Great rolling singletrack with terrain to challenge all abilities. The trails parrallel the beautiful Sarnac river. The single track varries as you cross periodic washouts and ravines with quick technical downs and challenging climbs. The unique bedrock stream bed beneth the northway bridge challenges all riders with some nifty trials type riding and some big drop offs to rage. I ride these trails daily in season and still find new things to challenge me every time. Just follow the path of the river up to the military turn pike where you can cross the Sarnac and ride the back side. Just ride through the fence and look to your left off the gravel road just past the dam for the next section of trail. Don't let the dam scare you away some great trials await and they don't mind.

Summary:
This is the trail I first rode mountain bikes on back in 1988-1991. I always lived within a short ride from either side of the river and I would ride two or three times a week maybe more out there. Great trails to learn on. Challenging as well. I remember some steep rocky hills, washed out gully's, logs, mud, and singletrack. Very cool to see these trails online and to know that the enjoyment of them continues on years later. I think I might have to take a spin up that way next time I'm in the North Country.

I bent my rims here. Trails are pretty good. never found the drops.

Recommended Route:
Go to the sand pit,and as fast as you can go, launch into pit. go straight and come around back to pit. Make sure to go past/thru sand pit area.

Summary:
Mostly flat tight single track. A few stunts. A fun series of ledge drops (1-3') under the 87 bridge. Sewage smell coming from a small stream detracted from the ride. I wouldn't travel to far to ride these trails.

Summary:
The trail is fine if it is all you can get to but there is much better riding other places.

Recommended Route:
Be advised there is a new section of trail between the PSUC dorms and the footbridge. It leaves the dorms down a steep bank the the Saranac and follws the river heading upstream for a couple hundred yards. There is orange flagging marking the new single track on your right. It goes gently up hill and then surfs a side hill. There is cool 90 degree laft-hand banked turn near the end. Also a good rock obstacle off the side of the trail near that bend.

Summary:
alright but not the best of trails, watch out for the rednecks at the sand pit and dont gert chased by any hicks, if you do get on to the nearest single track. Some good bridges but be sure to check most of them before you ride them (there not the sturdiest) overall a good bike ride

Recommended Route:
start off in wiggle town and and go out to the field house
