This is a lovely, well maintained trail! Heads up—as of late June the section from Cheshire to Adams is closed for repair until October 2020. Still the stretch from Cheshire to Pittsfield is all new and a really pleasant, scenic ride.

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

new pavement.

June, 2020 by bjtmaro

The Vermont section of the D&H has been repaved from West Rupert to Castleton as of June 2020. This pavement is a combination of stone, cinder, and asphalt. It is beautiful.

Champlain Canalway Trail: Saratoga

Good for social distancing / Pretty meadow views

A nice, leisurely trail. They’ve widened the trail.. it’s at least six feet, to allow plenty of social distancing.

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

Improvements just about done!!!

May, 2020 by HDSears

Did the route from Lanesborough yesterday, May 30th 2020, from the Old Lanesborough Mall through Adams to near the North Adams line where the trail ends right before you join Rt 8 across from Speciality Minerals. The lower end is not yet finished, but all ready for black top final and would expect it to be done by end of July at latest. Lower part is definitely passable until they start final pave. You can also do the route from North to South and cut out part of the unfinished section by exiting at Old State Road and coming into the Old Lanesborough Mall on the North end. The parking area below the Mall is closed and you must park in the Old Mall anyway. I didn't see any new action yet on the link going on up into North Adams, but if you haven't ever done so, it's a short jaunt from the current north trail end at route 8 up to where you can cut over by the VoTech school and come all the way into North Adams and Mass MOCA, but since I knew the brewery there would be closed, I didn't give it a shot.

Champlain Canalway Trail: Schuylerville

easy trail

May, 2020 by terrym990

Lots of water. Flat. Good for dogs. Island was coo

Black Bridge Trail

A nice short trail

May, 2020 by lughnerson

I have ridden it several times. At the south end it links to the Albany Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail, though the signage is lacking. The north end in Waterford is very scenic and you can access another unpaved trail in the village that runs along the old Erie canal and northword. The best is being there for the Tugboat festival near Labor Day weekend. Waterford is a great little village.

West River Trail

winhall campground to Londonderry

Great trail Along the west river , dogs get plenty of water . About 1.5 h from campground to train station in Londonderry

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.

Bog Meadow Brook Nature Trail

beautiful big trail, but also difficult for bikes

April, 2020 by logan_brennan

Took a walk on this with my 4-year old daughter. The bog-half of this trail is beautiful; nice boardwalks get you close to some wetlands and wind you through the bog. The other 2/3 is a straight rail trail that still has tracks buried in the path, which can be uncomfortable at times and definitely prevent bikes and scooters (if you’re looking to bring your little one on their bike). Our toddler made it 3/4 of the way one way before wanting to head back, so we didn’t see the other end.

Spring Run Trail

great short walk for kids

April, 2020 by logan_brennan

Did this walk yesterday with my 4 year old on her scooter and my wife jogging next to her. One mile in and one mile out of well-maintained over trail. Nice mix of woods and wetlands. Perfect springtime trail to see and hear all the birds. The beer distributor near the trailhead was a bonus!

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.
