Mountain Biking Taconic-hereford

****   Add a review
#26 of 297 mountain bike trails in New York
#1,515 in the world

The terrain consists mostly of rolling hills with moderately steep slopes interspersed throughout. Fire roads & snowmobile trails circle and loop through dense hardwood forest over hilly terrain. Branching off these fire roads are more challenging single-track spur trails that provide a variety of trail experiences from fast and smooth to technical, with roots, grass and loose rocks. No motor vehicles are allowed.
