We started at the beginning of the trail on south side at Danforth road and rode all the way to Washington headquarters museum in Morristown. We walked around the grounds of the museum. Next time we’ll reserve tickets for the tour of the Ford Mansion. We made a stop at friendly’s for lunch on the way back, discovered the stairs that lead us up to friendly’s! Pretty awesome. It was an easy ride with our 3 years old.
Little of this trail is paved as of 6/19. Not suitable for road bicycles.
My wife and I have been riding the North County Trailway off and on for about 10 years now. Always enjoyable; passes through several small towns but often through unpopulated areas. Trail continues to the south (South County Trailway) and to the north (Putnam County Trailway), so it's possible to start at the NYC border and bike for 40+ miles on well maintained trails.
Son-in-law and I rode entire trail round trip--67 miles with excursion into Milford. This is not a flat trail. Lots of tough climbs especially on the large stone gravel at both ends of the trail. Bridges can be slick when wet. Technical downhills. Recommend a mountain bike or gravel bike. Only experienced riders should attempt long distances on this trail. Would consider this a mountain bike trail, not a recreational trail for general public because of the difficulty of the trail. Would rate this as a 4-star or 5-star as a mountain bike trail but only a 2 or 3 as a general rec trail.
Recently rode this trail with a hybrid bike. The trail surface for most of its length is rough and laced with potholes. What makes it worse is that the shaded trail makes it difficult to see the potholes and other imperfections in time to steer around or slow down. There is a short stretch of smoother pavement at about the one mile mark.
This trail has great potential as it is very scenic and follows a creek for most of its length. A wayside with picnic tables and port-a-potty midway was welcome.
Slight upgrade most of the way out made for a quick return if you can avoid trail problems.
Great biking path for those who want moderate exercise and to enjoy nature. There are no Traffic lights or cars to navigate around so it’s great for families with kids. The path is well maintained and wide enough in most spots to easily navigate around walkers. You may have to slow down to pass people so if you are a cyclist looking for a more intense workout or speed you may want to stick to the off hours like early morning or late during the week
First time riding this trail over Memorial Day weekend. Almost entirely shaded with some nice scenery to enjoy along the way. The trail is mainly compact gravel and should be OK for just about all type bikes tires. As you leave High Bridge, you're on a noticeable incline that levels off after about 3 1/2 miles. Both Califon (at abut the 5 mile mark) and Long Valley (about the 11 mile mark) offer a place to take a break, grab a drink or snack or use a restroom (port-a-potty). I did not stray off the trail in either town, but I'm sure there are places to sit down and grab a bite to eat or drink. The trail ends at Bartley Rd. with very limited parking and no comfort facilities.
Use caution when crossing roads. You can also connect to the Gilette Trail which would also take you to the Patriot's Path, but I did not explore it.
All is the reviews below are pretty much on point but I must add that there are no usable bathrooms. There’s a porta potty or two at the High Bridge trailhead that are horribly vile. Just be prepared to find a bush if you need to go.
My friends and I took a short girls getaway to the area. We rode the Walkway Over the Hudson then continued west on this trail. When I first put this trail on my to do list it was at that time only 3.5 miles long. We were surprised to ride a total of 5 miles complete one way with construction continuing toward the west. The morning we left the area I took a scenic drive to the west to find busy construction workers completing it all the way to New Paltz. The trail is in excellent condition and other than the noise from route 299 around the 5 mile mark it’s worth the drive. I will return to the area with my husband and ride all three connecting trails. The only thing I would add would be mileagemarkers
My two friends and I decided to make a getaway to the Poughkeepsie area to check out this trail. We hoped to include all connecting trail but the weather was uncooperative. The day we arrived the weather was gorgeous so we parked on the Highlands side on Haviland road. We crossed the bridge and enjoyed the views of the mountains both north and south. The facilities are immaculate and the views are stunning. Great job to all who preserved this treasure for all to enjoy. I want to return with my husband
Everything about the Columbia Trail is just right to me. At 15 miles it was just the right length to be able to do an out and back with a lunch break in a half a day. The trail surface is nicely packed gravel that is virtually flat almost the entire length. The three towns along the trail are pretty evenly spread out giving you plenty of options for start points as well as places to take a coffee or lunch break.
The Columbia Trail provides enough scenic variety from quiet creeks to rolling farmland to keep the ride interesting. The only area that was a little rough was right after Long Valley where the trail winds through a housing development and around a industrial business as the trail gets narrow and almost seems to stop at points. I never had an issue with staying on the trail and the entire trail was in very good condition despite some recent rain. The Columbia Trail is just right for all riders regardless of skill.
I rode both of them one day in September 2018. This was after several days of rain, so some parts of each trail were boggy. Even in dry weather these are not for road bikes, but they are worth visiting. Neigther town is highly populated and they are not really tourist destinations. So bring most of what you might need.
