    Taconic Hereford 909 Trails

    909 Bikers
    I am curious about this park and rode the western section a few years ago remembering the Blue along the Ridge was a nice ride but there were a lot of double track logging roads as well... :-(

    Below is a list of Trails (taken off the Bikerag map)
    I am trying to determine which of these trails are jeep roads, which are double tack (excessively wide) and which are nice single track.

    Could you fill in the blanks and let me know which are jeep roads, etc.? Any description of any trail would be helpful as well...
    THANKS

    A-Fong's Way
    B-Snowmobile (? Double Track or Jeep Road ?)
    C-Mercury
    D-Mustang
    E-Tunnel
    F-Anthill
    G-Brockway > Jeep Road
    H-Green Acres
    I-BYK-HED (Bike Head? as in Motorhead?)
    I-Offshoot
    J- Bypass
    K-Whachamacallit
    L-Burn Trail
    M-Skid Trail
    N-Buck
    O-Camp
    P-Cop
    Q-Horseshoe
    R-Road > Jeep Road
    S-Outer Gut
    T-Getaway
    U- Pirate Creek
    V-Gut Loop
    W-Border Trail
    X-Tent
    Y-Connectors
    Pond Gut Trail > Jeep Road ??

    You've got the double tracks listed, some of the Sno-Mo is singletrack

    ST to doubletrack is about 5 to 1, with 20+ miles of ST

    There is an unmarked popular trail inside the Horseshoe -"Beaver"

    And the Skidder & Buck have merged to one singletrack, the trailheads are the same as "Buck". The next map will show the trail name as "Timbuktu"

    Also note the trail marked with blue discs you mention was probably "Bykhed" -there are about 5 other blue trails because DEC only uses 3 colored discs for now

    Motorized vehicles are only allowed on about 3 miles of road

    It's easy to link consecutive trails together with very little doubletrack, usually the start of the next trail is right across the road from the one you're finishing. 909 is one of the best designed riding destinations around here in that regard.
