Fast, flat single and double track, minimal obstacles and one nice stream corssing. These trails are shared by hikers & Equestrians, so be polite & dismount your bike to pass. There are also 8-10 miles of paved bike paths which are heavily travels by rollerbladers & families on foot. Be curteous, even if you are in the right.

Nice easy trail, busy though. If you are riding with kids you need to have them well trained in all manners of courtesy (ringing their bell or shouting "ON YOUR LEFT" at an appropriate time to avoid collisions or upsetting others.) Don't plan on racing through here unless it is deserted! Nice place to visit with kids, very tame.

Just a fun, mostly flat trail to blow off steam. Non-technical, but there's a cool stream crossing. Shared trail so be curious to others. Good trail to get back into biking for riders of all ages.

Recommended Route:
Rte. 287 exit 35 South Street, oposite direction of the MOrristown Green (town square)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Patriot's Path, Lewis Morris, Mahlon Dickerson, Chimney (Pop) Rock, Alamuchy, and many others...
