  1. Off The Road Again

    High Bridge: NJ’s first professionally built flow trails on public land.

    As for Nassau it's open year round weather permitting. Ridden there when it was frozen - just as fun. I know nothing of pump track, not my wheelhouse.

    Good for a kid?

    Nassau definitely kid friendly - I ride there!. Lol, in all seriousness, Nassau is a fun flowy place, see lots of NICA kids riding there-really nice to see. Other places that are kid-friendly, with a little time and don't mind the drive, are Deer Park and KVSP. Those two places are a step up...

    Shout Out Thanks @ Waywayanda

    Heal up @Dingo. Glad me and Ryan were there to help you get out. And a huge thanks to the two riders, total strangers to us, who stopped and immediately offered to help. Without them I'm not sure the two of us could've gotten you safely over those two huge trees within a foot of each other.

    That sucks, glad it wasn't as bad as it coulda been. Braided line is nasty - learned early to always wear gloves when using braided line, especially if going for blues.

    If you saw me outside of my mtbnj name, you'd know me, lol. Ridden a lot of races at Waway, including a few Bearscat50 endurance events, and always ran into you and talked. Been riding Wawayanda 20 years with legends like Jim Clawson and Dick Cooper.

    Iggy - it was great seeing you guys too, at all places on Thirsty Dog. I still laugh when I remember you calling down to me, as I'm walking my bike, "Hey Mark, are you training for cyclocross?" Yep, although @Dingo didn't get hurt on crazy stuff, I've gotten hurt enough times to walk stuff I'm...

    Ah yes, thank you.

    Pete, with all due respect, we know Red Dot is not a fire road. However, the section we were on was well past Nature Jim's Bridge, well past anything technical on Red, and on the wider sections that lead to camping area, just a freak wreck. As always, appreciate your trail updates and trail...

    High Mountain Conditions

    Park at circle, well, before or after circle since we're not allowed to park at the actual circle....That will get you to Ancients, or Circle Switch to other great trails. Or, park at Water Tower at the end of Sanderling Road to get to the classic Junkyard, Glass, Indians, etc. Since no trails...

    Jungle Habitat Ride Reccomendation

    Park at bottom gate (don't think gate is open to drive up). Ride past gate, past very first kiosk, and take a left and immediate right - the middle Animal Chute. Pop out into big parking lot, go diagonal to right across lot to pick up Warthog (tamest trail). At fence opening at bottom, go right...

    Chimney Rock Conditions

    Is there a potential go-around? Don't necessarily want to see bees get killed just for being bees., they do what bees do. Hurts like a mother, but we're in their environment. Leave them be, or is that bee? or is that bea? Love the nuances of our adopted language.

    Chimney Rock Conditions

    Thanks Kirt for the info. Not too big a deal for me, not allergic, also don't really want to be stung either. My friend Ryan got stung about 7 times at Ringwoood. he's not allergic either, just feel like you got out of a boxing match., and it hurts..

    Wawayanda State Park Conditions

    To confirm, Red Dot was a disaster, lots of trees down. Wanted to take Sitting Bear to lot but was too tired and thought Red was easier out. Shoulda read Pete's post.

    Wawayanda Down Trees - Intel? Crowd Sourcing Your Observations...

    True, driving on the roads is more dangerous than riding. I haven't ridden either of them in awhile, but I don't remember The Wall as being difficult. SplitRock has some sketchy stuff but overall no more dangerous than any other trail there. I've had a bunch of friends that got hurt at 6 Mile!

    Wawayanda Down Trees - Intel? Crowd Sourcing Your Observations...

    Not shooting the messenger, and I appreciate the work you and @jeffstick do for the park. One can argue any trail at Wawayanda is 'dangerous', depending on skill level. Splitrock and the Wall have become more dangerous beCAUSE they are not maintained. I knew the person who built those trails...

    There's plenty of flow at CR, just need to learn the best lines. Yes, lots of rocks and climbing - which makes it fun. What is great about CR is the trails ride/flow no matter which direction you ride. If you don't like climbing or rocks, steer clear of Round Valley (climbing) and Sourlands...

    Sixmile for sale?

    The paragraph that talks about "reducing maintenance and capital investment backlog" is laughable. Does the state/county maintain 6 mile? Last I knew, @jdog and crew pretty much do all the maintaining, re-builds, re-routes, new bridges, etc. Kinda the same story with almost all trail systems...

    Deer Park Conditions

    Hope you have an SUV if going to Deer Park Rd lot - holy crap, that was the worst condition I've seen a couple weeks ago in the 20 yrs going there. Trails are still great, so that's what counts!!

    Press Release: Washington Valley Park Patrols (Chimney Rock)

    I'm guessing he's talking about the guy who drowned in the reservoir. I hadn't heard about any vandalism though - doesn't surprise me if it happened, assholes.
