Summary:
Rode these trails for the first time while down from upstate New York on a work trip. Wow. Very fast, with a few little things thrown in to keep things interesting. Perfect rigid SS trail.

Recommended Route:
Navesink/Milk lot, clockwise ridge to grand tour to rocky point and return. Super fun rolling route- some climbing but not too bad.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Six Mile State Park

Summary:
I am a visitor from Atlanta, GA. Got a chance to ride Hartshorne trail today June 26, 09. I was lucky to meet two guys on the trail (Jason and Mark) and got a guided tour. All i can say is that i had fun. Lots of short technical climb, great down hill with a foot drop, and not many mub pits. This trail drain water very well, unlike Chimney Rock(rode it the day before). Overall, i had a good work out and a great time. Thanks again Jason and Mark.

Recommended Route:
Ride all the black diamond. Laurel is fun too.

Summary:
I actually ride this place more then once a week, sometimes 3-4 times. This is an update from my last review. Hartshorne is really really fast. Every ride for me is different. There isn't anything overly technical like Ringwood but this trail system will challenge you. There isn't too much flat sections; but lots of steep up and steep down type of riding. There are some cool places to do drop offs and continue riding. The place has become sandy in spots but not enough to be discouraging. Awesome place

Recommended Route:
Laurel Ridge to Rocky Point and then backwards

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Allaire

Summary:
Rode Hartshorne Woods yesterday on the basis of reviews posted here. Most excellent place to ride. Entering off Locust/Navesink the first 2 hills (laurel canyon) = almost 1 mile of climb. Not bad for anywhere let alone someplace in Jersey close to NYC. Erosion has led to some hills that are difficult to ascend (erosion control features combining with run-off to make for 3 foot+ drops) but once you know the park my guess is that these trails can all be riden descending.

The area is sandy and the folks who maintain the trails have spread more in some of the more worn areas susceptible to puddling. I was laughing all the way as sand always makes for that little bit of "oh #@$!" that is always invigorating while riding. Sand is great for working on balance, light steering touch, and basic bike control. Going "kamikaze" on some of the descents, without a light touch, will land you in taco hell.

Trails are much used and wide in some places but the climbs are awesome and of course what goes up...... ;-P

Recommended Route:
I rode the Grand Tour and Rocky Point. It seemed all good too me. As a reviewer said below you can get confused but it is hard to get lost.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Live just outside NW corner of Philadelphia. First foray into Jersey so no other recommendations yet.
