Trail Description
About this trail
Lots of awesome single track. A local bike shop and JORBA work very hard a few times a week maintaining the trails. Very few climbs but super fast. Avoid this place after a lot of rain unless you like mud.

Q: Are the trails smooth and not rocky? -Graham Burnett

A: Near the beginning (off of Rte 27) there are a few places with lots of exposed roots, but once you get going they're about average for MTB trails! Some stones/gravel, but never across pure rock.

Review: Awesome! I was totally surprised when I went. Lots of great obstacles that allow a rider to take a sidetrack challenge while another rider stays on the path with no obstacle. Lots of wooden boardwalks over swamps. Trails are impressive and impeccably maintained. By far my favorite place to go. In the winter you really get to see some awesome views of the waterways and 20 drops, on water's edge, that you do not realize are there in the summer. Do not wear white! The red Clay is awesome and makes for an amazing trail base, but it will stain all your clothes...if you care about that... Definitely worth the trip from anyplace. It is the Gem of NJ for Mountain Bikers. Take a day and take the trIp, you will be happy you did.

Review: It's fun if you're in the area, but it's not a destination. Trails are mostly advanced-beginner with some intermediate features scattered throughout. The trails are very well maintained, smooth, and fast, and a nice break from the trails at Ringwood, Jungle Habitat, and other N. NJ riding. The parking lots were pretty full on a reasonably warm December day, and I can see why, these trails are fun if they're in your neighborhood.

Review: The trail follows a creek through the woods / pasture so no real hills but there are one or two steep banks to ride.

Review: Intermediate trail with some fun obstacle. Great for a 6.5 miles trail for a quick morning ride. Start with blue trail and finish in red trail. Beautiful environment.

Review: Fun for beginners, flat but good flow. Great beginner spot for the kids to learn, but also a place to stretch out your legs and get twisty. Rode here today, and the blue trail was horrifically polluted with poison ivy on the twisty parts approaching the white trail. Wear long socks.

Review: Just rode here for the first time today. Started out on the blue trail on Canal Rd. I rode as far as I could and came back. The trail had some decent little climbs and some nice flowing turns and some features. I am a beginner, I'm 42 and weigh about 280 and I am trying to get in better shape. I would definitely give it another try to see how much farther I can make it.
