Mountain Biking Hammond Hill

****   Add a review
#66 of 297 mountain bike trails in New York
#2,731 in the world

Nice network of multi-use trails. They are DEC maintained and tend to drain
pretty well. I would say that they aren't very technical, but rather nice,
twisty, rolly single and doubletrack. The best parking spot is near the
beginning of Y1, but Y4, Y5, R1 and R2 are my favorites. Be prepared to do
some pedaling though, there are some big hills.

I'll upload my GPS data on this shortly.

    Trails are currently a mudfest and there was a trail race when I went. Still had a great time riding the main road through the land! Flowers, birds, and small trickling streams; Spring is at Hammond Hill

    I'm 21 and getting back in to mtn biking for the first time since I was 11 (I've been on a road bike plenty in the mean time). I rode hammond hill for a couple hours today and it was awesome. The trails are pretty extensive, which is exciting, but it is also not difficult to get lost.

    Very basic trail. This was my first ever ride back in 2009. No catwalks or skinnies, and very few rocks/roots. Flowy and fun single and double track.
    Nothing too special. Great for beginners, although there are some tough climbs.

    Great network of trails could benefit from some additional maintenance but all in all a great day of riding falls under the Shadow of Shindagin so it's not as popular for MTB but there are quite a few hikers and massive piles of horse poo! however the scenery is great and there is some decent climbs roots rocks and such not too challenging though fairly easy ride with a mix of single and double track
