Ninham Mountain MUA - Carmel, NY Putnam County

"The Ninham Multiple Use area is bisected by the Gypsy Trail Road, off Route 301. To the west, two north-south main dirt fire roads begin from the parking area. The fire roads pass through old fields, deciduous wood, and by a small pond. Head either north or south on the fire roads and return the way you came for an easier ride. A few of the trails near the parking area are suitable for intermediate and beginner mountain bikers. However, most of singletrack side spurs are technically challenging and geared for the more experienced intermediate and advanced rider who enjoy lots of rocks, roots, and elevation." --bikekinetix.com
