Sheep Meadow Bike Trail

With a difficulty level of beginner/intermediate, this 3.6 mile trail (one way) offers easy cruising on a forest road, with only a few small hills to add some spice.

Follow a truck trail north for .6 miles to the bridge over the Osgood River, then take the left on a horse trail.This will be a single track for .7 miles, rejoins the truck trail. A left turn rewards with a scenic wooden bridge that crosses Hays Brook at the 1.5 mile point. Trail ends at a picnic spot with 2 lean tos and a horse shelter.

If the rider stays on the truck trail throughout, the singletrack does not have to be taken, but this adds a .25 mile length to the ride.

Find the trailhead by turning north at the junction of NYS Rt. 30 & NYS Rt. 86 at Paul Smiths and keep track for 3.7 miles. There will be a DEC Sign for Hays Brook Assembly Area with a dirt road turnoff. Use the parking area .4 miles off highway, near a state gate on the left.
