Review: Some good single track, although I found it hard to find my way around. I could only spend about an hour without getting bored.

Review: This was my first time riding here, and I should have heeded the warnings about riding here after a rainfall. I started out on the White trail and immediately made a left onto Orange. From there I understand where the warnings stem from. There were rivers running down the center of the trail. That was just the water, the trail was so overgrown with sticker bushes, my arms were shredded at the end. I made my way back up the slippery, steep and rocky climb to the same place I started on the White trail. My suggestion is to take White to Red. I didn't. I took the White to the Yellow trail. Which going down was AMAZING! once at the bottom though? Either take the road back up on Fiddler, or climb Yellow back up. I did the latter. FUN, FUN AND MORE FUN. Steep and fun. Once at the top, go left and take the Red trail which was another river trail. Once in there take to intersection of Red trail. If you go left, you end up at power lines . Turn around and take Red up really fun switchback climb and eventually end up on White. Take a left to go back to car. Summation....... LOVED IT! Must say it would have been awesome if not for sticker bushes and the amount of water. The blazes start off too far down trails, so a little confusing, so if not sure, go down trail 50 or so feet. Check it out on a dry day! Keep the rubber side down!!!!

Review: We started at the Pleasant Valley Road entrance (thanks JPO), which is about 3 miles up from Rt. 29. If you want to start at a higher elevation and ride down (then back up again to your car), this is the entrance to start from (conversely, if you want to ride up first, then ride back down, start at the Fiddler's Creek Road entrance). The white trail (Ridge Trail) was nice...little rocky, but nice, long downhills and uphills - it's about 2 miles one way. The orange trail (Copper Hill Trail) was overgrown, steep, very rocky, and has it's share of obstacles - parts of this trail are basically unrideable. The Creek Spur (one of the blue trails) connects Fiddler's Creek Road to the orange trail. This trail is very tough - good for hikers and equestrians - don't bother unless you feel like carrying your bike or breaking your neck. We did not have time to explore the other trails. Interesting note: There is a clearing close to the visitor's center (end of white trail) with a great southward view of the Delaware River, Trenton, and the giant landfill down by Tullytown - probably great for stargazing and photography.

Review: Steep, rocky trail with virtually no man made stunts (at least not where I rode). Be careful of the orange trail. At the top it says "Not suitable for horses" nuff said! Decents are long and can get extremely fast.

Review: Trail is very good. A lot of stuff won't over-extend a beginning rider, but still enough challenge for those who are more advanced. Lots of hills, so if you stay in shape in the off season the same way I do (D&R Canal Tow Path) than be prepared to remember why you have lower gears. Directions update: There is better parking located off of Pleasant Valley Road, about two miles up on the right. Follow the short gravel side street to a large parking area with multiple trailheads. Riding from this area is much easier and more enjoyable than the directions posted above.
