Hikers rock the trails at Ringwood

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Set in Passaic and Bergen counties is Ringwood State Park. The trails, which can be seen on this map courtesy of the Jersey Off Road Bicycle Assocation (JORBA), range from easy to advanced and on Sunday we chose the hilly, swampy, and rocky ones.

We took the Ringwood-Ramapo Trail from Ringwood Manor to Shepherd Lake, where we enjoyed water-ice and Gatorade from a snack stand. I was quite surprised when we popped out of the woods to find a thriving beach with boat rentals, lifeguards and even people flying kites. On the way back we explored some heavy machinery in the middle of the woods and even found a tree with a bit of an evil smiling face on it.

We explored just a small portion of a great park and I look forward to the next time I go back.
