Kaaterskill Rail Trail

Nice trail in the northern Catskills

January, 2022 by steve.schwinn

I walked this trail yesterday in icy conditions. Until there is an appreciable snowfall in the area I strongly recommend having traction devices with you. I parked in the lot of the Mountain Top Historical Society (closed in winter) which serves as a trailhead. I can’t add to the prior reviews about the non-winter trail conditions but it’s definitely for mountain bikes only.
At the north end of the trail there is an easy connection to walking-only trails leading to a scenic overlook of Kaaterskill Falls as well as a trail to the bottom of the falls. The trailhead parking lot at that end off of Laurel House Road has portable toilets.

Ashokan Rail Trail

one of the best!

January, 2022 by kleistikow

We biked this round trip , going East to west on a Sunday in May 2021. There was plenty of parking when we arrived at 10 am. As the trail went west it went uphill but the scenery became more and more beautiful. We are looking forward to skiing and or biking it again!

South County Trailway

Needs work

December, 2021 by xyz717

As of 12/31/2021: The South Trail from the Tarrytown Lakes down to Ardsley is paved and a pleasant ride for bikers. At Ardsley it turns to crushed earth and unless you have a mountain bike probably not a good idea. I hope they extend the paving. The trail from the Tarrytown Lakes to Lake Carmel is smooth and beautiful. Highly recommend.

Walkway Over The Hudson

It is an amazing experience!

November, 2021 by bblhed_tl

I am really torn on this trail, on one hand it is an amazing experience and a view of the Hudson you will never forget, on the other hand if it is a weekend this place is jam packed with other people taking in the views as well. This was part of a ride on the Hudson Valley Rail trail all the way to New Paltz, I will review that trail separately. Breaking up the ride by going one way early and coming back about 4 hours later made a huge difference in the crowd level and made a much more pleasant ride. Facilities at the walkway were clean and outstanding, lots of historic information, and there were vendors. There are plenty of places to park, I paid $7 (Summer 2021) to park in the official lot and considering the facility and the zero cost to cross the Hudson in either direction I did not feel it was too much for parking. My only complaint aside from the crowds, was that the vendors packed up and closed long before the bridge closed so that was a little disappointing because I did want to get a shirt, plan accordingly if you are doing this as part of a longer ride. I will likely do this ride again but it will likely be part of a longer ride when I do.

Battery Bikeway

Battery Park Bikeway

November, 2021 by schroec

This is a short yet beautiful bikeway that connects the Hudson River bikeway to the East River bikeway. You bike past large garden areas and have the option to take a quick detour off of the trail and into the park in order to take in views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Staten Island and Governor’s Island.

Ellicott Trail

An Interesting Ride With Lots of Variation

October, 2021 by jgwallis

4 (or 5) stars

On October 28th my wife and I parked in the parking lot of the old Batavia Daily News building, now for lease or sale, at the southwest corner of Industrial Blvd. and Route 33
(Pearl St.) and directly across Industrial Blvd. from the western trailhead.
The trail is as varied as advertised in the TrailLink writeup. It seemed longer than it is as a result of the changes in scenery.
The Ellicott St. section is well signed and safe, but with a traffic level we try to avoid. Directional markers are both above ground and embedded in the sidewalk.
The pleasant, but short section through Elmwood Cemetery was a pleasant contrast to Ellicott St.. We’d never before encountered a rail trail through a cemetery.
The DeWitt Recreation Area, through which the trail travels, is outstanding in its diversity in scenery, side trails and outdoor opportunities.
Near the end of the ride and to lengthen a short ride for us, we took a left at Red Oak Ln. riding through the Oakwood Hills neighborhood, then made a right on Seven Springs Rd. along which we picked up the eastern trail head.
On our return ride, we avoided Ellicott St. by crossing it onto Clifton Ave. from Harvester Ave. and then riding through a residential neighborhood to regain the trail at Evans St.

Heritage Trail (NY)

Perfect Day Ride

October, 2021 by ns4hcxdz8k

We were looking for a ride that provided a good workout, beautiful foliage and a break from the city. The path was straight, flat and paved - so great for all level riders and all age people. The town of Goshen is great. The trail ends (or sort of starts there) depends which side of it you want to start on. There is a portion beyond Goshen in Middletown. To get to that piece - you need to go through the town of Goshen using W. Main Street. You must stop at Sweet Tymes for a treat. Continue to proceed down W Main Street for about 1/4 of mile and on the right you will see the start of the bike path again. You know you have gone too far if you get to the cemetery on the left side of W Main Street. I would also stop in Chester ( you will see the old converted train station) and grab a bite at the Rustic Wheelhouse. Promise it will be a perfect day!

Hook Mountain/Nyack Beach Bikeway

Improved access at the southern end

October, 2021 by steve.schwinn

Updating my July 2020 review, the road down to the Nyack Beach State Park has reopened.
And at the top of the newly reconstructed road to the right of the entrance fee kiosk is a newly constructed foot trail that will take you to the Long Path with access to the Hook Mountain summit with great river views.

Genesee Riverway Trail

Many reviews and trail descriptions fail to make mention of how suitable the trail is for various bikes. My wife and I travel with small, folding, electric bikes, with 12 inch wheels. This was perfect for our bikes. A very memorable ride!
