Review: New to the sport but not to riding. Perfect spot for someone with intermediate skills to grow. Lot's of work on a hardtail through thick rooted sections but I impressed myself a few times. Also stepped off and walked a few spots. One tree has fallen into a foot bridge that can be walked but not ridden. I stayed away from that side of the trails. Been pretty steady this summer with afternoon storms but the conditions were good. Could spend hours dissecting each section of trail.

Review: Just rode here yesterday as part of the D&Q Summer Sizzler Race (and with 100 degree temps it was a sizzler!) Located at the Rowan University campus in Sewell. The race trail was spec'ed at 5.5m per lap which, given the small size of the area, probably comprised 90% of the available singletrack. Trails were in excellent condition and flow fairly well. There are some short punchy climbs which make for a good ride, especially at speed. Great place for novice riders to learn and practice clearing small obstacles or for advanced riders to really push the pace into some fairly tight corners. Not a destination, per se, but if you're in the area this is nice alternative to the Camden County College trails.

Review: This is a windy and rooty trail that follows a large 9 mile loop all the way around. There are some sections on the inside where shortcuts can be taken. There are some small jumps and a couple tall bridge crossings, as well as several short but steep climbs and descents in one of the sections. Overall a fairly enjoyable ride, as long as you don't mind going over a bunch of roots for half of the ride.

Review: I am a beginner, working out at CCC. Gave this trail a try. It was difficult to find the Trail Head, I kinda popped into what looked like a auto drive and found the trail.

Good climbs, challenging for me as a beginner. Tough because the climbs were pretty frequent at times, with little to no way to gain momentum. In short, you need to know your gears well to pull yourself up the hills, a skill I clearly lack.

There was another side by the creek that was actually really fun / less challenging for me.

And yes, definitely lots of roots.

I would say this is a little overwhelming for a newb. If you aren't comfortable with gears, and getting into the right gear before you need to on a steep climb, then this could be frustrating for you. Better to check out CCC and work on those hills.

Review: Did the GCC trails today. Glad to say they are back to normal, and all the trees that were down are all out of the way, after last years terrible storm. Didn't think they were ever going to be reopening these trails after I saw the devastation from last years storm, there were so many trees down, and right across the trails. Kudos to all of those who helped clear all the trees from the trails.

Review: My son and I took to the trail and had a great time. The leaves do make some spots a little difficult to see this time of year (November) but it was a nice beginner/intermediate trail. There are plenty of side trails to get some better roots or hills but still reasonable for us since we are new to the sport.

Note, watch for some folks walking their dogs on the trails

Review: Some nice sections... Lots of down trees I'm guessing from the storms we had this summer. Some areas clear, many still covered. Looks like bull dozers are clearing sections? Not sure what's up here... Pretty noisy since it is up against RT 55 also.

Review: First time here. As others mentioned, lots of roots, and some trees blocking a few sections of trail.

Nice mix of really twisty sections and longer straights. A few nice downhills. Some good climbs for a workout.

Like nopardaid mentions below in his review, the teeter-totter feature is finicky. My first time on one. Worked the first three times I went over it, fourth time I ate it hard when the edge of the teeter section got caught under the approach ramp.

Some sections of trail are hard to identify.
