This is where information about Glacier Ridge lives.
Most people’s favorite trail on Long Island. A flowy trail for sure and SS friendly. The main loop is about 4 miles but sections of it are tight and there’s some elevation changes that may be too much for a beginner.
There’s just over 9.5 miles of diamonds, both single and double. There is constant up and down flow which is great for plenty of fun when riding or trying to increase your time for a good workout. There’s some small logs to roll over, some rocks from small to large rollers to ride over, and plenty of tight twisty flow turns. There’s some moguls as well. Watch your bars and keep your lines clean. If not you’re going to be sorry as you’ll get banged up from some trees. Watch out for the occasional stump, rock, or box turtle(don’t harm em) to catch a pedal on.
The trail is setup like none other. Everything loops around and you can do a diamond two or three times if you want without having to do another diamond. You can ride this trail with a few inches of snow on the ground as well.
Total mileage is about 13.5. When you’re on Long Island and are in shape this trail flows like no other. Can also connect to Overton trail via Hunter’s Path for a double header. Come get some, you won’t be disappointed!
