Summary:
i wouldn't put it on the top of list of trails that i've ridden, but i guess it might be worth riding if you're looking for something different to do. this trail has some uphills that are fairly long and steep which will defately get you into shape. the downhills are somewhat fast but it is bascially a rough dirt road so its not a ton of fun. i'd say ride this place if you are completely sick of everything else that is around, and want to kill a few hours. this trail i guess in short would be a whole lot more fun on a dirt bike or atv or something, due to the long up hills and not that much fun downhills.

Recommended Route:
start behind "circuit city"... or "office max" what ever that store is next to k-mart and dicks. go up through the power lines.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
if you don't have a car, indian hill or woodcliff trail (crecent trails).
if you have a car: get out to tryon down near the city, its an old abandon park that is maintain bike bikers with jumps, log rides, drop offs, some really short but crazy "downhiller" sections (use that term losely), and a whole lot of good XC trails with plenty of steep downs and ups. somtimes crowded though, but plenty to do if you like to ride a few different styles.
if you wanna go for a long ride hit up some trails down in canadagua area in "high tour" (not spelled that way but sounds like that). crazy gourges and single track stuff you need to be in shape or its not fun. lots of stuff down there to ride on and there isn't a whole lot of poeple there if you wanna do some long XC biking. some crazy trails there but you havta look for them. last year we were riding on deer trails that were on a ridge, a foot away from a 150 foot cliff through a maze of small pine trees. lots of crazy stuff you can do but you havta go out and get off of the paths and do your own thing... go with a buddy cuz its a place where you get off of the path and hurt, you might not be coming out right away.

Summary:
I rode this trail a couple times. It's short, but a good workout. Vicious climbs (for WNY standards anyway) will get the juices flowing. It's only a double track except for a few short side trails. It's not very technical terrain, but the sheer slope of the trail in some places makes it tricky riding. Some sections are barely climable. Going down is a blast. There's also a grassey meadow on top near what looks like a radio tower. Ride it up and back twice or three times for a good after work ride if you live or work in the area.

Recommended Route:
Start behind Dick's Sporting Goods (across from the Eastview Mall on Rt. 96). Take the double track up to the top and back down. There's a couple side trails about half way down to explore too.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Not much. Riding in Monroe County is laim. Good riding is down near Bristol, Dansville, Letchworth, and the Southern Tier. Another short, but somewhat decent after work ride is the crescent trail east of Lyndon Street along the canal - take the moderately technical yellow trail and loop your way around.

Summary:
i've riden this trail like twice before, and i havta say that it can be fun if you more looking to get into shape then anything else. some good down hills but its mainly alot of really rocky dirt access roads. plus its posted so watch out. getting there can be tricky and you have to go on other poeple's property (which i don't mind but have been chased by several dogs). i'd say stay away from here unless you want something that is going to kick your a$$ cardio wise because the up hills are hard. i'd say this place would be lots more fun on a dirt bike if anything (which people do ride dirt bikes there ).

Other recommended trails in the same area:
cresant trail (indain hill or the other section near turk hill)
