After reading the mixed reviews here about the trail being super bumpy and overrun by ATVs, my husband and I weren’t sure what to expect. We decided to risk it and really enjoyed the ride on our hybrids. We took a 24 mile there-and-back from Stamford to Bloomville in late October 2020. Weather was a bit chilly, and we saw a few walkers, who seemed like locals, one other biker, and one motorcyclist. No problem finding the trail in Stamford — it’s right at the Depot.
Pros: (1) The scenery is really nice and has a great variety. We also biked on the Ashkogan trail while vacationing in the Catskills, and while that trail is better maintained, there is a lot more to see on this ride. You basically go through farmland, by streams, through small communities. (2) It’s very flat and easy riding.
Cons: (1) The trail is decently maintained, and not nearly as bad as some reviewers have suggested, at least between Stamford/Bloomville. There were a few bumpy sections, and some sections overgrown with grass. It had rained the day before, and there were a couple of muddy patches. If you want to barrel through as fast as possible without watching the trail, this isn’t for you. But if you want to keep a moderate pace, the trail is just fine. At no point did we need to get off our bikes or find it so bumpy that it was not rideable. I would say that 85-90% of the trail is in quite good shape — kind of like biking on a country lane. (2) There are a few sections near Bloomville where the trail passes right by backyards of small houses with a lot of trash and junk in them. Just not the nicest vibe. (3) We encountered one guy on a motorbike cruising down the trail at probably 30 mph. From other reviews, seems like motorized vehicles might be more frequent at some times than others. If that’s the case, that would definitely have changed this from a really fun ride to one that I wouldn’t enjoy.
An enjoyable bike ride for the whole family ranging from my 4yr on her own bike to my parents in their mid-60s. We rode the paved trail between Wallkill and Walden during peak foliage in Oct and it was absolutely beautiful. Nice easy ride on smooth pavement, with scenery ranging from tree-lined countryside lane to more woodsy forested areas.
We did this in a Sunday afternoon and it was impossible to ride our bikes across. We walked most of the way and the views were great going over the bridge.
This trail is an easy ride for everyone. It’s well maintained with plenty of benches to rest and a mixture of sun and shady spots. The end of this trail leads right into the Walkway over the Hudson.
One of the best trails I have done. Nice and smooth. You must do Walkway over The Hudson.
We rode from New Paltz to a bit north of Rosendale trestle. Stopped for pizza at Rail Trail Cafe (delicious but really slow). View from the trestle is excellent, especially with the foliage almost peaking right now. The trail was in good condition but it hadn’t rained in a long time. Just north of the trestle there’s a cave you can explore on the right. Bring a good light.
Amazing ride in mid-October! Nice wide trail, mostly flat, plenty of benches to take breaks. Saw a beaver by its dam not far from the middle parking area
My friend and I rode from Millwood on the North County Trail and just kept going. We ended up on the Putnam Trailway for a total of 46 miles. There are several decent hills on this segment of the trail. There are some street crossings but they are not very busy roads. You eventually come to the end of the trail, which is clearly marked. Near the end of the trail is a large reservoir. The trail is completely paved with just a few bumpy spots. We rode on 10/10 and the foliage has not changed much yet.
Level easy trail quiet and very pretty. Tricky entrance and exit onto busy road. Short easy trail. Wear boots muddy areas.
Nice peaceful trail from Walden to the Town of Shawangunk. After the police station, you pick up an unpaved but somewhat managed section that leads you onto the road through a prison.
fantastic views, wide open gravel, very hilly, so be prepared for a workout, but you can always walk up some of the hills. The views are amazing. The town of New Paltz is there, so you can enjoy lunch after. fantastic day
