Summary:
If you like rocks, this is the place for you. I would say it's 90-95% rock trails with a few single track that have a splash of dirt. It is challenging for sure and not really recommended for the beginner.

Summary:
Fun mix with a lot of variety.

Total Beginners should stay on the outer sections of the trails.
It has something for everybody.

If you are thinking about going here, come and check it out- I have seen sponsored MTB'ers riding the hard sections of trails, and 8 year old kids riding on the intermediate trails.

I love riding these trails.

Recommended Route:
Starting out at Newman's Lane Parking Lot.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
This is the best trail in Central NJ.

Summary:
I am a visitor from Atlanta ga. Rode this trail yesterday June 25, 09. Chimney rock is a mud pit. It does not drain water well at all. I know it had been raining. I didn't enjoy the trail much. I wish i had a local tour guide and a drier trail. I just went out and rode all over. Got in about 12 miles. Some good uphill. Maybe next time i can hook up with some local.

Recommended Route:
don't know

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hartshorne near Sandy hook

Summary:
i used to ride this a couple times per week when i lived in cranford but now i live in nyc, and it is definitely one of the best places in the metropolitan area. i would love to get down to hartshorne woods more often as well. i just rode chimney rock on 5/25/09, it was just how i remembered it. i am not a rockstar by any stretch of the imagination and find myself unclipping a lot but the park and my bike push me to be a better rider. i can imagine how fantastic it must be to ride it complete. there is something here for everyone, rock gardens, tight singletrack, good climbs, mud, watercrossings, log crossings, roots, did i say roots? it is where i learned to mtn bike and it still thrills me.

Recommended Route:
any of them, although i do like the red and blue lines.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
hartshorne woods on the shore, not quite in the same area.

Summary:
many places to start from. most of which loop back to the starting point. nice trails around the reservoir and some very technical parts on the quarry side of the reservoir. nice single track on the north side of chimney rock road.

Recommended Route:
no recommended route. really just an area where you have to go exploring. very park with a nice town near by. worth getting lost in.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
round valley reservoir. duke island park. d and r canal.
