Summary:
this place is HUGE. start off on wide fire roads head straight to end, turn left. look on the right for motorcycle tracks through a narrow opening in brush. This brings you to pit. Watch for moon craters with water- some are 6ft+ deep. head across pit to rt. corner to find fantastic twisty doubletrack with berms through woods. Mostly flat, some sand and roots. Intermediate but can be fun for higher skill levels If you are so slow that a homeless person on foot can catch you stay home...I have seen signs for "no motor vehicles" only.

Recommended Route:
from East Brunswick take summerhill road towards spotswood. Turn rt. to main st., then left at first light, then left again at fork with triangle. park along road. ride up road a bit and you'll see trail head on rt. side. numerous entrances.
