Harlem Valley Rail Trail

one of the very best

November, 2020 by SPanny

I have been riding this trail for years. As of November, 2020, a wonderful new section has just been introduced, stretching from Millerton, NY to Under Mountain Road. This means that the trail now covers almost 24 miles one-way from Wassaic NY all the way to Orphan Farm Road near Copake. This is a classic, beautiful trail the runs through a valley, with so many nice sections: tunnels of trees looking out over farms, places to stop in Amenia and Millerton, a section that runs right to the entrance of Taconic State Park, several raised ridges with views of fields on both sides. The newest area, from Millerton to Under Mountain Road, is perhaps the nicest of all, as it runs through an area with views of the Taconic Berkshires and runs over multiple ponds via the old train bridges (now updated for bicycles). I’ve been on rail trails all over the northeast, this is one of the very best.

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

Entire trail now open and beautiful!

November, 2020 by patdaviau6

This trail is just perfect. Great scenery, relatively flat, newly paved, many areas to park along this trail. We parked at Lanesborough had a great lunch at AJ which is right on trail in Adams.

Catskill Scenic Trail

Beautiful scenery, trail in decent shape . . .

October, 2020 by rebeccabeynon

After reading the mixed reviews here about the trail being super bumpy and overrun by ATVs, my husband and I weren’t sure what to expect. We decided to risk it and really enjoyed the ride on our hybrids. We took a 24 mile there-and-back from Stamford to Bloomville in late October 2020. Weather was a bit chilly, and we saw a few walkers, who seemed like locals, one other biker, and one motorcyclist. No problem finding the trail in Stamford — it’s right at the Depot.

Pros: (1) The scenery is really nice and has a great variety. We also biked on the Ashkogan trail while vacationing in the Catskills, and while that trail is better maintained, there is a lot more to see on this ride. You basically go through farmland, by streams, through small communities. (2) It’s very flat and easy riding.

Cons: (1) The trail is decently maintained, and not nearly as bad as some reviewers have suggested, at least between Stamford/Bloomville. There were a few bumpy sections, and some sections overgrown with grass. It had rained the day before, and there were a couple of muddy patches. If you want to barrel through as fast as possible without watching the trail, this isn’t for you. But if you want to keep a moderate pace, the trail is just fine. At no point did we need to get off our bikes or find it so bumpy that it was not rideable. I would say that 85-90% of the trail is in quite good shape — kind of like biking on a country lane. (2) There are a few sections near Bloomville where the trail passes right by backyards of small houses with a lot of trash and junk in them. Just not the nicest vibe. (3) We encountered one guy on a motorbike cruising down the trail at probably 30 mph. From other reviews, seems like motorized vehicles might be more frequent at some times than others. If that’s the case, that would definitely have changed this from a really fun ride to one that I wouldn’t enjoy.

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

Beautiful Trail

October, 2020 by cutler273

So happy we found this trail! It’s beautifully paved and nearly all flat. There is a gradual downgrade for the last few miles into Adams ... which means an upgrade on the way back. ¿ We live in northern CT so it takes us about 1.5 hrs to get to the southern Trail Head ... but it’s worth the drive. We’ve ridden this trail twice this year and will be back next year!

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

beautiful smooth ride

October, 2020 by tmarisseau5

We did this trail Columbus day weekend, the weather was perfect, the views spectacular and it wasnt very crowded at all. Will definitely do this trail again!

Black Bridge Trail

This is a lovely trail. We ride it to connect to the Champlain canal trail in waterford. The connection is on waterford streets, but very easy to negotiate, just look for the Empire State Trail signs and enjoy the empty gravel tail along the canal

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

gorgeous!

October, 2020 by lukeynuthmann

Absolutely beautiful trail! I went on October 10, 2020. A warm sunny day, lots of bikers, walkers, And in-line skaters. The trail itself is so smooth - not one pothole. And lovely views along the lake and quieter views of the wetlands. Will definitely go again next year and highly recommend it.

Update

October, 2020 by davidbuckbee1496

From Coons Crossing the trail has been extended 2.5 miles to Mechanicville. Beautiful broad paved trail along the railroad but far enough away to be safe. You may see a freight during your trip.

Amazing Trail!!

September, 2020 by patdaviau6

Trail has beautiful scenery, paved, flat, plenty parking at Berkshire Mall just go, you’ll be glad you did. Ate at Pizza House in Adams, food was great just 1 minute off the trail.

Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail

Great trail near the New York State capital

September, 2020 by sschwinn

Great trail in the Albany area! Can't really add to the previous comments. Just note that there is major road construction on Rte 32/ South Pearl St at the eastern end trail head. The parking lot is still open but you may experience delays in getting to it. I would definitely advise not trying to on-road cycle to the trail head.

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

Poultney to Castleton

September, 2020 by gjzambetti

Wonderful trail. Nine miles of crushed stone and hard pack dirt from southern end to Castleton University parking lot. I would not use a thin tire road bike. Beware: the southern end is a dead end 2 miles from Poultney and does not have a parking lot as indicated on the trail map. You must park in Poultney in a well marked lot off of Bentley Ave.
