Hoosic River Greenway

Low budget Bike Trail

September, 2021 by jpgrieco

My wife and I tried this trail because it is a fairly short drive to Hoosick Falls. It is NOT your typical bike trail. It is gravel (hard packed crushed stone) but not difficult to ride on. We parked in a lot in town at the middle of the trail, rode north which was very nice and not too long. The north end is a bit desolate. We rode back and attempted to continue on the southern part, however it was not marked at all and we could not find any visible "access" point. We eventually made our way through the town and found a sign pointing us toward the trail.
This eventually brought us to the southern end of the trail near some little league ball fields. We rode northward again on gravel for about a mile when the gravel abruptly stopped. We spent 5 or 10 minutes contemplating whether to continue or not. Ahead of us was just grass, but not something that looked like a trail. After about 100 yards it became a mowed grass path which was definitely an old railroad bed, rather high with the river to our left and a ditch to our right. To say the least , it was NOT what we expected. This section was directly behind peoples homes and we were not even sure if we were on a trail at this point. It eventually went under a train bridge and came out where it was not marked at all, a few blocks from where our car was parked. To say the least, we wish we had read a review similar to this so we would have known what to expect. Hopefully this will help to inform someone else in the future.

Once we got to the Sanitation site north of Keene the trail wasn't more then a goat trail. Muddy, rocky narrow, and not very much fun. We turned around. Maybe it would be better from Walpole south.

Lye Brook Falls Trail

steep and rocky

September, 2021 by bethferr

This was moderate to difficult. But I am in my advanced 50s and over weight. It is 85% uphill, a lot of rocks. Not sure if all the rocks are from hurricane Irene or if it has always been rocky. A hiking stick was helpful for balance. My husband, same age, not over weight found it moderate to difficult, but navigated the rocks much more easily. The falls are incredible! Worth the hike.

Ballston Veterans Bike Path

West River Trail

Beautiful but bumpy ride

September, 2021 by gsm1202

I live about 7 miles from the South Londonderry trail head and only wish the trail was better suited for my hybrid bike. The first 3 miles (approx) to the Winhall campground are in bad shape (dirt festooned with rocks, roots, ruts and mud puddles). I don't know when the article summary was written, but I have a different idea of what "well maintained" means. Those with mountain bikes or fat tire bikes should have a much easier time with it though.
The trail ride is sandwiched by a campground road for a couple of miles. It's asphalt, and other than navigating several speed bumps, is an easy ride to another dirt path on the Jamaica side. It's in better shape than the South Londonderry portion. It's not in great shape for riding either but very manageable.
The two dirt path portions follow the contour of the tree lined West River. The view is particularly vivid, particularly in Autumn, and a favorite spot to hike with my dog. As a bike trail though, it needs work.

Ashuelot Recreational Rail Trail

Hinsdale to Keene

September, 2021 by aldcon_tl

This was a bike ride from Depot Street in Hinsdale to Keene State College area. Beautiful views of Ashuelot River along ride and several covered bridges. Several old mill buildings in various state of disrepair to look at. The trail from Depot Street to near Riverside Lane in Swansey has good sections of loose gravel with several sections of puddles and mud. This part of the trail is good for mountain bikes and for those that don't mind going through puddles that vary in length from a few feet to over 20 feet long. Some are deep too. A few potholes and gopher holes in this section and one bridge with bad decking boards. I'd rate this first section of the ride a 2. From Riverside Lane up to Keene trail is wide with good gravel base. Easy for most bikes to navigate this. I'd rate this section a 4.

Erie Canalway Trail

Bicycled the full trail - as a COVID goal

September, 2021 by david.r.cok

2021: Biked the Erie Canal trail from Buffalo to Cohoes. Well worth the time. And mostly a very pleasant experience, with just a few caveats. Trail improvements are ongoing and signage along the trail is not always up to date, so check your route carefully, especially where it is on-road. The initial section from downtown Buffalo is grungy city streets, but that improves with a great, mostly off-road trail all the way to Lyons. Lockport to Spencerport is fairly exposed, but from there on to Lyons is generally pleasantly green and shaded. From Clyde to Port Byron and through Syracuse were onroad and not always clearly signed and were the least pleasant. From the east side of Syracuse all the way to Cohoes was a delightful and beautiful ride, with the exception of finding one's way onroad and with poor signage through Rome. All in all (despite my caveats) a good, local, human-powered bucket-list endeavor, with thanks to all the communities along the way and everyone maintaining and improving and filling the gaps in the trail.

Bobby Woodman Rail Trail

Trail in good shape

August, 2021 by jcenh

The trail was in good shape. Unfortunately there wasn't much to see. The highlight was the trestle over the Sugar River. The place where the trail 'parallels Washington Street' was busy and care was needed because many cars were entering the shopping area.

Since the trail was short, we continued on the Sugar River trail. There was a fair amount of working being done on it and it was not as nice as it was one year ago. Sand was being added in places which made it more difficult to ride through. Overall, however, we'd recommend the Sugar River trail west side and make sure you see at least one of the two train covered bridges!

Sugar River Rail Trail!

August, 2021 by jsolon3680

With touring version of an e-bike, found this trail to be interesting, historic, and fun! Yes, there are some spots with sand, but if one rides smart, no issue. Did not run into any of the ATV’s mentioned in the other reviews. Loved all of the River crossings, as well as the two covered bridges! Loved the white tailed deer seen on the route as well!
