Trail Description
About this trail
The Camden County College trails seem to be geared towards beginners and intermediate riders, although the newer trails are a bit more challenging. The trails follow a gradual hill down from the college to Rt 42, and runs along a hillside near Rt 42. Although these trails aren't the most challenging, they are fun to ride, and are a good way to get a short ride in after work. The trails are blazed with colored arrows, helping to keep to a specific route, but it's easy to connect any of the trails. These trails are used by various people, so watch out for runners, dirt bikes, and walkers.

Review: Thinking about racing the MASS Series Challenger CX Mountain Bike Race? Here's a quick overview of the trails you'd be racing on. Camden County College mountain biking trails are located in Blackwood New Jersey. The entrance to the Glouster County Park where the trailhead is is on the right just past the college on peter cheeseman road. Park in Lot Number 7. The trailhead is right there. We think these beginner trails are a lot of fun, and are really well maintained. If it's your first time here, it'll be a little tough to navigate, but there are only about 8 to 10 miles of trail, so getting lost a little should be part of the fun. These trails will set off with a downward flow straight out to the first road, which you cross to find more loops. Be sure to take the wider path in deeper to find even more fun past the celltower. Here you will find yet another - chimney off to the side of the trail which is appropriately named - the Chimney trail. Keep going and you'll cross a cement bridge up into a newer section called molly's run. Don't miss these two sections before you head back down and up into the main part of the trail system. If you're on the right track back, you'll find a great small drop off, and closer to the lot you'll find yourself flying down a chute and launching into a small jump spot. There's more, but we'll let you find it all on your own. These trails are very sandy, so rain isn't really an issue here. If you find yourself in South Jersey, and want a short fun ride- check out Camden County College Trails.

Review: This place packs in as much singletrack in a relatively small area as any place I've ridden. There must be about 10 miles of trail, the majority of which seem to crisscross or run adjacent to each other. The trails are very xc oriented with very little in the way of elevation change. There are a handful of man made features but it's pretty straightforward and very beginner friendly. The trails drain very well.

Review: Camden County College, or CCC, is a top rated place to MTB ride in southern New Jersey. It's well located, about 10 minutes from the Walt Whitman Bridge or from I-295, and adjacent to the RT 42 freeway. The trails are VERY well maintained, and great for riders of all ability levels. The park has a small footprint, but has over 10 miles of trials.

Though it is easy to get turned around in the park, you are never more than a few hundred yards from a road. You can hear traffic, and you can also see breaks in the tree lines, the college's campus, and a large radio tower for visual landmarks. Having a local ride with you a few times is the best way to learn this park as the trials are very close together.

The park is favorite to locals as it drains water VERY well and is one of the few places to ride that rarely get's muddy. There are a few features like elevated crossings, log overs, and short punchy climbs, but the park is known for it's fast flowy turns.

Please keep in mind the CCC is private property and is owned by the college. Please be respectful, do not ride on grass or on the athletic fields. Most riders meet in the "Gloucester Township Park" in Lot #7. There are regular rides on Monday nights (usually around 6pm, bring 2 lights), and a beginners ride on Saturday mornings. There is facebook page (search for "Camden County Riders") to ask questions, post pictures, or meet up with friends.

CCC is also the home of the "Challenger Mountain Bike Race" www.challengermtb.com since 2017. The race draws well over 350 racers from 7 states, and is growing each year.

Review: A great trail for beginners to work on riding singletrack. The distance to ride here is well over 8 miles without repeating trails, and there are so many different trails to choose from that all connect back to the main road. Some obstacles here and there, but the majority of the trail system is pretty flat and non technical.

Review: I don't like the word beginner. I prefer the word introductory to describe this park. Lots of nice twisty singletrack to get some speed up in. Perfect to bring the kids, significant other or the guy who has a bike next door hanging in his garage but he hasn't rode for 10 years. Lots of criss-crossing so I would recommend running a Geo Tracker just so you know where you are but the park is contained by roads so it's impossible to get lost. There was a good crowd on Sunday morning riding so keep your head up

Review: Good for all skill levels . Beginners can have a great time and learn. Skilled riders can also have fun due to natural obstacles / and grade changes. You just gotta get to know the place so you cant map a riding path out to enjoy it at your pace. Great after rain drys out faster then everywhere else

Review: Best trails in South Jersey. Unlike all the other trails I've seen here, these are designed more for MTB than any around. Good flow in most places and a lot of fun. Criss-crossing everywhere, but just keep on the trail it looks like you should be on and you'll have a blast. Way more than 4 miles here, but I would say that most of the trails are beginner level.
