I think I reiterate what many have said here already, and thank you to the folks who already posted, since these posts led me to chose this trail while passing through your state. I made the mistake of parking at the Atsion area with the goal of linking up to the orange trail that originates at Batsto. The sandy roads and unnamed trails are not that great as people have written here. But the 19 mile orange trail is a ton of fun! It is a packed single track bike trail, narrow in many spots, pretty flat and twisty so lots of fun. Pretty easy with nothing really technical except for the turns and some logs. Great for a beginner but a seasoned rider could blast through it and leave there exhausted as well. If you are training for a hilly technical event, you won't want to do all of your riding here. If you are looking to just lose yourself in the woods and crank out some miles, this is a good place. I didn't see anyone mention but the Batsto area does charge $5 to park in season. Definitely ride from Batsto and nowhere else, or you are likely to get bogged down in sand or overgrown brush and get frustrated like several posters here. Stick to the marked BIKE trails like the 19 mile orange one. Be careful crossing the fire roads. The trail is for bikers but motorbikes can use some of the dirt roads this trail crosses. And beware, like anywhere, of riders going in the opposite direction. The trail is very narrow and winds a lot, so keep your head up.
