Summary:
I ride these trails a few days a week- it is my "local". The trails are frequently wet and muddy, with some glass here and there. The singletrack is fun, but not that difficult. Care should be taken when riding the section along the top of the cliff.

Recommended Route:
I basically ride the same route as the folks above- there are lots of other trails in this area, some of which are rideable and some of which are not. There are some additional trails on the other side of the state boat launch area.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Colonie Bike Path (single track intersects it a various points from Colonie out to Niskayuna).

Summary:
very close to the edge of a 100ft.drop off, don't take the wife unless you want to lose her! broke my new bike's rear derailler on part of a little used trail there.very nice veiw of the falls(not running on the morning I was there)

Recommended Route:
start at the park, across the street from st. ann's church in the north side of waterford.there are trails leading in from there. follow the trail along the river till you come across riverties grove.(summer camps)cross the steel bridge over the canal and take the flight lock road back into waterford it's a nice loop that doesn't take to long.

Summary:
best place to see the cohoes falls, you are literaly on the top of the falls (very impressive) the trail is so close to the edge that you could easily be thrown off and die. Very good single track keeps you on the top of the cliff. Lots of water and mud. The pit is awsome to jump into and back out of. Natural half pipe

Recommended Route:
Up and back again. end on the bansi trail

Other recommended trails in the same area:
the cabins
