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!
