Dryden Rail Trail

Epic rail trail

June, 2024 by jthurston4

I am on a quest to complete a lot of the rail trails by bike on this app in the upstate NY area. So far I have completed most of the Rochester and Syracuse trails. This sets the bar high as one of the best trails I have done. It has a lot of diverse surface types and scenery. Rode it on 650b x 47mm road plus tires. I wouldn’t recommend going much smaller in width. Some sections can be a bit bumpy. Excellent trail! Highly recommend

Catharine Valley Trail

Okay, but poorly marked

June, 2024 by newjulie7

We found signage to be somewhat lacking and a single track at certain parts. Could be better with some grooming.

Catharine Valley Trail

Great trail...well marked and fun ride. Bathroom services along the way and places to eat between Montour and Pine Vally.

Cayuga Waterfront Trail

A Safe Ride for families.

April, 2024 by bmanaudio

The Cayuga Waterfront Trail is an all asphalt trail. We were able to keep the bikes clean and my 8 year old is safe from traffic. I found that if we travel Cass Park loops by the dog park,boat docks, inlet to Farmers Market, past the city golf course to Stewart Park loop and back, it is about 10.0 miles. Sorry for the long sentence but there’s a lot to see.

Odessa-Hector Rail Trail

Hayes Hill Rd

April, 2024 by mydonna1968

We did this trail again today. I recommend coming in from Hayes the trail is much smoother. And just as pretty.

Odessa-Hector Rail Trail

Pretty

April, 2024 by mydonna1968

Nice walk. Just watch your step. There are lots of big rocks up the center of the trail. We walked along the edges and did ok. Worth it! Saw a few waterfalls. Beautiful.

Odessa-Hector Rail Trail

Pretty trail

December, 2023 by panama

We’re 70-ish. We walked about 1/2 mile out, but had to turn around and head back to our start point at Texas Hollow. The railroad ballast surface made it too difficult walking for us. Younger walkers and fat tire cyclists may handle the surface better. Nevertheless, kudus to the local trail community for all the work to provide another off road place to enjoy nature.

Keuka Outlet Trail

Lots of places on the trail where it is almost all grass with just a dirt rut the size of a tire. Very bumpy, lots of rocks and lots of walnuts when we rode in October. Wouldn't ride this with a street bike. Waterfalls were beautiful.

Erie Canalway Trail

Medina NY to Gasport NY

September, 2023 by mconlon1

About a 45 minute ride on the Erie Canal path ,starting at the Medina lift bridge, through farmland and villages (Middleport, Gasport) herons that are absolutely not afraid of you! Beautiful in the fall!

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Too many roots

September, 2023 by djudd1

My husband and I started in Canandaigua and almost reached Stanley before turning around. The single track trail was nice and flat in places, we would be roll big along and then bam! hit a section with roots. The scenery was nice but we will not return because of the bumpy ride.

Keuka Outlet Trail

pleasant shady ride

September, 2023 by new28g-ret1

We enjoyed a leisurely ride on the trail on an unseasonably hot September day. There was enough shade along the way to make it pleasant. There’s nothing but a parking lot at Dresden end where we elected to turn around but looks like food and Seneca lake are just a blocks away. Note that the elevation at Pen Yan is a few hundred feet higher than at Dresden so we definitely worked harder going back. As for those who complained about tree roots, bugs, etc. we didn’t have any issues this day.

Black Diamond Trail

Daily closures 9 Aug-20 Sept 2023

August, 2023 by nicolebitburg

As per note on South Trailhead barricade: Aug 9 - Sept 20 expect daily trail closures due to the repair of a high-voltage line. I biked this awesome trail Aug 9 late afternoon & there was a construction truck sometime in the middle of the trail just finishing up & departing. Probably hit or miss until Sept 20 as to whether they are working on the lines or not. Today is a Wednesday… it’s 3pm. My guess would be that it would be open before 9 AM and after 5 PM and on the weekends but IDK 5 stars bc it’s a great trail
