I'm without car so so I came up with the following plan :

Holmdel -> Hudson trail ->Navasink ave -> looping Harshorne park (covering most of the trails ) -> Crossing Huber woods park -> navasink river road -> 35 ->back to holmdel

I believe it is about 40 miles 25 paved the rest are singles .

you welcome to join me , not a crazy pace but minimum stops are planned .

planned to start - 0830 .

there were some muddy places when stream crossed the trail - that's all ! unbelievable where all water disappeared !

I was pretty covered with mud taking the fire road in Huber woods park .

Navasink river rd scares me, it would be nice if it were closed to cars.

Yup, the fire road between Nav river rd and the environmental ctr was super wet today over at Huber. The trails were another story completely. Glad you got your ride in.

No need for a snorkel! Just find the hills that go over and around all the low spots!:getsome:

Oh, I found the hills saturday. Did the "Sean's Uber Death Hill March" from the Newmans Lane lot. I left my computer on kmph so it looked like I was killing it. It killed me in the face. I'm glad it was a nice casual group ride today at Heartshorne. It was fun to see everybody in a mega group.

Legs hurt = beer time. The weekends not over yet. :D

planing another one - 3/27
Holmdel - > hudson trail -> Hartshorne (Jim Loop ) -> hubber woods -> back to Holmdel through Hudson Trail .
Hope to catch 35 Miles before the rain ....

Please PM me or replay this mail if you like to join .
Constant pace , but not Hummer fast.

Jim loop ( in Jim's words ) :

Start at the bottom lot. Go in on the right and climb that first hill and follow all the way back to the fireroad. Go across the fireroad and climb to the watertower. Go down that hill and across the fireroad again, stay straight through the first trail split. Make that left to go up the climb next to the upper lot. Don't jump out onto the road in the middle, take it to the top. Right onto the fireroad, right at the fork, and down to the paved road. Left onto the paved road and past the upper lot. Dip into the bunker loop on the left. Do the whole bunker loop clockwise and you pop out back on the road in the middle of that climb. Now go down that climb and make a left at the bottom. Then it's all lefts. Standard Hartshorne loop. You'll end up doing all the stuff in the beginning backwards. It's 10 miles.
