About this trail
Start at the main parking lot. The trail head is at the end of the lot. The main loop is fairly easy, but there are a lot of black diamonds through out. The last 2 are alot of fun and technical

Trail Q&A
Rider Questions


Q: Are there any fees to park and/or ride? -Leah Barber

A: Weekdays are free. $7 on weekends for Green Key Holders; $15 for everyone else. It's free in the off season, and sometimes they just don't have anyone at the booth. You can get a green key at the office in the park, $200/year for non-residents, $50/year for residents (Suffolk County).

Review: Trail was in good shape as always Thanks CLIMB (Concerned Long Island Mountain Bikers). Trail is very easy, do the Black Diamonds they are more like intermediate trails.

Review: Very well maintained single track. Great place to go biking and camping. Very buggy when I went but "welcome to Long Island in July). You need to pay (cash) to access the park. Trails intertwine with campgrounds and park. Access to bathrooms. Wish the trail markers were better marked (but still, relatively easy to navigate)

Review: Fast, flowey, and fun. Blue can be ridden by anyone on any bike with wide enough tires. Blacks are true mountain bike trails but almost zero technical sections. When raining this park turns into one long puddle.

Review: A lot of fun to rip through with nice speed. well maintained. watch out for ticks though. not very technical or super hilly just nice rolling single. the black diamond trail isn't very hard i usually ride blue trails and found their diamonds to be the funnest parts

Review: Cathedral Pines is close to 10 miles of singletack fun. Near 6.5 miles of main loop which is relatively flat with a decent amount of roots and switchbacks. Lots of Pine around hence the name. 3.5 miles of diamonds allow for some quicker movement through more flowy sections with decent downhills considering the relatively low elevation of the terrain. The 3 biggest hills are relatively close to each other in the same diamond section allowing for hammerheads to pace thru quickly testing their endurance that day.

Some wooden features exist in the form of two skinnies, 1 short bridge, a few log piles.

Good trail for a beginner to learn the basic skills of mountain biking allowing them to tackle some elevation and mild technical features.

Review: i'm a beginner and this is the first trail i've tried. It was easy and an absolute blast. even the black diamonds were alot of fun for someone not experienced in riding. (i did not do the last 2 BD) if your not in shape there are alot of bail outs that can get you back to the car so your not locked in the the whole trail. but i recommend not giving up, it is a truly beutiful, fun and peaceful ride.

Review: This trail is not overly technical. It is perfect to get out and take in a good ride. Rated high due to the fact that it is marked very well and maintained by CLIMB. Black Diamonds along the way can change up the pace if you like and add about 3 miles. But if your a beginner or just want to take it easy this place is smack in the middle of Long Island and easy to get to. Plus they have never bothered me for any type of pass. ( Sign states you need green key). Enjoy!

Review: Perfect for an after work spin. This trail allows for a rider to ride over 10 miles or as little as 5. Although no section is extremely challenging, the trail offers rider various section each with a different feel. From the long, swooping roller coaster feel on the Boundary Loop and the steep (although short) climbs of the "3 sisters." The trail is in excellent shape, clean and the large parking lot allows for pre and post ride fun.
