Trail Description
About this trail
Very narrow and tight turns. Intermediate to advance singletrack. Some sandy fire roads. Several diamonds with some awesome moguls. You better have good slow speed handling skills. The trail is new and is somewhat soft. Needs to be packed down. There are descent signs throughout. Good short workout.

Update: Stay off closed section (East side) which was routed on private property. Closed section is clearly marked and blocked.

Review: Very well built. Super flowy. Can keep your speed up most hills. And down hills you can most of the time keep your speed with good burms. Very well packed. Rode in the semi wet winter conditions and it was still wonderfull and couldnt ask for better traction. I definitely had fun.

Review: I enjoyed myself. They are really nice cut trails, smooth and flowy, packed nicely. Not very technical compared to what im use to in West Virginia. You can really keep your speed with the burms. Its a fun intermediate ride. I give it 5 stars solely on the location. They coudnt have built the trails any better for their location.

Review: Probably my favorite LI park. It's tight and fast.. I wouldn't consider it advanced, but it's super fun. I take some of my friends new to MTB there because I can have fun going fast, and they don't feel overwhelmed with hard stuff.. it's also impossible to get lost.. very well-marked trails and maps in the middle. Once you ride it a few times you'll know how to hit every trail without stopping.

Review: Excellent, tight and technical. Fast downhills that go on forever! Well marked trail system; I am an intermediate rider and did the black diamonds no problem.

Review: Some of these sections, the trees are too close together. If you use 780mm bars and want to ride fast, can be tricky and dangerous. Trim the trees!

Review: In my opinion, this is the best trail on Long Island. Growing up in the area, I never would have expected this. It's a fun, fast, winding trail that I ride every chance I get. It's well maintained, never too crowded, and has a mix of trails. Just great, flowing fun.

Review: Trails are well marked and well maintained. The Black Diamond ratings maybe a bit too high. I consider myself an intermediate rider and I did just fine on the black diamond trails. The best part of this ride is the eclipse! I should have run through it a couple more times!
