    Didn't ride the beach. Rode in Wolfes Pond. Trails need some maintenance but the trails are decent singletrack with pretty good obstacles.

    Trail is not in the best of shape. Appears to been neglected but it has great potential. Nice ride foe beginners and intermediate riders. Need to assemble a group to do some trail maintenance.

    Great trails for NYC, many more than are actually mapped out with decent climps and decent and a number of stream crossings. Can use some work, and some trails get absolutely un ridable in mid summer.

    If you live near the Wolf's Pond Trails, and the trails are iced over; this is a great ride to get you off of the trainer and out of the house. We were riding it in the after noon and the temp was 19 degrees F; up from the morning low of 4 degrees F. If you stay close to the water line, most of the sand has enough water in it to freeze, making it rid-able on a bike with 2.1 or wider tires. There were soft spots and areas where the ice was un ride-able.
    Had the wooded trail in the surrounding area not been so icy, we would not have ridden the beach.

    From what I can tell this place has basically been abandoned to the elements. The trail system has potential but it's full of eye-level thorny vines, downed trees, no consistent trail markers (I saw a few defaced or knocked down) and eroded sections lacking maintenance. This is a really nice park but as with Highbridge it appears that the mtb trails are being neglected. Only Cunningham gets the treatment it deserves.

    Considering this is within New York City limits, it is a great trail. Lots of roots and rock. Small elevation changes. Usable all year long, even in most (not all) snow conditions. During the middle of the summer Insects and occasional mud spots can take some of the fun out of riding here. Lots of deer in the area and several birds of prey. Mostly single track but there are some wide trails in the Totenville HS area. These trail will never make the pages of mountain bike magazines but if you are in the NYC area they are worth riding.

    Twisty singletrack and a lot of roots to jump over. Couple of steep drops and one nice downhill. Good trail system for beginner and intermediate rider. If you want to extend your ride just go one and half mile down on Hylan blvd towards Mt Loretto Forest.
