Sprague Brook Park

Average Rating:    (3.82 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 11

There are two good sections to ride. The first is the cross country ski trail which is a scenic, easy to ride, twenty minutes path. The path used to be even nicer but a fair amount of gravel was introduced to preserve the trail. Still worth doing however. The second is at the trailhead for snowmobiling, just past a bridge over the creek. This includes a good climb for about 10 minutes, then a section of "moguls" and roots that's really fun and just a touch technical, leading to a 15 minute section of fairly straight but interesting single track. All of this is very scenic single track and ends up at the top of the park where you can turn around and shoot down with a lot of speed.

Summary:
Nice short well made and mostly singetrack. Pay no heed to the signs that say trails closed due to wet conditions. These trails are NEVER too wet. I recommend doing two loops for the more advanced riders. The loop is only about 6 miles. Great ride for all levels.

Recommended Route:
Go clockwise then counterclockwise.

Summary:
I used to ride this trail all the time when I lived in the Buffalo area. This is a nice rolling trail with some fun decents and challening short climbs. Lots of twisting singletrack and some fun creek crossings. I especially love the short fast downhill section as you exit the path onto the road.

Recommended Route:
I enter the park and go to the right. Park up by the ski-warming hut (the dirt road entrance to the right of the camping area). Go up the hill to the XC-Ski trail.. turn to the left as you come to the T-junction in the trail and ride that for a short bit. Keep your eyes peeled to the left on the trail looking for a green-diamond shaped trail marker. Thats where the singletrack begins. (you will have to turn off of the XC-Ski trail)

You will exit the trail on the road (about 6-6.5 miles) and you will have to follow the road back up to where you parked. (.5-1 mile maybe)

It sounds confusing, and sort of is, until you get used to it, or unless you have a map. But it's definitely a fun trail. Just follow the green trail marker signs and you will be fine.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hunter's Creek, Ellicotville, Golden Hill

Summary:
I'm from Philly and ride Wissahickon, pennypack... this place is worth checking out if in the Buffalo area. It’s a nice park and offers some good riding and scenery. The trail is a bit difficult to find however, but once you are on the trail the makings are excellent. From the main parking lot head off to the right and the trail will head moderately up hill for quite a while. The entire loop is about an hour depending on ability. There are no long climbs, but there are lots of ups and downs and several stream crossings. Most of the trail is along the edge of the hills and that along with many roots will keep you on your toes. There are a few log crossings along the way, but this trail is not too technical. The trail is almost single-track through pines, but at the end there’s about 1/2 a mile of down-hill double-track that makes for quite an ending. Just stay of the brakes and let'r fly!

Recommended Route:
Start at the right after the main parking lot. You could also start to the left just over the bridge going over the creek, but the first 1/2 mile would be a difficult climb for most.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hunter's Creek, but only when dry!

Summary:
We checked out this place today & enjoyed it. Lots of good hills to pump through with decent clmibs and twisty downhills. There's a challenge to bad had especially when going fast but moderate riders shouldn't have much trouble at a slower pace.

Recommended Route:
Went backwards from the normal flow as we couldn't find the initial entrance which is to the right of the bathrooms in the lower parking lot. We took a road ride to the top of the hill then took a freeride through the woods until we found it but enjoyed our route. I'll try going the other way next time to see which way on the loop I like better.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hunter's Creek - especially from the Hunte's Creek Rd entrance.
