Road trip - 6 Mile Reservoir!
We're giving you a bit of advanced notice on this one, as it is a bit of a road trip - but totally worth it!
Saturday, October 29, we're headed south with our mountain bikes to Six Mile Reservoir off of Route 27 in Somerset, NJ. A little more than 1 hour south of West Milford, Six Mile is a JORBA maintained area within the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park, with lots of flowing, fast, well groomed trails. Not a ton of climbing, not as technical as our parks up north here - a great chance to check out a completely different type of riding! The Delaware and Raritan Canal Rail Trail is part of this park - great for the kiddies - bring them along too!
We'll meet at 9:30 a.m. at parking lot on Canal Road, just south of intersection with Blackwells Mill Rd in Franklin Twp. We’ll be riding by 10 and done approximately 1:00 p.m. There is not tons of parking, so please car pool if you can.
Rain will cancel - check our blog, Facebook or Twitter page for updates!
More info? Trail maps are here , JORBA info here, Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park info here, Google map here. JORBA just did one of their group rides there this past weekend, and all who attended thought it was a super fun place to ride! If you can't make it this weekend, we'll definitely plan another trip over the next few months - it'll be a good winter destination ride!
