Goose Pond Mountain

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

Trails are all single track that vary from open fields to woods to nice mountain trails. There is enough trails to keep you busy for hours. Trails are not super technical but give you a good workout with some nice jumps and ability to get some good speed.

Summary:
I agree with DC below. I went there today, and its obvious that this place can become a real morass if its been raining - it was slightly above freezing, and it was still wet despite the recent low temperatures. The orange trail is relatively well-marked, but there are a couple of places that do require some figuring before you know exactly where to go.

I'm glad I checked it out, but the trail is too simple, although I admit to having only ridden the trails on the right hand side. Its like Stewart State Forest, but without the technical features, so it was not my cup of tea. If you're a beginner it's a great course; if you're intermediate or above, unless you love flowing track without much technical element, it is not worth it; I recommend Stewart State Forest or Lippman Park.

Recommended Route:
We took the orange trail. Park across the road in the parking lost, and ride up the road. After a short descent, the orange markers point to single track on the right hand side.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Stewart State Forest or Lippman Park.

Reviewed by: Mr. DNA , from Goshen, NY

Summary:
Goose Pond is a bit on the small side, but it offers excellent singletrack-some fast, some technical. Few people who live in this area even know about it, so you usually have the whole place nearly to yourself. There are at least 20 miles of trail, but hit the technical stuff, and you'll get knackered before you hit all of them. Also, ride to the top of Goosepond Mt....it's the hill on your left as you enter.

Recommended Route:
After entering, most of the trails on the right are smooth and twisty/swoopy, and the trails on the left are hilly and technical.
