    kinda late on this one.... but, how are the trails over at jungle habitat? i was just riding at ringwood out of lot c yesterday, pretty successful day of riding, it was only my second time there but i found a lot of new trails that i didn't stumble upon the first time. anyway i hear a lot of good things about jungle habitat, and also that it's a bit creepy with all the old buildings standing around, what are your thoughts?

    People have done DH shuttle runs there. One trail I could see it being worth it, but frankly it doesn't seem worth dragging a DH bike to go there & I love Downhill over XC.

    Jungle is actually the only place i've found that is truly FUN on an XC bike (super tight, rocky, trees, speed, berms) Most of it is flat but there is a decent size hill on one side of the park. If I wasn't so worried about the mystical creatures roaming around, i'd probably do solo rides there.

    fenceline is down hill

    imho; fence line is downhill, enter park stay to right keep climbing past water tanks

    bring pads, its mucho rocky

    if you can't climb to meet your downhill fix, pay the two dollars and go to diablo, or windham ussually open in week ends

    or build one of these

    gcc had more bells and whistles, but camden county college was more rain friendly

    I solo there all the time, there are no creepy animals, besides the local highschool party population.

    I wouldnt recommend night rides, due to the MASSIVE amount of bears in the area . Im not joking either! As for the trails, they all link together into a nice 7 mile loop, with some new stuff that we ( team town cycle) just cut in, theres some pretty challenging stuff and sometimes its just good to get lost. All roads lead to rome at JH so if your ever lost find a road and stay on it !

    nite riding in the jungle


    some one posted aboout night riding at the jungle. it might be better to get familiar with the joint first as you may consider it small in size, but with its rocky nature, it could be dangerous. as this park in general is considered advanced by many (above a 'c' level anyway)

    that being said, if you couple it with the fact that it is a defunct animal park with eroded asphalt walkways, broken birdcages and abandoned dumb trucks, imho go in daylight a few times, then bring da lights
