This section is very fragmented. You have to walk on the road for long distances. It’s really too bad because there is so much canal history in this stretch I would love to be able to walk it.
A pretty little wooded (though unspectacular) rail-trail that could be the start of a wonderful loop through Catskill towns and North South Lake. But note: this is not a trail for bikes, because the wooden rail ties are still in place. The ties should be removed, unless the intention is to deter bikes from using the trail. They don't add a level of historic poignancy; they're just darn bumpy, and you'll be stopping ever twenty feet to walk your bike over them.
The waterfalls near the eastern (Albany) terminus are beautiful. Going east to west (Albany to Voorheesville) you gain elevation, but the trail is never more than a 5% grade and usually less. There's an air pump for your bike tires at the eastern terminus.
My kids and I love to take our dogs for a walk here
The trail is in good condition, flat, clean, and scenic. It checked all the boxes.
About 5 miles of newly paved trail has been open east of Amsterdam to Pattersonville. It is a really nice ride along the river.
We had been waiting for the new paved section of trail to open connecting Slingerlands to Voorheesville. It opened and they did a terrific job. There is limited parking at the Port of Albany trailhead but it’s a great ride of about 9.5 miles from there to Voorheesville. At the Voorheesville end the trail ends at a small park that has a new gazebo where an old railway station used to be.
The trail has been ruined since they've paved it. I use to see different kinds of wildlife like, snapping turtles, timber doodle. Now nothing they're all hiding. Totally ruined the nature aspect of the bog.😔 won't go back
Nice trail, crusher run, so you have some rough spots. Overall a nice short trail to get your bike out or take a walk. I probably take a fishing pole with me next time on the trail. There are stations to do cardio or other exercises along the trail.
Quick update that a stretch of trail less than one mile between Cornwall Av. and West Main St. in Cheshire is now officially opened, avoiding a detour onto Willow St. There is now a continuous, paved, off-road stretch of trail some 25 miles from Temple St. in downtown New Haven to Lazy Lane in Southington.
I am lucky emough to live 1/2 mi from the Farmington Valley Trail and use it quite frequently along with a few of my friends.
I used to ride my horse along this route before it was scheduled for paving for a rail trail. Back then very FEW people used it. Mostly young motorcross kids and horseback riders.
Since it has been paved - horses are now NOT ALLOWED!! (Too bad for us); but as I have moved away from horse riding to personal trail use I am SO HAPPY that I have this wonderful gift in my back yard. There are many many miles and it spans on into southern massachusetts as well.
The trail itself is wonderful; paved, stripe’d and mowed in my area. I have ridden into Mass and south to Simsbury. Before my section was paved I had to load my bike and drive to Simsbury and unload, reload etc. Now, I just hope onto bike (or walk) and go for as long or far as I choose. The scenery is mostly rural, treed and very few homes are seen unless you are crossing streets. I know there are black bears near our home (area) but have not SEEN one ON the trail (daytime use).
It is SUCH a marvelous thing - and I see dozens and dozens of folks biking, walking, & rollerblading. Its a joy to be out in nature!!
Well-maintained, great bike ride. Lots of really cool stops along the way. Beautiful views on the trail north of Hartford.
