Tryon Park - Rochester NY 

Tryon Park is on one of the two Monroe County Parks that have been opened to a 18 month shared-se trail Pilot Program. There are 21 Parks in Monroe's county with 12,000 acres and until May 2011 it was illegal to ride a bike on trails. GROC and many supporters worked with County Parks Department and the Legislators during the Ellison Park master Plan update to demonstrate how shared-use trails can be integrated into the county parks system.

 

Tryon is a a great park that offers a wide variety of riding but is predominately expert trail system. It is not very y well suited for beginner riders. West bay Park is better geared for beginners and intermediate riders.

WNYMBA has been working hard for years to bring great single track to Western NY.

That's what it is all about. Miles and miles of narrow, dry, technical, all-natural singletrack. A beautiful 12-inch wide strip of dirt, rocks, logs and roots threading through the forests, fields, and hills of Western New York. But unlike a new front fork or a replacement derailleur, you can't just run down to the your local bike shop and pick up a new stretch of singletrack. No, there's only one path to singletrack. That is for us to organize and work with land managers to open trails to bicycles, (legally!) build new trails, and get together to celebrate and enjoy the results we achieve.
