Camden County College - TRAIL

Camden County College - Trail, Blackwood, Jersey

Mostly Single track, some sand, and a few short climbs. Short but fun, with little chance of getting lost. An interesting 1-2 hour ride.

several miles of trails great for any rider new features in last year have been added to test skills. A few good climbs thrown in the mix. Great to just go get lost and find your way out. Or for a quick ride after work.

Dung Hopper   Weekend Warrior [Jun 30, 2014]

This is a nice beginner trail. It would be a nice place to introduce a true beginner to trail riding. However, there isn't much here to test the skills of an intermediate or advanced rider. If you live within 15 minutes or so it is a nice local place. For people farther away and more advanced riders, there are better options across the Delaware River. The trail is mostly flat and surprisingly sandy. The hilliest parts seemed to be by the creek toward the northwest corner (?). There is a small log ride, a jump and a few modestly hilly trails in this area.

This is the first "real" trail I've ridden. Its fun for beginners. Mostly easy riding singletrack but certainly some challenges along the way. There are quite a few spots that are sandy but they dont bother me, fishtailing keeps me focused. I'm sure guys who know their way around there can avoid them. So far I've been there twice and haven't really figured out a loop yet but you can't get lost out there. You are either near the park, the school, or 42. My most recent trip I ran into a few different people who were all pretty cool. One guy who was just arriving as I was leaving offered some advice and was about to show another couple who had just showed up a loop.

As other reviewers have suggested this trail seems to drain very well. The first time I went out it had rained the previous night into the morning and it was fine. I also parked in the GC parking lot 7 rather then the college side. I'm not clear if you are aloud to park in the college lots or not, and if so, which one?

All in all I loved it and will be going back regularly. There were people out there but certainly not crowded and everyone out there was on a bike. I didn't not see anyone walking or with a dog. Also did not encounter any glass or dog crap. Some deer though.

Couldn't really tell you. I'm sure there is a loop or two I just haven't figured it out yet. That being said just go ride and you will be able to find your way back to your car.

CCC has a nice trail system that is great for beginner/intermediate riders. 2 new trails were added this winter with new sections added to 2 additional trails. Some short, steep climbs and decents. Has a few sandy spots, but once you know you're way around you can avoid most of it. The place drains exceptionally well after rain, can almost always be ridden the next day.

Customer Service

Park in the township park (not on the college side), park in lot #7 the trailhead is right there. Drop in, go left and ride the trails in the pack. You can easily get 7 miles in with minimal repeats.

I live a few blocks away and ride here a few times a weeks, alot of improvements over the past few years with some obstacles added and tight and turny trails added. no long climbs or descents but still some challenging sections but nothing full suspension worthy. tons of intersecting trails so you can always make new loops

Customer Service

the front part between the college and the park is fairly standard stuff and hasn't been changed much, the more challenging stuff is in the back past the college's soccer fields and goes all the way back to Orr Rd

My girl and I road it on June 12, 2009. I'm an average MTB'r however, two of the inclines almost put me in the hospital. The two of os are older and did not expect alot of suprises as we encountered. It is a fun little course, I think next time we might have to rent full body armor. There is one S turn that has a steep decline on it, I have to assume some people took some hairy wipes. If you go, you'll know the turn I'm referring to, it has a root on the left of it, and if your bailing down, good luck. I recommend this course to anyone who is tired of county park trails, this trail was friggin fun as hell. If you have clip less pedals like I do, you'll want to loosen your cleats for this course.

Customer Service

Try all of them, there are some neat little jumps I noticed off the main trails. Definately bike with someone, especially as we had no idea where we were going. I would suggest the buddy system.

No Retreat   Cross Country Rider [Nov 05, 2005]

I am able to scavenge for wood and construction sites out of dumpsters and make northshore style obstacles, bridges and jumps, when I have time, looking for some help to beef up, Camden County College track. I've run crosscountry back there for 8 years. I know every trail. Could make it a lot better. Let me know how I can help or if you can help me. It has a lot of hidden little secrets that might surprise you.

Customer Service

Park in the CYO by the basketball court. Head back through till you get to the giant sand pit some jumps there. The woods are muddy when it rains. Head over to the college side and take the big loop towards 42. 3 quarters of the way around, look for a turn off single track, it runs down and up a big climb.

Camden County is an underated place. Its by no means world class, but this place has some pretty fun/challenging single-track. As everybody notes, there are no long climbs/descents here, but some short steep ones. There are, though, some tight/flowing single track sections. We are adding more singletrack here and are working on making a pretty good loop. This place is not a killer, but is turning into a real nice winter traning place. Have Fun.

Customer Service

Everyone usually starts by grabbing the first singletrack on the left and after that there are a million different ways to go. I suggest the Dark Green route partly because I marked it but I think it flows the best. Have Fun.

Al   Weekend Warrior [Sep 30, 2003]

Great ride on One Wheel! That's correct! I'm a unicyclist I read all the great reviews from Kirk, Dave and the others, so I decided to give it a try. I have a ATB tire on my 24" Uni, which you need on these trails. I'm just getting into Muni(mountain unicyling)and this is a great course for the beginner like me. If you want more of a challenge/workout on this course, try it with a Uni. You'll love it. See you on the trails!
