NY - Graham Hills - Mountain Bike Trail Review with Map and Pictures
Bikerag needs info on this
Description (Thanks Mike)- The trail offers a little of everything for intermediate to expert riders. I leave out beginners because there are some technical steep rocky spots just to get into the main trails that might frustrate a beginner. I have riden with 3 guys recently who wanted to try the sport and they spent most of the time walking and cursing. But once you have some basic skills and desire the course is great. The Blue trail is the main trail and travels about a 4 mile loop, there is one rocky/rooty decent and the rest of trail offers 3 groups of downed logs two small stream crosses one good climb and a bunch of short steep ups and downs - its a fun fast track that is roughly a 40 minute ride. The Red trail offers the most extreme downhill, there are 2 rocks that start the downhill each about a 5 foot drop that can also be rolled, the trail gets steeper and steeper with a few more rock drop-offs and the potential for some major (10 foot+) drops if you're into - i'm too old and scared. The orange and white trails also offers some good drop offs for the youngens, but mostly the whole course offers good technical fun with same fast single track riding. I would definately recommend a front fork with some travel - i ride a GT avalanche hardtail with a 2002 80mm Duke and its a great setup for this course - i used to ride a 1992 rigid specialized rockhopper on this course and it was ok, but eventually i beat the fork up too much, so i won't bring it there anymore. I would say that a heavy freeride or downhill bike might be tough because there are a lot of steep climbs, but most of the bikes i see there are full suspension Kona Dawg types.
