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.

Trail Q&A
Rider Questions

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.

Q: How is this trail for beginners? I have ridden the trails at Camden County College, but that is also the only trail I've ridden. I also sometimes bike with friends who only have "walmart" bikes, would they be okay on these trails? -Guest

A: Good beginners trail. Not a lot of vertical climbs or typical rocky/rooty NJ conditions. Lots of flow with the only real challenge for newbies would be handling the tight turns on narrow singletrack.

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: Really nice flowy ride with some log jumps and cool bridges. Start at the blue track. Great for beginners and some obstacles for intermediates.

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.

Review: Consistently rated as one of Jersey's best, Six Mile Run State Park is a great, relatively easy trail system with great features which is well maintained by local volunteers. Lots of fun, flowy and twisty singletrack with varied distance (ride as little or as much as you want) and you can hit the whole park to ride as much as 16-18 miles. MOST IMPORTANTLY this park is very sensitive to wet conditions and SHOULD NOT be ridden when it is wet and or muddy. PLEASE avoid the trail under these conditions. The fact that there are many low-lying points, combined with the water that runs through and the soil composition make riding in wet conditions VERY damaging to the trails. DON'T DO IT!!

Review: Always a great trail to ride... It can be very muddy after it rains, so it's best to stay away for a day or two if you don't like mud. Orange trail is a blast and helps you hone in your turning skills, switch backs after switch backs. Trail maintenance is well done here, year after year there's always new features added to this already amazing trail. It's not rocky by any means but there are some sections with roots that can be challenging. This is a great trail for beginners.....

Review: This trail is amazing - love riding it after a nice thorough rainfall. The trails get nice and tacky and a little mushy. It's a badge of honor to leave the trail with the orange clay all over your bike!

Review: Everyone raves about Six Mile so I decided to give it a try. After logging about 17 miles and 250 feet of elevation, I think we covered about everything there. This is probably the best beginner trail out there. Not much climbing and the terrain is very easy. Unfortunately for me, there's not much climbing and the terrain is very easy. The straight path is nice because you can turn back at any time. Ride until you're tired and then come back. You also can't get lost so everyone can go their own pace and regroup farther down the trail. WARNING: I'd still highly recommend a mountain bike for beginners. Sure, you CX guys can rip it here but if you're just starting out or want to introduce a buddy, proper off road tires will help significantly. Front suspension will help too. This trail is fast and flowy with some fun bridges and small jumps but will likely be a little boring for advanced riders. I'm having fun whenever I'm on my bike but left Six Mile wanting more. I'd give Six Mile Run 4 stars because it's probably the best at it's job, which is being a super fast, fun to ride, beginner friendly trail. Certainly a nice change of pace (literally) but as someone who prefers to ride more challenging terrain, I'd probably look to get my thrills elsewhere.

Review: The blue trail was fast and had some excellent bumps and log crossings. The red return loop was a bit harder with some punchy climbs. Our family enjoyed the trail. Both boys had a great time. Thanks to the trail team that works on this. They had been through recently to cut back the brush. #drtkdz
