Mountain Biking Graham Hills

****   Add a review
#21 of 283 mountain bike trails in New York
#1046 in the world

This trail is sweet! The trail is a network of singletrack loops, with dropoffs, jumps, DH sections, and hard climbs and a retired motocross track in the back. I would suggest this trail for intermediate too advance riders.

    As a beginner to the sport, this trail system offers a bit of everything from technical sections to jumps to long flowy trails, I would recomend this trail system to everyone of all skill levels.

    This is a great little park that has flowy trails mixed in with some technical rock gardens. If you keep your eyes peeled, you may find a drop or two as well. New trail, Tumbleweed, is awesome in both directions.

    Been riding Graham 20 years and I believe the best XC around. A lot of hills can be technical but doable. Great cardio so this is the place if you have 1 day to ride, I ride a Santa Cruz tallboy lt with the suspension stiff. Go to www.wmba.org for map

    Haven't been here in a while and during that time a new trail was build. The new trail starts all the way at the top and runs between the the white trail and the motocross trail. It has a great flow to it with switchbacks, various drops and rocks to ride. It's a nice long trail that will keep you entertained. It eventually connects to the white/blue connector trail so it makes it easier to connect back to the yellow trail and switch back up the hill for one more ride down. In general all the other trails are in great shape and hardpacked. Place is well maintained and frequently ridden.

    The snow made it really hard on the climbs, especially with thin wheels. Fat Bikes would have a much better time. Overall great riding though

    First ride here today. Did most of the trails with the exception of red and orange which I understand are "expert" level. Must say, I'm extremely impressed by this place. It isn't a huge network but it has a nearly perfect combination of hard climbing, fast and flowing descents and flats, and technical rock and root sections, some of which are quite serious. Generally not too tight so you can hold some speed through the turns. There are play areas off the main trails if you keep your eyes open so there are plenty of stunt opportunities if that's your thing. Otherwise GH strikes me as a true cross country park with technical features ranging from easy to advanced. I think any level of rider with the exception of absolute first timers will find these trails fun and challenging, but intermediate riders will probably get the most out of them.

    I rode it with a hardtail 1x10, 33 tooth up front and 11-36. I found myself under geared and dismounting at the steepest portions of several climbs... But if you're stronger than me they're doable at that ratio. In fact, a strong single speed rider would probably love this place. I rode it with 100mm fork up front which I thought was perfect. This said the trails are so varied that anything from full sus trail bikes to fully rigid SS would be fun and doable depending on your skills and style. Only saw maybe four or five other people out there, only one other biker.

    I used to ride at Graham Hills 2-3 times per week, 10 years ago. It was always a great, well maintained, fun place to ride. I rode their recently and was amazed at the change. Broken glass on lower trails, garbage strewn throughout, former singletrack now almost wide enough to be considered doubletrack, and the worse...dog poop in the middle of the trails. What 10 years would have been 4-5 stars is now 3 tops.

    Excellently maintained and pretty diverse trail network. There is something for everyone here. Tricky downhills, high grade climbs. Short punchy rollers and several flow sections. Not many dug out jumps but enough that you can get airborne and have a little fun. I ride it with a hardtail, 140 mm revelation up front and continental mountain king front, xking rear ( black chilli). More than enough bike to get through a minority of the trails. There are definitely sections that will challenge even good riders. I would suggest riding the blue trail to get used to the type of terrain.

    Awesome gem of a trail. Easy to get to and plenty of parking at the trail head. I moved away about 2 years ago and had a chance to jump on a friends bike and ride of the Thankgiving holiday for a quick ride. Trails were just as fun as I remember. A

    Technical climbs and downhills, fast rolling singletrack, some drops and jumps dispersed throughout the park. Lots of climbing so bring you legs. Follow the blue trail up the hill from there take any trail. Green trail has some nice technical riding, lots of rock gardens and couple of nice drops. Pink trail is probable the easiest and fast flowing with some logs and small rock gardens.

    This trail is awesome. Something for everyone. On the more advanced side but perfect for intermediate of above. Couple rock gardens and some interesting climbs. Nice downhills!

    These "single track" trails are basically walking trails designated for mountain bike riding. There is no diverse terrain and the narrowness of the paths give you limited options for approaches and direction to roll. And, if you have a need for speed, you're not going to find it here. That said, for lower Westchester it is a pretty good little park ... it's not Vermont but it is not 4 hour drive, either! But be careful -- the dog owners don't pick up their dogs' crap from the trail so watch the tires!!

    THis is a great compact trail that is actually easy to get to from New York City (train to short ride or subway to county trailway). Built around and over a hill that will challenge even the strongest riders on the way up. The suffering is worth it since you then get to bomb down a variety of single track trails. Local MTB clubs have built some great jumps (look for the five in a row off a steep hill and jump over a rock wall in the SE corner!) Amazing place close to the largest city in the country. A real gem.

    Sweet! Lotsa of tight and fast singletrack, well marked, and flows like water. Some tech sections but bailout routes are always present (nice change from many parts of Sprain). Highly recommend this trail. We rode pink and blue loops. Blue def rocked with a sweet superlong DH to fly down. I'm from Boston and I'm already planning another one nighter to NY just to ride this trail* Review edited 8/10/2010

    I get the home court advantage at Graham Hills. This trail network is contained in a relatively small park making unfortunate walk-outs less painful. Regular traffic makes surface fast rolling and smooth. Fun little hits and drops along the way are ideal for BMX style riders, and tough climbs let cross country experts represent. Great for evening races with the sun.* Review edited 8/27/2007
