Description: and "Deer Park". The former is accessed by 2 main parking areas: ''Tranquility'' near the Farm Stand on Route 517 or ''Sussex Branch Parking'' on Waterloo Road. The latter is accessed by parking on Deer Park Road (more details below). Both areas are distinct from one another: the north side (so named because its north of Interstate 80) is considered ''advanced terrain'', while Deer Park is considered a very good place for energetic beginners and intermediates.

This trail is maintained by JORBA. Check out all the great work they do here
Jersey Off Road Bicycle Association (JORBA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which is dedicated to serving off road cyclists as a member of equal standing within the trail user community. Founded in 1999, our focus is to build and maintain sustainable multi-use trails, organize and encourage volunteerism and responsibility, and advocate and foster mountain biking as a healthy, environmentally sound, and sustainable activity.
This is a common story about how advocates are born:
A long, long time ago, a local mountain biker decided to get involved with local park when rumors swirled that the beloved trail network was soon to be closed. At the time, this person had no no idea that volunteers were the main force maintaining the trails because after all, everyone assumes that paid park maintenance personnel did trail work. After spending time helping the volunteer led maintenance group, it became apparent that this participation had a positive effect on the park and the quality of the trails. Fast forward to present day, and you might recognize that person now as the old sage, the crew leader, mentoring others to maintain trails to high degree of quality. In addition, this participation by the group, led by that advocate, born years before from a crisis, has gained the respect of the land manager, fellow trails users and the threat of closure is a distant memory.
You can have a similar effect; all you have to do is reach out to us. We are always looking for more friendly, like minded, eager to assist people to make positive changes throughout the state. You don't necessarily have to participate in trail maintenance to do that. We are looking for leaders, writers, researchers and folks with varying talents to help us further the sport of mountain biking in New Jersey. Below you will find a list of our activities and volunteer requests, maybe something in there will spark your interest...we hope so.
