Mountain bikers hit up the Six Mile Run Reservoir, Feltville

SOMERSET – Up the hill, round the bend, over the hump, watch the bump.

Bicycle fun

I couldn’t think of a better view for a Sunday afternoon than from the seat of my bike at Six Mile Run in Somerset.

That is the experience you will find mountain biking the Six Mile Run Reservoir in New Jersey’s Delaware Raritan Canal State Park. This Sunday we found the trails well maintained, challenging and thoroughly enjoyable.

Small bridges took us over streams, and a wooden ramp took us over a swampy grassy area. We found plenty of fellow mountain bikers – even one who helped us find our way when we got lost.

Don’t be deceived by the name Six Mile Run, the trails are nearly endless. Check out the map on the Jersey Off Road Bicycle Association’s (JORBA) website.

After the three hour ride, we hit up IHOP and then stopped by the deserted Village of Feltville in Union County’s Watchung Reservation. The dilapidated homes are reminiscent of a different time.

I can’t wait until the next ride!

Olde time home in Feltville

This dilapidated home wastes away in the Village of Feltville.
