Blue Mountain Reservation

Average Rating:    (4.18 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 62

The trails are color marked similar to ski trails. Red: advanced, Orange: intermediate, Yellow: beginners. The trails are shared with hikers and horses. However,hardly used by hikers especially in the deep woods but be careful of horse poop. The trails are mostly singletrack. The trails offer traditional East Coast conditions including rocks, roots, branches, and climbs. But, what goes up must come down. Similar to other trails in the area (Graham Hills, Mianus River, etc.), there are offshoot trails off main thoroughfares. Just keep your eyes open. Also, riders looking for a quick spin can find loops (routes) shorter than trails located at Graham Hills.

Summary:
Blue Mountain is a great cardio workout. I would recommend it to anyone who tight and flowy singletrack, but also to the rider who likes the occasional roller. It is not a difficult place to ride, but it is a big place and easy to get lost. On weekends, there are many people in the parking lot that first-timers can probably ask to join their ride or ask for suggestions. I really enjoy the place because it is both challenging and fun.

Recommended Route:
I don't have a specific route because I usually do something different AND it depends on the riders I am riding with on that given day. Routes are usually game-time decisions, but I will give 2 options from main parking lot (and these can be ridden in reverse to make it seem like a whole new trail):

1. (about 2-3 hours) Depew (warm-up), El Cap, Ned's, Lower SIS, Stinger 2, Upper SIS, Mixed Monster, Bailey's, My Favorite, Rambler

2. (about 3-4 hours) Stinger1-2-3, Upper SIS, Lower SIS, Bailey's, Tin/Yang, Debacle, Depew (cooldown)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Sprain Ridge, Graham, Ninham, Jungle Habitat, Ringwood

Summary:
This trail could use some simple improvements. Unfortunately, the trails aren't clearly marked. Hence, new riders can find it intimidating.

Summary:
Wow...full of large rideable boulders, including one causing a nice endo when my sweaty hand slipped off the bars. This place caused my first ever double flat in the same ride...a nice push back to car the result. Still, this place is excellent for technical challenge, Neds left lung a true rip thru the woods. Hearing shotgun blasts caused some nervousness, but I was told of this and stayed inbounds. I'm a Rochester ny technical xc rider and was stoked to ride here even after the flats.Worthy!
