North County Trailway

Great Trail

July, 2020 by gieniacz

Completed approximately 12 miles and then back. Started at the north end. It is downhill going south so, biking back (more tired) you will have more hills to deal with. Next time we will start at the north end. Also, a short part of the trail was closed and there was a detour for about .25 of a mile and then you get back right on. We stopped in Millwood for refreshments. Excellent trail. It was 90 degrees outside but the shade was awesome and made the ride very comfortable.

Manhan Rail Trail

In good condition

July, 2020 by jadsmith001

Generally this trail is in good condition, paved all the way, few lumps and bumps with tree roots etc. The bit that isn't marked well is where it joins the Norwottuck trail in Northampton. If you start on the Norwottuck trail heading west this trail begins by turning left once you have gone through a tunnel having crossed the Connecticut River and crossed a couple of roads. The other direction - that also is not marked - takes you to the Northampton bike path to Florence / Leeds - more about that in the respective review for that bike path. The Manhan trail crosses over Main Street right by the railroad station and takes you through Northampton - a good interesting ride on to Easthampton and Southampton where it dead ends.

Larkin State Park Trail

Schizophrenic Trail

July, 2020 by e.l.smierciak

Started at the western trailhead on Kettletown Road. Nothing but a single track -- including a climb down to Jeremy Swamp Road to cross and then a climb up the other side. Clearly, decades ago there was a rail bridge here, but it's gone. For a while, the trail is fine, but then another problem on this leg is that the trail becomes virtual impassible for bicycles -- you are trying to ride up a creek bed full of grapefruit sized rocks.

East of Strongtown/CT 188, there is a mix of beautiful gravel surface through the woods with some low spots/mud (we've had some rain). The route is wooded and quiet -- really nice ride. You will likely encounter horses (I passed a single rider and a pair on this ride). Etiquette is to be very careful and slow -- give them a shout as to which side they'd prefer you pass on. Also a lot of wetland. If you're moving fast on a bike, it's OK, but walking you're going to be dealing with A LOT of mosquitoes.

Summary -- with some investment this could be one of the prettiest rides in CT, but there are some real rough/muddy spots.

I can see where this could be a beautiful autumn ride. Will give it a few more tries this season.

Branford Trolley Trail

Too Many Bicyclists & Walk Uninspiring

July, 2020 by sharonstrelzer

The foot bridge and immediate surrounding view very pretty is the highlight. The walk is flat and hard to find. You go under a road with concrete supports sprayed with a lot of graffiti and then leave a crushed gravel path for a concrete walkway over a marsh. The marsh is a habitat for egrets. The path was more for bicyclists, who were impatient about walkers on trail. dismounting for walkers. We skipped the concrete path due to heat and people on bikes

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

Beautiful trail

July, 2020 by pac755art

A beautiful trail, level riding and scenic. Great rewards at the end, places to stop , eat and shop. Can park and lock your bike at trails end. Look forward to it’s completion.

William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail

July, 2020 by pac755art

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

beautiful trail

June, 2020 by e.l.smierciak

Very little elevation change. New section south from Wassaic station is very nicely done, but disappointingly short. Beautiful ride north from the station to Millerton.

North County Trailway

Pretty, but a little loud

June, 2020 by emily.tenenbaum1

This trail is perfect for a long ride—paved, very pretty, nice scenery. It runs parallel to the Saw Mill pkwy so it can get a bit loud. Other than that, it’s really nice!

Putnam Trailway

great trail, but get ready for some closures

June, 2020 by doittomorrow1957

We took our bikes today June 23rd 2020, and someplace in Mahopac the town closed partially the trail, we couldn’t find the way around, wish they put signs for a Detour. Other than that, trail is beautiful

Maybrook Trailway

seemingly closed to the public

June, 2020 by cmp.urquhart

We rode this trail in June 2020. There were signs that seemed to indicate the path was closed but numerous people were entering on foot, rollerblade, and bikes. A number of websites seem to indicate the path is still under construction and not yet open to the public but MTA does not seem to restrict access. We are still unclear.
