Shindagin Hollow State Forest
Shindagin Hollow State Forest covers 5,266 acres of land in the town of Caroline in southern Tompkins County. Its large size and good access from public roads make this a great forest to enjoy activities such as mountain biking, hunting, hiking, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, nature viewing, and camping.
The trails are designated as “primary use mountain biking”, so you will find bike-specific features on these rolling, rooty trails. Cycle-CNY is the official trail stewards for Shindagin Hollow, maintaining the trails and organizing advocacy efforts. This AANR partnership with the NYS DEC has been strong since 2005. Yellow and Red trails dry out much faster than the more challenging Blue trails.
