“A very fun downhill on singletrack, exiting to an abandoned ski hill.”— Jon Sundquist
The Bova downhill starts on Ridge Run at the site of the newly rebuilt lean-to cabin. The singletrack starts just to the north side of the leanto and starts downhill right away. The grade increases as you bear left and then make a sharp right turn. Some large boulders here make some interesting alternate lines if you feel you are up to it. Watch out for the occasional muddy section here.
Soon the trail smoothes out but continues more steeply until it dumps you out at the top of old abandoned Bova ski hill. This ski hill was one of the original western New York ski hill, popular back in the 30's and 40's, but no longer has a lift.
