FWIW There is a site out there called www.Meetup.com and they have a Rochester MTB group:
www.rochestermtb.com/

Apparently there are 96 members... Anything the WNYMBA can do to wrangle some of them in???

Yes, Like Keith says, a few of the trails are open for riding. The Orange trail is open for riding (the fun swoopy singletrack with the great descent) is open, but it gets quite a bit less maintenance form the trail crews. Sometimes a few trees down & often hikers on this trail so be on the lookout for them too!

Most, but not all, of the course is open for biking. The trails at Cutler seems to be overgrown / less maintained now that the focus has shifted to OCP.

Gannett Hill (10k road climb with great views), hit up OCP for some loops, head down the orange trail, cross the road to Boy Scout camp, climb up the wagon road & jump on the old 24 hour course, ride the ridgeline, descend out. Take the road south to Naples, turn left onto the abandoned road, descend right down to Bob & Ruths for a burger & milkshake. Good 3+ hour ride...


Is this Cutler that you are taking about here? Is it open for riding? I remember doing the race there a while back and loving the course. Gotta go back sometime.

Rumor has it that there are ways to string together 100 mile rides if you know what you're doing. Even further out for you is Shindagin which is more torwards Syracuse right near Ithaca. I guess all of this is only if you're willing to drive south of Rochester a ways.


No secrets to the Naples stuff, you can really tie some great rides together down there. Best bet for 'full details' is to check in with the Geneva Bicycle Shop ( www.genevabikes.com ) ask for Mark/Chad/Hanggi, they can hook you up with a good route.

Hi-Tor: Park at Parish Hill, climb the road to the gate, head up the service road, dump out onto Parish Hill again, take next 2 rights to drop into Hi-Tor. Follow the orange trail through hi tor, jump out on thee service roads & grab the DEC (orange/blue) down to the bottom, back to the road and head to Parish parking lot about a 2hr or less route.

Tie the 2 together for a nice epic (2 miles apart from each other for start) & there's even more out there. Big Climb & Big View days!

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.
