Clark Reservation State Park is a geologic wonder of the last ice age and a botanist's paradise. The park's natural features include rugged cliffs and rocky outcrops, woodland and meadow, a wetland and a glacial plunge basin lake in which the surface waters and bottom waters do not mix. Fishermen can catch pickerel, bullheads and sunfish; while birdwatchers may observe cedar waxwings, kingfishers and woodpeckers. Guided nature walks leave from the Nature Center building, which also offers numerous exibits. Hikers may choose from five trails, including the cliff trail, which has a ledge overlook 175 feet above the water.

Easily the best mountain bile trail network in the Syracuse area. The trail system provides terrain for all skill levels with easier terrain in beginning and more difficult terrain as you get towards the quarry.

Really easy to find the trails if you park at the skytop lot. Lots of trails with technical, downhill and uphill sections and even a few old jump lines with wood features and drops. There's something for every type of rider.

*Cliff Trail* @ Clark Reservation State Park. This is a fun walk through the woods. We really enjoy the cliff trail. My kids call it "The rock climbing place" (See my picture as to why). We only wish it led to somewhere other than a private property field of power lines. There is a nice playground for the kids at the beginning of the trails and there are basketball and volleyball courts on the property and picnic areas. It is usually pretty empty as far as other people which is what we like.

Good trails with varying difficulty. I would say more easy/moderate. Some steep uphills and downhills. I went on a day it rained so I did slip a bit (and fell twice) so it would be better on a sunny day. Also the trails are not marked..... at all! make sure you bring a GPS unless you want to take the scenic route (lost) like I did.
