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.

    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.

    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.
