      This place has hills! Lots of variety and the orange trail is one of the best downhills on Long Island. Ride Guide:
      If you are starting at the handball courts in Hidden Pond Park, ride west down the dirt road to the end by the fence and go right on the yellow/blue dot trail for a warm up ride that will bring you to the
      Mellow Yellow loop. After that head back on the yellow/blue dot loop to the Blue Cruzer loop. This will bring you up to a nice view point and then continue on to the Orange-Palooza black diamond trail or if you prefer stay on the blue loop. The orange trail drops you back into the blue loop and from there you can continue on the blue or choose the Pink-a-licious black diamond trail that will bring you back to the blue loop and back to the fire road by the handball courts.

      Go back up the blue then once you are up by Motor Parkway near the entrance to the Orange loop you can extend your ride by heading south across the street onto the white trail. This is a shared multi use trail that is two way as an out and back with some good hills and optional loops. Go down the power lines and look for the quick left onto the white trail. If you go all the way down the power lines hill you missed the white trail. There is a small section of flat trail across Old Nicohls Rd too. Once finished there, head back up the white trail to Motor Parkway and back into Hidden Pond Park.

      The Yellow trail = Easier
      The Blue trail = More Difficult
      The Pink trail = Advanced
      The Orange trail = Advanced

      If you start at Motor Parkway heading north, you can head down the blue trail (easier) or the orange trail (more difficult) and they both lead back to the blue and the pink (more difficult) is a loop off the blue then you can head north on the blue to the yellow trail (easier) then back on the blue heading south back to motor parkway. Cross across the roadway (motor parkway) to extend your ride and explore more hills. Go down the power lines and make a quick left on to the white trail then follow the white trail as an out and back as far as you darel.


      Enter Hidden Pond Park off Terry Rd then park all the way in by the tennis/handball courts. Then bike down the gravel road to the west. At the end follow the yellow/blue dot blazes to the yellow loop, it's a good warm up. When you return from the yellow then follow the blue blazes to the orange back to blue then take pink then back to blue and where you started. Then go back up blue to do the white trail then go south across motor parkway and do the white as an out and back then take blue back to the yellow/dot and your done. Don't take any unmarked short cuts or you may miss the good stuff.

      The Rinx concession building is open late, there are bathrooms and snack bars inside for your comfort and enjoyment, please patronize them.
