    This place is horrible. Even walking would be hard. Yes there are a few flowy sections they only last for ten feet. There are huge hills made of pure sand and it wasn't a good journey. At one spot there was a 50 foot drop to a 60 foot incline made of sand and roots that was increfibly steep. The only thing that says mountain bike is the dirt. There are no features not even berms. This place is not worth it. Just go to better places nearby. (I did the purple trail and the yellow one was just pure flat and nothing interesting)

    Very easy system. As other reviewers note, the system does not resemble what it was 3 years ago. Most single track is gone. Big signs warning you not to go on previous fun trails. Most!y wide truck trail. Good for beginners .

    nice trail system to ride for a workout. it's not very technical, so good for beginner riders. sandy sections on most trails, but nothing too extensive.

    Sandy trails, downed trees everywhere. Not much fun on any of the trails honestly. Beginner rides

    A fairly easy ride and one of the busier trails of Pine Bush because it's on a main road and the reserve visitor center is there so more walkers than the other trails I've ridden here.

    There are several parts to this trail, I rode the purple trail, which was mostly easy terain. There were some steep climbs are sharp descents, but nothing too technical. The one thing to watch out for is that there are many parts of the trail that are closed for ecosystem preservation. Just watch out for the signs

    There is alot of double track and power lines, but also a ton of fun technical single track off the trail. Go with some one whos knows, or use the gps, easy to get lost.
