“A quick loop through a unique landscape.”

3.5 Miles 65% Singletrack 374’ Ascent -376’ Descent 1,826’ Low 2,154’ High
Some trails have recently been closed for maintenance. Info is posted on the bulletin board at the parking area.
Moosic Mountain offers a very unique scrub forest type landscape with rocky, technical singletrack. Great views of Lackawanna Valley from the top of Blueberry Trail.
Need To Know
Further down the road in Hamlin is a great open-pit BBQ place called Kundla's. It's at 595 Hamlin Hwy and is cash only.
Staring at the parking area off of 247, climb up the rocky road to the power lines and turn right. After a little more rocky road you'll find a stack of rocks that marks the top of the Blueberry Trail. Follow the singletrack through some scrub pines to the peak to find some great views. Descend the trail with some rock gardens and wonderful serpentine singletrack back to the parking area.

This is a quick loop with a fast climb and then some payback if you're on a tight schedule, but there are many other trails in the preserve. The bulletin board at the parking area has a complete map.
History & Background
The original 1200 acres were purchased by The Nature Conservancy before the planned development of a business park was completed. This development is the reason there are dirt roads and retention ponds on the property. In 2008, in partnership with the Hubbard Bike Club, 8 miles of singletrack was built. The preserve has grown to 2,250 acres and new trails have been built.
