    Any riding in Rockland County?

    I will be down that way for a class reunion. Would like to find a group ride or guide for 6/30. That is also my birthday! Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Harry

    There really isn't legit MTB riding in Rockland.

    This map pretty much shows the park system:
    County of Rockland, New York :: County Parks & Dog Runs

    Most of the parks are pretty small. The biggest parks in Rockland are to the East and West. To the east, along the Hudson you will find several parks that the Long Path passes through (and other hiking trails). You will also find a bike path along the river. To the west is Harriman and Bear Mtn State Park which have tons of trails (many ridable, many not-so-much). However, very few are designated as permitted for MTB use.

    So, if you want to ride legit I would suggest checking out some of the JORBA parks at www.JORBA.org | JORBA - You Dig? or check out a couple of options in Westchester County at WMBA. That is where you might also find out about group rides.

    What a sad area for bike access. Thousands of acres of public lands: DENIED!

    Not particularly "governed" though.
