Trail Description
About this trail
I have been riding serious for over 10 years. I am 28 years old, my career as a personal trainer pushes me further to appreciate mountain biking. I have been to a decent amount of trails, including MOAB out west, and the famous Crested Butte, Colorado. I live very local to the Skylands Manor. I love it here in New Jersey. I know some other good riding not far, in New York. Ringwood by far is the hottest, roughest trail. If you like difficult climbs, tricky obstacles, including riding across fallen trees, 5 feet in the air, 25 feet long, this is the place for you.
I ride a hard tail bike, front suspension of course. ANY bike shop in New Jersey is familiar with Ringwood riding. There are many for than 10 miles of trails here, but the 10-mile singletrack loop is plenty enough. After about 8 mikes, your legs are pretty shot.

Review: I came out to ringwood expecting cream of the crop riding in terms of the tri-state area but left confused. The amount of trails and land in general is enormous, but I felt myself stopping to look at my phone for directions way too often. There's a healthy mix of open double tracks and super tight, rocky single tracks to tackle, but again, very confusing to navigate and slow moving due to how rocky and technical the single tracks are. I'd recommend riding here only if you are confident in your riding abilities and in the company of a regular that can point out the proper direction to ride the trails and the areas to avoid.

Review: Rode here when traveling through the area. Luckily meet a local in the parking lot that new the trails really well. Place is awesome. Trails are fast, very technical, and a lot of fun but defiantly should be ridden in certain direction. Thank the local Vince for helping me out there.

Review: ROCKS! Tons of rocks! This place is not for beginners, or for anyone who doesn't know their way around, for that matter. I was lucky enough to go with some locals, who showed me around. If you like technical challenges, scary drops, and super rough singletrack, this place is a dream come true.

Review: So much fun. This is a great trail to ride with buddies that are familiar. My favorite is the white section heading back down towards the botanical garden.

Review: Orange trail did a great job of pushing me to the limit. It has everything from climbs, sights, technical, rock and more climbs. Experience recommended. Best to ride in a group. 10 miles that are as challenging as nj has to offer.

Review: Rode a 4 mile section near Parking lot C today on a Trance at the Giant Demo. From what I rode today, I am definitely going back. Nice climbs and descents. Lots of rock.

Review: Technical trails for advanced riders. Newbies should work on skills before tackling this trail. Lots of rocks and roots. Some pretty big drops too.
