Love this place, trail off the beatten path from the city just miles away. quiet and peaceful and beautiful during summer months. Can't wait to see it in the fall when we go back. Lots of hidden photo ops

From the feeder dam in the west to the five combines in the east, this trail offers varied and peaceful walking, biking, and canoeing. In most places, you would never know you were walking through the middle of a small city. Very nice!

Flat, well-maintained mostly gravel trail (paved in short sections) that runs parallel to downtown Glens Falls. Busy, but not crowded. Beautiful scenery.

This is a nice meander along the feeder canal bringing you into town. The gravel path is well maintained and although it is well used it is not crowded.

Easy and relaxing either way you go, by bike or by foot. This is a little, somewhat hidden treasure in delightful Glens Falls, NY.

On a hot day, it can be quite buggy, but it's a really nice place to ride bikes--peaceful and quite lovely.
