    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    waway is a complete disaster. red dot totally unrideable, mojo unrideable, hemlock unrideable. twin bridges is ok generally. i've honestly never seen it this bad, even after sandy. trees down everywhere, and it's not just one-offs its big sprawling trees that are taking out 20-30 ft of trail at...

    its always been my understanding that leaving the trees and creating bypasses is no good as it widens the trails

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    serious question...has anyone been bitten or does anyone know someone who has been bitten by a rattlesnake here? i've been riding for 10+ years and saw a grand total of 1 rattlesnake in that time. this past week i have seen THREE of them, and today was a VERY close call. descending turkey ridge...

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    btw i've decided that this tree after the rock bridge is the biggest tree i've ever seen fallen at waway. i saw 2 separate families of hikers forced to turn around over the weekend because there was no way for them to get the small children over it.

    New trail connecting Red Dot with Cedar Swamp

    this whole thing is absurd. were these same park rangers this upset during the epic battle over mojo trail last summer when someone carved a worthless 30ft bypass off of the main trail and the opposing factions took turns dumping rocks branches and very dangerous debris into the others' trail...

    New trail connecting Red Dot with Cedar Swamp

    it's a nice trail. good flow. as far as being legal or not i cannot say, although if you think about it, it took a lot of man hours and equipment to build that trail. if the ranger office didn't sanction it, the rangers sure aren't out patrolling the park AT ALL. maybe that's why they're so...

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    yeah i don't care. it doesn't give him license to butcher perfectly fine trails and make them confusing to everyone for zero benefit (no offense to the 3 of you who do xc skiing). that's how we end up losing access to parks

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    very sad to report that someone over the past 24 hours vandalized and destroyed a section of mojo swamp. seems like there's a back and forth pissing match between ppl who want the trail to remain on its normal course and someone who insists there needs to be a shortcut through a roundabout...

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    trees still down all over the place on red dot. called the office again today and the nice person on the phone brought up the downed tree on the walkway near the main beach that still hasn't been cleared after a month. they put up caution tape but left the tree there. that is to say, there's not...

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    red dot is just about unrideable from about nature jim's bridge and beyond. trees and large branches down what seemed like every 200 ft or so.

    you are truly the salt of the earth to be out riding in this weather. biking is a distant memory for me with these temps

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    hey when did that log bridge and rock work get done on mojo in that swampy section? that area for me was always a disaster. now it's fantastic! great job to whoever did it

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    you're probably right. i remember when the pipeline fiasco happened i came upon a utility truck stuck in that spot. guy said they were in the mud for an hour and had to wait for another truck to come and free them... rode this new gravity trail yesterday. FUN! started from the end of buddha...

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    sweet jesus i almost take back all the terrible things i've said about the very poor trail maintenance support from the ranger's office. when did they pave / gravel that swampy mess at the bottom of old coal on the way towards the pipeline? it was easily the worst section in the park, and now...

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    i was going to post that i wasn't sure this new one is thirsty dog. the thirst dog that's on existing maps just kind of dumps you off onto a big rock and abandons you. you need to backtrack to get out of it. anyway, rode last night. not sure what's going on with the area just past nature jim's...

    Hit and run in Verona last night

    there won't be any repercussions. nothing's going to happen to this guy other than a slap on the wrist. i've always said, if you legitimately want to get away with murder in this country, run over a cyclist with your car. i've been following such stories for years. the most these people get is...
