Tweed Mountain

Anyone familiar with the trail riding up at Tweed Mountain in Rockland County, New York?

I think its Rockland, possible Orange County.

Supposedly has good trails but I've never been there.

You talkin about the road Tweed that runs out of Piermont? That cuts through Clausland but is not legal. Ride the tweed road hill instead that will get your HR up!

Never heard of it.

I may be wrong but I doubt it's in Rockland...by what town?

Tweed is also known as the Bluefields Rifle Range. Situated on top pf Clausland mountain in the Nyack/Orangeburg, NY area. This base, established in 1910, would replace the old facility located on long island. Camp Bluefields, in Blauvelt, Rockland County, was a former New York National Guard Rifle Range used as POW Camp in WWI. The camp's training facility prepared soldiers for embarkation to Europe. The remains of the Tweed Military Installation are now part of Tamarack County Park. Built some time around World War I the base served as a firing range complete with underground tunnels. The long, concrete tunnels were built to provide safe passage from one rifle range to another.

I've ridden there with Tim (tlnj) a couple times. It's technically illegal as mentioned, though I never saw any hikers.

Yeah that's the Tweed Mountain I'm referring too. Illegal? Why is it illegal?
What I'd be more worried bout is gettin caught there at dusk into darkness and running into skin heads...daylight they hide at least.

Doesn't Rockland county pretty much have a county ban on riding?

It's such a shame. Every time i'm driving through up from 287 to 87 North i can't help but ogle the amazing landscape and think how that entire area could be a mecca of awesome riding. So many small hills with awesome open rock tops.

Guttenburg trail runs and has 2 young kids, so he doesn't mountain bike as much these days. Neither do I but I still hang out on this board for some reason. We did a trail run in Harriman the weekend before last and he split his shin clean open on a rock -- not pretty.

The riding I've done in Clauseland isn't much to fret. I know there's more out there to ride that I haven't seen -- and Glen of Piermont Bikes can maybe show you -- but outside of it being something new, don't sweat it.
