Trail Directions
Many access points, but the easiest to find, head north from the village of Naples on Rte 245. 1/2 mile from the village is a DEC Satelitte area. Park there and follow the orange blazes along the creek.

Summary:
the Hi Tor Multiple Use area is huge and has tons of trails. you really have to know the area to find the sweet spots. the trail this refers to though is probably the best known. great switchbacks, good singletrack, some really fast sections. moderate climbing if you go the right way.

Recommended Route:
if you like to climb, park at the fenced in DEC area next to Naples creek and just follow the trail to the top of the hill and turn around and go down. or take a left at the top of the hill and follow a fire road to a nice lookout of Canandaigua Lake. but if you just want the downhill, park one car at the bottom, and take another car, go into naples, on 21 take a left up a dirt road and there is a place to park at the top.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
if you are insane and want some really steep stuff, go down 245 a bit to Clark's Gully (still part of Hi Tor)- i haven't gathered the manliness to conquer this trail on a bike yet... ive hiked it and there are parts where you are on your belly.. crawling.. seriously. BUT... I have seen knobby tracks, and sprocketed logs down it so it is ride-able.

Summary:
i've been here once and i'm looking to go back. i don't know exactly where i got into this area but i know it has some crazy stuff in it. lots of cool stuff to see like streams and gourges and stuff. some really steep up hills and downhills and somewhat technical. i can't remeber alot about this trail cuz i rode it like 2 years ago but its defately worth going back to. if you like XC riding its a good ride, lots of natural obsticals to get in your way and some fun down and ups. i'd say you have to be moderately in shape to have fun riding this place since if you're like me and don't bring a map you'll get lost and end up riding for a ways. if your looking for jumps, longrides, and stunt type riding its not really here (or at least i didn't find any), but if you're looking to just do some good hard XC riding and see some nature this is the place to be.

Recommended Route:
i can't remember how to get there but go up the main trail along to gorge. then it goes into a road somehow that is on the other side of the gorge... you can find a "deer trail" on the other side of the gorge that runs along the ridge of the gorge (its like a foot away from the edge at places & really hard to find). i found this trail to be not hard but quite scarey since its practically right on the edge of a 100 foot cliff, and weaves in between a zillion little pine trees... good heart pounding ride. also a fun technical down hill section right back into the parking lot next to that bike shop. fun stuff.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
i donno from rochester, check out tryon if you are up there sometime... good jumps, log rides, drop offs, and XC riding (has alot of stunt type riding that i also like to do)

Reviewed by: Trailbuilder , from Easthampton, MA

Summary:
The addition after Brinks Rd. is really worth it. Great singletrack, though the descent has been chopped a bit by a new logging road. Watch for the red trail (road), the markings are almost the same and can pull you off the singletrack. The climb up from IV is a real biatch.

Recommended Route:
DEC, up the switchbacks, left on Blue, left on FLT (orange) to Brinks RD., left, first right (follow orange blaze), left to more singletrack, to Italy Valley Rd. Return

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Harriet Holister, Letchworth, Stid Hill

Summary:
great trail for switchbacks, lots of hidden branch trails if u know your way around, lots of stupid hicks up here who'll try to shoot ya if u screw around on their land but other than that theres nothing to worry about except walkers who'll generally get out of the way if they hear u coming, no patrollers, check out the jumps off the side of the trail near the top of the hill

Recommended Route:
start at the state construction/maintenance area by the creek off north main st. in naples(many other better ways if u know your way around: try through the creek at the vineyards)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
stonybrooke in dansville is great for trials riding.lots of picnic tables and huge drops(10ft or more) with decent trannys
