Mountain Biking Floodwood Otter Pond loops

*****   Add a review
#114 of 298 mountain bike trails in New York
#4,486 in the world

Singletrack. This is a trail through the woods and by ponds and over streams. Trail is good, Not typical for well used MTB trails. As much a hiking trail, but mostll flat, and some wet spots and rocks and roots, but a pretty nice trail. You can start off Floodwood Rd or from inside Fish Creek Campground (where you would find the Otter Hollow trailhead at site 104 (Floodwood is at site 23) Each loop is about 9 miles long.Scenery is second to none. Made for XC skiing in winter

    The start of the trail doesn't seem to be too bad but as you get farther into the trail, it becomes over grown. There are trees down and uncrossable swampy sections making it difficult to actually ride, I do not recommend. It's disappointing because it so close to the rental houses.

    A backcountry trail. Not really a system. Its a nice hiking trail, but also challenging for a biker. Not any real flow, but a good 2 hour loop. Not for an inexperienced rider, or someone not comfortable with being so remote.
