there is basically 3 parts in these trails that are separated by jeep roads... there is a race here once a year and the race course is pretty much it, approx. 8-10 miles. lots of challenging climbs with tons of power climbs in between. it's a perfect race course. it has its share of technical sections... 85% singletrack and fast!

Summary:
I like this system of trails. They are very well groomed and clean. Who ever takes care of them does a very good job. Most of the trails flow very well and are fast and lots of fun. There are a few rocky sections and a few short"ish" moderately steep climbs. There is more climbing to be had on the north and west sides of the park with less on the south and east near rt 206. This is a great place to go after work on a week day due to the fact you can put together just about any size loop you want you can ride 5 minutes or 2 hours if you want. There are many interconnecting trails which gets confusing at times BUT if you get the trail map you can figure everything out. The trails surface are hark pack dirt and stone , the trails dont seem to get too muddy in most areas.

Recommended Route:
Get a map from the NJ DEP site and try to hit everything.

Summary:
Lots of options in this park. Nothing too difficult. You can saty on the beginner stuff but there is some intermediate too. Or if you want to you can just fly down the Sussex Branch rail trail.

Summary:
it is an ok ride, good for newer riders who dont want to get lost but want a little more of a challange than the toe path. Alot of rocks and short climbs. if you ride around you will eventually find the stuff everybody is talking about, If you want a great ride where youre sure to get lost go to alamuchey, its a few miles south on 206, that place is one of my favorites.

Recommended Route:
just ride untill u get tired, you may get bored first.

Summary:
I like Kittatinny.
that said the only other biking that I have done is on the Sussex branch trail from Waterloo Road to Lafayette.
I am new to Mountain biking and bought my bike in february.
I live 1 mile from this park so I ride in it every weeknd.
For me it is a challange.
i like the singletrack around the lake (white diamond), it is tight and fast and narrow with many trees in the way.
I don't like riding through the airport runway - that scares me alot.
I DO like the green trail and the the orange trail and the red trail and some of the blue trail.
The yellow trail is too much hill and treacherous (for me)
The most time I've spect there is 2 1/2 hours and then I've done all but the yellow trail and the one by the lake twice.
i intend to swim in the lake this summer despite the "no swimming signs"

Recommended Route:
Go in by the Aeroflex airport. Park in the lot. bear off to the left and go through the runway. Stay close to the tree-line then duck into the white diamond ride by the lake

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Sussex branch trail, Paulinskill trail
