Mountain Biking Gore Mountain Bike Park

**   Add a review
#201 of 283 mountain bike trails in New York
#10439 in the world

The mountain is Gondola accessed. There are 3/4 trails down. All are very technical. A FS bike is needed, although I did it on a hardtail. Trails are more of a cleared area, than a trail. Mostly rocks and roots and stumps of small trees. Not as easy as many other areas, but not nearly as difficult as a true DH mountain like Whiteface. A DH bike would be overkill, as it is never really that steep. Each trail is pretty long, but there is nearly no flow, and no manmade objects.

    I want to give an honest review of the bike park as I was searching around for one and couldn’t find it before I went there today. Disclosure that I ride a lot and hit up a lot of bike parks and went in to riding with a lower standard which was fine, but the park did not meet those lower standards. First, I’d say it is a stretch to call this a bike park. I consider a bike park as loft accessible and well manicured trails. I did not find this here. First, they have lift access but it beyond inefficient. Every time a biker comes one person stops the lift, two other people put a pad around the bars and the other puts a hook on the lift and the biker then lifts the bike on the hooks. It stops the lift for about 45-60 seconds each time. Not ideal, but I guess works? Next the trail system. The trail system is certainly nothing special. The are no well made berms in the whole park from what I saw. The trails look like they went through, cut down some trails and left the trail as is. It is not smooth and has no flow. I also got lost a few times on the trail because In some less wooded spots it looks like they just Went in with a rake and removed some leaves. To the point where Vegetation was growing in the middle of the trail. It seems these trails were built for hikers and then they opened it to bike. People also don’t pay to go to a bike park to share the trail with hikers and then see signs all over that bikes MUST yield to hikers. Very dangerous to mix the two trails. Overall, I would rate it at a 60%. If you are into bike parks are would suggest you skip this one. If you have never done a bike park before this would be fine. I just don’t think Gore should advertise that they have a bike park because this to me at least doesn’t meet the requirements for a park.

    This trail system was disappointing. The trails, although they have been here a while, are barely maintained - they are swept off with a rake it seems, but nothing has been updated. There is no area - other than the soft sand on the connector truck trails - where there is flow. Technical, but more irritating technical. Not the thrill of steepness like Whiteface, but not fun technical like Daniels Road. The trail map on the website is not the same as the trail map given to me the day I was there - and 2 of the three downhill trails were closed (although we ended up on one - Wolfpack- which was between the high intermediate and the low expert of BeeLine and had the worst of both worlds). If they cut some actual trails, or smoothed out some, it would be more fun. My son actually mistakenly thought we were on a hiking only trail (there are a lot of hikers here, and they have the right of way)
