Very clean! Perfect for a spring walk with dogs. Nice views!
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.
Amazing trail. It’s a great full one or two day trek. I did a 30 mile loop in just over 4 hours, which wasn’t very pleasant to endure, but if you gave yourself ~6 hours you could ride the entire trail (just over 20 miles) in one day, assuming you didn’t have to ride back.
My sons live near this and took me. It was a great ride during the pandemic to get a break from being indoors. Very well planned.
It was a nice walk! Little muddy this time of year, as should’ve expected.
As a dog runner, I have been on most of the local paths. I avoid this one whenever possible. It is way too narrow with little room to pull my dog off to the side when other dogs are approaching. There’s also a lot of dog poop not picked up along the edges, which is ridiculous since they provide bags.
My friends and I recently rode this trail from the Sojourner Truth parking lot in New Paltz to the end in Wallkill, which is 8 miles. The scenery is nice, but not as nice as the New Paltz to Rosendale leg. The surface is mucky so I'd suggest a hybrid or mountain bike. There are a few, not heavily trafficked street crossings.
The trail is straight and level. Pavement is in good shape. Most of the trail is in the shade of trees in the summer. Lots of walkers, but they will move over if they hear you (use a bell or horn). Also a lot of dog walkers during the Tourist Season. Beware of doggy landmines.
The longest section is 1 miles. The other half mile is a scarey crossing of Route 30.
Across the road from the Information Center is a Dunkin Donuts. Good place to have coffee and wait for a friend or use the Rest Room.
The east end of the trail has a Stewarts. That gives you a Rest Room and some healthy snacks, water, and drinks.
Lots of parking at the Information Center.
this trail now goes into the village of New Paltz. two years ago a section was added that went to South Ohioville road to where a diner is (closed the last time I was there). there is a continuation that connects to Wallkill Valley rail trail as part of the Empire State Trail. I plan on checking that out in the next few months. I am pretty sure part of that extension uses some back roads.
I have ridden this in its entirety, usually starting from Midtown. I have taken it all the way north to Van Cordtland park. South of 125th can get quite congested, especially on nice days.
Short piece of trail, but descent views of the Hudson.
I went on this trail in May, and it was the perfect weather. Warm, sunny, and thoroughly enjoyable. Nestled in the city, it is the perfect balance of urban/industrial vibes.
