We were told once we arrived on the trail, that it was not complete. We discovered that we had to share a gravel road that was not on the rail portion. The trail to the North was in process of being worked on and not at all passable. Some notice needs to be posted saying Trail is under construction or sharing roads with cars is noted. The Map looks Identical to the Cape Cod trail which was excellent .....no indication that the Harlem trail was not complete
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
Started at Tony Williams Park and rode to Walk Across the Hudson and onto the Dutchess County trail. The view from the bridge was spectacular. We were very excited to see that a lot of work was being done to extend the trail west into NewPaltz and presumably linking up with the Wallkill Valley rail trail.
The signs are clear but be prepared to go w traffic in certain areas of trail. There are also markings where the trail is to be repaired but hasn’t begun yet. Overall GREAT trail!
This is a trail for mountain bikes or road bikes with fatter tires. The trail comes in short sections, and in some parts the continuation isn’t clearly marked so I did some wrong turns and had to double back. Scenic in some areas. Just beware - there’s plenty of bigger rocks, tree roots jutting out, branches on the ground!
Contact with the Hop River design team has developed some news on the last remaining undeveloped area on the Hop River Trail. The section on the Windham side of the Willimantic River is under construction. A late summer opening is anticipated. This work will allow traffic over the Willimantic River from the current end at Mackey's Ag. store. A parking area is also part of the work.
The Trail from the Columbia town line to Kings Road (the current end of the developed trial) will be under design late this year. Bids, construction and all that stuff pushes the completion into 2021.
So late this summer, with a MT bike, you will be able to cross the river from Windham and follow the unimproved rail bed to Flanders Road, turn right to Kings Road and get back on the improved trail, That's less than a mile of off trail and local road.
Just a mile or so due North is another EXCELLENT off-road biking destination: Wildwood State Park on Long Island Sound. 700 undeveloped acres of mountain biking and hiking trails open to the public.
My kids and I love to take our dogs for a walk here
Parked at western end of trail in a very new parking lot on Rt 299 across from the Lowe's. Trail is beautifully paved all the way to the Walkway Over the Hudson, some of the pavement appeared to put down only days before we rode on it. State of NY is doing a fantastic job making this and the Walkway a great destination ride, installing modern bathrooms/visitor center on each side of the Walkway (open already on the west side of the river and under construction on the eastern side). On eastern side, seamlessly connects to another 13 mile rail trail. You will have to ride very slow over the Walkway, as there are a lot of walkers, but you're going to want to stop and take pictures anyway!
We parked at Tony Williams Park rode past the Walkway over the Hudson down to mile marked 8 on the Duchess Trail where we stopped on a bench for lunch. The path is wide and mostly smooth and only one construction area (putting in a modern restroom on southside of the Walkway). We would rate this the best trail we have ever been on as far as access, parking, restrooms (including port-a-potties in some areas) and very few rode/driveways to cross. We rode on a Thursday morning early October and the path was not crowded. Our 20 mile round trip was Fantastic!
I love to walk the trail and have since 1971, the cross over on Whitney Ave in Trumbull is Terrifying, The cars cannot see any one passing the road way until they are in the roadway. The line of sight is completely obscured by vegetation and the small sign in the middle of the Street??? I have seen people run right across the road with out even slowing down prior to or while crossing Whitney Ave. I personally saw a woman hit the side of a car as she could not stop running in time to avoid the car. This section is an accident waiting to happen. Whitney Ave. crossing needs to be safer for both motorist and trail user.
