    Complete review of Swain, http://diamondbackbuddy209.pinkbike.com/blog/Gravity-East-Series-4-Swain-Resort-Preview.html and the Track "WE" chose and designed with Swain is going to be something Swain riders have not raced ever before.


    Stop #4 on the Gravity East Series will be heading to the Allegany Foothills of Western New York at Swain Resort. The quaint town of Swain has been developing and expanding it's resort every year. Swain began hosting lift-accessed mountain biking just a few years ago and last year developed a WNYMA sanctioned motocross track right on the hillside. On the weekend of August 25-26th, Gravity East riders will tackle a rocky, rooty, steep, fast, off-cambered race course called Sledgehammer.

    Free camping is available onsite with contained fires permitted, restrooms will be open 24 hours, the Shawmut Grille will be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with a movie night on a 90" screen Saturday night!!

    Swain's slope side bar & grill, The Shawmut Grille, opens during operating weekends and events serving up delicious burgers, wraps, wings, salads, and refreshing adult beverages. The outdoor deck is open with great views of the surrounding trails.

    Mountain bike trails range from easy to extremely difficult, including various North Shore terrain features. Scenic lift rides, for those who simply wish to ride the lift, are also available during the lift-accessed mountain biking schedule (and Gravity East).

    Swain Resort is a family-friendly downhill ski area, uniquely located on over 250 acres, situated in the mountains of Allegany County in western NY, that has been in continuous operation for 65 years. Current management took over operations in August of 2009 with aspirations of transforming the ski area into a four-season resort by introducing events like motocross, downhill mountain biking and an annual sportsmen’s festival.
