From the feeder dam in the west to the five combines in the east, this trail offers varied and peaceful walking, biking, and canoeing. In most places, you would never know you were walking through the middle of a small city. Very nice!

Flat, well-maintained mostly gravel trail (paved in short sections) that runs parallel to downtown Glens Falls. Busy, but not crowded. Beautiful scenery.

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

This is a nice walking trail full of history. My family likes to pack a picnic and just enjoy the sites.

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
