Mountain Biking Richmond Avenue and Forest Hill road

****   Add a review
#110 of 298 mountain bike trails in New York
#4,232 in the world

First mile or so is a mix of crushed gravel and tar. After that lots of roots, ruts, rocks and wood bridges. This trail can get very sloppy after rain. Lots of bikes on the trails, but like all trails in the New York City Area, bikes may or may not be allowed.

    Nice easy trail. Few small to medium obstacles. Not bad for a nice workout.

    Reviewing Gateway Beach:

    The only reason to ride here is when the local trails are iced over or the snow is too deep. Don't even think of riding this in the summer. When the temperature remains below 20f for a few days, the moisture on the sand hardens up and makes riding easy. Nice ocean views.
