Summary:
Awesome place to ride. We ride 1-2 times a week and never get sick of it! New trails and fun obstacles are always being made. Singletrack trails are plentiful and fun. Great downhills, but pay your dues on some killer uphills. Also tons of doubletrack, great for the beginner! I learned here. Map is probably useful for non-local visitor.

Recommended Route:
All singletrack

Reviewed by: Widemouthmason , from Buffalo

Summary:
I was there for the first time on Labor Day and found it to be a great experience. From the time we pulled into the parking lot where we got some friendly advice from a biker who has experienced the trail until we packed up it was awesome. Bring a camera, I didn't and I regret it. The view of the lake is beautiful. The drive from Buffalo is worth it when you have the time. The only reason I am not giving it a five is for length. But I did ride for over 2 1/2 hours. If you don't like single track don't worry, fire roads and snowmobile trails tie it all together.

Reviewed by: Paul , from Philadelphia, PA

Summary:
I have moved from Rochester to SW Pennsylvania and have not found any trails as exciting or well-maintained as the Hollister Spencer area. I really miss this place. Start at the top of the mountain and work your way counter-clockwise around the park for the best mix of terrain. Don't miss the single-track trails built solely for mountain bikes the branch off the main trail.

Recommended Route:
Half way down over-look trail on the rights there is a short sharp incline that drops into a creek and is followed by 1/2-3/4 mile of excellent looping single track.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Letchworth State Park, Allegheny State Park

Summary:
I RODE THIS AREA LAST WEEKEND WITH THE WIFE AND ALL I
CAN SAY IS, THIS PLACE IS AMAZING. IT'S GOT EVERY
THING HERE: DROPS, STUMP JUMPS, STEEP SWITCHBACKS, MUD,
SMOOTH SINGLE TRACK, SNOWMOBILE TRAILS, CREEKS,
WELL MARKED TRAILS. BRING LOTS OF WATER, MAP, COMPASS, AND EAT WHEATIES
CAUSE THIS PLACE HAS AN ATTITUDE. IT AIN'T BIG BUT
IT WILL TEAR YOU UP. I LIVE IN NEW JERSEY AND THIS WAS EASILY WORTH THE
RIDE THERE AND BACK, AND TRYING TO FIND ITS LOCATION.

Recommended Route:
START AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN AREA AND WORK YOUR
WAY DOWN TO THE ENTRANCE. FOLLOW THE TRAILS NEXT TO THE
ROAD FOR SOME GREAT SINGLE TRACK ACTION.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
NONE THAT I KNOW.
