Trail Description
About this trail
Kudos to the Victor Parks and Recreation Department and Trailblazers Bike Shop for developing this dedicated mountain bike area.

Sign in with a permit at the trailhead. There are maps available also, although not the easiest to interpret when you are out on the trails. For example, some of the trails are apparently designated one way, but it is not easy to determine which trail you are on and whether you are going the right direction. Some trail head markers with trail names and directional markers would help. Despite the ma**hortcomings, the trails are well marked once you are on them. The trails traverse some beautiful areas under the canopy.

There are several paths from the parking lot up a relatively short but winding singletrack to a large open meadow with a doubletrack path around the perimeter. There are twelve to fifteen trails off of the meadow. They are marked like ski trails with easy, intermediate and black diamond. The trails offer a good variety. The more difficult trails have obstacles, steep uphills, switchbacks, a lot of off-camber areas that are difficult when wet. There are some nice log traverses that are built up. The volunteers that built the trails put some thought in to making them a challenge and to keeping riders on the designated paths.

This area offers several hours riding without covering the same area twice, except brief returns to the meadow to locate the next path. The variety of trails will appeal to riders of different skill levels. There are additional trails in the making as evidenced by the flags outlining proposed routes. This venue will only get better with time and use!

I would compare it to Tryon Park or East Bay, but with a greater diversity of trails. Best of all, this is a park where mountain bikes are not only permitted, but are the focus! Enjoy!

Review: These were a nice set of trails, not far off the tollway, when we were driving home to the midwest from VT. We were glad we chose to stop here. The trails don't cover a large area of land, so it doesn't take too long to get a sort of feel for the layout. We were just trying to ride and not repeat trail, and it wasn't too hard to do. It's not really clear if any of the trails are one-way, but we didn't run into any issues. These are built on a hill, so there are a few minutes of climbing and you're at the top, and then it's a few minutes riding whichever trail down, and then starting that process over. Switchbacks, yes! The skill level here has quite a few green and blue trails, with a few black & double black. This place is one where the green trails are actually enjoyable to people that have more skills instead of being a boring double-wide ski trail. I appreciate when a rider of any ability can enjoy greens. The blacks aren't too crazy, and worth a try if you're comfortable on the blues.

Review: This was a fun place to get off the turnpike for a ride. I happened to be there on trail day and volunteers were clearing snow and leaves from the trail. I could feel the love. Couldn't go real fast in the conditions, but has some nice flows. Also some technicality in the black downhills. Fun place and I'm thankful for those who volunteer.

Review: Copy and paste the link below for an awesome highlight video of Dryer Road Bike Park. Really cool little park with a ton of quick winding trails. Switchbacks and roots galore. I only gave it 4 stars because my enduro bike is a bit to big for this place. Still highly recommend to those on an XC bike! I also post new videos from different spots around New England every Monday, so be sure to subscribe for more! Link: https://youtu.be/MR3ZFJq51Ec

Review: Fantastic as always. Well maintained trail system; with switchbacks galore. Vast amounts of rain over the summer and the trails have held up well; minimal mud but some deep sand.

Review: This park is absolutely fantastic! The riding her is unlike anything I've experienced before, being from the Buffalo area. Dryer Road's trails are unbelievably smooth and flowwy, yet offer such an awesome amount of tech and precision. I was very impressed, and I'll certainly be coming back!

Review: Odd park, but fun!!
It's a tight network of very short run trails that interconnect. As a few folks have already commented, it appears that the builders just tried to cram as many trails as possible into a limited sized area. Many, many trails with many, MANY switchbacks. (They should rename this place "Switchback Hill")
It reminds me a bit of the Alle Grippis trails in PA. but on a much, much, smaller scale.

Nothing too crazy here, even the expert trails can be handled with judicious use of your brakes. ; )

PROS:
~Fun!
~Fast.
~Good place to get a quick MTB fix or get a change of scenery.
~Hardtails, singlespeeds and 26er's can totally own this place.

CONS:
~A bit monotonous after a while (did I mention the all the freakin' switchbacks?)
~ Trails are (very) short...no real opportunity to stretch your legs and get some rhythm.
~Not really an "Out with Nature" MTB park. You're smack dab in the middle of suburbia and you always know it.
~Some trails are marked well, others, well, are not. (Luckily the place is very small so you can't get lost).

Similar Trail: Maybe Alle Grippis in PA or Fountainhead in VA?

Review: Loads of fun! Always have a great time. And since there are so many trails, you can change it up from time to time. It's loads of fun with friends and there are always trails for you to try out new skills and challenge yourself. They also have pump/jump track and a slalom course. Along with a technical area. These places are great for warmups or just to have fun on. I basically learned how to mountain bike here. And I never get tired of going back. Whether you're a beginner just starting out, an intermediate rider who's eager to learn more skills and challenge yourself, or an expert racer who's looking for something a little different to practice on. It doesn't matter! Dryer Road Park suits every angle of mountain biking!
