Pittsfield State Forest Mountain Biking

Wether you are a seasoned pro on the MTB or a brand new rider, you will find something fun to ride in Pittsfield State Forest!  Not familiar with riding at PSF?  Here are some recommended routes to get you started!  All of these recommended rides are linked to the TrailForks app and website, an amazing resource for finding and then navigating MTB trails.  Download the app and load the maps before you leave to ride, don't worry you don't need cell service once you load the maps.  These routes all leave from the Lulu Brook Parking lot and enter the woods just to the right of the wooden cabin by the paved road.

Honey Bear Loop - 1.3 miles beginner

Link to TrailForks trail listing

Super fun and mellow trail, one recommendation would be to ride this trail clockwise.  The Trailforks loop shows to ride this trail counter clockwise.


Snoopy Loop - 8 Miles intermediate

Link to TrailForks route

Loved the Honey Bear Loop but want more?  This tour of the PSF family trails will get you on most of the trails in the network.  It is said that you can see an outline of Snoopy in the map.... I will leave that to your imagination.

Up Honolulu and down Turner - 7 miles advanced

Link to TrailForks route

Hope you brought your climbing legs for this classic Pittsfield State Forest loop. Climb up the switchbacks of Honolulu trail, navigate the top of the mountain on Tapanzee trail. Once you hit the paved road check out the amazing view of NY state just past the turn for Turner trailhead drop in. The ride down Turner trail will be a great reward for all the climbing you just did, maybe you will come back for another lap... I would recommend descending down Parker Brook
