 A relatively gentle but pleasant ride with some climbs to get the legs and lungs going and a few challenges and whoo hoos. A great place to go if you're in the Watkins Glen area and looking to get some off road miles. Watch out for and be courteous to horses, cows and hikers. The trail essentially begins at the Horse Camp. Also passes through some active pastures, please close and secure the gates. Other trail options exist including The Burnt Hill Trail and portions of The Interloken Trail.
