We started at Hart (the Hart Motel - great motel!) and rode to Country Dairy and back. Loved the farms along the way and passing through small towns. Perfect fall ride, and someday we plan to do the entire Hart to Montague and back ride.

This is a well maintained trail running from Hart to Montague while winding through Mears, Shelby and New Era. The outlook in some parts rivals Northern France. Plenty of places to stop , rest or picnic. Cut along a railroad line, it is almost perfectly flat

This trail goes through orchards, asparagus fields, woods, and neighborhoods. We rode from Hart to about halfway to New Era. It was so quiet and pretty. I don't know that I'd ride it alone just because of the remoteness of some locations. But I'd love to go back-it was such a nice trail!!

This trail was widened and resurfaced during the summer of 2015. I had ridden it before this re-do and enjoyed the trail then. Now, though, it is so much more enjoyable. The trail is so smooth. What a delight! The ride through many parts of the trail is like riding through a deep woods -- sometimes with a gully on... More

With our family of six, we appreciate getting to do things without having to spend more money. This trail is perfect. Although we did not travel the whole thing, the section we saw was wonderful. Trees lined each side so it was shaded and cool and blocked out any sight of buildings or roads. We even followed along an orchard... More

Wow! This is a spectacular bike path. We rode the complete Whitehall to Hart and return and were blown away with scene. The paths are so smooth that your tires hum on the ride! Lots of spots to pull off and enjoy nature if that is what you are looking for plus access to several towns along the way.

We rode on a Saturday and really didn't see many other bikers. The weather was good even though it had rained that morning leaving some of the shade areas still wet with debris. We had a hard time finding where to park in New Era so we ended up driving to Hart, and had some trouble there as well. Signage... More

We cycled from Mears to New Era and back. The trail is so beautiful and we had it to ourselves for most of the trip. It is a very easy ride and there are many places to rest. I would love to come back when the cherry trees are in bloom!

The trail renovation has been completed, and it's all good. Repaving and widening make this trail a premier bike, walk or jog trail. Hoping the snowmobiling does not tear up the surface. New benches signage and stretch stations have also been installed. There are a few new places to visit off the trail..including the Artisan Tap room in New Era,... More

This is a great bike path that has gentle grades (old railroad path) and a variety of country views as it goes through farms and small towns. SMOOTH. Lots of resting places and adequate porta-potties along the trail. All the towns it goes through have restaurants.... and one has a dairy farm with a restaurant. You will enjoy this ride.
