Albany Hudson Electric Trail

I am interested in riding the Albany Hudson Electric Trail, I have seen the cues on the Empire State Trail , and the AHETRAIL.org,
If anyone has better cues it would be appreciated. Info can be PM to me
If you have ridden the trail, are the turns for off trail well marked.?

Thanks

I'm curious about this trail too. Would love to see it mapped on Google Maps or something.

As a start there's traillink (Rails to Trails):
https://www.traillink.com/trail-maps...lectric-trail/

That will give you a map overview of the trail. I believe you need an account to see maps.
You could fill in details with Google Maps, Ride With GPS or whatever website you prefer.

Thanks. I also found that it's mapped as part of the Empire State Trail:

I have a lot of that info but it's not too detailed. Heading out to Nassau trailhead tomorrow to check for myself.
Per the town of Naussa, 10 Fairgrounds St. is the closest to the trailhead. Gonna ride to East Greenbush one day and will head South another day
The FB page doesn't have any recent postin
Will post info as soon as I can when I get back

I rode from Nassau to Rensselaer today on the trail. Best place to park is at the town common. Tables/pavilion no porta potties.
10 Fairground St or 7 John Street good addresses to use.
Ice Cream spot right on trail and Cumberland and pizza nearby.
Trail in great condition except one bad street.. Large parking lot at Nassau Lake
Long up and downhills about for several miles, not bad unless there is winding
Well signed and many ped/bike crossing lights
After crossing I90, Dunkin / gas ad General Store.
The trail through neighborhoods on roads are quiet.
At about Miles 10,5 & 6. Stewarts Store ad gas stations right off trail for food
Trail ends on a street in East Greenbush, You can follow the on road signs all the way to Rensselaer (some long downhills)

there were few people walking / biking the day I parked i Nassau and headed North. I have driven to Rensselaer a few times and rode both the Mohawk Hudson and the Albany Helderberg Trails with no problems. The trail was in excellent condition with a lot of long gradual up & downhills.
The section from Nassau is either residential or i wooded areas,
I felt safe

Wife and I have ridden the trail from Hudson north, but only about halfway. Real nice riding, few hills when you ride on roads but otherwise not bad grades. We parked in the lot behind Taco Bell ( trail is in back well marked). It's mostly paved/ crushed stone from there north. We plan on starting further north next time and check it all out.

We rode from Nassau to Hudson and stopped at the Taco Bell for snacks.
At about 6.5 Miles there is a small convenience store and Niverelle Trailhead parking
At Mile 10 (est) there is a large farm stand then Stewarts. After Stewarts there is
Velodomestique Bike shop ( well stocked / closed Sunday ) and a bagel/sandwich shop next door..
Paved trail ended behind Taco Bell.
Lots of ups and downs on the trail and maint. was going on.
Check out the waterwalls and dams along the way

Check Smiles for Ice Cream in Nassua just North of the Town Common in Nassau
Many farms along the way. Not one Porta Potty from Nassua to end of line
