    Cranks Around the Campfire Mt Biking Festival Weekend is back for its 8th year!

    Northwest New Jersey is the place to be for a long weekend of mountain biking action! Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced rides will be offered twice a day and will explore the diverse terrain of Allamuchy, Stephens, and Deer Park. There will be activities all weekend for the whole family with children's activities scheduled to enable parents to join the group rides!

    Mt Allamuchy Scout Reservation is the ideal spot for the festival. Just minutes from Rt. 80, the camp is easy to get to and at the same time located on a 900 acre parcel of forest that has been preserved for decades under the ownership of the BSA. The camp is easily navigated by forest road and all campsites can be accessed by car. The campsites are group style so you can pitch your tent wherever you like. You are free to choose seculusion or form a tent city with all your riding buddies.

    The camp is located in the center of Allamuchy North, Stephens, and Deer Park Mountain biking trail networks. Riders can access Allamuchy North directly from camp. Stephens is across the street from us and Deer Park just a couple minutes down the road by bike. Cranks is a great opportunity to learn new trails in these 3 parks. In addition to all the singletrack in the 3 parks, our camp contains miles of singletrack and jeep roads to explore. There are trails for every age and skill level. Join us for night rides each night on the reservation. We will have some lights to borrow provided by sponsor Princeton Tec.

    Many off-the-bike events are planned for the whole family. Head to the dining hall Friday night for a double feature mtb movie night. On Saturday night grab your favorite beverage and join your fellow campers for a Beach Party BBQ at the waterfront. There will be free Hotdogs and Hamburgers. After the party, chill out at the bonfire. Children can experience the outdoors with camp staff participating in group rides, nature hikes, fishing, geo-caching, handicrafts, waterfront activities, and much more. The waterfront will be open for swimming at select times.

    The festival benefits youth mountain biking programs at the Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation. Each summer, Camp Somers introduces at least a hundred kids to the sport of mountain biking. Each youth by the end of the week is cruising singletrack in Allamuchy and Stephens State Parks. Help us expand our program to offer this opportunity to both Scouts and the general public on weekends throughout year.

    Admission to the festival is free for youths under 18 years old. Please no pets on reservation property. If you'd like to bring a small RV please contact us to make arrangements. We have water and electric hookups.
