I live near the Canal Trail in Niskayuna and love it. The view of the Mohawk when traveling from Blatnick Park east towards the Hudson River is beautiful in any season and part of my bike commute to Albany. Yes, there may be times when you have to share the trail and be courteous with walkers, skaters and little kids but we all need to share such a beautiful trail system. I've ridden it from Buffalo to Albany and the section from the Rexford Bridge in Schenectady to the Waterford Flight of Locks is my favorite especially when you spend time riding the dirt trail around Peebles Island and Exploring the dirt trails around Cohoes Falls. Highly Recommended!

Too many people on bikes & in wheelchairs trying to run me over. Great array of birds!

Great flat paved trail for biking and running. Trees lining most of the trail provide some nice shade.

Leisurely walk next to the river on flat ground; great for biking or walking the dog. Nice that you have the option for a short or long walk.

Only walked the Cohoes-Watervliet end of the trail. Very nice, flat and plenty to look at. Motivated me to buy a bike and get on it this summer....

I have ridden every inch of this Mohawk-Hudson Bike Hike trail from Albany to Rotterdam, with great joy. It is mostly a rail-trail on one of the first train lines in the USA. It is also the eastern end of the Erie Canalway Trail which goes to Buffalo with a few on-road breaks.
