      NYC's best legal single track trails. Mountain biking is only allowed in the North Woods section of Cunningham Park. Please do not modify or build new trails without our permission. Please wear a helmet and help us keep the park clean.

      The park is divided by the Clearview Expressway but a pedestrian bridge connects the two halves. There are about 3.5 miles of trails on each side with a 1.5 mile loop in the Middle Woods section south of 73rd Ave. There are no steep hills and very little elevation changes but we made the best of the terrain.

      The east side is easier with double track and some single track trails. It is perfect for beginners or families. The west side is more wild with mostly single track and steeper terrain. We suggest you ride the east side as a warm up, the loop will bring you back to your start point, then take the white trail, which takes you to the pedestrian bridge and cross over to the west side.

      The trails are one-way, please observe the trail markers. If you don't see any trail markers...you're going the wrong way Green Circle beginner trails are blazed green, Blue Square intermediate trails are blazed blue and Black Diamond advanced trails are blazed in red.

      There are two pump tracks on the east side, one beginner and one advanced. If they are covered they are considered closed to protect from damage. There is also a tabletop jump area on the east side as well as a play station where you can practice drops. The west side has a slope style jump area for advanced riders called the jetline and running parallel is a rock garden. There's something for everyone here.

      The trailhead is located on 210th St and 67th Ave about two blocks south of the LIE (495) and is accessible via train (F & J), the Kissena Corridor or the Motor Parkway Path.
