An absolute must to enjoy the beautiful scenery in the Catskills! The whole operations was run smoothly from reservations to the organization of the trip itself. The staff is very friendly and ride was pleasant alongside the river. Thank you for a great experience! We will definitely look for other rail adventures on future trips.

Very disappointed. Did the 6:30pm session and there was only fifteen minutes of light. So now we’re pedaling through a pitch Black Forest for over an hour with no way to get off. This session should be eliminated. We paid $180 for quad. What a waste!
