#66 of 112 mountain bike trails in New Jersey

Forked River Mountain. Start at top of hill. Head up north trail for .15 miles. Bear left onto Jones RD. Double track dirt road. Go exactly 1.4m on Jones Rd. turn left/south onto single track trail. It bend around and start heading back east toward mountain. Follow trail approximately 3 miles back to mountain. Trails not marked so bring gps. Well worth it for beginner/intermediate riders. Alot of roots and logs/ twists and turns for more intermediate riders. Most of single track is well packed.Lots of good overlooks at top of mountain. Worth trip for MTBers in southern Monmouth, eastern Burlington counties, and all of Ocean county.

    Trail is fun, but hard to get to. NJ Conversation just bought 4,000 acres right next "mountains". Candace McKee Ashmun Preserve. They are currently trying to buy the hills(FR Mountains). Trying to get more people out there to bring awaresness to importance of Preservation. It is Worth the trip. Some of the fastest and most technical trails in the area.
