    A very nice combination of flow and technical trails. The climbs are long, but mostly slow switchbacks. The drops are fast, flowing and lots of rollovers / jumps. Plenty of technical stretches with rock gardens and roots. This was my first time there and I had a blast.

    Great trail system, all trails well marked and maintained trail maps located at major trail junctions. All trails flow great both ways to make it an endless day of endless possibilities of loops.

    Rode here last weekend and had a great time. This is the first time riding here and found the trails to be well maintained and marked clearly. The information provided related to each trail is accurate to the skill required to ride.

    Was on vacation and got to ride on two days. Day one was very hot/dry, the trails were fast and a bit buggy. It rained overnight so it was a little cooler and the trails a little more manageable. Surf out and Coast back is a great warm up. Ton's of flow and some great technical trails. Race Course is just great for challenging your best. I will be back.

    I'm from out of town. Had a blast here today. The trails are in great shape, and extremely well marked. Thank you to everyone who obviously works so hard to maintain and grow this great network!

    Wow, What a sweet ride! Dropped in here Memorial Day weekend and really enjoyed this secret stash. Nice easy climbs and flowy fast descents. Met some cool riders and information was shared. Had time to go back up top and do it again for 1.5 hrs ride time.
    Dont miss E-20,surf,and race course.
    Killer trails hidden in Lake George!

    Gurney Lane makes for a remarkable day on the mountain bike. Their is a little bit for everyone here from rocks and roots to smooth rollers,jumps, and berms. The trail markings/maps on this system are the best I've seen in NY and getting lost is nearly impossible. The system consists of some earlier old school single track which is numerically organized by the trails build date. A lot of these trails are rocky/rooty and a little technical in spots. In my opinion though the best highlights of this system are the fast and flowy excavator cut trails put in over the last couple years. They are denoted by the higher numbers on the map and include Race course, Ridge runner, Rogue Ext, Tango, and E-20. These sections were all very well thought out and perfectly rounded out all the available park space at Gurney. I only wish the park had more room to continue to build more amazing trails.

    Gurney is a small system of great trails, very well marked that offer the Beginner and Intermediate riders plenty of fun. Rock Buster has a lot of great optional trail features to improve you skills on. The new trails E-20 and Tango have small jumps. The trails tend to be short but easy to link together. Most of the riding is climb up, ride down. Salsa is a must hit trail along with Rock Buster, E-20 and Tango. The trails are well maintained by a small number of volunteers and the town.
    Check out video of E-20 and Tango for a sense of the trails.

    This place is just fun. I just spent two days at Gurney Lane and highly recommend it. The only downside is, the trails are too short. But they're easy to connect and it really doesn't take away from the fun.

    Expect nice, flowy, well-built trials with some technical sections, moderate climbs, and a ton of excellent, fast sections. You'll find some well-built berms and a few solid jumps (as well as a lot of smaller, really fun jumps). Race Course is one of my favorites in terms of straight fun without too many frightening bits. E-20 and Tango are likely the most challenging runs--but they are easily the most fun. E-20 is slightly longer, with fast, steep berms and a nice table top and tree-ride feature. Tango is fast with a couple of bigger jumps that just add to the flow.

    Great trails. Great people. Worth the trip.

    My favorite trail system anywhere. I just got back there after a 3 month hiatus, and there are 3 new trails - E20, Tango and Rally- bringing the number of trails to EIGHTEEN! They keep adding new trails, and these new 3 are like nothing else there. E20 and Tango are quick one way only trails while Rally is almost the opposite of RaceCourse, which it comes off. A couple years ago, when they had 1/2 the trails, I thought they would be stuck at too small. They have plenty of trails now, and are bonafide top tier.

    Fun little trail system, well maintained and marked, 1.5 miles from Lake George RV Park. Water fountain by the pool area a plus.

    For summer of 2017 Gurney Lane has added 3 new trails, two of which are one-way, flowy, bermed, short but sweet droppers. This brings the total trail system length to about 12 miles. You can now get a good 1:45 minute ride in by linking the trails. The annual early August Churny Gurney race now includes a trail running race and has become a two day event. Best place to mountain bike if you're visiting Lake George too, only a couple of miles south of the lake, right off Exit 20 of the Northway.

    Lots of expansion in 2016! Constantly maintained and improved. Half twisty-tree-dodgy, half machine-bench-cut-flowy. All-over easier than North Creek Ski Bowl, but it's nice to fly sometimes.
