This is a very popular path. Lots of dog walkers, baby strollers, bikers, and walkers. Bikes, rollerblades, and skate boards are limited to 10 mph, which makes sense when it's busy. There are a couple places where you can go off the trail to explore...More

2.1 mile paved trail. Well maintained. Clean restrooms at both ends. Level, no hills. Also 1.75 paved trail at opposite end. Perfect for runners or walkers of all ages.

If you want a nice, flat walk, with friendly people, pretty trees, a historic building at one end, restrooms at both ends, this is your place. Events and races are held often at the Rail Trail, and it just always feels good to be there,...More

The Vestal Rail Trail is a real asset to the area! There is a 2.1 mile section of paved trail that follows along Route 434, the Vestal Parkway. It has recently been designated as part of the longer Two Rivers Greenway pedestrian and bike path....More

There are so many good things about this trail--ample parking, great location that's convenient to get to, well maintained, free of charge. I especially like the Coal House Cafe at the start (or end, depending on where you park) of the Trail. The restaurant has...More

Great walking, biking, rollerblading, pet walking and playground on the east section of the trail. Easy access as you can park at opposite ends of trail and it is well maintained. Trail etiquette is a must as the trail is not that wide and there...More
