Nice tour of the upper and lower parks with a short road ride toward the end.

Overview

Washington Crossing open all year. Kuser Mountain/Bald Pate Mountain closed for hunting on various days throughout 11/16/13-2/8/14 (Sundays no hunting in NJ)
This trail can be started from 3 spots - parking lot off of the tight Washington Crossing bridge (lower lot), Church Road lot (midpoint lot), or the lot off of Pleasant Valley Road (high lot).

Terrain features include: singletrack, rock gardens, bridge crossings, optional road climb.

Need to Know

Always bring a CO2 cart and a tube. It's a long walk back.

Description

Starting from Church Road lot - the initial run starts after circumventing a wooden road block and down a gravel road. There is a clear cut into the woods on the right after 30 yards.

Turn left and ride the large horse path all the way out to the end (you'll see a road). At the moment you need to ride the same path out. After this you'll have multiple options to turn right into and get into the trails.

Footy single trek, a lot of thorns on both sides. Not well maintained but maintained. It was difficult for me find the trails initially but found them

BTW this ride sucked. It's not a bike path, it's a hiking trail with lots of hairpin turns and it's not very well marked. Except for all the signs that say NO BIKES. Jun 8, 2013


Around Baldplate mountain this trail is almost unpassable: overgrown grass & fern, fallen trees and broken bridges over the streams. Bring GPS! Jun 18, 2016
