I tried some of this yesterday. Did just some up and back because here's my one complaint,there are no individual maps for each trail that I know of

Scout hike to get 15 miles, great for gaining distance and using a compass. Nice windy trails in forest with different scenery. Nice during foliage season!

Great trails perfect for mountain biking. But you really need a +size complete mountain bike to really enjoy it.

This is a nice place to ride but the problem is that there are almost no maps, nothing marked and it can get very confusing and you can easily get turned around in the forest. This is also not a "site seeing" hike so if you're into views or vistas this isn't the place for you but it is a nice place to trail run, or bike or ride a horse. Would be better if there were marked trails or a definitive map though. Just not easy to navigate here.

We've enjoyed these trails many times - always a new area to explore and lots of terrain to choose from.

This is more than just the trail(s) listed here. It is Stewart Forest, which has oodles of old roads, fire roads, and single track trails. Since no motor vehicles are allowed, it allows plenty of peace and quiet too. Nice to hike, but it's a big place. Mountain bikes are the way to go.
Traveling, you can stay at the Comfort Inn in Newburgh, and even rent bikes at Dark Horse cycles on Rt 17k.

You gotta go here!
