NJ to become a Mountain Bike Mecca

The trails at Ringwood State Park continue to get better and better.
Last year was the new trail. A section that bypassed a switchback downhill and replaced it with a winding, flowing, rolling, and exhilarating stretch of trail that highlighted how good Mountain biking in NJ can be.

Well this Year Art White and the Rembrandt’s of rock have stepped up their game creating a re-route of a once hikers only trail named “Warm Puppy Rock” by Ringwood Locals.

This trail contains a number of rock features and is somewhat technical. But what Impressed me was how well they were able to utilize and integrate the natural trail lines and rock to create a unique riding experience. (Of note are a rock wall ride and downhill rock spine.)

Jeff Mergler Executive Director of the Jersey Off-Road Bicycle Association (JORBA) had this to say about this latest trail creation.
“Its truly amazing work and even the people within JORBA (me included) are patting them on the back for the scale of it. Coincidentally, NYNJTC folks have even taken notice and let Art know how nice it came out.”

Get Outside and Enjoy the Ride
