Trail Description
About this trail
Theses trails are very flowy. The trails start out very sandy but change to a much nicer organic soil. Be prepared to wash your bike thoroughly when you finish. By the end of the ride you'll be able to hear your components grinding away! Enjoy!

Review: Very under construction, so that is whybthe 3 rating plus it is a major sand trap haha So the Pine Bush as with every other piece of land they own has decided to clear a lot of this away making it a bloody mess and they have closed a lot of sections, more than that they just made a huge mess of navigating the actual mtn bike trails. This totally has potential, i think when it dries out a single track i found (you cross the only stream there to get to it) will be enjoyable. Will rerate when i try it again.

Review: This place looks like it had great potential. Now seems to ve overgrown and not ridden much. Sandy up to the trails. Some prickers may be because its end of summer. Spring may bring better riding. Bring a macheta!

Review: I went biking here on a beautiful day, November 15th, 2015. We enjoyed the ride, but it was somewhat disappointing as so many trails were closed off. In fact, the only trail open was the double-wide Red loop. Everything else had lots of brush and trees intentionally downed to block the way, including many warning signs (some of them cut down).

I talked to a local biker who filled me in on the whole thing - Basically, preservation efforts are in conflict with people who enjoy walking and biking the trails. Locals have taken to clearing the barricades themselves whenever the stuff is put up so that they can continue enjoying the trails. However, two weeks ago, they went all out in barricading the single-tracks and it's currently impossible to negotiate.

In reading about it after I got home, the town has identified a need to ratchet up efforts to block trail access and enforce violations. So in short, it doesn't look very promising for this area to maintain the single-tracks that a lot of folks have enjoyed. I'm disappointed I missed out on it - by two weeks. It looked promising. There isn't enough trail or fun to be had here at this time to recommend it to anyone from out of town. From 15 minutes away on a nice day like in my case, then it may be worth it for a relaxing bike ride. But what's left of the trail system is not what a lot of people would consider MOUNTAIN biking.

Review: As of July 2015 all trails are open here. Some seem to have been redirected but nothing was closed off. Great riding with some pretty tricky parts for a less experienced rider (like myself) so a good place to go to practice for me. Lot's of sand so as other riders have said be prepared to clean up afterwards.

Still looking for the cemetery though as the names implies. Still need to do 2 of the loops so maybe I'll find it next trip.

Review: Closed for controlled burns as of 20 May 2014. It looked promising though. Will try it next time in town.

Review: Really nice trail. Few small obstacles (logs, occasional bridge). Can get muddy in the lower sections, but most of the higher portions stay relatively dry. Wear gloves/long sleeves in early spring because there are lots of thorns.

Review: Nice quick ridee. I took the red trail to th e blue, then back to the red. The red was pretty sandy at first but gets harder as you go. Its pretty wide and easy going. The blue trail was much tighter and more technical with some big climbs and decents, they are fun and twisty bit be carful, a lot of them have deep sand in a curve at the bottom.

Review: Visiting Albany for the week for work, so thought I'd try out. Yes pretty sandy. But I took off on the blue trail and got pretty torn up and bloodied by the thorn bushes, pushed thru fast stupidly and my arms and shins were bleeding after. It'd be a very fun fast trail except for overgrowth. Probably cool different time of year.

Review: This is one of the best trail here in capital region New York. Push yourself to the limit and I'm sure you will enjoy the trail.
