The Huckleberry Trail

Bike, walk, cross-country ski or snowshoe on a 2.3 mile path which is made from a historical railroad track of the Ulster & Delaware and Canajoharie & Catskill Lines.

The trail is designed to reuse railroad right-of-ways originally owned by the Ulster & Delaware and Canajoharie & Catskill Lines. These railroads were historically used to transport tourists from new York City to the Catskill Mountain Resorts. Residents and visitors use the trail for biking, walking, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.

The view consists of wooded areas, streams, a golf course, residential homes, and a lake. Make a pit stop along the trail to enjoy fishing in the streams or skipping rocks along the water. About two-thirds of the way you will find a playground near Rip Van Winkle Lake. The park includes a skate park, handball court, volleyball court and basketball court.

The bike path currently starts in the east at Clum Hill Road, next to Cortina Valley in Haines Falls, then travels around part of Rip Van Winkle/Tannersville Lake, and exits at Bloomer Road on the west in Tannersville, a distance of 2.3 miles. 

Park on Lake Road, next to park.
