MTB Riding

Hammond Hill State Forest (courtesy COE)

The parking lot is at the top of the hill, on the right, just before a significant downhill. Here on finds miles of jeep roads and trails. There are typically DEC trail brochures available at the trail register (across the road). Trails are well-marked by color-coded plastic trail markers, and correspond very well to the trail maps. See DEC brochure for more details.

Shindagin Hollow State Forest

Travel about 1/4 mile up Braley Hill Rd. A cornucopia of trails stem off this road, in both directions, offering challenges for every level of rider.
