Mountain Biking Six Mile Run

*****   Add a review
#4 of 112 mountain bike trails in New Jersey
#497 in the world

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.

Rider questions

Q: Are the trails smooth and not rocky?
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?
A: They would be fine on the vast majoroity of these trails

    It's a joke that this place is rated so highly here - it's a beginner/low intermediate learner spot. Often super crowded, both in the lot and on the trails. Lots of beginner behavior - guys blasting downhill not giving right-of-way to uphill riders, standing in the middle of trails, riding on muddy days - and this place has a LOT of muddy days.

    I had ridden these trails a few years ago. It was quiet and not many people. Now, its packed . But, the trails are no better. I have a half dozen trails as good as this near me up near Lake Placid. The trails are generally easy, no real rocks or roots, or rock gardens. Npo tough up hills or screaming downhills. Fun trail to rip it every now and then. Best in jersey? Well, thats more of a reflection of the paucity of good trails in NJ

    Nice long flowing trails , nothing to technical .
    I'm a guy in my 50s who has been back into MTB the past few years and the trails here are perfect for somebody at my skill level and stamina.
    One of my favorite MTB tracks to ride in the state .

    This is the best I have ridden in NJ so far. Extremely well maintained, not too rocky or rooty so the trails run fast and flow nicely. Some man made obstacles and bridges incorporated throughout the run keep things interesting. I was on the trail by 9am and the lot was full by the time I ended at 11. Definitely try to beat the rush if possible. Recommend red to white on your way out if you started on the blue. Will be going back for sure.

    First time here. Definitely go back. Nice mix. Each trail has its own features. Not too many very difficult uphills, lots of twisting single track. Some downhills, not too fast.

    A shout out to the crew that maintains these trails. Over the last year they have rerouted certain sections (for the better) added more features, i.e. bumps, bridges, berms, etc. and improved drainage. Certainly one of the best maintained trail systems in NJ.

    Fun, fast singletrack. Lots of wonderful bridges, and nice and curvy fast sections.

    Six Miles Run, is one of the best intermediate trail in the central new jersey area. Has a lot features but really fun trails and options to ride to. It has 3 different parking lot that I know that you can park and easily join in the trails. Has many different trails and route and is very well maintenance by the locals bike shops. Is a fun park but also great for starters.

    This place is awesome. I went there once and cannot wait to go back ASAP. It has a little bit of everything, for everyone of all skill levels. I didn't make it through the whole park because of time restraints and lack of stamina. This place offers some challenging climbs but then shoots you back down and flows extremely well. There are cool bridges, funnels, humps, rocks, roots, hard pack clay, great views of the canals and streams flowing. It's a really well maintained and well ridden system. Great job of whomever is taking care of this place. I also met a few friendly riders along the way who were very helpful for a newbie like myself. Trails are well marked and are very clean.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Good for new riders its very flat and very smooth some jumps here and there after a lot of riding here it can get old

    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.

    Great trail for a beginner, it was my first time ever on a trail I did get lost I would recommend going with someone who knows their way around.
