Lots of awesome single track. A local bike shop and JORBA work very hard a few times a week maintaining the trails. Very few climbs but super fast. Avoid this place after a lot of rain unless you like mud.

Review: First time here and I'm already hooked !! This place has it all, fast singletracks, obstacles, a few steep hills, jumps and wooden bridges. Just like in past reviews, there is one thing wrong..... An hour drive to get there. I'll definately be back !!

Review: Definitly one of the best trails in central jersey. I usually start on the blue trail, connect to red, then take red, orange, blue back. That combo is 15 miles. Nice twisties, not too many roots, a smal jump or two. Really great xc single track with some nice downhill and short uphill climbs. This is my go to trail.

Review: To those that created and maintain this trail, thank you!! Great switchbacks, flow, scenery, and challenge options. I wouldn't change a thing about this trail, and it was worth every bit of gas for the hour drive.

Review: One of the best mountain bike trails in the state. This place is a playground for bikes! No need for a full-squish, hardtails rule here. Very little elevation change but there are some pretty fast descents on the Red and White trail. Start at Canal Rd and ride blue, to red, to orange and back. Lots of flowing and twisty singletrack and some obstacles to play on. All skill levels will have a great time especially first timers. Don't go after a rain, this place stays wet for weeks.

Review: One of my favorite rides. Fixed bridges are awesome. A few down trees made some dangerous low bridge situations. Most can't make it under. Trail has some deep puddles .

Review: This place is awesome, tight and flowy singletrack. Pretty hard to get lost. The jumps, bridges, and rollovers add a nice change of pace. Some small hills, but very fast. The terrain is smooth with some roots and no rocks. The scenery is very pretty. Some spots of the trial is very loose, which make the turn slippery.

Similar Trail: None, very unique

Review: Really fun single track. Rode the Blue trail out and back in about 50 minutes. mostly flat but some nice features and great mix of scenery. Loved the bridges. One bit of warning...in dry conditions, the beginning of the blue trail is very loosely packed dirt. So watch your speed taking the winding turns on this section so you don't have your wheels slide out from under you and take a little spill like I did today!

Review: Nice fast flowy trail. Nothing too crazy here, almost flat, so don't afraid if you're a beginner. Many bridges, some trees to roll over... Great trail system.

Review: this place is the definition of cross country mountain biking. These trails a very well maintained and include obstacles such as logovers and boardwalks.
The orange trail is made up of all tight and windy switch backs.
also this place is muddy mess after a rain so bring an extra pair of clothes for ur car

Review: Enjoyed about 10 miles on this trail today. The trail surface itself has few superiors. Its mostly smooth, hardpack dirt singletrack with enough roots and obstacles interspersed to keep it interesting. There's not enough flow, or good sight lines to get much speed on most of the portions I rode. I hear parts of the red trail are more rewarding in that regard. There's enough elevation change to get a workout but nothing too terribly intimidating. I only dropped to the smallest ring three times, most climbs were in the middle ring, and I was rarely out of breath. Nice little trail. I rate it a blue for the man-made features that push your skill limits, including the very narrow bridges. I give it a 3/5 because there's not much variety out here.

Review: Really fun trail, clay is nice and gummy, i went right after it rained so it was a bit slippy and sloppy in some areas especially on the roots. On a nice dry day this trail is probably real fast. The bridges are tricky but a nice challenge an change of pace. Add it to your bucket list!

Review: Sweet singetrack! Bridges everywhere. Can be quite slick after a rain. Trail is clay which tends to stay wet. Great flow with nice elevation change which is spread over the length of the trail. Quite a bit of roots but not overly technical.

Review: Really awesome switchbacks that are fun to ride. Roots are abundant in some areas. 2 stream crossings (deep if it rained the night before) a few muddy puddles. It's an out and back -- but definitely a fun trail to ride. Few log stacks to practice your balancing skills, 1 log skinny on the side of the trail -- if you want to challenge yourself. 5 slat bridges. Bike is shared to hikers and equestrians, so take heed!

Review: Probably my favorite ride in NJ, just wish I lived closer! Lots to keep you challenged, but very little is unridable.
