I'm going to be vacationing in August around the Saugerties/Woodstock area with family (I'm from Ohio). Can someone point me in the direction of some challenging singletrack that might be and hour or less away? I was looking at the map and noticed that nearby are some mountains (Slide, Indianhead, West Kill) so I'm hoping there are some good local trails.
I usually ride a mix of XC and AM, but really love technical riding (rock gardens, etc). I would consider myself to be in the intermediate/advanced skill level. If anyone knows of any trails in the area, I would appreciate some direction. I've been looking for a local site with trail descriptions, but haven't been able to find anything.
if you don't have a gpx i'd recomend a compass, by the way google map says you can gain access via 28, you needs to turn after hess (on 28w) onto morey, then right on sawkill, another right on jockey hill park at cul du sac
here's onteora lake. some one posted it may be more challenging on a hard tail
definately check the fats in cats web site for additional info
if you race a bit here's some info as they have a race at windham & belleayre in august. also Riedlbauer's in sept. is just up the road from my campsite:thumbsup:
I ride a full suspension and really am into the techy stuff (love rock gardens), but i enjoy flowy trails as well. Sounds like onteora lake trails might be easier to get to for someone new to the area.
I have a gps app on my iphone, so I should be good as far as that goes. Is one of the trails labeled any better than the other? I'd rather not get lost while i'm on vacation. My wife probably wouldn't like that =)
i opted for the trail head at jockey hill for parking. i am not sure if your iPhone App has weighpoints. if so when you wheels down set a weigh point for bread crumbs purposes & you should be okay. bike anywhere except route 28 and your good to go:thumbsup:
