Summary:
Pretty good trails, some rooty sections, but there is definitly some quality stuff to be found. The side that the pond is on is probably the best to ride, the other side is overgrown and muddy, but once you get past that section, you can take a great doubletrack downhill back to the road, then drop in and hit the Trail 17 downhill, which is definitly a blast.

Recommended Route:
Don't mis the trail 17 downhill, it's killer

Summary:
This place isn't actually in Syracuse...it's in Nelson. This place isn't really just for beginners. Anyone can find some fun on these trails...assuming of course that you go on the good trails. Some of the trails here really don't lend themselves to any type of good mountain biking. They are more for XC skiing. But some are good for bike riding also. To me some of the trails are the best mountain biking around, especially if you don't care about the mountain part. These are more like hills. There is nothing wrong with that just remember that before you drive 100 miles to come here.

Recommended Route:
Get a map. You don't really need one...You won't get lost but it helps if you want to have fun. All that I will say is that the best trails are on the side of the road that the pond is on.

Summary:
The trails on the pond side are great. I especially recommend trail number 19. It has a great downhill and is a little bit more technical than the rest of the area. I chose to continue my ride across the road on the other side of the pond which was a pretty bad decision on my part. The trails are covered with prickely bushes which get really bothersome and when the trail is blocked by a fallen tree the trails are often times hard to find again. The maps that are provided are decent but there are a lot of off shoots of trails that are not marked. I strongly suggest staying on the pond side of the park.

Recommended Route:
Start at the 2nd parking lot coming from the north and head to the pond on the right trail. You'll come to some camp sites. Pick up a map and take trail 3 around the lake and by the dam. Continue on trail 3 and make sure you hit trail 19 its sweet. For more information go to http://bikeloft.com/site/page.cfm?PageID=34.

Summary:
Geeze, everyone is bashing my favorite place to ride. XC single trak with roots and mud through the woods and around the ponds. The beavers are busy raising the water though, they have succeeded in getting the water to flood the damn and made one of the bridges into an island. Be carefull on them bridges, wet wood thing, slip. Location is west of Morrisville, south of Route 20. You can enjoy any length of time. Lots of overlapping loops and thats just on the pond side of Jones road. On the west side, theres more and if you go all the way theres a great downhill to a little bridge and if you climb the hill heading south from there and go back to Green road you can drop down to Rosie's Tuscarora Inn for a nice meal and beverage. That would be right on the lake which is just north of Erieville. Replenished you can crawl back up Green road and do another bunch of loops and make it an epic ride. Want a tour guide, instigate me at gbs@madbikeguy.com or I have givin you enough indicators as to where it is. Enjoy!

Recommended Route:
From south parking lot on Jones road go down and around the ponds clockwise going over the damn and left into the woods when you get to the campsite road. Hang a right in the woods as that left will take you nowhere. Watch the downfall here as it seems that when things start to get fast there are always obsticles. When you get back to the campsite road take a right and go down and sign in at the kiosk(your vote for bicycling). Then go back and around the pond clockwise again and when you get to the damn, go up the hill and take the first trail on the right and have a blast. Special notes: "Roller coaster"(downhill from northeast corner), "Pinball"(downhill switchback between the parking lots). Be careful please. [For Horse-sake say hi!]yes you may encounter horses, your voice will calm the horse as they trust humans.
