Summary:
Overall a nice trail worth checking out for riders of all skill levels. Centrally located for most of north Jersey. Well maintained. Not very technical. Nice aerobic workout.

Recommended Route:
Doing the yellow loop twice is close to 10 miles and a nice workout.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Chimney Rock.

Summary:
I wanted to ride while visiting my folks in Jersey and this was close and looked good. Great trails for solo rides. Not very challenging for an experienced rider, but still fun and easy to navigate. Plenty of different routes to try and the loops are good in both directions. I was only out for an hour and a half, but you could stretch it into 2 easily.

I'm awarding chillies as an experienced rider. I met up with a few guys that thought the up hills were pretty tough and the downs challenging. Again, it's definitely not boring, worth the trip out, just not overly challenging.

Recommended Route:
Start at the lake and ride em all.

Summary:
Quick blast. Great Buzz. Intermediate. Beginners will have some issues.

Recommended Route:
As a alternative to the other posts, start from the dirt parking lot off of Tempe Wick Road rather than from Route 24 / Route 510. This is the south end of the park. Head north towards sunrise lake on the Yellow trail but do not go that far. Take the Orange cutoff trail, heading west, up and down, over the wood bridge, then and up and down again. These little climbs will work your lungs a bit. Return to the yellow trail, now heading south, and add in a quick spin around the inner Red trail loop, near the south end of the park, and end up back at your car. This is about a 7 mile, one hour dash. More fun and cheaper than therapy.

Admittedly, this park is poorly blazed at times since they repeat blues and oranges for inconsequential spurs.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
After Lewis Morris, work your way up to Mahlon Dickerson, off of Weldon Road in Jefferson, then onto the remoteness of Wawayanda off of Clinton Road in West Wilford, then finally onto the big boy steeps of Ringwood.

Summary:
Targeted towards the novice mtber very fun to ride in the beginning of the year. i went hear for my first ride to get used to the pedals(i went clipless)not counting my traing on trails by my house. not technical but not boring. i reccomend a high pressure. lot of roots almost got pinch flats.

Recommended Route:
Take yellow trail at sunrise lake it has some long climbs but the best single track i've seen ever. or you should do the whole park(there are only 4 trails)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ringwood half hour away

Summary:
Great beginner friendly place. About 600 feet of elevation so you do need to have some level of fitness.
