HikingGreat!

I wanted a Post-Op hike/walk. The foliage was breath-taking. So much to see and photograph along a leisurely trail, so glad I went. Next year hope to kayak the canal as well!

Great trail along the canal. Nice and flat and quiet except for about a mile in the middle on the road.

Only walked about a mile of this trail from the Canal Feeder Park in Glens Falls. No Covid restrictions that we could see except at Haviland Cove Beach. Nice walk. Must be spectacular in the fall.

The trail is only open for Warren county residents from the beach and down due to COVID. We’re the NYS residents and are not allowed beyond that check point. Very sad that there was no prior notes posted. There is no public toilets at the small parking area there we came from. Not sure how other people can basically use this trail until COVID restrictionists are lifted.

Took a walk beginning at Haviland Beach park through the Betar Byway and back. My pedometer clocked 9 miles. Fabulous, flat walk along the beautiful canal. Can’t wait to go back.

Beautiful wide trail with shade & sunny places... Great views throughout the ride Hudson River on one side & Canal on the other side. At the beginning & end was awesome views but disappointed in the middle it was all town riding not a big fan of riding with traffic.

Very nice, wide trail with shade and sunny places. Lots of nice views. Waterfall. Creek on the one side, canal on the other. Stopped for to wade in the canal for a while then walked a mile or so down to Haviland Cove beach. Lots of friendly people and doggos.

Definitely a nice running/biking trail but if you’re looking for views either go to the beginning of the trail or the end. The middle is mostly all just town and a straight trail. We hiked about 7 miles and turned around due to time but we will be back to explore the other side because we were looking forward to the big fall but wasn’t sure where abouts it was on the 14 mile hike

So would be a four star as the trail itself in great condition. However we could not find the way around the paper mill and city detour as no markings. Started at both ends and cycled until the trail and signage stopped on the roads. Think we missed a middle mile is all. At the eastern end take the right turn past the green swamps for cool wildlife like great blue herons and turtles.

The part between the trailhead and town is beautiful. Town and beyond are pretty awful; at least at first. We abandoned trail near stinky quarry!

The most picturesque parts of this trail are in Fort Edward at the Five Combines Park and east as the feeder Canal meets the Champlain Canal. This area is good for bird watching, walking and biking.

This trail started off beautiful and serene but suddenly took a turn for the dumps when it led us through a busy industrial area. It smelled like burnt hair, popcorn and poop. We got lost in the town the wandered around until we found the trail again, which to our disappointment was only more industrial noise and smells. Do yourself a favor and turn around after viewing coopers cave.

I was familiar with the area, as I grew up there, but it was more active industrially at that time. It's a good level hike or bike ride and connects to Warren County Trail System.

Nice easy trail in town (through a couple towns). Nothing major as far as inclines. Easily accessible from many side streets.
