Trail Description
About this trail
The most difficult trail my son and I have done to date in New Jersey.
Very rocky. Significant up and downs. Poorly marked (attempt to follow
the red markers which we assume were once white markers). Do not panic
when you get lost (highly likely). Bring a compass, cell phone, plenty
of fluids, and go to town. Very lightly used...in three hours, we saw only one
other rider. Lots of obstacles for those with technical skills. If you
are an intermediate rider or better and looking for your next challenge,
this is the place. Good luck.

Review: Hilly, rocks, and streams. Bad markings. Yes got lost, walked up rocky steep inclines. Took the white trail. After playing cyclecross umph times, found some nice single track, but I think that's how I got lost. Ended up going to South side, out of the wood and took pavement 10 miles back. With a group and they preferred to go around instead of back over. Thus was not a fun day. 6 mile, Lewis Park, is my skill level. 15% for a long rocky, wet climb was too much for me this day.

Review: This park is certainly tough on the legs with the difficult rocky climbs. This is not a place for intermediate riders as they may find themselves walking their bike through the more difficult sections. Nothing against this place but I definitely don't agree with the #1 MTB park in NJ since your average rider would struggle to conquer it.

Review: Great place to do some technical riding. Most of the trails have significant ups and downs. Bring your skills and agility. Make sure to get a map or better of an app called Maprika otherwise it's very easy to get lost. You have to do some of the unblazed trail don't just go on the marked trails. Most popular trails here are lumpy bumpy and Rollie Pollie.

Review: This park is great! Very challenging,ridiculous uphills, crazy intense downhills, and a little of everything in between. You must bring a detailed map or you will get lost, no doubt. And lots of water. Be prepared to come back several times to explore everything this park has to offer. Also connects to deer park and stephens park. Never ending fun awaits. Message me, trailmanvin , if you ever want a nice tour or just want to ride. I live on cranberry lake now, always fun to ride with great people!

Review: Today, I called he trail wet. It was a little more wet in the usual places, with a few other wet spots. But over all dry.

Review: Absolutely the best place in NJ. Need to dig deep to climb these trails but totally worth it.

Review: Great place to ride. White trail starts out as mostly doubletrack with crazy climbs, but turns into singletrack. The green trail doesn't drain too well, but (in my opinion) the best trail in the park, called Lumpy Bumpy, is near the green trail and it is necessary to ride the green trail to get to Lumpy Bumpy. Most of the fun stuff, including Lumpy Bumpy, are all unmarked, so be ready to spend a lot of time at the park! The east side of the park is very rocky and steep, while the west side is pretty smooth comparably. Overall a great ride, you just need to dig deep.

Review: The Sussex Branch Trail runs through the park, so you have a 'lifeline' to fall back on, of which you can explore from. Agreeably, the trails in this park are often poorly marked, especially the 'unblazed' trails near the Red loop. Got lost with a lesser-experienced friend once and felt really bad I dragged her through such an experience. Other than that though, the trails are really fun, and the scenery along the Sussex Branch Trail is fantastic - especially the waterfall near Waterloo road. Be ready to share the main trail with horseback riders, but on the singletracks you'll most likely be alone. Just bring a trail map and be ready to navigate, and you'll have fun here. Something for all skill levels for sure. * Review edited 4/3/2012
