Summary:
There are a lot of things wrong with these reviews, so I'll clarify some things.

A)There is no more riding at Song Mountain, this is a ski area that has been bought and sold numerous times, 3 owners ago they offered lift serviced riding, but no more, its been at least 10 years since this was last offered. A previous owner (maybe the current one?)unfortunately stopped all summer operations, they had a fun Alpine Slide that I still miss. They were actually pretty far ahead of the curve on the MTBing, but it was before the gravity assisted craze, so it was mainly xc trails that meandered across the ski area, pretty fun, but expensive.

B)Not in Jamesville, its a good 1/2 hour from Jamesville. Either Tully or Preble would've been a more appropriate location.

C)Its again about a half an hour from where the map says it is.

Recommended Route:
Don't go, there is no more biking there.

Thats the only reason I gave it a bad review, because you can't ride there. If you can't ride it sucks, but was fun back in the day.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bear Swamp State Forest (25 min. away), Highland Forest (20 minutes away).

If you live in the immediate area, check out Spafford Forest, its small, but nearby and always empty. It has some ok double track, single in scattered spots. Just be careful you may end up on private property, this happened to me, but no problems arose from it.

Summary:
This isn't really a "mountain", just a small ski hill. However, they throw you and your bike on a chair lift, take you to the top...you ride down. You do have the option of biking up. This is downhill galore and gore. Excellent single-tracks cut back and forth across the mountain. Steep 35-60 degree downhills available. I've seen people airlifted from here. Trails range from intermediate to scary. There is one "trail" that just goes straight over the edge of the downhill ski area. The first part approaches a 75 degree angle, and you develop tunnel vision as you go down.

Recommended Route:
I81 south to Tully, follow signs. I think there are 13 available trails at the top. #10 was very technical.

Summary:
I ride a hardtail but wish I had the loot for a softtail. I ski race at this place so I am biased, but even still it rocks. If you crave downhill this place is great. And I have never had my bike mishandled. The people that run this place are locals and they are a little out there but they are cool as hell.

Recommended Route:
Its all fun if you like downhill. Not a real mountain but for Syracuse it is great.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
SKYTOP at Syracuse University's South Campus. Check out its review.
