Mountain Biking Moreau Lake State Park

*****   Add a review
#28 of 283 mountain bike trails in New York
#1223 in the world

Many trails starting from the picnic and beach area that can tailor to the intermediate or advanced rider. For intermediate trails, stay to the lake and to Mud Pond North of the main lake. Trails around both bodies of water provide fun riding. Advanced riders my climb the ridge and several trails atop Palmerton Range wind around and back down the other side. The Spier Falls trails on this website are part of the Moreau Lake State Park lands. Many places to enter trail system along the park perimeter, but if you do not have an Empire Pass, please use main entrance and support your State Parks.

    This is a highly technical trail. There are some easier trails, but most end up on intermediate/expert trails. Most riders seem to go in by the Spier Falls area- with long hill climbs and tough trails. I went in off Potter Rd and Spier Falls Rd. Starts on an easy pole line, then to a fun single track. Then it gets more technical. Ups and downs. Rocks. Steep fast rocky downhills. Yes, some hike a bike, some dabbing. A lot of fun, but not for beginners. Not as steep as the western part, but packs a lot of fun into a few miles

    Most people start on Spier Falls Rd. For a shorter climb park at the saddle and take the single track you see coming into the parking area. Great climbs, technical sections, fast and flowy sections... A little bit of everything with great sunsets, views of Adks, Hudson River and Vt.

    Great Network of trails, and awesome views of the lake and Mud Pond. Atop the ridge for advanced riders has some excellent overlook views of the Hudson River on the west side, and the Green Mountains on the East side towards Vermont. You can get a trail Map from the park main office for $2 or $3.
