t is a great place to ride when it has not rained for a while. After rain, the trails are very muddy and some are almost impossible to ride. A map of the trails can be found at http://www.buffnet.net/~jsundqui/hc.gif

    There are all skill levels here... if ya can find them. The trails here are horribly marked and the map is out of date, your going to get lost.

    1st time here. From Rochester, NY. Mostly enjoyed the trails and will try again as there are many different routes to take and trails I didn't get to tackle but did find many areas very wet . some of the terrain is practically impossible to climb. There are some nicely built bridges and the scenery is fantastic. The creek itself is very nice. I encountered very few downhill sections and the ones I did find were rough and not very long. Was expecting more long downhill sections especially when driving to the park, there were such hilly roads around the park.

    Just biked this all today, and really enjoyed it: I agree with all of your review. I did get muddy, so expect to get you & your gear dirty! I'm visiting from Minnesota & this was a great introduction in to Western NY: other bikers on the trails and in the parking lot were helpful and considerate (making sure I knew where I was going, prepared, and "ok") hikers were also considerate in getting off the trail to allow me to pass, and it always helped to be polite and nice to the other trail users: I only encountered three hikers closer to the parking and 1 mtn biker on the trails and one in the main parking lot (by the restrooms). I'd encourage all intermediate riders to explore these trails! Get ready for a fun ride!

    Great place for all skill levels to ride. Technical challenges and lots of fun smooth stuff too. My home trails and favorite place to ride. Takes about 3 days to dry out after a good rain, but sets up nicely.

    Great Riding, tight single track, roots galore but not too rocky, challenging at times and lots of small climbs that will wear you out. Has been turned into an official county park, with new trails maintained by the local mtn bike association, WNYMBA.

    Don't know who Joe Graham is, but it's a free country and you can say whatever you want. I'd say check out:

    http://www.wnymba.org/trails.php?trail=1
    http://www.wnymba.org/static/report/photofusion/index.html
    or any of the stuff at http://www.wnymba.org/portal.php?h=erie
    of any of the newsletters from the late 2001 - early 2003 period (http://www.wnymba.org/portal.php?h=newsletter)

    Maybe that would fall under "no matter what they say" but you be the judge. Bottom line is some environmental organizations pushed for a master planning process with them hoping it would ban bikes. We worked our butts off on this with the result that all trails except 1.5 miles would be open to bikes. Like I said, make your own decision.

    After it dries out, Hunters is without a doubt the best place to ride in Erie Co. Just stay off the trails in the spring!

    He's right on one thing, though. We don't do much with racing, sponsoring just one race a year (but that's one more race per year than most other folks). We'd rather spend our time keeping trails open to bikes.

    I rode hear on 9/26. Overall very nice park with a little something for everyone. AVOID THE MARSHLANDS that are noted on the trail map in the parking lot. My favorite trail was just north of the parking lot with a trail head off of the road. It was nice and technical with nobody else riding it.
