|Ramapo Mountain - Mountain Bike Trail Review with Map and Pictures|
|Directions - 287 to Skyline drive, Park at the
lot on top, if you can find a space!
Description - The infamous G-string has been telling me to check out Ringwood / Ramapo for some time now. Not sure what my excuse is, its almost too close to home for a trip? Tapanzee traffic Anxiety? In any case, finally pulled the trigger and had a great ride following the suggested route from Jorba. There had to be 100 cars in the lot when we arrived yet only saw a few people on the trail. Headed out red white to cannonball trail switchbacks. Great rock lines, singletrack, technical.. Switchbacks were moderately challenging, and really nicely laid out. We pedaled up the road to see the Castle Ruins - very cool site with nice views! Even a nice double foundation rock skinny with view to a kill.. Sweet.. Down white to gas line, look for somewhat un-marked trail (faint red dot), takes you to blue to Orange. Orange was a mixed bag, Mainly crappy ATV rutted double, 5 or so hike a bikes, BUT awesome ridge line section with amazing top of the world view.. Yellow on the way back home was awesome, nice technical climb, had some teeny jumps pointing the other way..
