Hands down one of the most fun spots to ride in North Western NJ. Tons of trail options. Everything you go up, you get treated on the way down. New trails popping up all the time, especially opposite the single track down by 206. The bulldog trail crew have been adding some nice terrain. There is a great husband and wife team that does maintenance all the time. 10 plus mile rides are no problem. There are plenty of spots to bring the kids or spouses without worrying about getting worn out or hurt. Plenty of good climbs and downhills. Not much technical, except for rocks.

Been riding there for about 3 years now and without showing you the way I can't really explain it. I always try to incorporate all the north trails off of the railroad bed for a great warmup before heading out to the other points of the park. The right side of the tower is hands down the hardest route in the park (unless you stop). There is a short switchback climb just a couple of feet from the parking lot that you will truly appreciate at the end of that trail when you end up meeting up with Lake Aeroflex. The two trails that parallel the train bed from 206 are becoming my favorites due to the new "bulldog" additions on them. Just get there and start peddling anywhere and will see trails. This place rides big for being pretty small, but have fun!

Many options in this park. Nothing too difficult. You can stay on the beginner stuff but there is some intermediate too. On the other hand, you can just fly down the Sussex Branch rail trail.

This area has some wonderful trails for beginner and intermediate riders but even advanced can find some fun spots. There are about 15 miles of trails not including where you can access rails to trails- Sussex Trail for easy spinning. There are lots of rocks, rock gardens, switchbacks, roots, some crazy climbs and fun descents. Muddy in spots when it has rained but otherwise, have yourself a great time!

There are a lot of possible routes there. You can choose between going single track - pretty good for more experienced or using dirt road - long, continuous stretch

A good place for beginners to learn, and more experienced riders to have a good weekday "fun ride."
No big climbs or downhills, some fire road, some single track, some double track, some rail trail. Alot of nice, scenic, rolling terrain around a small airport.
A very nice ride; an "easy day."
Maps are available at the park office, but you can't really get lost anyway- it's a pretty small park.

Customer Service

It's a small park- you can ride it all in an afternoon (including the adjacent Sussex Rail Trail)

Easy to intermediate ride. There is some fun to had on these trails but not enough to warrent going there more than once a month. If your looking for fast challenging ride there are a few side trails that can be fun if you tear through them at break neck speeds. But be carefull becuse I'm still finding thorns lodged
in my body from my last crash there. One last peace of advice, don't bother riding to the top of the big hill at the edge of the park. If you do you'll find your self with two choices, ride a fast single track right into someones back yard or go back down the way you came.

Customer Service

None. If you ride this trail more than 4 or 5 times you've take evrey one possible.

A pretty nice track...w/ about 15 miles (give or take) of possible runs. Pretty steep hills in some places, but not very long hills...so do-able. Some pretty good downhill singletrack.....not much in terms of logs, but a far amount of rocks and clumps of rocks to challenge you. I would call this an "all-ride pedal course"...as it seems you never stop pedaling. Maybe it was b/c my buddy was/is out of shape and I had to stop for his chubby butt a bunch of times and lost mommentum. Good/fun course.....

Customer Service

Park in the lot on the right about 1.5 miles into the road...you can't miss it.

If you are up for a good long ride You can ride the RR Grade North up to Kittatiny SP. Its about 5-6 miles or so up to Kittatiny SP. The RR grade will bring you to the back of the park where you can access a handfull of the trails.

Its a result of the Green Acres Programs attempt establish corridors of open space linking state parks and such. Its a good deal. Ride it some time.

Customer Service

Park at Allamuchy lot on the old railroad grade off watterloo Road in Stanhope by the Trade zone. I believe it is the "Sussex Branch Trail."
