Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway

Ocean breezes and highway sounds

August, 2018 by lughnerson

Thursday, August 09, 2018, 90'F and humid
Yeah, a good ride, which connects via tunnels under the highway to Jones Beach and a more direct connection to the 5-mile bike path that goes north to the mainland. Get sweaty then enjoy the salty ocean beach waters. A go

Jones Beach Boardwalk

NIce, short, right on the beach!

August, 2018 by lughnerson

Thursday, August 09, 2018, 90'F and very humid.
After slogging through the ridiculous Long Island traffic, I rode here and the the other 2 connected trails, which are all nice. You reach the other 2 paths via tunnels under the highway from the Jones Beach parking lots. I have a hard time believing the boardwalk is 4 miles long though. Get nice and sweaty then go in the lovely, salty ocean waters.

Keuka Outlet Trail

Trail closed near Pen Yan

August, 2018 by mathis.scm

Trail is CLOSED! About 1/2 mile from Pen Yan the trail is washed out and closed. I tried to find a way around the closed part without success.

Heritage Trail (aka Orange Heritage Trail)

Smooth trail; pleasant.

July, 2018 by dcar777

We were driving home to PA from CT and stopped to stretch our legs on this trail, so we didn't ride the full length. We started at Goshen and there was plenty of parking in the municipal lot that sits right at the trail head; this was a Monday afternoon, but there was still plenty of parking (thank you to the town for providing free parking!).

The trail is nicely paved and very well maintained. The first two miles were a bit noisy because the trail runs parallel to a busy highway, but after that it was quiet and relaxing. We went a bit beyond Chester and turned around. (Unlike some other reviewers, we didn't find Chester particularly charming.) The trail was flat, easy, well shaded, and relaxing, and we were grateful to the people who keep it in such good condition. Our only (VERY minor) complaint was that close to Goshen the trail sometimes had the feel of riding moguls, probably because tree roots are growing beneath the asphalt. Overall, we would recommend the trail.

After riding, we left our car in the municipal lot and walked two blocks to the Sunshine Cafe. Although the signage made us think it was just a juice bar, it had a nice menu--great paninis and a long list of specialty burgers. We recommend the restaurant highly.

Black Diamond Trail

Better signage, more trail please

July, 2018 by forrest3

The trail itself is great, especially the middle section from miles 3-5. There one can experience some of the wildness our country once had. Tall dead trees brought to life by ivy. Roads and 'civilization' not noticeable.

Signage not good, many intersections of 'Black Diamond' and 'Stop'. Mile markers every 1/4 mile are handy.

Main issue: finding the trail. The southern Cass end is somewhat obscure, but the northern Taughannock falls end is even worse. Need a detailed map to locate it.

The Black Diamond trail should be continued northward. It would run through a T'burg farmer's land (Black Diamond Farm), and could be extended all the way to Rochester?

South County Trailway

Not as bumpy as others claim

July, 2018 by vinstranges

After reading some of the reviews I was prepared for a disastrous trail. Yes, its a little bumpy in spots but I felt it was mostly smooth. A couple of places are semi-rough but it wasnt that big of a deal.

Also, getting to it is a little tricky if youre just searching on google for directions. I found the best launch point to be at the northern most end of the South County Trail (just south-east of the Tarrytown Resovior). Drive your car to and get off at exit 23 of the Saw Mill Pkwy. There is a park and ride right there. Park your car and head south on your bike for the South County Trail and North for the North County trail.


Heritage Trail (aka Orange Heritage Trail)

A rough start but a great finish

July, 2018 by robert.richter89

I always attempt to start at one end of a trail and ride it to the end. According to the description the trail starts in Harriman which may have been the case at one point but as of July 2018 is not so. As others have said the trail ends abruptly at 12 miles and does not go to Harriman. I'd recommend you start at Crane Park in Monroe, it is easy to find and offers plenty of parking.

As far as the trail itself the scenery was average. The trail itself is all paved and mostly flat so it made for easy riding. The towns off of the trail are very quaint, I'd highly recommend walking around Goshen and visiting Chester for its local brewery. If you'd like to extend your ride try to find the unpaved extension in Goshen. It is single track and about two miles long so I'd take a mountain or hybrid bike.

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

Beautiful

July, 2018 by mytraillink88

From Wassaic to Copake, free parking in Wassaic train lot on weekends. Goes through a few small towns with bike shops including one in Copake. Lots of places to eat in the towns, some country roads tie the rail trails together, a few hills but nothing brutal, beautiful lake, plains, and frams views, and if you don't mind a small hike, check out Bash Bish falls in copake, worth the hike.

Wallkill Valley Rail Trail

Country road

July, 2018 by mytraillink88

Nice ride! 44 miles round trip from Denniston road, Hybrid or mountain bike recommended. Great views from bridges. Surprising cold breezes from caves welcomed on hot days. Some muddy spots but overall very ridable.

Cross Island Parkway Trail

Closed for two years now, to all traffic from marina to Northern BLVD

William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail

Wonderful trail system

July, 2018 by darlad.da

I traveled from CT to come try this trail. Started cycling in Hopewell Junction and did the Dutchess trail, then the Walkway Over the Hudson, and the Hudson Valley trail out and back for 36 miles. Took a snack break then went back out to the Walkway and back for a total of 65 miles. Beautiful trail, clean and well kept and super clean bathrooms in Hopewell Junction. Definitely worth the trip. Hope to go back in the fall for autumn colors.

Joseph B. Clarke Rail Trail

Rode the trail yesterday for the first time. Nice ride for an old guy like me. I started at the Oak Tree Road entrance and took it to the end and back. It’s a perfect trail for an older biker like me to get there daily exercise.
