1.5 mile trail (one way)
3.7 miles north of the NYS Rt. 30 junction with NYS Rt. 86, the Hayes Brook area is marked with a DEC sign. Turn left onto the dirt road opposite, and 1.3 miles down there is a horse trail on the right.
This is singletrack with small hills. Head northwest through old plantations and a natural clearing to McColloms Rd. NYS Rt. 30 will reappear 1.9 miles down the road, on the right. Turning right and going 1.3 miles to the starting point will create a7 mile loop. For a beginner difficulty level, ride into Slush Pond from NYS Rt. 30 with a 2.1 mile route on a seasonal road.
