Round Lake at a wonderful parking lot, I rode and enjoyed the entire trail, which is beautifully asphalt paved. Some nice scenery. Finishing at 5:00 pm the local church was playing more than 5 minutes of various tunes, the longest I have ever hear. Definitely worth a visit.

Champlain Canalway Trail: Schuylerville

Better than the map shows

This short trail surprised me; it is better than you expect. Right along the Hudson River and the lock canal, the scenery is beautiful and the little village is charming. Definitely worth the visit.

Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail

A pleasure to ride

August, 2020 by earth2wayne

Easily the best trail in the Capital region and therefore popular with bikers and walkers alike and gets congested on weekends. Although the trail is mostly flat, there is a steady 300 foot gain in elevation from downtown Albany to Voorheesville, which bikers with single speeds will notice. There are opportunities along the way for food and drink and benches to rest are plentiful.

Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail

Great Trail

August, 2020 by vrvs1964

Great trail, the new connector to the Corning Preserve bike path is a real work of engineering. Fabulous to stay off the roads, and feel safe, while riding from one trail to the other!

Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail

Loved this trail!!

August, 2020 by czajk

Started trail on S. Pearl Street to Voorheesvilles and back and when we got back decided to do the Hudson-Mohawk trail to Watervliet which goes along side of 787 and the river. Having gone to college in Albany it was cool to bike through that area. Trail relatively flat, every enjoyable.. one small section down by 787 confusing but appeared they were still working on it.

Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville Rail Trail (FJ & G Rail Trail)

easy ride, except route 30A.

August, 2020 by danstjacques

We did this trail on pas bikes on a summer Friday starting on the Northen starting point. Parking is good. The trail is fairly flat like most rail trails and is asphalt. The pavement is in very good condition with only a few blemishes. There are lots of street crossings but they are mostly side streets that once served factories now closed. Though a motorist did turn left, no directional, nearly striking my wife who was walking her bike in a crosswalk at the intersection in the apposing direction with the green light. Watching cars cross the bike path at very well marked crossings I got got the impression that they do not encounter alot of bike or foot traffic and the cars don't even slow down. Be aware. Except crossing Route 30A, a 4 lane highway. The crossing is clearly and prominently marked to yield to bike and foot traffic but no one stops. Cars where doing 30-55 mph. It's like playing chicken. The crossing needs a pedestrian controlled traffic crossing light like I see at other trails and crossings in NYS. Now back to the trail. It starts of in a rural area passing peoples clean and trimned yards then abandoned factories, thru the city then back to a rural area. It was nice. Someone else mentioned they had seen police patrols in the area. We did too. We welcomed their presence. They were dealing with a man who was dressed in winter clothes on a hot summer day standing precariously on a bridge railing. They talked him down and away we went. We had lunch in downtown Johnstown, lots of choices there. There are no restrooms on the trail but there areaa few gas stations and a Pricechopper right on the trail that has just about anything you might want and clean restrooms.

Zim Smith Mid-County Trail

Zim Smith - a great trail

July, 2020 by kecrim10mi

Our family frequents the Zim Smith Trail regularly. In fact, we just returned from a bike ride. The trail is excellent; nicely paved and perfect for walking, running and cycling - and even cross country skiing when we have good snow falls in winter. It also is a snow mobile trail in the winter. Early mornings or evenings are best if you wish to avoid a lot of company ; but by and large, people are friendly and considerate. If you are walking or running, most cyclists ring their bell or announce that they are coming by saying “coming on the left”. It also very family and dog friendly. It is great that it now extends to Halfmoon on the South-eastern section. When our daughter was younger, we parked at Shenantaha Park, which has a good size parking are and a playground. It also has a shelter for groups to hold picnics. Presently, we usually park at the newly paved and expanded parking lot by Leah’s Cakery. https://leahs-cakery.com Leah’s has a very friendly and is a great place to get something to eat, although currently you might occasionally have to wait outside since only one customer is allowed in the store due to the Covid pandemic. Also, it is only open Tuesday through Sunday. We hope this helps. Enjoy .

Philip A. Rayhill Memorial Recreational Trail (NH&W Rail Trail)

great multi-section trail (needs bridge over commercial ave!)

June, 2020 by kepaap

This is a delightful trail crossing through the town of New Hartford, NY. It has two major sections; however, each of these is divided by busy roads with cumbersome crossings. (Thankfully there are stop lights, or it would be impossible). It can be used as one long trail, but it might be more pleasant in smaller pieces.
Note: a previous reviewer was confused by the location of "New Hartford Street." This is a distinct location, but the street is largely the home of the Town offices and garage.
