Deer Path Park (Round Mt Section) & Henry Buell Trail

Average Rating:    (2.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Almost totally singletrack (hiking trail) with a few short sections that follow jeep track or quad track. Moderately technical with some fairly steep sustained climbs and short but significant rocky patches. Challenging, but nothing insane.

Summary:
I was at this park August 12, 2006, I got there early as they were setting up for the Sea Food Festival. I rode around the lake looking for a trail. The only thing I could find was some sort of a horse trail cut out of the grass that went in a big circle. If there were any single trails off that then they were over grown, because I couldn’t find them. From what I’ve seen this is not a mountain biking park it’s more like the park for a family Barbeque. Although I will be back next year for the Sea Food Festival !

Summary:
i just took my first ride here. pretty overgrown in some spots. no side trails of any sort, but a nice out and back for a weekday local ride. give it a shot if you have extra time and you dont have to drive over 10 miles to get there.

Recommended Route:
i followed the horse trail up, crossed over the power lines and continued. after crossing the bridge and taking you first right wasnt such a hot trail, overgrown with weeds, grass and crap.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
round valley

Reviewed by: Mr. Deadpoint , from Flemington, NJ

Summary:
This red-blazed trail can be accessed from West Woodschurch Road on south end or from Foothill Road (parking area) on north side. Trail passes through hardwood forest, heavily leaf-covered in late fall. Some fairly steep and sustained climbing. Rocky patches are difficult enough to daunt and frustrate. This ride has some of the flavor of nearby Round Valley Rec. Area, but on a much more modest scale, exertion level, and time commitment. Challenging, but nothing insane. This trail is most suited to reasonably fit intermediates with some technical skills.

Recommended Route:
Buell (Henry or Peter) Trail is the only one I know of in this section of the park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Round Valley Recreation Area.
