Old Croton Aqueduct If you are looking for a more unique bike ride experience, Old Croton Aqueduct is the spot for you. An off-roading adventure, the diverse trail features both paved and unpaved terrain with paths in both wooded areas as well as suburban. This trail can be as challenging or smooth as you make it- depending on which path you dare to take.

Sprain Ridge Mountain Sprain Ridge Mountain bike trails are very well-suited for more advanced riders. The expert trails are riddled with steep drops, stream crossings, and plenty of elevation and terrain changes. With all of this action, you are sure to work up an appetite, so pack some good eats and take advantage of the picnic grounds.
