Oneida Rail Trail

Hidden Gem

May, 2020 by shutterbug313

We started at the trailhead then asked over the bridge toward Wampsville. We stopped at the sheriffs office which was about 1/2mile down the path.the trail is crushed stone and passes wooded areas, the creek and some fields. We will be back to explore more. Only gave it four stars because it is dog friendly but has not trash receptacles and because there is only parking for four vehicles at the trailhead.

Lenox Rail Trail

Nice for Skating!

May, 2020 by seckler16

Perfect spot for inline or quad skating! There are rest points along the trail with benches and the train passes right next to you! The skate park is close and at the beginning of the trail which is nice.

Cato-Fair Haven Trail

ATVs - not bikes

May, 2020 by brucestebbins

The setting is beautiful and the shaded trail a relief from hot sun. Unfortunately the trail is beat up by motorized vehicle traffic and poorly maintained, so you have to pay close attention to dodging large pot holes and the cobbles used for repair. Would be vastly improved with stone dust vs runner crush and stones. Nice ATV trail and riders I met were very considerate.

Oneida Rail Trail

very nice!

May, 2020 by pdonnelly_tl

Lovely path for a bike ride/walk/run! Away from the traffic and in nature. The path was crushed stone but very smooth! If you park on Hubbard you could choose one way for a shorter route (1.5 miles out and back) if you had little ones or the other if you wanted a full 2 miles (out and back) you could go the other way!

Erie Canalway Trail

My favorite section of the Erie Canal is when I bike from Tow path in Pittsford to Long Pond in Greece where the gravel begins. The whole trail is asphalt and it's really smooth. It's a good 30 miles I would say.

Erie Canalway Trail

Free parking can be found at a small park in Rennseller with toilets nearby,
Follow the RT 5 & 9 signs to the ped. bridge over the river which takes you directly onto the path. There are signs for the Mohawk / Hudson Bikeway.
The map is out of print but online. You will need to get off trail and ride on road for 4 miles before connection to the pathway. Side street at blue kiosk will take you to Cohos Falls (food nearby). About 12 miles to Falls.

Erie Canalway Trail

Amsterdam to a little past fort hunter

September, 2019 by aparrott58

Rode one way approx 7 miles starting in Amsterdam. While pedaling under the thruway overpass, it smelled like feces/urine. This area has an abandoned building and an adjacent overgrown wareyard with debris piles, junk and very weedy. Approx 1/3 mile past the overpass we stopped to look at map and weather app (the clouds were looking ominous) and I see a large man riding toward us (up until that point we saw no-one else on the trail). As he passed us grunting and snarling at us, I noticed he was filthy with dirty hair and face. He rode past us and less than 30 seconds later when I looked down the trail, he had disappeared into the brush (this is a straightaway section - you can see a long way). We turned around and within 10 minutes the downpour was upon us. We were soaked when we arrived back in am-dam.

My advice: do not pedal this section by the overpass alone. This man had no good reason to pursue us, then growl/grunt when passing us and then disappear back into the brush. If I had been solo riding, I can only speculate on a different outcome. He is living under/by the overpass. We apparently pedaled thru his "area".

Black River Feeder Canal Trail

Awesome Fall Leave Bike Trail

September, 2019 by jkillean_tl

In the fall, the leaves reflection on the still waters is stunning. Is an easy flat ride, down and back in about 2.5 hours. On route 8 (heading North), turn left before the bridge and the parking area is adjacent to the waterfalls. In Boonville, there is ample parking at the park near the covered bridge.

Erie Canalway Trail

Part 1, Albany to Schenectady, Lock 7

August, 2019 by lughnerson

This is the first of a multi-part review, since the trail is so long. It takes me and hour and a half to drive from New Paltz, NY to one of the parking areas.

Last year I rode the section from the Corning Center in Albany along the Hudson River to end at a parking lot in Watervaliet. Right next to the the river, there is a lot to see and hear on this paved trail, as the highway is sometimes very close. There are plenty of areas to stop and touch the water while on a break. Just do it sometime anytime. I would like to revisit this section after the leaves have fallen, just before winter.

Last month I rode from the through the Albany suburbs of Watervaliet, Green Island, and Cahoes. Though it is fairly flat and well paved, it is totally on-street section of the trail. One nice side trip is north up to Waterford, which goes over several bridges to Van Schaich Island and Peebles Island. When you cross the steel bridge you can see the beginning of the actual canal and its first lock near the Waterford Harbor Visitor Center. Just go down Cannon Street.

Last week, Tuesday August 20, 2019 I went to the section that includes the towns of Latham and Colonie, turning around at Lock 7 on the Mohawk River. This is a very nice section of the trail, good pavement, mostly shady and offers a few nice views of the Mohawk River. There is a short on-road section in Dunsbach Ferry where you ride underneath Route 87. Then a significant hill back to the trail. Headed west, from the Lions Park in Niskayuna ( a good parking area) there is one very straight and flat section of about a mile or so for time-keepers and racers. Lock #7 is a pleasant park to stop for a break and watch the boats navigate the rise or fall of the lock, next to a waterfall.

It may take several years for me to complete the entire Erie Canal trail, but it is a fun goal.

Erie Canalway Trail

Herkimer to St Johnsville

August, 2019 by francebau

We have been loving this trail from Herkimer ( starts at Movac parking lot rt 5s Mohawk) , past Fort Herkimer Church about 4 miles is paved and mostly flat. A beautiful ride. Will be great when the connection at rt 167 in LittleFalls is finished. The trail continues to be paved across rt 167 ( Little Falls). Mostly flat and very scenic. Turns to stone dust at Finks Basin rd. LF ( parking). Paved again@ STJ
