This trail is nicely paved, but extremely short. Great for a short walk or bike trail for LITTLE children. But, definitely not a trail for older kids or family bike ride.
Just tried the trail for the first time doing the first 10 miles from Southeast Town Park. In those 10 miles there was one road crossing and you can still go further without one - I didn't go to the end yet. There is a long gradual grade of about 500' over 5.5 miles but really not bad. There are a few spots with a flat rock as a bench but no bathrooms at all and nothing much around as far as stores or such. My estimate is that trail will be mostly shady before noon but will be lots of sun in the afternoon.
Very scenic trail though residential and park like areas including a nice section through a swamp area - bring your bug repellant.
Awesome trail. I consider myself a novice rider and I found this trail very enjoyable. There was the perfect amount of challenging areas on the trail...would highly recommend this trail to all riders
The trail is nice but swampy in areas. There is no parking.
I biked from Brewster to Poughkeepsie on March 12, once it finally warmed up a bit. There were a few short slushy sections and a head wind, and the trail's surprisingly hilly, but I got to Hopewell Junction in about two hours. There are no services between Brewster and HJ, and the trail feels pretty remote, but there's lots of nice scenery.
Now that most of the snow has melted I ventured East from Greenhaven up Depot Hill by bike. Quite a long uphill stretch. When I got near the top the cooler temperatures and shade kept the trail snow covered. After pushing my bike uphill for a stretch it wasn’t clearing. My goal was to get to Whaley Lake but will have to return when Spring temperatures permit. No regrets fabulous paved trail. It would be a considerable uphill walk from Greenhaven as there is no trail head parking until you reach the summit. Mostly wooded with interesting rock cuts along this section. A few intersecting country roads homes and bucolic old farms, stone walls typical to the area. Well worth returning.
This was our first family trail with kids that were new to bicycling. Everyone enjoyed the consistent pace of the trail. Not too crowded, but haven't tried middle of summer yet. Takes about 30 minutes to go from one end to the other and back.
This trail is a gem. Fully open now from Tonetta Lake in Brewster to Hopewell Junction. Be aware that there are at least 2 additional parking areas/access points where the trail crosses RT 292 in Holmes (Whalay Lake - Holmes Community Center) and where it crosses Old Rt 55. The trail is in great condition, has some great lake and marsh views throughout and crosses the Appalachian Trail at one point.
I visited this beautiful, peaceful trail today for the first time. I started out at 11:45 this Sat and enjoyed every minute. The trail is quite and with relatively few people. Highly recommend!!
Phase 1- the makings of a wonderful trail! Anxiously waiting for the completion of phase 2.
The Air Line State Park Trail is one of my favorite bike trails in Connecticut. Rode our bikes there last week and was very disappointed with the recently resurfaced section from the Cranberry Bog in East Hampton. The gravel that was used in the resurfacing is to soft and to deep. Has only been open for a week (10/28/2020) and it is already marred by craters from horses and foot traffic. The ride is bumpy like a wash board. At one point I swerved to miss a pile of horse droppings and got to close to the edge which then collapsed under my bike causing me to fall. What was once a favorite section of the trail for us, is now a major disappointment.
We parked by the pet store mentioned in a previous review and biked to just passed the covered bridge, maybe 6 miles out? Beginning of trail is rough but that ends quickly . Nice ride in the woods. Not much to see. It was a slight incline on the way out which made the return better. I wish there some benches along the way to take a break.
