No. of Reviews: 7

Lots of variety and lots of surprises in this place which offers creeks, woods and views of NYC and Paterson. Mostly narrow trails. Tough, technical climbs, and fast, short downhills with unexpected drops. Also quite a few carriage trails, which are fun. Fun, tough place. Totally unexpected. And you can go on the main road on your bike and head south to extend your ride at Rifle Camp Park.

Summary:
Got shut down to mt biking last summer. Coppers getting a little over zealous with enforcement. Too bad. Good trails, but ya gotta stay off the main paths. Same with Rifle Camp Park. Lots of little drops, rocks, obstacles. Fun for a quick ride if you cant go up to Ringwood.
