    Quarry Park

    Thanks @stb222 for posting the details. Looks promising for MTB riding and skills. Do I read the map correctly that they are planning on redoing the Yellow Trail? I really like running that trail, yet not something I'd want to try on my bike. Makes me sad if true. Definitely want to keep MTB...

    The eastern part of Bald Pate Park remains closed from the Prescribed burn. Other areas open today. Here is a map of the closed section.

    Just an FYI. Bald Pate park will be having a Prescribed Burn in the next few weeks, to clear out trees impacted by the Ash Borer infestation. I saw some NJ Forest Fire crew today and they said they plan to burn on Tue 4/20, likely all day. The Park will be closed during the burns. There may be...

    Completed the survey and indicated desire to connect BP Red and Yellow trails to the new Quarry Park. Also volunteered to help build trails. Now on the email list to receive notices.

    Rode BP this morning before the snow. Red Trail, White Ridge Trail and the Switchbacks towards Pleasant Valley Rd. Everything was dry and frozen. So nice to ride without mud or slick conditions. It will be awhile before the snow is gone.

    Kuser trail today was a bit mushy from Pleasant Valley parking lot down along Power Lines, then gets better. The bottom third, going to the creek, was a mess. Ridge Trail was good, except loaded with people hiking and a few horses. Mid 60s in December brings everyone out.

    Yes, it's a mess. Was there last week after much rain. The Kuser trail (currently blazed green) was washed out with clumps of wet leaves. The Red Trail is muddy at the bottom, as usual.

    Mercer County Park Conditions

    I road there on Sunday, all of blue out to power line and back. Wanted to try the log over on the way back, didn't have enough speed and it was a fail. Maybe next time. Thanks for the build up.

    What have you done to your bike today?

    I added a dropper post to my bike, my first. The one I really a want is on backorder for a month. Couldn't find an available substitute (external route, 375mm total length) so I bought a lever based dropper to learn with. Yeah, I know, far from a remote dropper, but it will do until the...

    Mercer County Park Conditions

    I discovered something today that was a bit surprising. Exiting the Blue Trail North section onto to powerlines access road, my ride group went right, towards the boat house, instead of left towards the neighborhood exit. We wanted to reenter the Blue Trail South by the boat house. The PL access...
