Corning Preserve bike trail condition

From Justin M: "The bike path along the Hudson from Albany to Watervliet is still unbikeable. There are still trees down at several points and for a few miles there is three to six inches of wet mud on the trail that is impossible to bike in. Figured I'd pass it along in case any one was planning to go for a bike on this beautiful weekend." We heard something similar from Sebastien earlier this week.


I've recently biked the other end - from Cohoes Falls to Union College. It's fine in that direction.

Thanks! Been wondering about that. Glad I didn't head out there.

Thanks for this update! We'd contemplated this part of the path for rollerblading today, but ended up at Lyons Park instead. It was in great condition.

Bah! I could have used this news last Tuesday when I tried to take that path to work. I still have mud on my tires.

Oh well. Thanks Justin M. and AOA for sharing this. I won't re-attempt that ride any time soon. It's unfortunate with all the up-to-the-minute coverage of road closures and re-openings following the storm, no one is really talking about bike paths.

The downed branches blocking the path are NOT an accident - they mean "don't climb over these, runners, because there's totally gross squishy thick mud afterward."

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
