Mostly hard packed dirt with some rocky spots. The area is fairly small but there are a variety of loops so you can get in a full ride without too much repetition. The park is well known and gets some traffic, both bikes and hikers, so the trails do get some wear. The color coded trail makers are easy to follow but don't give you any indication as to the difficulty.

Summary:
AWESOME trail!!!!!! Im a daring beginner rider and absolutely love this trail! The blue trail is a very fun and challenging. Theres other trails to explore, but great to start off with. You can go around the difficult spots and the trail is well marked. There are hikers but everyone is courteous.
the ONLY thing i dont like is a killer hill that takes about 20 minutes to hike up, i cannot ride up. It's the only part i dont like about the trail- maybe there's an alternative route and i havent found it.

Recommended Route:
blue trail; i heard there's a yellow trail but havent had the time to look for it.

Cunningham park!
Another excellent trail. It's like being on a rollercoaster. Great challenges, technical and so much fun... Very well marked and kept.

Summary:
As stated in the name, this place is full of steep challenging hills. There is some good technical riding in here as well, and you can have some extreme downhill adventures if you're willing to climb back up again. Trails are marked and you can procure a map online. This is a convenient after work spot because of its location and easy access to the trails.

Recommended Route:
Park in the main area and get to the top of the hills. On the back side there are some intense trails full of big rocks that take you down the back side of the hills. Also, find the bmx section of the park that has tightly packed trails with jumps. These are fun.

Summary:
how could there be more uphill than downhill on 2-way trails?-hey, the backside of Mt Graham has been re-done! the eroded steep blue trail section has been closed off and new singletrack has been cut-very nice- Graham hills still excels in diversity-nice trails of different skill levels- good wildlife- good parking lot action- easy to get to.

Summary:
It's an okay trail. There is more climbing then down hill. There are a few technical trails it is similar to Mianus River and Saxon woods. And if get a chance you should go to this bike shop called Briarcliff Bike Works it is so awesome. I dont recommend it to beginners at all. It is a place that you go to get in shape.

Recommended Route:
Large Loop!!

Summary:
This week was the first time back in say 8 years or so and I don't remember it being this fun or well groomed the first time. It was incredible. Not bad at all in terms of loose rocks which is what I love about this trail; it does not break your rhythm at all! The rocks are more embedded in hard packed dirt which is great for flying and dicing through the turns and little roller coaster type whoops. Some natural rock ramps for jumping and some real bad ass hills for descending and climbing. Some hills were just too steep to climb w/o spinning out. Overall I really liked it. It was similar to Saxon Woods which I used to ride before it became illegal.

Recommended Route:
Follow the trail from the parking lot across the bridge and bear right after the bridge. Take the next right off of that at I believe, a fork, onto the red or pink trail. This will carry you along the fence by the Taconic Pkwy. Off of that there is a link to the blue trail which dumps you out on some back trails with sand berms and jumps which looks like it is used by motocross riders. Always look for the blue trail to lead you back to the parking lot. There will be a sign directing you to the parking lot. I never worried about getting lost. You could always ride to the sound of the cars and take the Taconic back!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
John Hand/ Bald mtn.-Behind Teatown Lake Reservation in Ossining. It's private land which is legal to ride on. Don't ride on Teatown's trails!
