      The Beaver Brook Tract Trail network(aka "Hardy Road") is the first mountain bike specific trail system built in the Adirondack Park. Eleven miles of some of the sweetest single track east of the Mississippi traverse both sides of the picturesque Beaver Brook Valley. The valley lies in a rain shadow of Whiteface mountain, and is typically much warmer and drier than surrounding areas. This makes it one of the most popular spots in the region when other trails are too wet to ride.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      eBikes Allowed: No
      AKA: Beaver Brook
      Land Status: State Forest
      Land Manager: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation(NYSDEC)
      Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      ​From the intersection of Route 86 and Route 431 (Whiteface Memorial Highway), follow Route 86 toward Jay. Continue for just under 2.1 miles to Hardy Road on the right. Follow here for around 2.2 miles to the Wilmington Wild Forest, Beaver Brook Tract Trail System (aka. Hardy Road Trails) on your left.
      Be careful crossing the road here, especially with children or dogs. Cars drive fast past the parking lot.

      The Hardy Road trail network can also be accessed from the Wilmington Youth Park in downtown Wilmington via Noreens Trail and the Three Sisters Trail. Visiting riders who are prepared for a slightly longer ride are advised to use this parking area due to the limited space at the Hardy Road trailhead and the need to limit vehicle traffic on a quiet residential road.
      Disclaimer:
      This trail network includes New York State Public Forest Preserve lands. Please be advised that legal hunting and trapping activities may be occurring at any time of year within the Forest Preserve.
