Hartwick College trails

Average Rating:    (3.25 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

Lots of potential here, with a little maintenance these trails could be a lot of fun. Mostly ATV-style trails, some fun downhill sections on the Western side. You can make many loops incorporating the Table Rock area and these downhill trails. Just do some exploring and see what you get. I wouldn't recommend making a long trip for these trails, but if you're a local they're a good way to get in regular training rides, get a quick fix, or just whittle away an afternoon.

Summary:
Trails have improved greatly in the last few years. The land adjacent to Harwick, Homer folks state forest has had 3 trails added in the last two years. The Oneonta bicycling club has permission to build on this land. There is a trail Kiosk at the top of the Oneonta Job Corps area. Trails are Black Coffee, Red Maple Rip, RIP, Stinger, and Shakedown. Also double track.
Club has not been given permission to create new trails on Hartwick property as far as I know. They do have permission to ride on Hartwick property. Hartwick wants people to gain permission , permits before they use Hartwick property. I ride there all the time and have never seen anyone patrolling the trails. I have seen security ride to the top of the hill next to Stawberry fields. They really have tried to cut down on unauthorized motor traffic.
Great riding here 1 + hour. Also try College camp trails SUNY Oneonta and trails behind High school and Wilbur Park.

Recommended Route:
Table rocks to RIP, Stinger, Red Maple Rip loop, Black Coffee back to RIP

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Blood Sweat and Tears Trail Kiosk in Wilbur Park, College Camp Trails, Easier New Island Trail Park in Neawa Park Trail start is in Catalla Park but you have to go to Lettis Highway Under Interstate 88 turn left onto on ramp trail is between on ramp an the river.

Summary:
I used to ride these trails all the time when I lived in o town. For an extended ride go over to SUCO and hit up the college camp trails. The trail head for college camp is above the softball fields. Once your down with college camp, exit onto upper east street and hit the high school xc trails that run above the school and wilbur park. Find the trail head for the high school trails by turning down a semi private road thats the first left above the entrance to the high school-- there's a white building there. Follow the road up to the end to the trail head. If you hit up all three --- hart wick, college camp and Wilbur park, you can get a good two hour ride in.

Summary:
Not too many great things, but nothing too degrading either (undavoidable mudholes, etc). With some work (hopefully this fall/winter) there is definitely potential for some sweet stuff. Singletrack needs to be raked (ahh, don't they all) and hopefully there will soon be some fun technical options (drops and chutes). This is a great place for night rides, especially when the ground is good and frozen and there's an inch of snow on the ground for reflection.

Recommended Route:
Go up Job Corps, down Sosa's singletrack (actual name?), across Strawberry Fields and past the maintenance area, then either bear left down the fire road.

Soon to be: on the fire road downhill, took to the right for a singletrack entrance. This will loop around a rock outcrop and down through a little chute. Wahoo!

Take a stop at Table Rock, watch out for the glass. Head down towards Hartwick Campus on the techy singletrack along the ledge. Bomb down to campus, and proceed to impress all those around by flying off all the terraced lawns there.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Blood Sweat & Tears-behind Oneonta High School
Renwick Property
SUCO College Camp trail system

Summary:
Like the description says, these trails are a decent excursion for local riders. They're pretty much all on Hartwick or public land, so you don't have to worry about getting chased away.

Recommended Route:
I live in the West End so I ride up Morgan Ave and then head into the woods on the dirt trail at the end of Morgan. I like to ride straight to the top of this trail, then maybe head over to Table Rock, shoot back down and then back up the Morgan road trail, and then ride to the North end of the field and explore those trails a bit. Basically just go and see what you can find. If it looks like a trail, check it out!
