Summary:
These trails here are pretty amazing, not going to lie.
The trail difficulty's range from really easy to challenging, along with them being clearly marked with big wooden signs attached to trees displaying the name, difficulty (green circle, blue square, single and double black diamond) and a tagline or tips for that specific run. Even though it's easy to get disoriented, it's hard to get lost, trust me.
Most of the two-way trails are really twisty and have a lot of curves and turns (especially trails like Owl's Maze, just look at it on the map) and if you're into that, then you're going to have fun. If not, then most of the one-way black diamond trails will have you satisfied, especially Humpty Dumpty, which is pretty much a really steep up-and-down speed run.
Also another thing to note is that if you hate tight squeezes between trees and other objects with a passion, be warned. Except for the quick 15 second Dragon's Back, all the trails are in the middle of mild to dense wood, and unexperienced riders are expected to hit at least a couple of trees. I've been going there for about 2 years now and I still crash repeatedly into trees on Owl's Maze, a twisty intermediate trail.
An advantage this park has is that you start in the parking lot, go up one of three trails, and at the top you are at a field. From there all the trails are in an oval kind of shape, and it's like a ski mountain. Also, trails connect conveniently, so if you go down one, you can do another without having to go back up the same way.
As for the fun factor, you can't lose. It's amazingly fun. It doesn't matter if you've been riding for 20 years or 20 days, you will have a blast.
Also the pump track and newly updated skills course/burns trail connected from the parking lot is fun and I believe the only one of it's kind or at least the largest in the Ontario county area. I might be mistaken, but it's pretty awesome, nonetheless.
SO yeah, Dryer is amazing. Go there if you don't live too far away. I live about a 25 minute bike ride and a 8 minute car ride away, so I'm very lucky to be so close!

Recommended Route:
As for getting there, it's pretty easy. If you live near Victor, it's on Dryer road, which is easy to get to from the village of Victor. If you like farther or need help just Google Maps it.

Regarding getting to the trails, I usually just take A-train (fastest way IMO), or you can go up Gully (longer and steeper, not good just trying to get up fast), or go up Epping Forest Ext. and ride up the gravel pit road. When they let out you are ready to ride! All three trails leading up are super easy to spot and marked.
Getting down, if you're on the east side of the park, you can go down Bones and break off onto Epping Forest Ext. and you're back at the parking lot. Anything west of the entrance/exit to Owl's maze and your best bet is either Gully Down or A-train, but if you ask me, Gully Down is a more enjoyable ride.

Do yourself a favor and look at the areal map. It's simpler than it sounds. http://www.mygroc.com/images/stories/MTB/Dryer_Map_Arail_Trails.jpg

Not sure. I'm only 14 so I don't get around much else.

Summary:
I have ridin these trails for a few years. And each year I have ridin them less n less n less. If you are the type of rider that likes to ride trails that r left right left right left and anther right in about 20 feet of trail then go for it. The double black trails r either straight up and down or crazy off camber turns that just r not fun. Its all doable just not fun. For all the down trails there is only one good climb that isnt totally straight up just kinda. The ppl that say these trails r amazing prob just got done doing a road race the weekend be for.
If you want to take a new rider out on there first ride take them here. But other than that this place is a once a year place to ride. Because I like to mountain bike not to think I am.

Recommended Route:
Just ride around you cant get lost.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
For ppl that want to do real mountain biking try Eville and ride the bent rim trail. Or ithica at shindagen. Or naples at ocp, hi tor, stid hill. Or go to geneva on monday night around 7 pm and ride at glenwood with some ppl that know a thing or two bout ridin fun trails.

Summary:
Best trail I have done so far. If you're lucky you might see deers along the way. Great trail for all types of levels. The double black diamond trails are really double black diamond trails. You Victor New yorkers are very lucky to have this trail. To those who make this trail possible, a big heck yeah!!!

Recommended Route:
just go up and down the whole thing. You probably would want to warm up with the bone-apart 1st before doing the difficult trails though.

Havent done others around the area

Summary:
many new trails have been built this season(summer/fall '06)
they are fun for everyone! The Victor parks and rec dept. is more progressive than most govt. and this park shows us how much!
A new pump park and new single track makes this spot a destination to get to!
The trails were built 100% by bike riders so everything flows great.
Thanks to Trailblazers and Towpath bike shop for building this much needed legal trail system so close to Rochester!!! support those guys (internet sellers never built anything!)
Ride hard or go to the parking lot alone!

Recommended Route:
I like to go up A-train and circle the top on Tree and ziggy before taking the one ways... bone apart,Owls maze and Den are classic western NY terrain. CMP(check my pants) is a rush as is Black widow...don't go slow or you won't make it . ride your bike.

Summary:
The town of Victor needs to be commended for the good job in laying out this park and the trails. There are even a couple of jumps there by the parking lot. Nice to see a town encouraging this, unlike Brighton taking down the freeride park in Tryon.

There's something for every skill level here.

Fully enjoyed my day out there. Only one small problem was that the free maps there have names for the trails, i.e. "Ziggy" etc., but the trails themselves have signs that just have one letter "Z," etc. so they can be a little confusing. But this is a small footnote to a wonderful park. It's smaller than Tryon, but with the great number and choice of trails, you won't notice it. Bravo!

Recommended Route:
Use google maps or yahoo maps and put in "Dryer Road" and "Victor, NY." Or take RT. 96 south/east, follow until the sign for Bristol Mt. says to turn right off Rt. 96, then take your 2nd right to Dryer Rd. Park is on your left. Start from the top of the parking lot, and get a map there. There's even a water fountain in the building by the skate rink.

Stid Hill (sp?), Hi Tor.
