Whether you’re looking for a nice walk with the dog, a short trail run, miles of winding mountain bike trails, or a place for cross-country skiing in the winter, the Clarkson trails have it all.
Beginning at the main entrance next to the water tower, the multipurpose trail quickly forks. Bearing right, the trail continues on the loop with a short side trail on the right leading to an observation deck with views of a swamp, home to a beaver hut and an osprey nest. Continuing on the trail, there is a short trail to the left which can be made into a one-mile loop, or continue on the full loop for a 1.7-mile trip.
This multipurpose trail is also used by the ROTC and has elements of an obstacle course along the trail.
5.6 additional miles of singletrack biking and hiking trails wind in and out of the main multipurpose trail. These trails range in difficulty from easy to advanced for mountain biking.
This trail system is owned by Clarkson University and maintained by Clarkson Outdoor Recreation. For more information, please contact:
Park in the commuter lot behind the Cheel Campus Center, across the road from the football and baseball fields.
