Mountain Biking Tryon

****   Add a review
#208 of 283 mountain bike trails in New York

There are several loops back in this park, just look for them. The trails are pretty well kept up, log bridges, jumps, and obstacles have all been included. From parts of this trail (norh section) you can see a good view of the bay. Definately some good twisty technical singletrack worth checking out. You can ride for 2 miles or make it a 14 mile ride depending on the loops you take.

Getting there
From 490 West, exit at Winton Rd., head north (towards Empire Blvd.) on Winton Rd. for about 2-3 miles, Tryon Rd will be on your right hand side. Go to the end of Tryon Rd. and park, there will be a gate, this is one of the trail entrances. From 590 North, exit Browncroft Blvd., take a left at the light, go straight to Winton Rd., take a right on Winton (North) and drive for about half a mile, Tryon Rd will be on your right hand side. Go to the end of Tryon Rd. and park, there will be a gate, this is one of the trail entrances. P.S. There is also a trail entrance behind the apartment complex across the steet from when you exit 590 North on Browncroft. It is all the way in the back, closest to the expressway.

    Very technical park. It is a joy to ride once you have some skills built up. It isn't well marked yet but trail maintenance crews are doing a great job marking them and making sure upkeep is good for the park.

    This is the first place that I ever mountain biked about 15 years ago. I was back in Rochester, NY recently with my bike and wanted to give this one another shot.

    One of the main differences between when I used to ride here now, and when I did 15 years ago, is that this is now an official city park. You would think that this would be a good thing, but I actually think that it has negatively impacted these trails.

    Previously when I used to ride here there was just one marked way to go around the loop, with a few minor offshoots. With the additional amount of riders that now ride here a number of "trails to nowhere" have been created, mainly for the purpose of creating almost unrideable downhills. There is no markings on any of these trails, so you never know if you are getting into something that would take a major downhiller bike with 200mm of travel to descend.

    It is unfortunate because this was a great hidden gem in the past but it is way over-ridden now with little to know trail work being done on it. Drainage is not being addressed, and the trail is obviously being ridden shortly after rains because it is in rough shape.

    Since there are so few options in Rochester this is still a good trail to ride, but it is unfortunate that it isn't more well maintained based on the obvious increase in riders.

    Track was wet so it was very difficult for me. Lots of roots , rocks but lots of fun. Trails are in good shape. Many loop options. Highly recommend. But for advanced riders

    really nice place to ride in rochester there are some really sick built downhill sections that you have to really look hard for/southeast corner of the park most of the park is a nice relaxed ride but if you can find them there are some reall diffacult sections that most wouldnt even attempt

    I liked the area the trails were in, I just wish they were switchbacks instead of straight up and straight down! It would make the ride much more enjoyable! Sweet bridges where you would least expect them. I really liked the trails up there. Good place to work on my tight turnings and climbing.

    Rode Trail 6/13/08 and 6/20/08. Good length for a 1 or 2 hour ride. Stunts are there but BADLY in need of repair. Mostly well kept otherwise. Good downhill sections but there are definitely some significant uphills in order to ride them. I would say you could get along fine if you are a beginner but there is also some advanced stuff so be careful.

    Rode trail on 8/04/2007. This trail is definitely for the experienced to advanced rider. The jumps are still there. Steep drop-offs to your left and right during some portions of the trail. You go from very fast to a steep incline. Requires skill: must know when to break to control speed and when to let go to go fast to get up hills, branches, and must be able to stear around trees - tight turns.* Review edited 8/4/2007

    It's a little gem of the Rochester area. Highly recommended, lots of steep drops and inclines, tight turns. Nice relief from the city.

    This park is a sweet ride. There's a lot more here than you can find on one visit, just keep turning ways you haven't gone. The stunts are gone which is good, if the park gets shut down then the trad. riders won't be able to go at all.

    A great ride with a little something for everyone. Be sure to hit both the north loop (off of tryon st) and the south loop (off of Browncroft). I rode it 5 or 6 times before I realized there were two halves. Be careful of the crazy guy on the four wheeler on the north end, don't ride where it says no riding. This guy was caught putting nails in the trails to pop tires because people were riding on his land. Over all a great ride and in my opinion the best ride within an hour of Rochester.
