Review: I rode most of the loops on the east side of the park, thoroughly enjoying the creek crossings. There is a lot of roots and some flow. Signage is excellent at each loop intersection. I did hit the downhill "rimbender" section....it was a blast. Not a lot of real steeps, but enough to burn your thighs for a few minutes. I will definitely ride it again next time out that way.

Review: Harbins is my go-to trail for something local. However, I generally find it to be just an okay trail. I much prefer Chicopee or Blankets creek. I have also been to bull/Jakes mountain and enjoy these trails far more.

Review: A mix of rough singletrack with some banked corners, big whoops, and a downhill run on a granite slope. Some of these trails can be technically challenging with some big climbs and payoffs.

The facilities are very nice and the trails were marked well enough to keep the bikers and horseback apart. If you don't mind exploring, there are a lot of obscure and creative routes.

Review: Don't get bored yet!! This trail has more to offer than you think.
A lot of the reviews on here are fairly accurate except their are actually a few trails that are off the beaten path that a lot of noobs have yet to discover. For example, on the "Advanced Trail" past the 2nd creek crossing, take a sharp right up the rocks and bunny hop over the fallen tree. Take a left and you'll see an alternate very demanding incline up the hill. This will take you to the top of the hill close to where the top of the granite downhill is. Also, after crossing the main creek crossing, take a right up the hill and rock garden and before taking a left towards the 2nd creek crossing, take a right up the hill. You will see granite and moss to the left. Take this uphill to the top and enjoy a fast but rough downhill back to where you started.
Look for Harbins Half Marathon video on YouTube as well. There is a whole other 6-7 miles of trail on the West side that includes a few bridges that connects you to the East side of the trail.
Combining these trails together can get you up to 23 miles of ride time if you loop it right.
Explore a little and you will find even more of these hidden gems. Most of which are not for beginners but if you are up for an adventure and a new challenge, consider these next time you are here.

Review: It took me 4 trips to Harbins to finally decide it's my favorite local spot. The fun is in the back of the park past the creek (make sure you include it in your ride). Can't say much else that probably hasn't been said already. The trail does take rain pretty well, but you do have to watch out for pinestraw throughout while digging in on a turn. Other than that; it's just a fun ride.

Review: Flowing trails, mostly beginner type IMO, other than some roots. Not really anything technical, or too much in the way of climbing either. I mostly ride my rigid single speed here just to get a bit of workout. Ok place to have just 1 gear. Nice facility, parking, bathrooms, etc.
