Hammond Hill State Forest
The Hammond Hill State Forest Multiple Use Trail System has been designed to offer family-based recreation for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross-county skiing. A snowmobile trail and the Finger Lakes Hiking Trail also cross the forest. The 16 mile trail system is a cooperative effort between the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Lands and Forests, the Cayuga Nordic Ski Club, the Cayuga Nature Center, the Friends of Hammond Hill and the town of Dryden.
The trails are Hammond Hill are mainly doubletrack with some singletrack sprinkled in. Though not a lot of technical challenge, the big hills and seasoned forest make for fun trail riding. These multi-use trails are also open to equestrians. Mountain bikes are not allowed on snow-covered trails in Hammond Hill, and e-bikes are not allowed on any Region 7 NYS forest multi-use trails.
