The Sprain is on the border of Yonkers and Greenburgh, squeezed between the NYS Thruway on the West and the Sprain Brook Parkway on the East.
The park has terrain that will suit the beginner to the advanced rider. It is an ideal park for Single speed bikes as the elevations are minimal. That’s not to say, there isn’t climbs…there are. Some of the most technical riding in Westchester resides in the park thanks to numerous tree falls, rock formations and tight trail layout.

Get off at the Tuckahoe Station and follow Tuckahoe Road West to East Grassy Sprain Road and make a right. Ride parallel to the highway approximately 2-3 miles and then turn left on Jackson Ave. Go about a quarter mile, and the park entrance is on your left.
Take the Sprain Brook Parkway to the Jackson Ave Exit. Follow Jackson Ave West for about a quarter mile, and the park entrance is on your left. Follow the entrance round up to the pool area.
Just past the entrance to the pool there is a huge parking lot. There are trail heads at the North-East & South-West corners of the lot that are marked with county signs.
