Blue Mountain Reservation

Average Rating:    (4.16 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 61

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:
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!

Summary:
Blue MT is SicK All-Mountain Riding on Loamy soiled singletrack and double thru rugged hilly Appalachian Oak-Hickory Forest dominated by a Chestnut & Red Oak canopy. A shrub layer of black huckleberry, maple leaf viburnum, wood ferns, hairgrass, and pin-cushion mossy conditions and highlighted by large amounts of hilly Rocky outcroppings.

Your Ride will take you through and up N over these Hudson Highland Granite Rocky outcroppings which date back over 1 billion years old and still show evidence of the last ice age. The Rocks range in size from small bowling ball gardens to car size boulders to house size gargantuans. Choose as you may but no your limitations for man is mortal.
The Rock-God gives you smooth transitions up N down steep formations as well as jumps N drops that will keep you smiling in Dreamland.
No need for wooden man-made bridges and stunts here, its given in its natural form and lacks nothing for even the gnarliest extreme-bomber.

Having the experience of ridden all over North America, pound for pound this trail system stacks up with the best of them when it comes to technical All-MT Rides. The mix of Loamy Soil, Constant Elevation Change, unique Ride-able Rock Formations, make Blue MT ever-challenging and a gift from the Mt Biking Gods!

Recommended Route:
The ultimate 3 to 4 hour loop:
Start at the parking lot off of Washington St & Montrose Station Road.
Dont take the jeep road up, take "Switchback" and right on "Lower Stinger" to "Middle Stinger" and then grab your ballz and left onto gnarly "Debacle". Stay right at end to "Summit" all the way to the crown jewel of the park "Mix Monster". Feel to pleasure and goodness and follow to "El Capitan" which has one of the largest formations then down "Dicky Brook" and left on "Limbo" and left to do the 3 mini loops of "Baileys". Then head up "Limbo" and right on "Stinger" down and left on "Summit" to "My Favorite Trail" and finish down on "Lower Stinger" to "Switchback" back to Lot. Now Congratulate yourself for Conquering Blue.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Sprain Brook, Graham Hills, Mianus River, Ninham are all good but not on the same level as Blue MT.
