The canal walk is ok, but is nothing special. For the first mile or so, you're mainly in shade, but then you hit a sunny area. After a little more than the second mile you actually have to walk along the town streets. After about a half mile of walking in the town, we headed back. This was good for... More

Easy walk, bike or stroll recalling an era of water transportation in a paper industry based City. Shaded Wooded trail gives way to the industrial base of Glens Falls and a walk across the bridge to check out the falls might lead to a quick meal in S. Glens Falls or walk up the hill to the many restaurant options... More

A good place to start your ride is at the junction of Richardson Street and Haviland Avenue. Richardson runs N-South. Traveling south, ample parking is located at a sweeping left turn with parking on your right. Walk your bikes down a short but steep slope and across a small bridge over the feeder canal to start your ride. The trail... More

This is a pleasant 20 mile round trip surrounded by water and woods....well maintained and marked.....looking forward to many rides on this trail and can't wait until the foliage season.

The trail is 9 miles one way from Overlook Park in Glens Falls to the end in Fort Edward. I've walked some of the trail, biked some, and snowshoed it in the winter; it's mostly flat. Some parts are paved, some are stone. There are interesting places to see along the way, including Cooper's Cave (from James Fenimore Cooper's "The... More

We started our bike ride in Fort Edward and rode to the locks. When you get to the top turn around for a nice view of the mountains. The trail is a combination of stone dust and black top. You'll have a few streets to cross in Hudson Falls. But, only one with heavier traffic as you near the cement... More

beautifully restored and maintained recreational path, some paved, some stone dust. For any on road, motorists were very supportive of cyclists.

We came here to bike based on the reviews. It was perfect timing because of the foliage. The leaves turned golden yellow in one section of the trail. The whole route was about 4.5 miles long. There were people walking. The route was flat so easy riding along the canal. The best thing was there was no cars! I hate... More

Walked about 4 miles of bike trail that is close to the canal and some parts close to the Hudson river but is in a very industrial area so not a lot of vistas but certainly worth sometime because it seems to be maintained and has hard gravel surface that is great for walking or bikes.

If you are looking for predominantly a flar ride, this is it. Very few hills involved except down by the locks. It starts on Haviland rd where there is ample parking, and the terminus would be the Amtrak train station in Ft. Edward, which in itself is a neat stop for lunch. At one pont you do ride on the...
