Grew up hiking here and had no idea there was a singletrack network. It's definitely something of a well-kept secret and there isn't an enormous amount of singletrack, but what's there is impressive. Climbs and descents range from mildly bumpy to wildly technical including loose shale, traprock, rock gardens, and water crossings. Switchback descents are crazy. Portions of the marked trails are also fun and slightly more beginner friendly but other portions are totally unrideable; you can get to the summit on the unmarked singletrack though then hit a wild descent down.
Do your research, check out some maps, and tread lightly. High Mountain isn't at the level of Ramapo or Ringwood but it's worth a visit on its own merit or a tie in as part of a long multi park ride.
