Just off U.S. Highway 44, near the Connecticut Border. This terrain is rolling, with moderate climbs and descents on dirt roads, and some shorter, steeper climbs on the trails. Watch for minor obstructions (like small tree stumps) on the single-track trails, an occasional vehicle or horseback rider on the dirt roads, and hikers on the trails. As always, follow the advice of equestrians when passing them, and announce your presence to hikers.

Many, if not all, of the hiking trails at George Washington Management Area are open to bikes. The only limiting factor being the individual bikers ability and tolerance for sections that may approach unrideability in certain weather conditions. The dirt roads are dirt roads, just like dire roads everywhere. The trails are rocky and tight. Many are part of the three loops of the Walkabout Trail but there are many others in the area. There are some short steep sections but the main challenge is rocks and some boggy areas that can suck a front wheel in above the axle. If you are willing to portage those sections the effort will prove worth your while. George Washington Management Area is a terrific place to ride and who knows, you may learn a trick or two.
