Average Rating:    (3.4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 20

Lake Trails: Singletrack. Up Down. Left Right. Multiple log piles. Some jumps. All man made. "Little Dipper" and "Big Dipper". These are two dirt made half pipes with 80 Degree slopes. Nothing too technical, but fun trails to bust on. Many many hills. Pine Trails: Same directions as Lake Trails, but at gate 2 Turn into trails. Singletrack. Fairly flat. Nicely shaded.

Summary:
This is a great little park for a quick single track ride. The entrance is easy to miss... park at the lot on Robertsville Road. Ride 100 feet southbound. The entrance is on the right by a white mailbox with the number 132 on it that is covered by shrubs. There are some small logs, climbs, and a cool spot in the inner section that is similar to a half pipe. There is no expert terrain here... I am an average rider and I can do pretty much everything this park has to offer. The last time I rode here was a year or two ago and it was a mess. Someone definitely did a nice job maintaining the trails recently. I spent about 30 minutes and rode the entire single track and hit some trail sections two or three times. I then went to the main section of Topanemus Park (by the parking lot) and spent another 15 minutes riding the wide gravel trails. Overall, a good workout but nothing nearly as strenuous as other nearby spots such as Clayton or Allaire. I highly recommend this place if you live close by, are looking for a fun 20 to 30 minute ride, and do not feel like driving far to hit some trails.

Recommended Route:
Stay left to do the full loop and then explore the inner section trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Clayton Park, Huber Woods, Allaire State Park

Summary:
Nice little park with easy cinder trails on the north side of the lake. Twice around and through the trails is about 5-6 miles. On the south side of the lake is the singletrack trail. The south side trailhead is not easy to find. Go out onto the road on the side opposite the main entrance on Pond Road and turn right. Turn into a couple of side streets and you will stumble on the trailhead. It's not Allaire or Shark River, but it's still a workout. I've gone a couple of times, and will again.

Summary:
Bring the kids and brand new riders to help them develop interest and skills. My 7 year old and I were escorted by the local ambassadors and loved it, there's kid size jumps, kid style climbs and kid friendly obstacles and terrain. The size of the park and winding trail routing allows quick loops and re-rides in both directions, ideal for kids who want to "learn the lines" and use the small berms.

Reviewed by: Bill , from Marlboro NJ

Summary:
Trial from Robertsville road side of the park is a well established loop. Some nice log obstacles (9), as well as the Big and Little dippers. There are also some opportunities to catch air off of some small natural ramps/drops along the trial. Trial is well maintained. However, probably not enough terrain to merit a long road trip. Beginners will probably struggle with a few of the log obstacles, expert riders might find the trial easy, although the approach to two of the log obstacles is uphill with sharp left turns. These two are then followed by a third obstacle. Makes it interesting! If you want to drive to a park in the NJ shore area, then go to Hartshorne. You will not be disappointed. If you've got kids, take them to Monmouth Battlefield state park. Lots of easy terrain that kids will enjoy.

Recommended Route:
Enter from Robertsville road. Apx 1 mile loop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cheesequake park, Tatum Park, Hartshorne Park, Monmouth Battlefield State Park
