Mountain Biking Split Rock And Surrounding Area

****   Add a review
#70 of 296 mountain bike trails in New York
#2,979 in the world

The trail is single and double track which connects to quite a few areas of the city. It offers a little of everything dirt, grassy areas, and some solid and broken up stone. Not supper technical but if your willing to cross a few roads it connects several different trails and can be reached from the city of Syracuse. I will continue to add to this map and GPS as I have the opportunity, and as I said you will see that it connects several populated areas which allows for numerous access areas.

    There are many different trails with steep technical sections, wooden features, and fast sections. Something for everyone. The best place to ride in Syracuse area for sure. Apparently they recently put up posted signs around the quarry so I'm not sure if it's exactly legal to ride there, but I did today no problem. I saw plenty of tracks so I know people are still riding it.

    I have to recant my previous review of this place. About 90% of this area would be fantastic for biking. Even for some im sure could do the whold place. Great... going back next weekend

    Not to sure if this would really be suitable for a bike but maybe. Either way great place to hike

    Not very extensive trail and infested with dogs on the loose.

    Not the cleanest trail, but had some interesting features. Bring a lock and chain and explore the rock crusher while you're there. Small cave like structure with graffiti all through out.

    I went April 6th 2014. Most of the snow was gone but there was a few tricky snowy spots and I had to dismount a couple times to continue.

    I parked roadside off of Wright Rd. There are a few houses and people out. They didnt seem to mind.

    I'm new to trail riding so not much of a frame of reference but I got to say I was impressed with this little trail close to home. While not maintained well, lots of up n down on trails nestled mostly into the woods. I will return!

    The section I ended up on was mainly around a quarry easy flat trails. Worth a look if you are not looking for hills

    Mainly singletrack, not real technical but a nice ride anyway.
