Review: Yellow trail is overgrown. The white trail is very easy flat gravel. The red trail is wide and a good long steady up and down with lots of Little Rocks. Blue trail is single track and has got some technical areas also has rocks. Has one section that is basically stairs out of boulders.

Review: Road today, agree with other posts trails stay very wet for at least a few days after even minimal rain. Frankly, I think these trails have a lot of potential, great elevation change and steep grade for this area- also nice combo of flow sections and rocky switchbacks (particularly C in my ride today). But it is not well maintained, major places rocks and built up areas are lose and the whole place is over grown with pricker bushes. Maybe it's just the start of the season? This is my first season rising East, but if we got some guys in the to clean it up- HUGE POTENTIAL. Look forward to riding again on a nice dry day!

Review: Good system with lots of sustained climbing and Descents which can be hard to come by in central west Jersey. Red and orange trails off sides of mountain can get technical and are mostly out and backs. White trail is non tech but is flowy with nice loamy dirt. Can also link up some trails in Washington Crossing park for longer ride.

Review: Good challenge, has rocks, roots and elevation. Does not drain quickly after rain so be prepared to wash your bike afterwards.....if your like me it needed to be washed anyway!

Review: This is a good place for a short ride. There is a lot of climbing, which I like for a change of pace. The orange trail is rocky and has a steep decent and climb. Overall, it is a good ride.

Review: The park is open Su,Mo,Tue i think due to deer management so check before you ride. I went from Washington's Crossing Park to Baldpate Mountain. Stick to the red trail. Blue trail had a lot of fallen trees. Ended the ride at the car park on Pleasant Valley road. Took the red trail back and it was good. I will do it again.

Similar Trail: Washington's Crossing from Nature center.

Review: It was interesting. I started out taking the white ridge trail pretty much to its end. This was the easiest trail I encountered. Some large ish rocks kicked me around but it was mostly a doubletrack trail that was easy cruising. Then I did a loop on the red trail which was at first slightly overgrown then a steep decent on loose construction rock and then into a steep climb on equally unstable surface with some larger rocks and roots to boost over. Then I found the top of the blue trail. As a new mtb rider this trail was impossible for me. The rocks were huge and numerous and it was very steep. So I walked out of there after a few hundred feet. I'm not sure if it is passable but if it is it takes a very good rider. Then I found some offshoot of the white trail which was nearly overgrown but doable. This trail was really steep with very narrow singletrack and a lot of switch backs. Eventually it put me out in pleasant valley road. I decided to bike back on the road because I couldn't face climbing the 1.5 mile decent if just come down. Once back at the parking area I went out for a loop on the orange trail which turned out to be a little too crazy for me. The decent was pretty crazy with it being really steep on very loose rock then the climb back to the ridge trail was really steep with tons of downed trees and loose rock. Eventually I had to walk it and even that was tough. Overall it was a fun time with a lot of decent and a lot of steep climbs. I made it by with a hardtail bike but I but a full suspension with a more aggressive pair of tires would help on the loose decents. I'll be back and would recommend it to adventurous beginners to probably some advanced riders as well.
