    Ringwood State Park Hours Changing Nov 4

    Just reminding everyone that the Ringwood State Park closes at 6 pm starting Nov 4. Please make sure that your cars are not parked in park lots after 6:00 pm. Park police will lock gates at 6, so if you do not want to be locked in, have cars out before 6:00. If you think you may run late, park at Ryerson or top of Skyline to avoid this situation.

    Also bow hunting is underway. Small game starts Nov 9. So expect to see hunters in the woods and dress accordingly. No hunting in state parks on Sundays. Deer firearm is Dec 9-14. Parks are still open, but you will see many hunters that week. I would recommend riding in a county park that week if possible.

    Thanks!

    ^GOOD ADVICE! Deer don't wear orange (or red or yellow), so you should.

    The specifics of deer hunting season can be found here (regulation set 8 applies for Ringwood): http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/pdf...gsets13-14.pdf

    I guess its important to realize that deer hunting season spans between Sept 14 and Feb 8. It may be a muzzle-loader, rifle, shotgun or bow. In my experience, hunter presence drops substantially by Dec 31, because there just aren't as many bow-hunters. But, still good to wear bright colors.

    Just curious...Are there other "county parks" in the area that allow MTBs besides Lewis Morris and Mahlon Dickerson Reservation?
