One of the first trails we took with our bikes was the O&W rail trail in Mountain Dale NY. The trail is only four minutes away from us with the car. We can also take the bikes from our home, up and down some crazy hills. By the time you get to the trail, you’re already exhausted and out of breath, but in a good way. The trail is short, only three miles. If you keep going through Woodridge and do a little local riding, you can end up in Hurleyville with a lot more miles under your belt.
The Mountain Dale trail is a short trail that has a convenient bicycle shop in the area. The Cinder Track Bicycles has a variety of bicycles you can purchase as well as rent. They also do bike repairs and are extremely knowledgeable about all things bicycles.
