Ferncliff Forest -
Ferncliff Forest is an old-growth forest of about 200 acres in the northwest corner of Rhinebeck, NY. Terrain consists of quick descents, technical singletrack and trail features including a log ride, jumps and drop-offs. There is approximately an hour and half or riding, with a good amount of climbing in the northern section of the forest. Hunting is not allowed, making Ferncliff is a great late season riding spot. A new Fire Tower is scheduled to be installed in the spring of 2007.
