New Trail Reviews

Had a lovely overnight trip on this trail-something we had wanted to do since getting new bikes. Started at Midland trailhead-parked the car behind the courthouse. Pleasant ride to Clare-lots of side attractions to explore, several small towns to grab a bite to eat and no lack of bathroom facilities ! Rode to Clare to spend the night . Main Street is only one block from trail’s end. Doherty Hotel has a special hike/bike package that offered free breakfast, munchies/drinks for the trail and dining credits.I did not want to leave my bike outside and management was kind to lock it in storage area in hotel. Lots of cute shops, bars to explore as well as the famous “ Cops and Doughnuts “ bakery!
The 60 mile round trip was just the right length for a first time weekend trip. Trail was flat, well maintained . We loved it!

Way exceeded my expectations! A very beautiful ride. Well maintained. And the free pumpkins along the way we’re a very nice touch. My only complaint is the lack of parking at the end of the trail near Horseheads. Can’t wait to go again. Thank you for everyone’s hard work in making this trail possible.

My husband and I biked this trail in October and it was great! The trail itself has some soft, sandy spots which make it a bit difficult but we did fine with our mountain bikes. Most of the trail is hard-packed. The scenery is absolutely beautiful! We saw only 1 ATV vehicle, a few other cyclists, and a few walkers. Biking along the river, passing through the covered bridges, and enjoying the fall foliage made this a great day trip for us.

The Worcester and Nashua RR is long gone but the end of the trail in Ayer is still served by MBTA Commuter Rail which provides daily service. You can take your bike aboard all off-peak trains. Enjoy the currently-offered $10.00 unlimited weekend pass to get you there.

I am always leery of trails that don’t show ‘biking’ as an activity, just ‘mountain biking’. I have a trail near me that I detest that is maintained by atv people. It has rocks and mud puddles. So I read the few reviews about the trail and was skeptical, because no one said much about biking. But the photos made me hopeful.

The reviews made me realize what I saw as I passed a parking area and obvious trail crossing on Spring House Road just outside Dryden. This was the western/northern part of the trail that is not shown on Traillink, or even on Google bike map. To my east was a river of grass without any indication of roadbed, other than the tunnel of vegetation on both sides. To my west, it looked to be reasonable trek, with 2 visible wheel paths. I started to the west. You can travel the few miles to Freeville along this path.

This is like the unloved stepchild portion of the trail. The grass is mown. The tree limbs are cleared. There are even benches. But you keep asking yourself, ‘why couldn’t they just put down some stone here and make this a reasonable trail?’ The western/northern end alternates between grass, roadbed and the occasional muddy spot. I own a hybrid bike and still found this trail reasonable, but only because I started out early in the day, with the most energy. Slogging through grass saps your strength pretty rapidly.

Heading back to Spring House Road, I asked myself if I could tolerate the grass that lay to the east. I figured I had it in me, and that it would be no more than a mile to connect up to the mapped portion of this trail. That river of grass is probably a half mile (grass always seems longer!) till you indeed link up with the mapped portion. Initially, the trail is wide and obvious, but as you enter Dryden, you suddenly feel like you are in someone’s side yard. On my return trip, I noted that, if approaching from the south, you would have no idea this northern portion exists because of that side yard you find yourself in.

Nonetheless, I kept going …to find MORE grass along the mapped portion, for the first quarter mile. THEN it got decent.

The southern 3.75 miles of this trail are idyllic. The trail bed itself is reasonable for any bike and the scenery is varied and enjoyable. Numerous beaver dams are within feet of the trail. You’ve got lakes and streams and fields and forests. It has to be some of the most enjoyment I have had per mile.

So, highly recommended southern end…and a reminder that there is a western/northern end, if you are up for a challenge.

This is a beautiful paved trail for biking, running, walking, strollers, and wheelchairs. It is well-kept and offers scenic views--from rolling fields, to bridges, to train cars, to even an old cemetery. My husband and I biked the entire length and back on a gorgeous fall day. It was a really nice ride, but be aware that it is often a false flat trail. One other major thing to be aware of is that you CANNOT access this trail from Mary Harriman Park in Harriman. Your best bet is to access if from Monroe. If heading east on the trail toward Harriman, the trail comes to a dead end fenced off bridge with no access and you're forced to turn around and go back the way you came. Hopefully someday they will fix this and extend it into Harriman for better access. That is my only complaint about this otherwise beautiful trail.

Newly paved trail is now open from the marina to Northern Blvd. This is a great ride especially during the week when it is not so crowded. As another reviewer stated one can extend their ride into nearby Fort Totten.

Ran here while on vacation in October,2018.Very scenic and quiet.Trail surface in outstanding shape considering rugged winters.If you want a trail with steep hills go to Chestnut Ridge Park in Orchard Park.It's about 30 minutes away and will really challenge your running capability.

Hats off the Oklahoma City!!! The trail system around the area is fantastic. Other large cities should go to OC and ride the trail system. The trails are all connected. We started on the Oka River Trail which intersected the River trail which intersected other trails. I did 50 miles and could have done much more. We were only in OC for two days passing through on our trip around the USA. I would rate the OC trail system at the top of trails that I have done in America.

It's a great family trail very easy

Pathway trail is located in an through Whitehall MI. On the North end, the trail connects to the Hart-Montague trail at the White Lake Chamber of Commerce and on the South end it connects with the Fred Meijer Berry Junction trail. The connections are seamless.
This pathway trail is approx 3 miles in length and travels through residential areas, business areas and a wooded forest. There is also a lovely flower garden along the trail. The trail is well marked with map signs along the route.
The wooded area of the trail is through the Alcoa Howmet Woodland Gardens.
Parking is available at the Hart Montague end of the trail and at the Whitehall public library.
Be sure to stop and see the World's Largest Weathervane on the North end of the trail in Montague, located 1/2 mile from the trail. There are places to eat and shop along the trail in Whitehall.
If you have time, drive out to the White River Historic Light Station.

I was recently exploring trails connecting to the Hiawatha, Coeur d'Alene. I drove the section east from Mullan and had difficulty following the route. As mentioned in previous posts, it is not well signed. The turn at the fish hatchery was a guess and then signed 50 yds up that barely noticeable overgrown gravel road. I encountered this problem several times and mentioned it to the host at the Wallace Railroad Museum (which is awesome!). She said that PEOPLE STEAL THE SIGNS! That's very unfortunate. Perhaps they can engrave on posts that won't be so easy to steal?
I wasn't on it for long, but this section is very scenic, remote and worth the effort.

If you are looking for a good long ride, on a great trail, this is one of the absolute best! Over 22 miles in length, out and back makes for a great ride. As a bonus, you can connect seamlessly to the White Lake Trail which also has a seamless connection to the Fred Meijer Berry Junction Trail. You can literally bike from Hart to North Muskegon MI and never leave the trail (s).
The William Field Memorial Hart-Montague Trail is virtually flat, widened in 2015, and asphalt paved in very good condition. Several trail towns along the route are welcoming and accommodating. Each trailhead offers their town visitor information. You can eat in the towns which you will pass through. There are signs noting the mileage from town to town along the trail.
Started in the middle in New Era and headed North to Hart. You will go through Shelby, which offers places to eat and a Dollar Store directly on the trail. Farmlands of fields and livestock and wooded areas. Services are also available in Hart.
Biking South from New Era, to Montague it's more of the same, farms and woods. On the Southern end, is Montague-Whitehall which is home of the World's Largest Weathervane located just off the trail. There are shops and places to eat in Montague-Whitehall as well, including an old fashioned car drive-up hop service. Car or bike for that matter!
Trail ends at the White Lake Chamber of Commerce. When open, they offer local information and clean rest rooms.
At the Chamber you can access the White Lake pathway.
Plenty of parking in Montague on the South end of the trail, and in Hart at the North end of the trail. Smaller lots along the trail route.
Mile 0 begins in Hart and Mile 22 is in Montague.
An all around great trail to spend the day on.

We traveled the trail all the way up to the dam on bikes. It looked like the last mile of the trail going up along the dam was just for hiking. We did not try on bikes. Does anyone know if the last mile is "bikable?"

Lots of scenery change from small towns, to fields, to forests.
