Ludlow Creek and Hammond Hill seem to be grouped together here, if I am reading it correctly. Actually they are two different State Forests. Ludlow Creek State Forest is near Oxford, NY. Hammond Hill State Forest is in Freeville, NY, which is near Dryden, NY.

They are both listed at this website in region 7: http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/34531.html

This entry is incorrect, this is simply party of the Fingerlakes trail and sadly is not bicycle friendly
