Named one of the 10 best mountain biking trails by Bike Magazine, this 22 mile long section of the Finger Lakes Trail system is one of the few sections open to mountain biking. This trail features mostly wooded single track, stream crossings, climbs, descents, and amazing views of the Genesee River Gorge.
If you don't want to ride the entire length there are several access points along River Road where the trail and the road meet or a short access trail connects the two.
Watch for hikers during fall when the leaves are changing color.
Park at Mount Morris Dam visitors center. The trail head is on the south-west end of the parking lot.
It is also possible to ride in the other direction, starting near the Letchworth State Park Parade Grounds entrance in Portagville, NY.
Not to be ridden during spring while the ground is wet.
