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...

Nice walking or biking trail, well maintained. I did the two mile stretch from the Cooper Bridge to Richardson Street. Nice way to spend a summer afternoon.

The trail is interesting to a point. Some local history is apparent from the fact that this area used to be the main thoroughfare in the area before the invention of the automobile. But at a few times of year the trail follows a fetid feeder canal. Folks in the area have been known to dump garbage in the canal.... More

Try this with your family. Borders the canal on the left and the river on the right. Can be long or short ride on packed surface. Fun, shady, and sunny. Places to stop along the way.

The Feeder Canal Trail is also known as the Lake George bike trail. The trail head in Queensbury on Country Club Rd. (off Quaker Rd) is a great place to begin a beautiful, scenic 16 round trip ride into Lake George Village, exiting the trail across from the Million Dollar Beach and into the state park. Beyond Queensbury the trail... More
