Erie Canalway Trail

Long Trail with some issues along the road

February, 2018 by sanmartm

Last summer, a group of 10 friends did the trail from Buffalo to Albany. Before we started the trail in Buffalo, we ride our bikes to Niagara Falls in Canada. Great experience and wonderful ride, except for walking the bike over the border.
The "trail" between Buffalo and Albany has some gaps but in general is ok. There is a small section before Rochester where the trail is in horrible condition. The good thing is that there are good hotels in Albany, Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester (Marriott) so you can accomodate your trip to stay in a nice hotel after a long ride. There is only one stop where you have to sleep in a run-down motel, but, hey! No trip is perfect!

Black River Trail

Black River trail extended 2017

September, 2017 by doreent

My total mileage measured 4.5 from the parking lot off Route 3 in Black River to the new addition on parking lot on Walker Ave., located in the city of Watertown. This trail now has three parking lots. It also crosses three roads with road crossing right-a-way lights. It is well maintained. On the new addition in the city of Watertown area, there is a Good will .. food share box and when in season, a vegetable garden that is shared with those using this trail. Future plans are to extend this trail to downtown Watertown where it will once again follow the black river!

Oswego County Trail

didn’t ride

September, 2017 by sspano6

Was going to begin at maple ave as it’s closest to home, but didn’t feel comfortable parking here. Clearly marked for motorized vehicles and probably great for that and locals but wouldn’t leave my car here unattended. Maybe try a different starting point.

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

A Pathway

September, 2017 by kshell

The Ontario Pathway is exactly that; a pathway. It is a wide grassy path with a narrow-worn bike path. I was not expecting such a primitive trail. It is a beautiful trail that is under a canopy of trees that travels through lush farms. On our ride, the weather was great but the trail could be a problem in wet weather.

The Ontario Pathway seems to be lost in time. I felt I should have been riding a balloon tire Schwinn instead of my hybrid. It was a great experience but a little more strenuous that we expected.

Cato-Fair Haven Trail

Cato-Fair Haven Trail

September, 2017 by paulengineri

Compared to other trails we have ridden on with our mountain bikes this one was very dug up and rocky.

Cayuga-Seneca Canal Trail

excellent and a beautiful trail

September, 2017 by hschler

This is a uniformly wide trail of hard packed stone and very little elevation change. 80 or 90% in the shade due to the very thick canopy running next to the canal that connects Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. The water itself is in view about 30 or 40% of the time and it is gorgeous. This will be a great trail to ride in the fall, just a few weeks from now. Note that the actual mileage is 4 1/2 miles and is really only accessible from the Waterloo entrance. Very large parking lot right next to one of the locks. Note that will be instructions say that you go down half Street after going over the bridge from the north, there is no Huff Street sign at the corner of Route 96 and 12 Huff but there is a round Cayuga Seneca trail sign pointing the way. Once this route connect to Seneca lake state park it will add about three more miles for a total of 7 1/2 one way or 15 round trip which will be great. Seneca Lake State Park and the Geneva waterfront are fully along the north end of Seneca lake right on the water

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Beauty for the eyes, torture on the nose

September, 2017 by ihammerhands

Ran from the trail intersection and Freshour Rd to Canadaigua YMCA. Beautiful tree canopy made sun protection unnecessary. This portion of the trail was about 50/50 wide enough to run on the path vs. in the grass.
About 3/4 had a taste in the mouth manure smell. Not sure time of year, wind direction or weather its a common occurrence.

Erie Canalway Trail

Not maintained

August, 2017 by arcy6635

When biking from Utica to oriskany this trail hasn't been maintained at all.its to a point where I quit usuing this trail

Cato-Fair Haven Trail

Cato-Fair Haven Trail

Very nice ride 28 mile round trip between Fair Haven and Cato. The air was sweet, lots to see and places to stop and sit. Look forward to it again. Would be a great way to take out of town friends for an ATV ride, walk , bike, whole family trail or beginners. Moved some downed tree branches and picked up trash. Wear appropriate attire, abandoned railway. Paid $30 dollars to the Oswego Valley ATV club to ride trail and for a parking pass, trail map and code of conduct papers. Walk, Bike for free,some horse traffic as well. On the whole I felt safe. and I felt the people that live on or near the trail were friendly good hearted hard working people.

Oswego County Trail

difficult ride

July, 2017 by tsbodman

First time using this trail. Easy to park at church parking lot at Bridge st and Clay in Cleveland. Trail begins down the street on Clay street. Mostly gravel and dirt. Not easy using a hybrid and had to stop twice for ATVs who were polite and slowed down. Only biked a few miles before turning around

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Great trail!

June, 2017 by poof

Anne and I biked this rail trail today and loved it. We arrived in Canandaigua just as thunderstorms were moving through, so visited the Dalai Java coffeeshop on Main Street for some coffee and lunch. Very nice. After the rain ended, we rode for about 8 miles round trip. The beginning little bit along the active train tracks is just okay, but it fairly quickly leaves the tracks and enters an enchanted green tunnel. The shrubs and trees arch over the trail to provide shade and a feeling of isolation in nature. Unfortunately we had to turn around between Smith and Freshour Roads, due to a tree across the trail. It could be cut with a hand saw, but I did not have one.

Thanks to the folks who created and maintain this gem.

Erie Canalway Trail

Fairport to W Henrietta Rd Rochester

June, 2017 by ajw

We parked at Lock 32, and rode west to Henrietta Rd (we were going to Genesee Valley Park, but trail closed at Henrietta Rd for bridge construction). Then turned around and went east to Fairport. 26miles roundtrip. Trail is paved, flat, and in good condition for most of the way. Since it is along a canal, it is open with little shade. Tough on a windy day. There was a portapotty at Lock 32, but no other restrooms or water that we saw.
