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.

Love this trail. Beautiful views of the lake with places to sit and enjoy. I ride this paved trail frequently, often enjoying the adjacent unpaved trail as well.

*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.

Excellent. A great trail, paved all the way for very safe cycling. The trail now extends continuously around three quarters of Onondaga Lake. What an amazing asset to Syracuse visitors and residents. You can experience sunrise, sunset, forests, manicured parkland and lovely water views from many vantage points. Highly recommended.

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.

They have done a great job on this side of the lake thus far. Beautifully maintain ed, great for a run, walk, or a bike ride. Well shaded with some nice views of the lake.
