Well, all those directions alluded to some trail directions. basically there is the hang glide hill road to the top of one hill off 91. This continues as a trail at the top to Spruce pond from which you can follow the directions above and ride the Morgan Hill Rd. to the top and the trails up there. There are also some trails off the road to teh right. All of which go to the top of Tinkers Falls which if you don't take the first one, which is a nasty off camber path that isn't rideable, but take one the two following marked trails, these are some beautiful descents to the top of the falls, really fast steep narly stuff. When you come to the big root watch out! You'll see. From the top of the falls it is a tricky portage up the other side, and then it is a even longer portage to the top of the hill, yet another narly downhill in the opposite direction. From the top there is probably the nicest fastest most incredible trail to Shackham Rd. and the second parking alternative in directions. All right, from the top of Morgan Hill there is the lean to trail that takes you to Shackham Rd. It goes through a gully, back out, down a screaming section of singletrack and across a forest rd. and down to the creek, up the other side to the lean to and then a super rooty technical downhill, a small clmib at the end, across the foot bridge, and up the hill to Shackham Rd. If you go left on the trail off of Morgan Hill, it goes to the top, and hooks up with a handicap truck trail. Where a road splits off to the left there is a trail just down to the left that is new and not authorized yet. Very nice new tight singletrack with some log stunts and steep climbs. This leads back to Eaton Hill Rd. If you continue on the marked Onondaga Trail that you started from on Morgan Hill Road you will follow the handicap truck trail and watch for a marker to the left that cuts back to the truck trail and on to another marker that starts a beautiful rolling singletrack section that crosses the power lines and up the hill and ends at a road. The hiking trail continues, but it isn't worth biking. follow the trail you just rode back. note the power lines, they have a truck trail that is really steep, and it leads to Eaton Hill Rd. where you can trun left and come back to Morgan hill Rd. A good option in wet conditions. morgan Hill is magical in that even when wet, it is rarely muddy for more than some short sections especially neat Spruce Pond. This area has huge ups and downs, some of my downhill/freeride friends do shuttles between Morgan and Shackham Rd. Not a bad idea.
