Trail Description
About this trail
Very narrow and tight turns. Intermediate to advance singletrack. Some sandy fire roads. Several diamonds with some awesome moguls. You better have good slow speed handling skills. The trail is new and is somewhat soft. Needs to be packed down. There are descent signs throughout. Good short workout.

Update: Stay off closed section (East side) which was routed on private property. Closed section is clearly marked and blocked.

Review: This place is about as fun as it gets for Long Island riding. At 12 miles, it's quite extensive for the area where it is located. There's a lot of flowy, sometimes twisty, trail packed into this spot. CLIMB has done an excellent job building, maintaining and expanding these trails. However, they are a bit liberal with the black diamond designations throughout Long Island. The black diamond sections here, like most other LI trail networks, are appropriate for most intermediate riders, with basically no technical features to speak of. However, the flow of this place, and the speed you can carry, makes it a real gem. The intersections can be a bit confusing your first few times here, as all of the "black diamond" loops come off of the main trail and return behind where you left the main trail, meaning you re-ride a small section of the main trail. What's good about this is that it is easy to repeat a loop if you want. Over the years the sandy spots in low lying areas have gotten a bit more extensive. This is a must-ride when on LI.

Review: Rode on hard packed snow today. Best riding ive ever done. The snow was better than dry conditions-somehow there was better traction. Fyi i ride 27.5 standard tires. Great day! I rode all 11 miles with no problems

Review: Nice flowy trails. First time ive rode trails like this-lots of speed and fun without too many bumps. Left wondering if my rigid frame can handle the terrain?

Review: Fun, fun and more fun. Flowy and very well maintained. Can be narrow in spots so watch your handlebars.

Review: Very good flow and a great workout with virtually zero tech. Well maintained, but there are many trees that still need to be cut down in some areas. They are just crying out to eat a collar bone.

Review: Very flowy, well built trails. Definitely can get a long distance workout in. No real man-made obstacles (log piles, jumps, drops, etc). One small pump area that was fun.

Review: Very fun trail from beginning to end. Nice wide straight aways to wheelie, and there's also a few pretty nice jumps to hit if you have a full suspension bike. Nothing too technical but pretty tight at some points. The trail is maintained incredibly, i love all the berms in there especially in "no trespassing." Not one complaint about Glacier Ridge. Similiar to East Setauket but way less of a workout.

Review: Very well built. Super flowy. Can keep your speed up most hills. And down hills you can most of the time keep your speed with good burms. Very well packed. Rode in the semi wet winter conditions and it was still wonderfull and couldnt ask for better traction. I definitely had fun.

Review: I enjoyed myself. They are really nice cut trails, smooth and flowy, packed nicely. Not very technical compared to what im use to in West Virginia. You can really keep your speed with the burms. Its a fun intermediate ride. I give it 5 stars solely on the location. They coudnt have built the trails any better for their location.
