The trail is great! My husband & I rode it thus weekend and discovered that they have recently completed it north from Millerton so both sections are now connected!

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

good mix of trail

April, 2021 by rmjm2squier

We started at the Hudson end. All cinders in Columbia County. This part is flat and the cinders bake hard once weather warms. Great views of falls land pastoral land. The Rensselaer county half is paved and has several hilly portions. The portions through the villages and hamlets include passing the remaining trolley stations. The shared road portions are ok and ample shoulders or light traffic streets are used.

Sue Grossman Still River Greenway

Nice trail for a short skate.

April, 2021 by suzylee492

This is a nice even, smooth trail, mostly flat and very easy to skate. Just a few small hills, I can usually build enough momentum to coast most of the way up. It's not very long so it's a nice stop if I don't have a lot of time. Can be crowded in the evenings, after work and school, lots of people walking their dogs.

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

April, 2021 by bktourer1

I rode from Nassau to Rensselaer today on the trail. Best place to park is at the town common. Tables/pavilion no porta potties.
10 Fairground St or 7 John Street good addresses to use.
Ice Cream spot right on trail and Cumberland and pizza nearby.
Trail in great condition except one bad street.. Large parking lot at Nassau Lake
Long up and downhills about for several miles, not bad unless there is winding
Well signed and many ped/bike crossing lights
After crossing I90, Dunkin / gas ad General Store.
The trail through neighborhoods on roads are quiet.
At about Miles 10,5 & 6. Stewarts Store ad gas stations right off trail for food
Trail ends on a street in East Greenbush, You can follow the on road signs all the way to Rensselaer (some long downhills)

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

Best Trail

April, 2021 by cwr2yzfcs6

I do a lot of running and road biking. This trail is great for both. Rolling hill, scenic, great for distant ride/runs. Construction of the trail was completed Fall of 2020. By far my favorite trail in the capital region

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

Pleasant mix of flats and rolling hills

March, 2021 by earth2wayne

First off — skip the northern part of the trail from the Hampton Manor Lake area if you are a biker — and start your trip at Miller Road (just of interstate 90). You will be greeted by a babbling brooks, rolling hills, and the smell of farms. As you head south through Nassau Lake you will have opportunities for food and drinks. This is a fun ride.

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

fantastic trail

March, 2021 by ofthepearlgirl

This trail is great. There are paved stretches (from East Greenbush to Nassau) with mostly unpaved from Chatham to Hudson (with short stretches of paved in that area). My favorite part is the Nassau area.

Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail

A stunning achievement

March, 2021 by rjs12206

I congratulate all who were involved in developing this magnificent route. I rode it from Albany to Voorheesville and back. The way to Voorheesville is 9 miles of gentle up-hill grade until final few miles, which makes the return trip to Albany mostly a gentle downhill ride. This is "rail trail" at it's best!

Canalside Rail Trail

Easy & Flat!

March, 2021 by pianoemily

This is a really pretty trail. The long stretch along the water in Turners Falls is gorgeous and the paved path is wide enough that others can easily pass. As you continue, it narrows and the buildings nearby are kind of junky..... but it's worth it to be able to see the ducks and geese on the large water section.
