Mountain Biking Finger Lakes National Forest

**   Add a review
#232 of 283 mountain bike trails in New York
#11624 in the world

The trails are all nice recommend back bone trail this is open to horses and bikes as wells as
hiking. Burnt hill trail from campgrounds is nice even ground fast. The best way is to get a map
at the campgrounds they are free and start exploring the trails are all marked. Some trails are
not open to bikes however I have ridden them all and have come along DEC and forest rangers
and no one has stopped me or asked be not to ride I feel they are happy people are using the
trails. Primitive camping is available the only place you have to pay is in the actual campgrounds.
Very cheap per night. Rest rooms available but no water. And camping any were else on forest is

    Waste of time, unless you are looking to ride "illegally".

    I grew up in the area and it's great for winter activities, but is absolutely behind the times on mountain biking. It's a real shame as trails would bring more $$ to the area than the horses do.

    Not even a distant comparison to Harriet Hollister, where multi use trails were developed FOR biking.

    Bumpy from horse usage on Interlochen, just about unrideable 3 days after heavy rain. Burnt Hill trail barely discernible due to overgrowth, obviously rarely used. I won't be back.

    I parked at the horse camp, the trail was mostly wide enough for a 4x4, it trrned into some single track. You have to watch out for rose bushes and horse poo! Over all a good ride.
