Washingtons Crossing State Park - TRAIL

Washingtons Crossing State Park - Trail, Titusville, Jersey

Varied. Lots of nice single track and hills. Several technical sections and water crossings. Best to ride early or late. Can be busy with hikers.

This should really be renamed "Bald Pate Mountain/Ted Stiles Preserve."
I ride this course 2x-3x week as it is clsoest to my home. We have recently been given permission to build trails here (Q2-2009) so ignore the illegal notices.

There are now maps posted so you can find your way now.

There are 2 main parts of this course - the lower part "Washington Crossing Park" and the upper part "Bald Pate Mountain". Parking in the lot at Church Rd. + Fiddlers Creek Rd. put you right in the middle of both areas.

What i like to call the super loop:
1-the climb - there is some major climbing and some fun downhills. (7-8 miles).

2-the park - after the climb loop i return to the parking lot and continue to lower area (4-5 miles) for a more mild single track.

It's people like the last poster who ruin things for everyone else. He rides illegally and boasts about it in the Internet. Real smart. Makes mountain bikers look good in the eyes of others and give ammo to those who wish to ban them everywhere.

Customer Service

Do not ride here.

There's some sweet riding in Washington's Crossing (WC). It's got short, steep climbs, a few nice drops, and some challenging technical sections. I've been riding here once or twice a month for the last 5 months. I've never seen a park ranger, and I've never been hassled by anyone. My crew gives walkers the right of way. We've never had a problem. Yes, most of the trails do prohibit bikes. However, I can't see how we're doing any damage to the trails. I'll keep riding WC.

Even if the entire park was open to MTBing this ride would be too short and boring. Only the far end of the park is open near the open pasture with a very short technical section.

Customer Service

None. Only one loop.

I grew up and still live next to the park. I used to ride there when it was legal. But some foolish rides ruined it for everyone. DO NOT RIDE HERE! If you are active in biking I sugest writing to our congressman, because I have already tryed to talk with the rangers. And well honestly they are not nice men. Actually it dos'nt matter that you can't ride there since they brought in the bulldozers(and they told me they were'nt making any more trails!). Once again DONT RIDE HERE! YOU COULD LOSE YOUR BIKE TO THE STATE!

Customer Service

No route. It is illegal to ride at wash crossing!
