Single track and fire roads. Beginner and intermediate level terrain. Many intricate trails to choose from with technical obstacles, short climbs, with a lot of tight turning. Great for a half day ride with some friends and awesome for a quick morning workout!!!!

All skill levels. Great place to sharpen your technical skills.

These are shared use trails. Watch out for dogs off leash. Do not lock bikes to trees. It is illegal in New York City and subject to a fine up to $1000.00 (no kidding). These 243 acres of Cunningham Park are a designated Forever Wild Preserve, providing forest habitat, vernal pools and kettle ponds for sensitive wildlife. The Southern Forest in the southeast section is one of the most undisturbed natural areas in the city. The Northern Forest, in which the mountain bike trails are located, was previously farmland. Old stonewalls and walkways are still evident. Tulip and flowering dogwood trees dominate this younger forest. Along 73rd Ave. are restrooms, ball fields and other recreational facilities. Use caution when crossing the bridge over the Clear view Expressway. Last time we were there, there was LOTS of broken glass and glass bottles and cans strewn about, decorating the walkway and fence.

Directions:

Take I-495 (Long Island Expressway) to Exit 27S, Clearview Expressway South. Get off at first exit for 73rd Ave. Turn left (east) onto 73rd Ave. Turn left (north) onto 210th St. Trailhead is at 210th St. and 67th Ave.

Public Transportation: F train to Jamaica/179th St. Ride bike east on Hillside Ave., turn left on 188th St. (Saul Weprin St.), right on 73rd Ave., turn left onto 210th St. Trailhead is at 210th St. and 67th Ave.
