Calverton - TRAIL

Calverton - Trail, Calverton, York

Single track, tight, flat for the most part with a couple of Long Island "Climbs". Its newly cut but the Boy Scouts, and the loops are laid out well. Scuttle Hole is the best as it has a nice run down, is off camber watch the trees don't get you, a nice bridge to cross over, and a couple of benches to enjoy the view. Also the Log Flume is a lot of fun. The best part is since its new it's not packed down so it drains great after the rain. There are some stumps still there but there getting beat down and with more people going there they are getting smaller. Thanks a millon to the Boy Scouts for all there hard work!

My wife and I rode this trail for the 1st time. We're just getting into this kind of ride and we thoroughly enjoyed the trail. it's designed for beginner/intermediate riders so if you're a downhill expert you won't be challenged at all. we rode the basic loop and next time we'll hit the other parts

Calverton is the perfect foul weather friend. When all the other LI trails are knee deep in the nasty brown stuff Calv is ready for a run. It is my favorite trail to night ride on due to the miles of twisty tasty single track. In the winter when the ground is frozen solid, this trail is "way fast". For added fun, ride on a Single Speed, this trail was made for it.

No way would I describe this trail as highly technical. Yes, there are quite a few tight squeezes (good luck if you have wide handlebars and/or barends), and some sharp turns to keep your handling up, but the problem is that's all you got in terms of trail layout. You do have some descents and ascents that are good for introducing a beginner to mountain biking, but that's about it really. Honestly, this one I find to be tedious. I hate to say it because I wanna appreciate all the trails on LI, but there it is. Limit your riding of this trail because you can quickly tire of it and potentially lose out on its biggest asset... You see, when all other trails are muddy puddles, full of water, Calverton is dry. This trail drains like you wouldn't believe. That is this trails saving grace. When it's wet, that's when this trail really shines. So don't ride it when other trails are nice, cause you will get bored of it way too quickly. Instead, hit it when the other places are sloggfests and you will trully appreciate this little gem. BOTTOM LINE: An excellent spot to bring your friends who are newbies: force them to handle tight turns and no chance of encountering mud. WORD OF ADVICE: Watch the parking area as I've picked up ticks here numerous times. Check yoself and take precautions.

People go on about Roller Coaster, but I think Scuttle Hole is more fun. Therefore go through, hit all the Black Diamonds, when the second chance at Roller Coaster comes up, take it and work in another hit off Scuttle Hole. This'll make your ride much longer (cause you get additional hits of other black diamonds as well), but try to get the most out of the ride

Highly technical with some tight (and I mean hold-your-breath tight) tree passes. Nice trail over-all with little roots that plagues Cathedral Pines making for some good riding without being bumped off my hard tail. Well marked and maintained making this our new favorite after Cathedral started charging for parking (imagine paying for parking on dirt???!)

This is a 8 mile relatively flat singletrack with 5 advanced loops the are pretty good as far as Long Island riding goes. The adavanced loops are where most of the climbing takes place but the way the trail is set up you can do these loops over and over. Usually I do 2 of the advanced loops and the basixc loop and that is anywhere from 10 to 11 miles of riding. The trail has improoved significantly since I first rode it back in October due to the increase of rider from the closings @ Rocky Point, Eastport and Cathedral. The Oak scrub maze at the end still sucks though and the trail is no stillwell but it is in much better condition and stays dry no matter what the weather.

Customer Service

take the LIE to exit 68n (William Floyd PKWY) to route 25 east and go down 3 mile to the Wading River Motel and the parking lot is adjacent to the east... it looks like a grassy knoll.

Max is Mad   [Feb 18, 2000]

8 to 12 miles, tight single track and pretty flat, has to be ridden fast to have fun. The "Advanced Loops" are kind of weak compared to CP and RP; but its better than East Port. Also the DEC just took out the bride at Scuttle Hole for safety. The best thing about Calverton is the way it drains after it rains! Calverton can be rode the next day! Also "Weenie" get three what? Hot Dogs? If you don't like CP please stay away from Calverton.

LIE to County Road 48 North, to State Route 25 east (4 miles?) Right after Wading River Motel!

The trail is laid out real nice. The problem is that there are so many stumps in the trail it becomes annoying. Yeah, I dig riding over the stuff, that's what mountain biking is about, but I nearly got my teeth rattled out.
