Aside from the luxurious interiors and fantastic amenities, one of the best parts of living at Rivers Ledge is the location. Your new home is just a short drive away from Schenectady, Albany, Troy, and Saratoga Springs, but one of the best geographic perks of our luxury apartment community is its proximity to the Mohawk River—and the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail.
What is the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail?
The Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail is a paved, multi-use path that covers an 11 mile stretch between Albany and Schenectady counties. It doesn’t require recreationists to travel along busy roads, with the exception of a few small sections, and is also part of the 750-mile Empire State Trail, which runs from Buffalo to Albany and New York City to Rouses Point.
Why Choose the Trail?
Because the majority of the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail is separate from roadways, it’s much safer for kids, runners, walkers, and bikers of all ages. The trail is also located very close to several historical and cultural attractions, including the Plotter Kill Aqueduct, the Governor Yates House, and the Mabee Farm Historic Site, making for easy access to these interesting locales. Plus, much of the bikeway runs alongside the beautiful Mohawk River, meaning you’ll enjoy incredible views as you traverse the trail.
Best of all, the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail runs directly adjacent to Rivers Ledge, so it’s easy to hop on and go for a jog or a spin.
Tips and Tricks for the Bike-Hike Trail
In order to stay safe on the trail, it’s best to walk, run, or bike only during the daylight hours. No one wants to take a nasty spill in the dark! Speaking of spills, we would encourage you and your loved ones to always wear a helmet when biking.
When passing others, be sure to do so on the left, just as you would on the road. Please don’t litter, and if you decide to bring Fido, make sure you bring waste bags to clean up after them—and dispose of them in the proper location.
Also, remember that certain parts of the trail cross roadways or require biking along them. Use added caution in these sections, especially if you bring the little ones along, and always keep a close watch for motorists.
There are maps of the trail online, so you may want to screenshot the map on your phone—or even print it out for easy reading.
