    New Brunswick Area Rides

    I'm going to be in New Brunswick for a few days next week and wanted to know if there is any nice single track within a reasonable distance? I will be tied up until about 5pm, so I would rather not have to run to far.

    Thanks

    Six Mile. Or you can hop out 287 and hit Chimney Rock. But I'd go to Six Mile.
    I love my mtb. It helps me see the world in beautiful colors. Like brown, blue, brown, blue, brown, blue...

    Is six mile pretty easy to figure out?

    I've been there twice, so I don't exactly have it wired, but it doesn't seem too hard to find your way around. You could try looking at the review. Also, check out the thread 'Great ride at Six Mile.' Several of the guys posting in that thread know the trails there very well.

    don't forget the RU preserve - it ain't the best, but it's right across the river in piscataway.

    i live 1 mile from new brunswick in somerset - chimney isn't too far, six mile is close, the sourlands (my favorite in the area) is a bit further, but well worth the trip. if you get out at five, you can easily do all of these before the sun goes down at this point in the year.

    i think its 9 miles in total. if you are leaving at around 5, the roads will be pretty backed up. i go one of two ways - easton ave to 287N to 22E or easton ave right through south bound brook and bound brook. generally, i think the 287N route is the lesser of two evils at rush hour(s).

    check out the trail directory at www.mtbnj.com, and you will be able to get trail maps, gps info and driving directions to the trails you were asking about. you should also check in with Halter's Cycles (732-329-9022) for 6-Mile information. JDog and his crew maintain and ride those trails, and they have a fantastic shop, to boot.
