Features -none-

Stay off XC-ski trails in the winter as they are groomed and bikes are prohibited. Be careful to watch for hikers on the weekends as these trails are very popular.

Overview

This ride features short climbs with semi-technical roots and is an overall fun after-work training area.

Need to Know

Lots of roots on the north side.

Description

This ten-mile loop is a great training ride that incorporates everything Sprague Brook County Park has to offer; some roots, a few rocks, a couple heart rate-rising short climbs, a few fast downhills, water crossings, balance sections, and views! This route is easy enough for most abilities and still fun enough for the experienced rider.

History & Background

A lot of trail maintenance is done every year by the Western New York Mountain Bicycling Association. This area is increasing in popularity as FAT biking becomes main stream and is the only place to ride close to Buffalo.
