Recent Trail Reviews

Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail

Great, paved rail trail

January, 2019 by dwightcheu

The waterfalls near the eastern (Albany) terminus are beautiful. Going east to west (Albany to Voorheesville) you gain elevation, but the trail is never more than a 5% grade and usually less. There's an air pump for your bike tires at the eastern terminus.

South County Trailway

Pretty, But Needs Maintenance

January, 2019 by tehruben

The trail itself is pretty and mostly quiet. Great turns, gradual hills, not a lot of stops. For runners or wider tire cyclists, not bad. As a road cyclists, with a very stiff bike, it can be a bit jarring. Parts (about 3 miles up from Redmond Park) are basically corrugated roads. Extremely uncomfortable. You also have to be very alert to the changing conditions like sudden water and mud, and large unmarked dips and potholes. Really hard to maintain any speed over 17 or 18. Hoping this gets better maintained! Would be a treat to ride.

Clarence Pathways

Nice path

January, 2019 by nashwell98

Nice bike path, but only port a potties were available for bathroom use. Also, path enters a farmer's market with signs asking bikers to walk their bikes through. Who puts a farmer's market in the middle of a bike path?

Bethpage Bikeway

Many Trails in One Place

December, 2018 by slipsoup

This is a nice trail, which passes through the Massapequa Preserve on the southern end. The northern end of the trail is located near the Syosset Long Island Railroad station, which makes it an easy destination for riders from the City. There are some street crossings, easy to navigate. There is one part of the trail that is confusing, where it crosses Sunrise Highway. There is a dental office across the street. When you cross the Highway, continue to the right and the trail picks up in about an eighth of a mile. The Bethpage State Park is huge. There are numerous mountain biking trails in the area. There are bathrooms at the Bethpage State Park parking/picnic area.

I-390 Bike Path

Nice ride, but terrible surface

December, 2018 by cmessenger99

This is a nice segment of bike trail, in both in terms of scenery, and making an important connection. However, the quality of the asphalt is terrible.

EPCAL Alternative Transportation Path

EPCAL and Wildwood connection

December, 2018 by detail_tl

Just a mile or so due North is another EXCELLENT off-road biking destination: Wildwood State Park on Long Island Sound. 700 undeveloped acres of mountain biking and hiking trails open to the public.

Groveland Secondary Trail (York to Alexander)

Groveland Secondary Trail, JM Jones.

December, 2018 by janusmary

I have walked from Griegsville to just shy of East Bethany. I appreciated the fact that the railroad bridges were kept in good shape for walkers. Loved crossing the Oatka Creek and other creeks on the trail. It is a shame that the rocks (ballast) were not properly removed. The places this trail goes are truly lovely. Livingston County especially. I agree with the other commenter that it seems the only people that go on the Groveland Secondary are the very folks that aren't supposed to: ATVers. I stuck with it because I can't resist a trail, and like the places it goes. If the rocks were removed I would give it a high rating. I wonder what would it take to get this trail improved.

D & H Canal Linear Park

The D&H Canal Linear Park Trail is not ATV friendly!

December, 2018 by tedv2010

I was looking for an ATV friendly trail so my girlfriend and I could take a short ride on our new touring bike. We picked a dry but cold Saturday in November. I did my research and it appeared, based on this website, that this trail was open for ATV and/or ORV usage. We drove all the way down from Albany to find out the gates were locked on the trail and there was signage banning ATV, Horseback riding, Snowmobile usage, etc. We checked a couple of access points and it was the same thing. We were looking forward to a scenic tour of that area along the canals with the view of the mountain alongside of us. So, we wasted half a day, gas and tolls, to just basically turn around. TrailLink needs to update the trail description to include just walking, hiking and maybe bicycling. For this, I can only give the trail a 4 star rating.

October, 2018 by lughnerson

I rode this trail a week after it opened in September 2018 because I live here. In the village of New Paltz, the east end is at the bridge over the Wallkill River with a small parklet and benches. This is very close, maybe 100 feet, to get onto the 22 mile, unpaved Wallkill Valley Rail Trail which runs from Gardiner, through New Paltz and Rosendale, to Kingston, NY. Soon to be completed is a bike lane on nearby Henry Dubois Road which will lead to a 20-something-mile fully paved trail of various names New Paltz, Highland, Poughkeepsie, Hopewell Junction. Hudson Valley Rail Trail, Walkway Over the Hudson, and Dutchess County Rail Trail. Having ridden trails all across the Northeastern states, this combined trail is in my top 3 anywhere for quality, beauty and amenities.

The River-to-Ridge is not a rail trail, it is a newly constructed gravel and dirt trail to get bikers off the main roads. There is a nice parking lot, and after you cross the road going west there is a hill and beautiful views of the Shawangunk ridge. At the west end there is access to the private lands of Mohonk Resort. Maybe (maybe not) there will be someone collect fees to ride Mohonk property. The roads also lead to Minnewaska State Park where there are many carriage roads for biking.

Cayuga-Seneca Canal Trail

Ahhh, Swamp

What a great way to get off the road and get on some crushed limestone. Watch that hole in the middle of the trail somewhere around half way.
If it is hot, take a dip in the canal, mmmmmmm... swamp!
