This is one of those of the beaten road great places! Great place to walk, run or just sit. My husband and I love to take a walk and sit and look at the water. Very clean, everyone you pass says hello. Dog friendly! I've walked to the beach but never went in water, but it looks like everyone enjoys!

Good running trail that goes for several miles. Gravel/paved trail along a picturesque canal, with views of the Hudson River at the beginning.

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

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.
