      Ferncliff Forest is an old-growth forest of about 200 acres in the northwest corner of Rhinebeck, NY. Terrain consists of technical single-track and a main double-track road. Hunting is not allowed, making Ferncliff a great late season riding spot. A new fire tower was recently installed that offers spectacular views of the Hudson River, Catskill Mountains and surrounding area.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
