    Where is the trail? Followed to Topo map. Mostly roads. A few spots I was able to ride cinder path along the road. Not a mountain bike ride at all. Gave it 2 stars because at least parts were nice views. Erie Canal locks 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 with some rushing water and falls. The topo map went on a dirt road that just ended. Had to use Waze to get back.

    Tried this one out yesterday. The trail is pretty much overgrown. Still a decent ride but I wouldn't suggest traveling to far to check this one out.

    Very cool trail. Always seems to be muddy. Not a lot of drainage along the trail. Seems like ATV's and dirtbikes frequent this trail too. Ends at Flintlock Rd. at the lock 6 canal park

    Trail was fun although it was pretty overgrown in some areas and I was getting hit with tall grass and thorns all over. It was also very muddy which made things alittle more interesting. But with the great views and nice rolling trails overall it was a good ride!

    Love this trail, single track mostly, slightly technical, great views, VERY quiet.
