Mountain Biking Glacier 8 (Hidden Pond Park)

****   Add a review
#62 of 298 mountain bike trails in New York
#2,638 in the world

This is basically single track with some decent climbs and not too technical. A map can conditions can be found on climbonline.org. A link to a hand drawn map can be found at: http://www.climbonline.org/yabbfiles25/Attachments/securedownload-3_006.jpeg. Some of the trails here are shared use so look out for hikers and horses. Horses especially toward the Northern part of the trail. Good for beginner to intermediate. Small area so no worries of being lost in the woods. This trail can be a little tricky to navigate so it's best to get the map or go with someone who's been there. Thanks to CLIMB for making this a real trail and all the efforts to get this is shape to be a legit trail. Still a little soft as it is new. It will pack down as soon as more people ride this trail.

    I'm fairly new to trailriding and have an entry level bike so take this review for what it is but this is a trail close to my house and is perfect for me right now. The yellow trail has a lot of roots and is very straightforward but the blue, orange and pink trails have some really nice features, climbs etc that are challenging enough for me to build my skills on. There are a few jumps and some nice views from the top of the hill. Maybe not worth a long car ride for most but I feel very lucky to have such a great trail so close to my house. I usually do three full loops per session. I am really starting to know the trail and improve my speed, control and endurance. Thanks to C.L.I.M.B. for building and maintaining this!

    High climbs are challenging, the trails are well marked, the down hill helps you prepare for the up hill.

    This trail has been redone and is in great shape. Some soft spots as it is new but in great shape. Was a little difficult to navigate but if you pay attention to the trail colors and follow the map, you'll be fine. No major climbing but couple of hills might be tough for a beginner. Not a real big area so no real chance of being lost in the woods.
