    What an amazing place. Only my 5th time here and im in love with meadowlark. Although i have little to compare meadowlark to(ive only been to edgewood and bethpage in my 3 months mountain biking) i cant imagine a better place to ride. Just when u think your lost, going the wrong way or have repeated a run by accident meadowlark reminds you that you did NOT by introducing a new obstacle. Its also the perfect workout..,consistently 45 minutes for me to complete without stopping.

    First time on the trail and I wasn't disappointed. Tight and compact but extremely well maintained. Lots of log jumps and tight turns. Fun, fun, fun!!!

    This is a great secret little spot it's short. Just under 5 miles but CLIMB maintains it wonderfully. It borders on the VA hospital in northport it's free n never had a parking issue. Very technical. Trails are narrow and " yes Heffe I would say there are a plethora of obsticals" but u can always opt out and circumvent the obsticals ( log piles & soup bowls) if ur not ready for them. This is not a trail for a helmet less couple going on a joy ride. If u clip a tree with ur handle bars ur going downtown. And the new addition " concrete jungle trail" is technical to say the least. There's a bit of poison ivy in the green months mostly down at calf level. But take care n u won't get it. Unless ur like my pal Ari who gets PI if he looks at it from across the room. This is a great trail if u want lots of turns. Similar to ur lower intestine. Not too much hill though. But if u ride it hard ull be drenched with sweat and done before ur wife wakes up to beat u with a rolling pin. Time aprox 45 mins. Unless u want to do two loops like my pals Carl n Rob. Their wives don't know "rolling pin kwon do".

    One of the best trails on Long Island. There are log rollovers, lots of climbs and a newer section with some old broken concrete action. Really fun!

    Super fun trail on LI- technical (roots,rocks,short uphills,twisties) and just a blast. Wish it was longer! CLIMB did an amazing job on this trail and the upkeep is consistent- new features being added all the time. Highly recommend.

    I've been mountain biking 3 days a week for a while now and have never been to Meadowlark before.
    This was an awesome more advanced to intermediate trail with lost of logs to go over and some nice root climbs.
    Lots of tight turns and trees that are close together so watch you handlebars!
    Path is about five or so miles around
    Great trail to improve your skills

    Great trail super technical! Many tight spots and narrow openings between trees. Many great sections to this trail. I am a beginner and had difficulty with some of the sections so I decided to try a few spots a couple times like the rock hill section. Overall great ride and look forward to coming back.

    As a beginner, I found sections of this trail to be too challenging in terms of obstacles (e.g., logs, berms, ramps, etc.). But certainly very interesting network with very narrow and twisty trails.

    Great trail! Directions are wrong - parking is off Middleville Rd.

    Super tight technical turns, good climbs, great trail. Watch out for the end there is a bit of a drop and if you aren't careful you may get intimate with a tree.

    Great value for a trail that's compacted into only 5 miles. The trail isn't beginner oriented as it's loaded with features to ride over and it's tight in many sections. The climbing isn't too bad. There's two or three decent climbs. It flows well in many spots and there's some nice big log rides. This is definitely the most technical CLIMB trail on Long Island with the exception of Cunningham Park in Queens.

    This is a trail that you will want to do twice if you are there and in shape. There are rumors that 7 more miles of land is ready to go to start building trail but it hasn't been started yet. If this happens I will go out and say this will be an amazing trail if they stick with the technical feature aspect of it.

    There's some unmarked trails across the street that have potential to become biking trails as well with good elevation.

    Fun and a good workout Tight and twisty as reported by others. Getting a little overgrown in spots but still easy to follow trail with good markings.
