Yellow Trail Loop Professional Review and Guide
"The Phillips Creek Trail System, located in the Phillips Creek State Forest, is designed for skiing, snowshoeing, and horseback riding. Snowshoers are welcome to use the trails, but are expected to stay out of the ski tracks. Phillips Creek Trail System actually involves three state forests: Palmers Pond, Phillips Creek, and Turnpike.
Together it comprises 11,098 acres of the West Almond Management Unit in Allegany County. Located just 4 miles from Alfred and 9 miles from the DEC Office of Lands and Forest at Belmont, the trails are frequently used by equestrians and hikers as well as cross-country skiers and snowshoers.Surface quality: Ungroomed, skier tracked."
