Summary:
Ever since 2002, this trail has not been updated on its review. Today, I rode this trail for the first time and realized that this trail hasn't been maintained since 2002. I would not recommend this trail to any rider since you will be wondering where the trail is to getting off your bike multiple times to avoid the chest high logs.

Recommended Route:

Reviewed by: Adam Spar , from Princeton, NJ

Summary:
Techy: logs, root, streams. big baby-head rock garden. Can get muddy at times. Intended for hikers (I think biking is prohibited) but I've never seen any park people in there. The only downside is that they dont move big fallen trees out of the way, so sometimes you have to pull a little "cyclocross-ing" (ie. pick up the bike and walk 4 feet)

Recommended Route:
Check the map at the trailhead, find the longest route. FYI: The blue trail is flat and really muddy after it rains. Take the trail right across from the entrance (not at the end of the parking lot)Go up and bear left at the abandoned house. Then take the trail on your right (big uphill). After that your home free, almost all downhill. After you double back across the open grassy area, bear right at the turns for some kickass downhills, streams, and other fun stuff.

Summary:
This trail is great! If you put it together well you can get in about 2 to 3 miles of singletrack w/o looping! its got great technical areas as well as downhills and streams and logs! I highly recommend it!!!

Recommended Route:
Starting at 27(Nassau st.) turn onto snoden lane, then take that down a ways. You will get to climb after about 1 min then it will be on your left (you pass roughly 3 left turns). If you get to a T with a white fence you have gone too far. Its a paved road so its decieving but it leads to the trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Chimny Rock also kicks ass!!!
