Trail Description
About this trail
Ithaca was selected as a top 5 place to live for mountain biking by Bike magazine in 2002. This is probably the best of the nearby state lands. Many miles of technical singletrack with a multitude of fellow riders on any nice day. Numerous man-made obstacles especially in Area 51. Trails are maintained by a local bike club working with DEC. Located in the Finger Lakes region of NYS plenty of wineries and microbrews to sample and Ithaca has a great scene in which to enjoy the night as well as great places to shop. Shindagin is probably the premiere place to bike in central NY.

Review: Trails are well marked and well maintained with a few downed trees that weren't ridable (in late fall). Lots of roots, some nice rock sections, and constant up and downs.

Review: Wow, this is what I was searching for. The trail volunteers have put in a lot of work, making for a very fun ride. Nice flowing downhills that are bermed and have small jumps. Trail features and structures were placed around every 1/4 mile. You can loop the trails and make a nice 15 mile ride.

Review: Copy and paste the link below for an awesome highlight video from Shindagin Hollow Trails. This is one of my must ride spots whenever I am in Upstate NY and the locals agree! Great trails all around varying from fast downhill rips to long windy leg burners. Some great flow and a ton of roots to bounce around on. There are also some great man man bridges and log rides. I post new videos from different spots around New England every Monday, so be sure to subscribe for more! Link: https://youtu.be/Z69NnE0eKQ8

Review: I drove around the roads for almost a half hour, couldn't find any trailhead besides that for the white trail which was short and sloppy.

Review: Great place for the cycle with your mtb! I cycled with my mtb for 3:30 hr through the blue (1,4,6) and red(3,5,6) trails and it was amazing, but you should pay attention to the marks because in some places it is difficult to keep track. I'll try to come back each week to enjoy, in this area there aren't many places to enjoy with your mtb. You can view my activity in: https://www.strava.com/athletes/1182710

Review: Since you "road" the trails, I can't take you seriously. Did anyone use a mountain bike that wants to comment?

Review: Some of the best elevation in a 10 mile loop in the lower peninsula and not a far drive for Metro Detroiters

Review: Awesome, varied trail system with lots of worthwhile mileage. Blue trails are more technical and get sloppy after a rain, red and yellow trails are more flow and drain better. Top notch trail work by Cycle CNY; check their facebook for an up to date map. Most trails are marked, but the connections between them can be hard to spot. Almost all trails can (and should) be ridden in both directions.
