Harlem Valley Rail Trail

New sections open or nearly open

May, 2020 by billblum

Wow! Once open, the Undermountain Road to Millerton gap is going to be spectacular. I note that the northernmost section going south from Undermountain Road to Boston Corners Road, about one mile long, is now open and beautiful. The next two miles going south, to White Horse Crossing Road, includes a gorgeous mile long raised section going through a beautiful wetland. Parts, including that section, are currently paved but construction is ongoing. Later this season this will be the place to ride!!

New Milford River Trail

Beautiful and Fairly Easy

May, 2020 by lughnerson

I rode this trail in 2018 and loved it, the memory of that day, even the car drive getting there, always bring a smile to my face. It is not for bikes with racing tires, but most others will do fine if the region has not had any rain recently. It is not a tough path, even with its few small hills. Beautiful scenery very close to the river, mostly shaded from the trees. The trail seemed to end near a highway bridge where I sat with my lunch right on the river.

With a drive of almost 2 hours, I would not have visited this area without the this trail. If and when the trail is expanded I will be back. Trails do bring tourists and money into new areas, so good job New Milford.

Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail

nice quick ride

May, 2020 by nellyc1970

Decent trail.. gets quite busy. To many people constantly stopping on trail . Biking is tough there on a busy day. Better in early morning or evening.

Air Line State Park Trail

Section closed

May, 2020 by carrie.vezina

Section of the trail at Bull Hill Road is closed as well as the parking lot at this location. No information regarding why this section is closed or for how long. Would be nice if a brief sign could be posted to let users know if work is being done and how long the closure is projected to be. A lot of disappointed people driving and biking here; only to be turned around.

Putnam Trailway

Nice Trail!

May, 2020 by SPanny

My wife and I rode this trail on 5/16/20 from Brewster, NY south to the crossing with Rt 118 in Baldwin Place and back...about 24 miles total. The trail is in good shape, we enjoyed the views of Middle Branch Reservoir, Lake Gleneida, and Lake Mahopac. The trail runs through several towns like Carmel, but between towns it tucks well behind the roads to provide a really pleasant, through-the-woods experience. The trail does have some ups and downs...but none of them were too bad and it was nice to have a little variation from the typical "flat" rail-trail. The most significant "up" was from Brewster south during the first 5 miles or so. A little south of Baldwin Place the trail is a little rough and needs some work, but it's more than passable. All in all, very much worth a trip! Glad to see lots of people out on the trail.

Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail

Windsor Locks Canal

May, 2020 by bktourer1

This trail may closed for a period of time which may change due to raptor nesting. You don't find out till you get there. You can also take the new path over the river to connect to Route 190 East to the shopping area, there are no signs telling you which way to go once you cross the Ct River

Columbia Greenway Rail Trail

Columbia Greenway Rail Trail

May, 2020 by CW4

Work on extending the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail is beginning at Main Street in Westfield. It is now 2.4 miles long and any extension will be greatly appreciated. The downtown extension insures that the new section will be heavily used. The rest of the trail is in excellent condition.

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail

beautiful ride

May, 2020 by deamerica1204

We rode our bikes all the to Southwick, Massachusetts.... what a beautiful ride. Paved trails and amazing scenery. Just asking for consideration if you are going to stop, pull of the paved trail. People tend to stop in the middle not giving consideration to the bikers, joggers and people walking

Airline Trail - Pomfret Center to Putnum

April, 2020 by CW4

Just to keep trail riders informed, there is trail construction work ongoing from the Route 169 crossing in Pomfret to the Qinnebaug River in Putnam. Give it two seasons of construction and this 3 miles section should be done. IT includes 5 road crossings or bridges. That will be the last of the hard work on the Airline Trail.

Still needed is finishing the surface from Station Road in Hampton to South Brook Road at the Chaplin Townline (3.5 miles) and the 1/4 mile section from under Route 66 to the completed section of the Portland portion of the Airline Trail. Lastly, Portland has plans to begin design of the trail section from Camp Ingersol to Route 66.
