has a pretty good system of trails some end up outside of the park on atv trails but you could spend
a few hours there in the area. has some chalenging parts, ravenes and stream crossings. mostly
singletrack maintained well. watch out for some fun mud.

    Fun trail. Not good signage, seemingly a lot of dead end trails. But, if you get out going west, and the trail seems as if you are out of the regular trails, keep going this is the best loop in the park. Mostly Beginner, lots of "city" hikers around

    Great trail but, I couldn't find the entrance and it could have used a bit of maintenance. PS This was also my first ever trail. It was pretty fun

    Really enjoyed riding these trails. Has a lot of different terrain. There's roots galore, some Rock gardens, stream crossings, North shore made from pallets that ride well, skinnies over small streams, nice flow sections, punchy climbs, nice short downhills, ridable boulders and slabs, off camber sections. Beautiful scenery. Not a lot of real advanced tech. Might be my go to Winter riding as the terrain isn't too difficult. Had a lot more fun here than I thought I would, I will ride here again.

    Lots and lots of roots. They sometimes can keep you from picking up a lot of speed, but they're something new to overcome. Not too many downhill parts, but the stream setting on the north side is really beautiful. I went a day after there was some rain, and there was quite a bit of mud, but that didn't slow me down. There was also a bike wash station and I was really glad about it.There are wooden features that are really fun. It might be useful to bring extra socks because the stream crossings are pretty rad. I added a photo up there of me riding a steep stream crossing near the edge of the property. As you can tell by my expression, the day was really fun, and I totally recommend going here.

    Great System of trails for any trail mountain bike. Definitely suggest some kind of suspension because there is a lot roots out of the ground. Perfect for a beginner/intermediate rider. It takes about 5 minutes to get the main downhill trails. It is basically 4-5 single tracks of downhill. A few creek crossings but nothing too intense. Definitely could spend many hours back there. It was worth my trip.

    Alright trail system, not really marked too well. Leaf covered and some areas icy with some snow. Also mud in spots, buys it's early spring what else to expect. Def going to go again, but when it's dry.

    Great trail system off the primary paved trail around the public park. Mostly cross country ski trails and some ATV trails. Was a bit diffcult to follow the XC trails in Early November when I rode as the trails were leaf covered. Hadnt rained for a few days before my visit yet there were still some muddy spots. Lots of roots.

    Trails for beginners as well as pros. Lots of ups and downs, mud, roots and fun. Cool rock garden, ravines and did I say mud! If you live in CNY this is a must ride.

    A great ride if you're in the area. The trails are listed as cross-country ski trails, but intersect with ATV trails that are decent riding for the mountain bike. Many ups and downs, some areas of fun mud, and if you want to explore the country side, the trails will actually take you into Clinton farm land.
