  The Mohawk Trail Bikeway, travels eastward along the Mohawk River from the Town of Niskayuna, through Colonie, Cohoes, and Watervliet, and along the Hudson River to the Corning Preserve in the City of Albany.

"The first leg of the Mohawk Trail Bikeway, a 5.5 mile section constructed on the abandoned New York Central Railroad bed, stretches along the Mohawk River westward from the Town Park to the Niskayuna town line. Locally, bicycling enthusiasts can travel eastward along the Mohawk River from the Town of Niskayuna, through Colonie, Cohoes, and Watervliet, and along the Hudson River to the Corning Preserve in the City of Albany.Historically, Colonie's Bike Path is the old right-of-way of the former Troy-Schenectady Rail-road. It was primarily a passenger line but was also a hauler of freight, such as straw, ice, and sugar beets from nearby farms. Just beyond the Niskayuna Town Line, about .3 of a mile, is the old Railroad Station which the Shakers helped to build so they could ship their brooms, seeds, canned goods and agricultural products across the country. Today, the path is used every season by joggers, bikers, walkers, skaters, birders, photographers, and nature lovers." Mohawk-Hudson Bike Path | Albany  website and more . . .

Long Path Trail 27 - 31: Hiking / Biking Northern Catskills

 
  Long Path Trail 27 - 31: Hiking / Biking Northern Catskills

"As the Long Path heads west and then north, the tall mountains of the Catskills are soon left behind; they become lower and lower until they are mere hills standing above the plain. Much of the trail now parallels the Schoharie Valley, an important route into the Catskills from points north. Early Dutch settlers made their homes here; there are many reminders of their past in the names of the places one passes. A major feature of the area is the reservoir complex maintained by the New York State Power Authority. In addition to hydroelectric power, the Schoharie Reservoir is a member of the great Catskill water reservoirs that supply distant New York City with clean drinking water."

  Long Path Trail 32 - 36: Hiking / Biking Capital District

"These northern sections of the Long Path slope down from the edge of the Catskills into the Mohawk River Valley. The hills of the western sections give way to gentle rises and falls shaped by glaciers and water punctuated by sharp cliffs of escarpments formed by tilted rock layers. Most of the lands have been settled for a long time and have remained productive farm or forest. Much of the trail passes through nature that has been coerced by civilization to behave in certain ways, either by being farmed for generations, or used as a managed forest for the supply of lumber."
