Prison Escape Trail - TRAIL

Prison Escape Trail - Trail, Yardville, Jersey

pretty well kept secret, very rarely will you see anyone else on these trails. The township has reccently started building new and improved trails in addition to the ones that were previously used for atv's and such. There is probably about 7 miles of trails, maybe as much as 9 if you get creative. Lot of the trails are made up of steep ascents and descents, some really sweet stuff. There are also some technical sections which flatten out, these sections are mostly roots and fallen trees. also a few nice water crossings. Things to watch out for, as I mentioned before, there are some steep descents that can sneak up on you, also I've seen hunters in the woods while running before, although, I believe it is illegal to hunt there. Lastly, there is prison behind the woods, when inmates escape they usually take to the woods, doesn't happen often though.

I ride this trail because its close enough to my house that I dont have to drive there. Its mostly a quad track and they make the usual swampy muddy ruts to get swallowed up in. Nothing technical here really, since the quad riders remove any obstacle on the trail. Its ok for an after work ride just to work up your heart rate a bit though. The loop is maybe 4 miles max with a couple short bombing downhills in one little section. I would never think of driving here but when I just feel like jumping on my bike it suffices. Watch out, I saw some bear tracks the other day.

Well I found this Trail here a week ago and it is right behind my house and never knew it!!! thanks to the guy that posted it. 1st the good news. the trail starts off with a very nice twisting downhill with a major dropoff to the left into a stream maybe 30 feet down. (don't turn left whatever you do). Some serious deep ruts to manuvure through but not a bad start at all. Ground is soft; almost like riding in sand which makes it difficult if you don't know how to ride. Now the bad news. Just as I was getting enthused about this brand new find,,,,BAM!!! A monster tree blocking the trail and no way around it. Thick brush on both sides and branches everywhere so you can't walk your bike through it or over it. And I mean a monster tree. I couldn't budge it and I'm a pretty big guy. Well I'm curious to ride the rest of this darn thing so I guess I'm going back with a saw and clearing the way hopefully this week or next week. When the task is complete, I will ride the rest of it and tell you if my efforts were worth all the trouble. I will say that the beginning was good enough to put in an hours work to find out.
