Trail Description
About this trail
8-10 miles of singletrack built over the past several years. Very well-designed, constructed and maintained by NORBA, the local mtb club. More background on Jungle Habitat's checkered past as a wild-life amusement park here, from the tourist attacked by lions to the 50 wild animals abandoned to nature by Warner Brothers when they closed the park

Review: A gem of place for singletrack. Not only does it feature rocky climbs and descents, but has nice boulder climbs and hop-overs, as well. I love riding here on my steel singlespeed hardtail, but after 3 hours, my lower back feels it. Some sections have narrow-spaced trees so don't fly too fast.

Review: If you're looking a tough and challenging trails to try out, this is the place. Very challenging trails here, not for the beginner riders at all.

Review: Rode here 11-8-15. Lots of leave covered rocks, which is normal for this time of the year, a few flowing sections but not enough to make the 1.5 hr drive worth the trip.
I don't think we will be riding here again.
Very technical, which was good but just not that enjoyable to ride. Not unlike Chimney Rock, NJ, just not as much fun.

Review: For its location it wasn't bad very rocky but for the most part doable as long as you keep momentum. A group of us went this Sunday that just passed and got to do 50% of Wharthog do to a state race they had set up and also got to do Animal Shute to Lower Chute which to me can be a great run and practice this last run hast it all rocks, hilly, fast pace, berms even little stream crossing will be coming back soon with a bigger group.

Review: Fantastic trail system that keeps getting better. Town cycle and JORBA take good care of the single track and seem to be always adding new trail markers. If you're a beginner, print out a map from the JORBA site and choose the counter-clockwise direction of Animal Chute -> Warthog -> Otter Slide -> Tanks -> Cages -> Tiger Pen -> Fish -> Hippo -> Lower Chute loop. This could be the best way to enjoy Tanks -> Cages -> Tiger Pen -> Fish as it's mostly downhill once you get up Otter Slide. I heard Dump Truck Hill is great too, but haven't gotten to it yet. Overall, excellent way to spend a few hours and a place you will come back to again and again.
