There are so many possibilities for different rides I suggest printing a map from our website (www.renegadesmtb.com) and choose your own route. In general if you start with trail #1 and work your way through #17 you will hit a good portion of the system. The trail system has lots of features-raised boardwalks, skinnies, bridges, berms and a fair amount of climbing. Easier trails are lower on the mountain and get more difficult as you go up.
Review: Very pretty area in the midst of "the Gunks." Nothing super technical, but flowy and fun. Climbs are not going to wind you too much. Upper trails had some trees down that had not been cut, or I may have been slightly off the grid riding deeper in the park, Vic Rock Garden or beyond. All good and part of a new discovery. Nicely done Renegades.
Similar Trail: Stewart State Park less the "knarliness" of trails; Three Sisters or Escarpment
Review: Awesome trail system with lots of flow on the lower and more rocks and roots up higher. Totally enjoyed the variety, especially Arizona and Lyons Gait. Spent almost 3 hours exploring; kuddos to the trail maintenance folks; you can tell they really care about the system. Bravo boys!
Similar Trail: Pine Hill Park, Gurney Lane, Green Mt. Trails
Review: This is a bout a half hour from me and for being the closest thing to real single track it's a huge must if you are passing through! Free parking free riding trails are marked out well and are a lot of fun! Climb to the top and take Lyons den down it's a must!
Review: Just hit this trail yesterday and had a blast! You could easily spend the entire day there and probably still not ride every trail. The park is clean, parking is abundant and the trails and bridges are maintained meticulously.
Review: I enjoyed Chupacabra. Was short on time so didnt cover a lot of ground. Burms were rock hard and some gravel spots are shaky. I will have to return but can't see it being a top 5 destination in NY.
Review: Excellent trail system, but somewhat misleading. I'm a double-black diamond level rider (I found Viper fun, but not technically difficult), but the "easy", "green" trails are only easy compared to what else is in the park. Newbie riders, beware - this is not a beginner-level park.
Review: Fun trail. Higher elevation is rocky and rooty, technical, would have liked a full suspension. Lower elevation has more flow and was fine with my hard tail. Navigation can be confusing since the trails are tightly bunched.
Review: First time. Picked a bad day to go (rain as soon as I started riding). Early March means trenches from water run off throughout the winter and a lot of leaves. But I see the potential. Had fun on crazy eights. I'll be back for sure, tho. And I'll update my rating accordingly.
