You have the Feeder Canal on one side, and the Hudson River on the other. There is no grade, so it's just a nice little walk with trees to provide shade. It's paved, so you don't need hiking shoes, and you can bring your dog too.

This is a nice meander along the feeder canal bringing you into town. The gravel path is well maintained and although it is well used it is not crowded.

Easy and relaxing either way you go, by bike or by foot. This is a little, somewhat hidden treasure in delightful Glens Falls, NY.

I have utilized this trail usually by bicycle multiple times over the years; the trail is quite flat most of the way except to the very end in HF by the Five Combines which is the original canal lock system (and is quite pretty) and further north in Queensbury along Glen Lake and Lake George. It is a non-motorized trail... More

On a hot day, it can be quite buggy, but it's a really nice place to ride bikes--peaceful and quite lovely.

You can get on the trail at different points. There are just as many walkers as bikers. The trail is wide, easy terrain, suitable for strollers. Mostly shaded. Benches along the trail to sit and enjoy the view or have a picnic

Great running venue song the canal. Nice and flat, away from traffic for the most part (small section on sidewalk next to road as you cross over into South Glens Falls). Typically not a very crowded path. Good for running, waking or biking.

The Feeder Canal offers views of the Hudson on one side and the canal on the other. The trail has lookout points throughout with river access and benches. It's a great place to take a leisurely stroll or jog, in nature. With roadside access and parking along the trail, it's the perfect place to enjoy some time, outdoors.
