Explore the Empire State Trail and join Parks & Trails New York for Bike Your Park Day on October 1, 2017! Parks & Trails New York will host a 21-mile roundtrip ride as part of Adventure Cycling Association's Bike Your Park Day to celebrate National Public Lands Day .

Parks & Trails New York will lead a ride from a park, through a park, and to a park. Our ride, "Explore the Empire State," will begin in Albany's Corning Preserve, travel to Peebles Island State Park along the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail (part of the Erie Canalway Trail and the recently announced statewide Empire State Trail), and then return to Albany. Before riders return to Albany, a representative from the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor will lead walking tour of the early 20th Century Matton Shipyard.

The ride is free to join, but requires registration.

Looking forward to seeing you in Albany!
