Trail Description
About this trail
There are so many possibilities for different rides I suggest printing a map from
our website ( 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.

Q: Bike rentals ? -Guest

A: No. Lippman is more of a state park kind of thing. It's maintained by a volunteer group but you need to bring your own bike

Review: Considering this is the #1 trail I wasn't overly impressed. Viper was great, and the beginner trails were fun,. Paul Bunyan trail was terrible not Maintained at all. If you want instant Lyme disease then that's your trail. I definitely prefer gurney or north Bethlehem.

Review: Trail system is well maintained and well designed for moderate to advanced riders. Love hitting up the brewery by the park entrance after the ride. Those two things make the Lippman Park a great biking spot.

Review: These trails are very well maintained. I think it's the best trail system in the area and perhaps in the tops of the state. Well marked and designed for all levels. Was able to sneak in a weekend New Years ride with the wife and warm weather and trails were perfect. The Renegades MTB are doing an awesome job organizing and maintaining these trails. And yes, the New Paltz Brewery is a must go-to-place after the ride. They are by the entrance of the park. I always stop in with my wife. Had some awesome baked pretzels with the Hint of Heat Hefeweizen was phenomenal. She had the oktoberfest beer. Very friendly brewery owners. The whole area seems of friendly people. Great weekend getaway! Awesome!

Review: Awesome trail system - you can tell that some locals have put in a lot of time to keep it maintained. Textbook flowy single tracks everywhere you look and some fun rocky sections as you ascend too. Will definitely be back!

Review: Very well-maintained trails and a lot of them~ you can tell a lot of time and effort has been spent maintaining them. There's a little of everything packed into a condensed network of trails, from easier and smoother terrain, to large rock piles, skinny bridges and a few up steep up and downhills. Our one issue was that it was such a condensed maze of trails with somewhat confusing markings, that we spent a lot of time looking at the map instead of just riding. We attempted to ride trails 1-18, but got so mixed up, we ended up just trying to make our way to the top by winging it, which worked out okay too. Really have to appreciate how much work has been put into the place though, it's worth the trip to ride there! Oh, and yes, beer lovers need to check out the New Paltz brewery practically next door. Terrific place!

Review: Love this trail system. Great elevation. clean and tight paths. Always love riding this park trail. After the ride we always love going to the New Paltz Brewery just outside the park for a pint of beer. You need to check out their Hefeweizen!

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.

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!
