I rode pretty much every trail there this weekend and did not see any 20ft berms or 8+foot drops. The trail system is pretty much one long trail down the mountain with other smaller trails branching off from it and usually meeting back up with the main jeep road. Not really as many options as Plattekill but at least this place is marked and you don't start on a green trail just to find yourself on a double black diamond a few seconds later not knowing how you got there. The trails are extremely well cared for and the guides are great. The mountain can be rode on any bike. I used a 5 inch trailbike and had more fun than my friend on a hardtail although he still rode every trail. A full downhill bike is not needed but you'll just be able to go faster. Nice place, nice lift, no lines. Needs more trails.

I just rode the trail after a trailwork party. These new trails for 2007 are unbelievable. Just flat out goregeus. Now, this park is comparable to diablo and platekill. It's got the jumps, huge 20ft berms(i'm dead serious) big, 8+ foot drops, you name it. HUNTER MOUNTAIN>>>>>THE NEW FREERIDERS PARIDISE JUST # HRS> FROM THE CITY CHECK IT OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The best trails I ever rode. I would reccomend it to intermediate riders. It now has a new trail with berms on every turn. It also has some tight and technical singletrack. 1 day is 28 dollars. Their rating system is stupid. Anything downhill is a black diamond.

Customer Service

Go with a tour guide, and ask for Sue. She is the nicest person I know.

The mountain has once again started the trail network expansion. This past spring they have added a whole new freeride area. Hunter is no longer just for xc riders. Freeriders will be pleasantly surprised with the new features. I have only ridden up to mid mountain, but can't wait to see what awaits above. The lifts are scheduled to start runing this weekend.

Customer Service

As before, you should take a guded tour to see what is the safest way down before venturing on your own.

I went to Hunter this past weekend. The crew at Hunter added some new trails this season. I've been going to Hunter for the past 3-4 years now once or twice during the summer. I missed last summer so the new trials added some good, challenging riding to the already established trails. The day was great. No lines at the lift and some good steep, rocky, rooty, downhill riding. Take the tour from the top. The guides will show the best route down, depending on your ability. Also, for a good warm up hit the trails at the top of the lift and the new wood rides and teeter totter.

Customer Service

Go with the guides to for the first run, they will show you the trails. I don't remember all the names but B+B and wounded knee at the top, and the chute further down the mountain are good trails.

I tried mountain creek last summer which is a great place if you are looking for more jumps, stunts, and berms. It was a little to hard core and above my riding abilities. Hunter is more in my comfort zone but still challenging.

I rode the new race course yesterday and it was incredible. Portions of the race course are on the old track, but they cut alot of new stuff between Mossy brook & Hunter One. It's a really nice course but currently is riding soft because it is too new. It needs to be ridden. (So come out and check it out!) If you are not familiar with the terrain, take a guided tour. I venture to bet that you will be surprised as to what is available. The trail network has something for every riding ability and it's not only XC. It does have terrain for Downhillers, but serious DH's will find Plattekill more to their liking. The new race course (Approximately 5 miles) starts at the base lodge and then meanders its way up to Mosseybrook where it then takes you up the staircase, and up through the woods on skiers right of Mossybrook. Once your at the top of Mossey brook , the course breaks off to the left into awesome new terrain. They have built (2) new bridge crossings and there are numerous other interesting features that just have to experienced. This spits you out, almost at the top of Hunter one. You meander through the top area and go back into the woods for some more single track. This portion is on the old race course, but just when you think you know where you are, the track cuts a hard left up into new terrain. This new terrain is a XC rider's wet dream. You won't believe you are in Hunter. After the halfway point the course brings you back towards the top of the D chair. Then you have the pleasure of going downhill. The downhill section starts on this trail named "Nasty" It rained a little yesterday, but it was eneough to make this portion of the trail almost unridable and believe me, the name is appropiate. It was like sliding down greasy coneheads on a very steep singletrack. Once your through the "Nasty" it's off to the "Chute" another very technical trail after it has rained. Pray that it's dry on race day. Overall it should great track but definately needs to be seasoned. If you are not into the crazy pace of the race, you owe it to yourself to just leasurely ride and enjoy it. If you get the opportunity to induldge, let me know what you think. :)

The entire mountain has great riding and it accesses state fire trails that take you out for miles. A great ride is the fire tower trail to Rusk Hollow. The Rusk Hollow portion is about 3 miles of some great downhill action on an old fire road. The trail terminates on 23. You then have to ride about 2 miles back to the base area.

My only complaint with Hunter is that I waited till the last weekend it was open to ride. Next year I plan on buying a season pass. The trail are fast and techy. There is also great single track both DH and Cross country. The guides are great!!! You can hang with them or ride on your own. Better then Mount Snow at half the price and for me 1/4 of the distance. Go you will not be pissed!!!!

Customer Service

maps were confusing but the guids will hook you up. Everything we road was well above par
