Trails are managed and maintained by the NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation.... So they are free of most debris,fallen trees etc.... The terrain varies widely,...from relatively flat to some fairly steep hills,...dense pine to open wooded areas.... and among the 'South Trails', there are two pretty good sized ponds,....with trails running right along shore....

Summary:
Oakley Corners has 2 completely different sections. The south section is fairly easy riding and somewhat flat. The North side is set on the side of valley and is amazingly fun if your into it. It is pretty technical with many rocky creek crossings. Its a good area to test your skills and your bikes strength. Most of the trails are well marked. In the spring and fall its wet and the mud is about knee deep. If your not swallowed by the mud you better watch out for the bugs. Overall Oakley Corners State Forest is awesome and has trails for just about any style of riding. The landscape isnt half bad either especially in the fall although all the leaves on the ground can make riding somewhat more technical.

Recommended Route:
Grab a map, find a trail that sounds good to you and have fun.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Chenango Valley and Ive been told Jenksville State Forest is good too although ive never ridden it, im hoping to this spring.

Summary:
Lots of singletrack on the north and south sides. South side keeps to a more constant grade but beware of all the routes. North side some very nice climbs and decents with far less roots, some more technical stuff also. All in all a very good place to ride, trail maps available at sign in on Hullsville/Dutchtown road intersection. Southside overall a 3.5, Northside trails get a 4.5

Recommended Route:
Southside trails 3,4,5,6 smooth rolling, 6 good technical, nice switchbacks. Trails 1 and 7 very root laden but still flow nicely. On Northside all trails in very good condition except trail 1 on the west side of the access road, kind of similar to riding in a creek bed. Enter in through 6 catch 3 then 4 and then back to 6, nice long ride with hard climbs but rewarding downhills.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Jenksville State Forest, Chenango Valley State Park

Summary:
Quite a bit of good singletrack. More than enough trails to get a great ride in. Fast and fun. One of the best places to get in a good x-country ride.

Recommended Route:
Almost anything across the road from the kiosk / map board.

Summary:
This place is impressive! Too bad the DEC hasn't made trail systems like this in more state forests in NYS. Some technical sections on both yellow and blue trails and for the most part mostly dry even during the rainy days of April. Trails seem to be made to mix uphills and downhills at random so not to end up walking the bike for too long. Looking at the sign-in book it seems to get alot of use.

Recommended Route:
We took Y1 to Y2 to Y6 to Y1 and back to sign in area. Then took B1 to the B2 loop. Will check out the rest later.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Shindagin Hollow (better trails there but this place is close) Sugar Hill (part of the Six Nations Trails)
