Mountain Biking Brendan T. Byrne / Lebanon State Park

****   Add a review
#64 of 111 mountain bike trails in New Jersey
#8,202 in the world

Recommended route: Mt. Misery trail (although there is no Mt.) By far the best trail, but nothing for any adrenaline junkies unless we like distance riding- you can cover the 30 mi. in 4-5 hrs if you bust you butt.
The trails are pretty flat, nice for a quick fix. You'll need some bug spray because those flies don't give up. There are carnivorous plants which are pretty cool and some of the swamps are pretty crazy, but pine trees as far as the eye can see.There are some (stress some) cool things but you have to look for them.

    Pond was spilling out onto fire road probably due to the torrential thunder storm a couple of days ago. A few sections were overgrown, had to do multiple tick checks when we got to each of the clearings on the roadways. A section of the trail was closed off and extensively overgrown to the point it was impassable.

    This trail system has potential, but as of now its not great. Being south jersey it is sandy, very sandy. There is only a little bit of single track, while most of it is straight fire roads. The single track sections are completely overgrown. It was so bad in sections I had to get off the bike and walk through. Go to Wharton state forest or Alliare.

    Decent trails here, as NJ goes. Very flat, of course. I park at headquarters and ride the red trail to Pakim Pond, then pick up the Mt. Misery Trail. It's about a 15-mile loop. (Not sure why this site says 30 miles.) It's mostly in pine forest, with some sandy areas, though not a ton, and one section crossing bogs on elevated berms. Mt. Misery is kind of a joke, since there's no mountain. You'll probably be by yourself the whole ride. I often see no one the entire time. I like the seclusion, though it can be a problem: I've busted my derailleur TWICE on this trail when sticks went through them, and once had to walk from a remote section. Don't ride in warm months or you'll get ticks and chiggers galore.
