Heritage Trail (NY)

Perfect Day Ride

October, 2021 by ns4hcxdz8k

We were looking for a ride that provided a good workout, beautiful foliage and a break from the city. The path was straight, flat and paved - so great for all level riders and all age people. The town of Goshen is great. The trail ends (or sort of starts there) depends which side of it you want to start on. There is a portion beyond Goshen in Middletown. To get to that piece - you need to go through the town of Goshen using W. Main Street. You must stop at Sweet Tymes for a treat. Continue to proceed down W Main Street for about 1/4 of mile and on the right you will see the start of the bike path again. You know you have gone too far if you get to the cemetery on the left side of W Main Street. I would also stop in Chester ( you will see the old converted train station) and grab a bite at the Rustic Wheelhouse. Promise it will be a perfect day!

Parksville Rail Trail

One of our Go-To Trails

October, 2021 by kataiko13

Parksville Rail Trail is one of our favorites! It’s gorgeous year round (though usually quite wet in parts, and icy in winter) but it’s one of our go to trails for a quick hike. Great for kids too!

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

Fabulous but needs a fix

October, 2021 by lampinscott

Beautiful and well maintained…feels like it was built last night! Maybe could use a few benches but the real issue is the dangerous berms at the intersections mentioned by a previous reviewer. Truly horrible design! We saw a rider hit one hard. Fortunately he didn’t fall. They should be removed but in the meantime the curbs should be painted and potted plants placed on them to increase visibility. You will enjoy this trail just be safe.

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

Interesting ride

October, 2021 by steve.schwinn

I did this trail end-to-end yesterday as an out-and back from the southern end (no official parking at the trailhead but two supermarkets nearby could be utilized).
Overall in good to very good shape.
The non paved sections are OK for all type bikes except perhaps not for road bikes if the trail is wet.
The on-road sections are generally well marked by Empire State Trail (of which this trail is a part) signage.
Informative signage along the way.
It's not exactly a flat ride. My cycling app had it at over 1800 feet of elevation gain for the out-and-back.
Tip: About 6 miles from the southern end is the Hudson River Skywalk over the Rip Van Winkle Bridge with great views of the Hudson River and the Catskills.

Heritage Trail (NY)

Awesome Trail!

September, 2021 by mmorse33

We started the trail in Middleport parking on Palmer Ave. Highly recommend this direction as it’s mainly uphill to Harriman. We clocked 19 miles exactly to Harriman. The uphill is not super intense but is uphill so the way back was super fun and easy! We stopped in Monroe on the way back to Middleport. 38 miles in total ALL PAVED and 99.5 % trail. Excellent. Little weird spot right before Goshen as the trail ends abruptly with no signs. Head into the main town of Goshen and turn right at the wine store and you’ll be back on track!

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

Worth Biking

September, 2021 by mdnkcn

We biked the newly completed Under Mountain Road to Millerton. We have biked the other completed sections in the past and this newly completed section does not disappoint . Very scenic and easy ride with our hybrid bikes.

Ashokan Rail Trail

Delightful bike ride

September, 2021 by mdnkcn

Well Maintained trail as we biked the central to western end. We would have biked the eastren side but it was closed for a maintenance reason. Turned out all the better as most of the scenic overlooks were on side we biked. Our hybrid bikes handled the packed stone trail very well. Would certainly return again

O&W Rail Trail

Bumpy ride starting at Hurley Marbletown Trailhead

September, 2021 by mdnkcn

We started at the Hurley Marbletown Trailhead where the trail transitioned from pavement along SR 209 to all wooded. Trail is very scenic, that said trail has lots of ruts with no visual maintenance. We biked 1HR one way and turned around. Our bikes are hybrid and did not handle the poor grading very well. I would recommend wide tire bikes

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

East Greenbush to Nassau

September, 2021 by kbuffaline

Loved this ride. We rode from Columbia Plaza in EG to Nassau and back. Casual riding took 1 1/2hrs to get to Nassau (and much longer to get back- as it was our first ride this year-do we were tuckered out!). Lol. Miller RD (exit 10) Schodack has a convenient store which is about 1/2 way. So a great “pit-stop”. As was “smilees” ice-cream in Nassau and a Taco place “Diablos ?”sp across the way in Nassau.

Wallkill Valley Rail Trail

Great Trail. Rosendale Trestle and south.

September, 2021 by tekyma

We rode this trail for about 5 miles from the kilns, across the trestle, and south past farms and shaded trail. It was lovely. We quickly came upon a cave which was emitting cold air and stopped to take it in. No signage to inform you of this wonder. We brought a lunch and were disappointed to find no benches for the entire stretch. I just wanted to point these 2 things out as a way to improve the experience for others
