Trail Description
About this trail
Start up hill from parking area. Cemetery is to the right, double track up to water storage tanks to left. For a first time visitor I recommend exploring the network by loosely circling the reservoir counter clockwise. Your route will be bounded by private land to the right (east) and the reservoir to the left (downhill). Once you work around to the north end and start heading west and south, you will have W. Pine St on the right and the reservoir on the left. Lots of intermediate to advance single track, off camber, roots, rocks, natural and man-made bridges. The trail is a bit overgrown in parts but very scenic. Nice location to have a picnic and take a hike to the falls at the south end (reservoir outlet).

Review: This is a fun place to ride with mostly natural obstacles and minimal maintenance. I have to travel for riding and won't hesitate to visit here again. Shindagin Hollow outside of Ithaca is quite a bit better in set up for Mountain bikers. If I were to rate just between shindagin hollow and Waverley Glen it would be five and three respectively.

Review: This trail is also called (GlenWood). I ride this trail just about once a week. This trail is not for beginners and yes it needs some work. The local riders,walkers and runners take care of these trails. This is an excellant trail for a challenge and if your not up for that you can stick to the main trail. As for the pipe sticking up out of the trail thats not part of the trails. The dike that goes between the two resevoirs is not part of the trail. * Review edited 9/5/2011

Review: When someone posts a trail and describes it as "sweet single track" I expect to be able to ride it. This is not the case with this trail in it's current condition. I tried to ride the red diamond, white diamond, blue dot, and several unnamed side trails. There is absolutely no trail maintenance going on, and several of the trails are overgrown to the point that they are dangerous (vines grabbing handlebars, obscuring obstacles and holes, etc.). For part of the ride I spent more time busting brush and clearing crud out of my drive train than actually riding.

20 miles of trails is definitely a step in the right direction, but they need considerable work. And in case anyone was wondering, pieces of rebar and iron pipe sticking straight up 4"-6" in the middle of the trail are not valid mountain bike obstacles. They're just dangerous.
