Rider questions

Q: New to mountain biking in West Orange area. Can anyone help me with a route through the Eagle Rock Reservation? I found a few single tracks at the south west corner but seem to loose the trail after a mile or so.

    This place was really fun, with some good flow and tech. Had some nice little punchy climbs and some fast downhill sections. Also had some great features with some well built skinny's. This park connects to Cedar Grove which has some great flow as well. The rock gardens are awesome as well. Would defently come back again

    Fun, but really rocky! The kind of trail full suspension fat bikes were made for. The trail head is odly in the back of a baseball field but once you get past that it's all good. Technical climbs, a few flow sections, but one dicey area that could use some maintenance, it was on the side of the mountain and I was scares as hell I'd lose traction and slide down the hill. Some downed trees need to be cut and that one area flattened out, but overall a fun quiet place to ride.

    It was a fun trail. I'm too new to make it up the hills, but over fun.

    I rode Hilltop for the first time yesterday (4/14/16) and dug it for Jersey. This was the site of an old institution long gone and now turned into park/reservation so some remaining asphalt roads still exist. There is also a nice mix of single-track. Several of the single-tracks have nice flow and only some small rocks/roots. Other trails are more rock/root filled with some steep climbs. 11 miles total of potential riding. Good place for newbies and advanced technical riders as well.
