Mountain Biking Shindagin Hollow

*****   Add a review
#3 of 298 mountain bike trails in New York
#341 in the world

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. Check out the Cycle-CNY for trail updates and maps. Fat biking is allowed in the winter time.
