Description
Park at Ryerson Middle school and take the trail behind the fence. This turns into the Red Trail, stay left on red when the singletrack turns off the road. Follow Red Trail on singletrack and doubletrack and into longer climb through some switchbacks and ends at a cool viewpoint.

Then it's a short walk across the Green Trail over the Yellow Trail and then you can start riding again when you leave Bergen County. After that, it's a gradual technical uphill on the yellow trail to another nice viewpoint, then a technical mostly dowhnill with a more technical option to the right eventually T-ing onto the Blue Trail.

Left on the blue leads to a ripping DH and then it's back onto the Red Trail where you turn right. After the stream crossing with the delapidated bridge, turn right on the un-marked trail and enjoy the Cat's nest/ Renegade Trail that ends on a road.

Go down this road and then turn right when it T's into the next road. Climb up this past the stone house ruins and then take a left on some singletrack switchbacks. At the top turn left onto the Skylands trail, then stay straight on the fun NJ rocky trail along Skylands and Warm Puppy back to the school.
