Trail Description
About this trail
Ithaca was selected as a top 5 place to live for mountain biking by Bike magazine in 2002. This is probably the best of the nearby state lands. Many miles of technical singletrack with a multitude of fellow riders on any nice day. Numerous man-made obstacles especially in Area 51. Trails are maintained by a local bike club working with DEC. Located in the Finger Lakes region of NYS plenty of wineries and microbrews to sample and Ithaca has a great scene in which to enjoy the night as well as great places to shop. Shindagin is probably the premiere place to bike in central NY.

Review: Some of the best elevation in a 10 mile loop in the lower peninsula and not a far drive for Metro Detroiters

Review: Awesome, varied trail system with lots of worthwhile mileage. Blue trails are more technical and get sloppy after a rain, red and yellow trails are more flow and drain better. Top notch trail work by Cycle CNY; check their facebook for an up to date map. Most trails are marked, but the connections between them can be hard to spot. Almost all trails can (and should) be ridden in both directions.

Review: Rained for 3 days before we went last week. Red trails were 3-4 inches deep in mud. The yellow were great, #1 was a rush. Going back!

Review: Rode this trail with my nephew. It was difficult to find the trail head. We stumbled across blue 5 and then blue 2. A little more searching found blue 1. It would be helpful to have a rough drawing of the trails.

Review: The part I rode (blue trail mostly) was pretty and peddaly. The most challenging thing about it was that the woods were so wet that the roots were slick as ice (note that it wasn't a particularly wet day or week, it's just that this forest moves and retains a lot of water). Lots of balance practice and cardio work. The IMBA trail is a great descent.

Review: Lots of tight singletrack with nice descents, roots, jumps, berms. Not to may drops. These trails have a great flow to them and are very fast in places. Lots of man made features. Very well maintained. Blue trail has a poor drain off and can be wet in spots. In general probable the best trail I have wriden in NYS for xc and all mountain biking.
