    New question here. Mills Reservation

    Hello,

    I'm just starting to get back into riding after 8 or 9 years of not. I've moved a few times in that timespan, and now I'm looking for some trails. I used to live out near Morristown, and there are lots of trails out that way. Now I'm in Belleville, and there's not so much that's not paved around here. Is Mills Reservation in Montclair/Cedar Grove/Verona any good? I used to live on my bike, but now I'm pretty out of shape. Would Mills be a bad idea? I did some searching, nothing came up on it surprisingly.

    Thanks for your input, and I look forward to spending lots of time here.

    I think xtrpureguts mentioned Mills to me. Maybe PM him and ask? It sounded pretty good.

    hey jim. glad to hear that you'e getting on the bike. officially, the Mills Reservation is not open to biking. same goes for Eagle Rock and South Mountain. i know that people ride there anyway but i do not recommend it. there has been progress on other fronts that may lead to the possibility of these places opening up, but for now, i would stay away.

    Thanks for the info. I guess I will head over to the West Essex Trail instead. Doesn't look like it's as interesting, but probably a little easier for me at this point anyway.

    Thanks
