Beginner trail. Maze-Like. They are really hiking trails, but it allows biking. Some kids built BMX jumps around there too.

Summary:
This is a small trail. Flat singletrack. Some roots. Great for beginners and introducing kids (8 year olds?) to mountain biking. If you're not from Westfield or Clark or Scotch Plains, don't bother.

Summary:
Hmmm, last rode this, um, 30 years ago? Anyway, it's a good trail for kids. The "good" hill is between the bridge and the crossover the stream that gets to the single track. There is alternate access from Norwood Drive. Technical only because of logs that are frequently across the path.
Some poison ivy too.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Trails in Watchung Reservation, a few miles NW of town. Good road climb from Westfield up to the reservation.

Summary:
This area is absolutely beautiful! It's great for beginners, and experts can enjoy other more difficult areas. If you want a little thrill, try out the BMX jumps.

Recommended Route:
Same as mentioned in reveiw.

Summary:
Very flat, but nice winding trail. Has some logs in the path that you can go over or ride around. Would not recommend unless you lived in area. Can complete the full set of looping trails in 5 - 10 minutes.

Recommended Route:
Take bridge at parking lot and follow trail about a 1/4 mile to start of single track. Follow trail to right and loop around in woods.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Chimney Rock - Technical, Lewis Morris - Hills, Patriots Path - Beginner
