Round Top Trail Network

The Round Top Trail Network, or Roundtopia, consists of over 20 miles of mountain bike trails located on private land aimed at serving the local community. The interconnected network can be accessed by the public at a number of locations including: Riedlbauer’s Resort, Glen Falls House, Winter Clove Inn, Crystal Brook Resort and Mountain Brauhaus. The trails are a nice mix of single-track, double-track, and fire roads that are groomed for fat biking in the winter months.

Glen Falls House provides access to the easiest terrain in the Round Top area: Warpath Loop and Bridal Veil. There are three waterfalls on this property: Glen Falls, Bridal Veil and the Ice Box. The Glen Falls trails are just across the road (and stream) from Riedlbauer's and accessible by crossing a 60 foot wooden bridge with miniature chainsaw-carved bears on its railings. The Glen Falls House also has a separate tavern.

Follow the Ale Trail towards Winter Clove and you will pass another beautiful trail-side waterfall, owned by Crystal Brook Resort. If you turn onto Pilsner Pass, you will wind up at the Mountain Brauhaus an authentic German Brauhaus featuring an outdoor deck.

The Winter Clove trails have two sections: The lower section features a fish pond, a beautiful waterfall, and a covered bridge. The upper section has some nice climbs such as the Lower Moonshine Ridge Trail and Switchback Hill.

Riedlbauer's has one of the main parking area's of the trail network and hosts many events such as the RTMBA Enduro Fundraiser and the New York State Mountain Bike State Championships in September. While you're here, enjoy a drink at Nussy's Bier Garten.

Crystal Brook Resort and Brauhaus is another location to start your adventure on the Roundtopia Trails.

Roundtopia also can be the base camp for some bigger excursions such as: Dutcher's Notch and Mountain House Rd. which are 2,000 feet above the Round Top trails.

Trails not to be missed: The Waterfall Trail, The Grand Canyon Trail, Hematoma
