Weekend Warrior

As the previous reviews stated, small and not too technical. But........Someone has decided to turn all of the downhill sections into steps made of railroad ties. Steps are not evenly spaced and most have not been backfilled. Going down can be tricky. Going up is obviously impossible and there is no way to ride around. Downed trees have been used to block riding up the sides. Do not plan to go back there anymore.

Weekend Warrior

Fun little place for an 'after-work' jaunt, or if youre pressed for time on a weekend afternoon. Couple short, fun downhills. There was 1 realllllllly rutted steep drop, that I didn't try. Also maybe a 4~5' drop to a nice transition in one location by the water. I didn't try that one yet, but will got back & give it a shot, looked like fun. There was another section leading off into the woods that has gotten pretty overgrown, if I hadn't been by myself I wouldve pressed father back, maybe this 'north-shore' stuff is over there?

Past the soccer fields into the main entrance, stay to the right & you'll come to the couple drops/jumps I mentioned.

This place is fun but VERY small. Three miles of trail is being very chartitable. It is tiny, you maybe can sketch out a 1.5 mile loop and there is no room to develop new trails. The area is a small wooded area that is in western Camden County and you won't forget that while you're riding. You are constantly within sight of houses, power plants, or the speed line that borders the park. There is no room to add any new trails because the only area left without trails is low-lying marsh land. For all that, these are fun, rolling trails (they just don't last very long).

Customer Service

IN THE PARK: Anywhere, it does n't really make a big difference. GETTING TO THE PARK: DO NOT FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS LEFT BY PREVIOUS REVIEWERS, they tell you very little and will leave you frustrated if you try to use them. If coming from 295, take Route 30 East and make a left on Warwick Road then make a right on Upland Way and follow until you pass under a narrow train tressel, make a right IMMEDIATELY (like 8 feet) after the tressel. Coming from Kings Highway, make a Right just before Tanner St. or a left just after Tanner St. then make a left at the first main intersection (right next to the school) then make a right onto Centre St., follow Centre St. to that same tressel and make a left just before the tressel. Oh, have any trouble and the guys at Freeride Bike Shop on Kings Highway will help you. Support that shop.

This park isn't really tech. but it's alot of fun. The trails are in and out of each other. Their is a monster hill that takes some definite guts. It's in the back and I've honestly never seen anyone try but me and a few friends. We strapped a camera to a helmet with zip ties and decided that it would be great to get a good fall on tape. Nobody fell which is amazing but we haven't done it since.

Customer Service

When you go in, stay to your far right. The trail will keep you along the speedline. Most of the trails in the park break off of this trail. The more technical stuff is on the back end. You have to get past a small stream that runs through the middle. Not really a big deal but when it rains the bridge (pretty mangled) tends to float away.

This is really the big spot in the area. We're in some desperate need of some new trails!

I must say, it's been 3-4 years since I've been to these trails. Overall, not a bad series of short trails, but you really never get any MO going.

There are some nice short climbs and some narrow sections, but nothing more. If you are looking for a short ride, then this is your place. Just beware that weekends could have some heavy user traffic with people and their dogs. Go early if you plan to ride here.

Take main trailhead entrance and stay left

Considering the place is situated in the middle of the 'burbs in South Jersey, it's not bad. Couple short but steep hills, nothing terribly exciting but rough enough to break my dad's neck in three places. Good place to develope some basic skills. There is a lot of equestrian traffic, but you can still keep up a decent pace w/o much trouble.

Cool little bridges and one fun downhill. Very short. If you go, try to go when most people are working because there is alot of people walking dogs that are NOT on leashes. One dog is there everytime we have gone and he bites our tires. Last time we went, 3 of us rode threw dog crap. We have not gone back since. It is a shame people ruin it by not taking care of there animals properly. I would have givin it a higher rating.
