    Where to Ride (Paul Smith's College)

    Paul Smith's is a possible college choice of mine. I ride XC/AM. I'm looking for any information on nearby trails, websites, etc... What school I choose greatly depends on access to trials. Will have a car.

    Decent stuff up that way.

    If you're into DH, obviously, Whiteface has a big scene. Check out Downhill Mike: Whiteface Mountain Bike Park - Home.

    If you want more XC, I'd recommend the Barkeater Maps: Home | Barkeater Trails Alliance Best Adirondack Mountain Bike Trails

    Closer to the campus, there's some stuff near Fish Creek Pond campground. Here's a couple of TRs I did on my blog: Otter Creek Trail. Floodwood Loop. I also did the Deer Pond Loop, but didn't do a report.

    The best resource for trails around there (and there are a pretty good amount) is the DEC website (download the Google Earth Map of MTB trails). A lot of the the stuff is snowmobile trail and old work road (may not be the most ridable trails in the world), but they are at least fun to explore, and they are definitely adventurous. I'm going to do a little more exploring this summer (my parents' camp is right near there)
