Great Trail. The entrance is on Main Street. There is a sign out front but the address that I found on google maps is 963 Main St.Mantua Township, New Jersey.

I have not ridden this trail yet but wanted to alert those of you that might be using GPS to find it. I live in VA and am working in Marlton NJ on a project. What a perfect time to check out you're local trails. Ceres Park got very favorable ratings. There is no address for Ceres Park but the GPS will find it, just be wary. It took me down a road very close to the park but it terminated in someones driveway, which I THINK, backed up to the park property. I don't think the dude in the driveway appreciated my intrusion into his driveway to turn around. I did find the entrance to the park. It was dusk and so I did not get a chance to ride but the parking lot is much bigger than some of my tracks back in VA. I was wondering if someone my email me about the safety of the parking lot and which trails to ride etc. Looking forward to the ride! Thanks if anyone can reach out to me! Mark

Flowy singletrack with a ton of TTFs scattered around the park. Trails are well maintained, by a devoted group od riders. Not a ton of climbing, just fast, fun trails. If you don't know you're way around it's easy to get lost. Definately the best spot to ride in SJ

park in the back lot and start out with the rollercoaster and then work your way around to some of the other good stuff.

GCC is more xc race oriented with some hard climbs and a ton of roots.
CCC is a smaller loop great for beginners, intermediates and dries up quicker after rain than any other place I've ever been.

Ceres park is a great place to ride. It is maintained by the local riders. It has gap jumps, drops, berms, inclines, declines, skinnies, log rides, bridges, etc.... Ceres has a little bit of everything.

I ride Ceres Three four times a month, and it is by far the best place to ride in and around South Jersey! The riders have been putting alot of effort into building and maintaining the trails. They always have much more built each and every time I go back. With plenty of bridges..(up to thirty feet long)..., balance beam, titter totter, and many pathways done you have endless fun riding........But unfortunately on November 19 2010 somebody destroyed everything with a chain-saw... So if you could please take your time and support the trails on facebook...LOOK UP....(SAVE CERES TRAILS) SO PLEASE... PLEASE... TAKE THE TIME AND LITTLE EFFORT AND HELP SUPPORT THE LOCAL TRAILS!!!

Customer Service

TO STAND IN NUMBERS......THANK YOU!....

This place is great. After mtbing here several years, I brought a GPS and went along the perimeter. It's much bigger than I originally thought.

It can be a little daunting to figure out where you're going, but just listen to these other guys. The red trail is golden.

And whoever maintains it does a good job, I tend to fix things as I ride along to try and help out. One bridge was swept away by water and I had to walk downstream to retrieve it, which wasn't as upsetting as I later found.

Several bridges were cut into many many pieces by a chainsaw by the looks of it. It was a very sad thing to see. I believe it's still in park property so I'm not sure why anyone would do such a thing.

One more thing, only go there when it's a little more dry. The trails are very soft after a rain which makes it really difficult build up speed.

Customer Service

Same as the other guys, but you can follow the orange later on during the red trail.

Clayton Park is better when it's rained a few days before, it drains better. But Ceres is way better when it's dry.

I agree with the latest review this place is a real gem thats close to home for me. Looks like some people do care. Keep up the great work.

Customer Service

Take 1st green trail on left and follow that over stream bridge just before 55 overpass follow green trail to red trail 7 mile loop. You can also ride under 55 to other side but I think that area may be posted and may be developed into some kind of indoor turf field.
