    On a good day with route planned you can get 4, maybee 5 miles out of it, then you can just go down to vorhees since it's only like 10-minutes away via car. So it makes for a good day of riding. Teetertown Ravine is in Califon, NJ, where the trails may be short, what there is there provides a pretty good challenge climb wise.

    Shhhhhhhhhhh!!

    I thought I was the only one who rode there....

    Teetertown is a nice break if from roads if you live in the area, but not really worth driving to with so much else around. The trail system is short, but if you like hills, it's all on the side of a ridge so it's got plenty. You can get a nice ride if you do a few loops. Plus it's really scenic. Supposedly the highest point in Hunterdon County is up there somewhere.

    The nice thing about Teetertown is that you can easily get there from the Columbia trail - it's just a mile or so of road riding to get there from Vernoy Ave and 513 (via Maple Ave). The hills are a nice change from cruising along the rail trail.

    If you frequent the Columbia Trail, detours to Voorhees and Schooley's Mountain are also recommended! I rode down to High Bridge on Sunday and came into Voorhees the back way, along Buffalo Hollow Rd. Quite a workout and lots of fun riding the hill down 513 back into town.

    Blue Trail?

    I rode through Teetertown a couple weeks ago with my son and a friend of ours, mostly to break up a road ride. We went down the blue trail, which is perfectly rideable even though the park trail map does say "hiking only". There's really not much there if you skip that. Others ride the blue trail too?

    Teetertown

    This place is practically in my back yard. It is short, but it's great for about 5-6 miles of decently technical terrain if I don't want to drive somewhere. Its like a small sample of Allamuchy. There are a couple steep sections both fun to descend and difficult to climb, some rocky areas, some fast areas and a stream crossing or two. In the summer, it has its own micro climate. Its always 5-10 degrees colder by the stream than at the top of the mountain (where I live) The park commission has bought a few hundred more acres to add to this park, but there are no trails there yet. As far as the blue trail, I ride it all the time. If anyone wants to meet up for a quick ride, let me know.
