Allegany State Park Planning Process
Written by Jon Sundquist

This post is a little behind schedule but I am getting it up finally because the plan is soon to come to fruition.

ASP has one of the longest history of supporting mountain biking, and was the place where many of the early WNY MTB pioneers got there first rides in.  The Raccoon Rally has been running at ASP for an incredible 22 years now!

The one drawback has always been the lack of single track, since the hiking trails are off limits to bicycles.  The master planning process starting in 2010 was the perfect opportunity to get permission to develop new singletrack trails.

WNYMBA submitted a large, comprehensive proposal for new trails.  You can download it here, but beware - with lots of figures is is 35 MB!  WNYMBA provided detailed analysis of the proposed routes.

State parks came back with some comments, requiring us to modify one trail, but we took the opportunity to add another trail.  We submitted a revised proposal for two of the trails, and got all three approved!

The three trails are:

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
