MTA Stewart Bufferlands - Mountain Bike Trail Review with Map and Pictures
Preliminary Review - 1 short visit
HUNTING SEASON!! October 1st Till ??? - Closed to ALL OTHER USERS.
Directions - From CT, take 84 through Newburgh, exit 5, right at exit, bear right on bracken, right on 17 for just about 75 feet!! Take an immediate right on Baron, park before gate.
Update from Rob - thanks for the info, we'll go back and find the real trails!!
"The website is awesome but I need to let you know that the review of Stewart is really weak. I've never met anyone who doesn't love that place after riding there... there's tons of great singletrack. The reviewer did not see most of good trails. The map is evidence of that. You won't see any quads on the singletrack (they can't fit), and any dirt bikes stay away from the best sinlgletrack. There is a parking lot on 207, that would be the place to start. There are two events coming up at Stewart, a 12 hour race and a 40 MILE race! (2 laps). I think that you should remove the review so that MTBers aren't discouraged from going there to race or especially just to ride. The map, in particular, should be taken off. I'm not trying to be overly critical, I just want to give you a heads up. "
Description - Just one visit here so we may have missed the good stuff it indeed exists. The trails we followed were slightly abandoned, rutted, loose, and littered with mud holes and steep hike a bikes (uphill).. For this place being closed to motor vehicles there sure are lots of quads and Mxers tearing it up.. We looked for other trails but every other trailhead we passed was ATV buff doubletrack..
So is there really good riding here, or just high mileage??
At first glance, this place is similar to Trail of tears without the rolling flow, add mudd holes, roots and west nile virus. Highlight of my day was getting back to the car so we could go ride ninham..
||Total Miles: Lots and lots of miles
Elevation Change Feet - Practically zero, but lots of short steep ups.
