Rail Trails #9

I have a goal of riding every named Rail-Trail in New York State. There are many more railbeds not used for trains anymore which are also ridable. They are usually unnamed, unsigned, and unpublished. I speculate that this is because the owner is either indifferent or away. I've ridden some of these but I'm more interested in getting the named trails ridden first. I'm maintaining the list of NY rail-trails on my Rutland Trail website.

I'm also uploading them to OpenStreetMap.

Rode the Phillip Rayhill trail in September and the D&H Trail in October. Rode the Erie Canalway Trail end-to-end, which is all towpath west of Utica, but east of there it picks up the West Shore railroad. Also, back in October of 2011, I rode most of the "Lehigh Valley Linear Trail", although it doesn't seem to go by that name. Also, finally bicycled the Walkway Over The Hudson. I had walked it twice already, but it's more fun to bicycle.

Trails I've ridden:
