Hey Good people of MTBR
Any of you Guys or Gals interested in Sunday afternoon rides, I usually park @Rockland Lake (via Lake and 9W), warm up around the lake and then go to Hook Mountain to Haverstraw and Back
its a nice ride not too intense if anyone is interested, we leave around 5:30 so its not too Hot!!!

I ride mostly Ringwood and around Harriman, so I'm not too familiar w/ Hook. Is this singletrack? Technical or rolly? I'm interested in checking out some new space, but I've always avoided R'land Lake, thinking there wasn't too much trail out there.

it is a manicured singletrack compared 2 Ringwood, but to some people its very hard, the view is incredible you ride parralel with the hudson river and rockland lake mountain, hardly anyone to intervene , put it this way sometimes its nice to ride fast and peddle for 40 minutes without dismounting for mother nature....i think you will enjoy it even if your hardcore

The fire roads are smooth and rolling running parallel to the river, they are quite scenic, unlike the shady Piermont to Nyack fire road/rail trail.

The trails on the Hook Mtn ridgetops are very difficult and illegal (Long Path), with mandatory hiking involved. One popular loop starts from Nyack Beach State park, goes along the river on the fire road, then up the steep paved hill and back along the ridge top along the Long Path. It is very hard and not very safe unless you know where the drop-offs are. I wouldn't ride the ridge top on a weekend.
