I am only familiar with this trail from Shermantown Rd. to Towpath lane. I walk parts of this path almost every day. The path is in good shape, generally very clean, and not all that well used. The section west of the cement plant (to...More

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.

You have the Feeder Canal on one side, and the Hudson River on the other. There is no grade, so it's just a nice little walk with trees to provide shade. It's paved, so you don't need hiking shoes, and you can bring your dog...More

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.
