Amazing Trail!!

September, 2020 by patdaviau6

Trail has beautiful scenery, paved, flat, plenty parking at Berkshire Mall just go, you’ll be glad you did. Ate at Pizza House in Adams, food was great just 1 minute off the trail.

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

Poultney to Castleton

September, 2020 by gjzambetti

Wonderful trail. Nine miles of crushed stone and hard pack dirt from southern end to Castleton University parking lot. I would not use a thin tire road bike. Beware: the southern end is a dead end 2 miles from Poultney and does not have a parking lot as indicated on the trail map. You must park in Poultney in a well marked lot off of Bentley Ave.

Cheshire Rail Trail (Cheshire Branch Rail Trail)

great ride

September, 2020 by casschoen

We started in Walpole at Blackjack Crossing. First few miles were tough! But the remaining 12 miles into Keene were great. Some great views and remnants of the railroad. Some beautiful cuts in the stone. Highly recommend!

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.

Cheshire Rail Trail (Cheshire Branch Rail Trail)

Great Ride

September, 2020 by bkersula

I rode the northern section today. Actually started near the Walpole bridge and rode some other snowmobile trails and some side roads to the junction with the rail trail, then on to Keene. Saw no one until I reached the dump. Trail was a lot of fun, but in much better shape south of the dump then to the north. Very slow grade, north of the dump it was great in places and pretty bumpy in others. I rode a basic mountain bike and had no trouble. Heard there was a bad section somewhere but never encountered anything that was really unrideable except one bad embankment. Trail was also easier to follow and more obvious the further south you went, multiple snowmobile crossings further north. This was the first time I tried this sort of thing and I had a very good time. I enjoyed the terrain and seeing where the remnants of the old line.

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

Beautiful trail

September, 2020 by nhelmer78_tl

The trail is a must do for all! It is smooth asphalt the whole trail. Virtually flat the whole trail. Lots of beautiful spots for photo opportunities. A great little farm store and deli just seconds off the trail to pick up a fantastic lunch and sweets with picnic tables on the trail just minutes away! This is a must do trail. I can’t wait to go back and ride it again.

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

August, 2020 by lughnerson

August 2020
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.
