Allamuchy Pond Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Allamuchy State Park, with its 12 miles of forest roads and singletrack, is a place worth seeking out. Riding is a mixed bag, including everything from easy cruising on well-graded forest roads to challenging opportunities on an equal number of singletrack. A convenient network of old farm and lumber roads winds through this secluded and relatively unknown New Jersey State Park, only 50 miles from Manhattan, providing a pleasant mountain biking experience for riders of all levels. Plenty of hills and lively singletracks challenge the average hammerhead, with as much cruising material to go around for the less technically inclined. A wide, hard-packed forest road penetrates the Allamuchy forest and ends at Deer Park Pond just 4 miles later. Several other trails head off into the woods and pass through more densely forested habitat."
--Michael Margulis, Mountain Biking Eastern New York (Falcon Guides).
"Whether the quarry is birds, the backwoods, or beautiful bodies of water, Allamuchy has what it takes to make your outing a success. In fact, the combination of a wild, untended woodland with countless streams, several swamps, and a couple of lakes adds up to an environment that birds find irresistible. A good many hikers do, too, what with the miles of trails that snake through an underpopulated backcountry."
