Excellent experience on this fresh paved trail. The scenery of the ponds and mountains in the distance was worth the trip.
As others have mentioned, this is a rough trail. Although somewhat scenic, it requires a lot of vigilance to slog through the gravel and overgrown path. We have hybrid tires, so perhaps mountain bikes would offer a more comfortable ride. The high point of our trip was staying at the Stamford inn and eating at the Millpond Inn.
I rode the southern half of this trail from Millerton to Wasaic the first week in October on a 75° afternoon. Beautiful ride on a beautiful day.
About a 45 minute ride on the Erie Canal path ,starting at the Medina lift bridge, through farmland and villages (Middleport, Gasport) herons that are absolutely not afraid of you! Beautiful in the fall!
just walked the D & H trail from granville center to middle granville. really enjoyed the walk out toward middle granville but on the way back while walking through the farm (which was a delightful experience on the first trip through, seeing calves and cows) but then were charged by two pitties which attacked my dog and knocked me down. Luckily I had an umbrella and was able to get up and get away and down the trail. the dogs followed for a while but then returned to the farm. Too bad because was a very enjoyable walk until this. I just hope these two dogs dont really hurt someone....
This path would be great if work were done on it. Road bikes won’t make it. You basically need a mountain bike with suspension. I have a hybrid bike with suspension and wide tires but it’s still a difficult ride. The scenery is nice but you have to pay a lot of attention to the path.
Rode the 13 miles from Orphan Farm Rd to Millerton and back. At the northern end, at Orphan Farm Rd is a large parking area adjacent to a small farm, a solar panel field and a glamping site. No one there at 8am that Saturday but half a dozen cars upon my return at 11. Likewise, I had the trail practically to myself until I neared Millerton and found it moderately traveled by later that morning. The asphalt trail was in very good condition and there are a few boardwalk sections as well, also in very good condition. The environs are beautiful with forested sections, farm fields, wetlands and vistas of the nearby hills. Not more than two miles from the north end is the Depot Deli, near the entrance to Taconic State Park, where all manner of beverages, ice cream and snacks can be found. Breakfast at Oakhurst Diner in Millerton is highly recommended. Clean public bathrooms can be found just behind the schoolhouse museum beside the trail after crossing the main street.
I rode the trail from Pittsfield to the end in North Adams and back on 8/5/23. The trail is paved and in good condition and restrooms at the Pittsfield trail head were clean and working fine. Nice scenery including lakes and the Berkshires- I was able to finally identify Mt Greylock after the morning clouds had dissipated. The grade is gentle and I was able to keep up a consistent pace for the ride.
Asphalt smooth and trail is terrific. Easy, flat trail with some water views passing Silver Lake/Pittsfield.
Nice trail through the woods that opens up at the end at the boat launch for the Harriman Reservoir. Definitely not .5 miles; more like 3 miles out and back.
Parked in Bloomville and traveled 7 or 8 miles. E bikes with wide tires. There are spots that are a little rough because larger stone base, but they are minimal. Trail is a real beauty. We did see 2 UTV’s, first one was rude. Also gave right of way to a horse and rider. We were concerned the whining of our e bikes might freak him out. We pulled over and shut them off. Beautiful horse, he looked thankful. We’ll be on this one again, especially when the leaves are changing. Canopy covers lots of the trail, so you can get cooled off.
This is a great trail but if starting from Hillsdale their is no signage to get from that part of the trail to the other part. It’s better to start at the Orphan Road trail head. However at Hillsdale there is a great brew pub. You will want to stay on the trail though and not walk about in the woods. There are rattlesnakes about and a very large on was warming itself on the path!
