This area has some great double track groomed for cross country skiing. Good for beginners or just some hard cross country style training. It also offers some decent single track in different branches. However most of these are out and back trails, not really capable of making a loop. There are some great wooded trails that are wide, providing a good place for beginners. There are several climbs that can be avoided if you want but offer some good high heart rate training. Great Place for interval work without having to get to technical. The scenery is great and the lakes are beautiful. The park offers swimming, fishing, camping with a great backdrop.
This area also offers the Erie Canal Path which runs about 650 miles of paths and trails.

From Rt. 481 or 690 in Dewitt NY head east on Bridge St. which turns into 290. As you approach the end of 290 take a left on Minoa. If you reach Manlius Ctr rd. which is also 257, make a u-turn and go back about 100ft. Immediately after turning on to Minoa there is an Erie Canal Path parking lot on the right. This is a great place to start. You will ride out of the parking lot and up the 100 ft and left on Manlius Ctr. the trail starts about a quarter mile down on the right side of the road. There is a dirt parking area here also if you want to risk it. You can't really miss the entrance to the trail.
