Trail Description
About this trail
8-10 miles of singletrack built over the past several years. Very well-designed, constructed and maintained by NORBA, the local mtb club. More background on Jungle Habitat's checkered past as a wild-life amusement park here, from the tourist attacked by lions to the 50 wild animals abandoned to nature by Warner Brothers when they closed the park

Review: Very challenging terrain. Rocky, steep, twisty, fun! Bring a first aid kit, I know I needed one...

Review: Fantastic trail system that keeps getting better. Town cycle and JORBA take good care of the single track and seem to be always adding new trail markers. If you're a beginner, print out a map from the JORBA site and choose the counter-clockwise direction of Animal Chute -> Warthog -> Otter Slide -> Tanks -> Cages -> Tiger Pen -> Fish -> Hippo -> Lower Chute loop. This could be the best way to enjoy Tanks -> Cages -> Tiger Pen -> Fish as it's mostly downhill once you get up Otter Slide. I heard Dump Truck Hill is great too, but haven't gotten to it yet. Overall, excellent way to spend a few hours and a place you will come back to again and again.

Review: Jungle Habitat is definitely the most unique in New Jersey. It has it all; from insane rock gardens to tight switchbacks and fast flowy single track. The trails at Jungle Habitat are overall pretty difficult, but can be done. The trails didn't get boring for me over the 6 hours I spent there. Fantastic system.

Review: I've been riding here for years and the trail work that JORBA and Town Cycle is tremendous. Checkout the new trail, Boulderdash, that now links Fish and Dump Truck. This trail is truly a work of art with amazing rock armouring that reflects many man hours of great engineering and physical exertion. Great job guys and thank you!

Review: This place is awesome. Very very technical. Good downhills. Can be very challenging. I recommend the otterslide and the baboon. also there is some awesome unmarked trails near the powerlines at the end of the baboon you should try. I also really like to bomb down the pipeline area to finish off my day.
Also the fish to the hippo is a good combo that is full of super tight single track

Review: One of the most interesting trails I've ridden. I went too early to go by the bike shop to get a map and it definitely would have helped. The first coiple trails i did definitely were better going back. Ivadvise riding away from gate on roads then heading back on the trails. They seemed to be oriented that way. Bery rocky but if youre going the right way you get some help from gravity. Definitely worth visiting.

Review: i may be prejudice because i'm on team town cycle but this is one of my favorite places to ride. its an odd combination of flowy singletrack and technical trail. you cant come here and leave the same. you always learn something new. my favorite trails used to be animal shute, warthog, and otterslide but now they all take lower positions because the newest trail, boon, is the most fun trail to ride just beacuse of the flow. no other trail compares to it.

Review: Amazing trails through an odd, abandoned wildlife park. JORBA and Town Cycle (West Milford), have done an amazing job here. Ride Rhino for the latest genius addition to this challenging but supremely satisfying small network of technical single track.
