Best Illegal Mountain Biking New York 2001 - South Mountain Reservation

Imagine almost 20 miles of classic Eastern single-track-narrow, wooded, rocky, rooted trails carved into the sides of steep little microhills—only 12 miles from the Empire State Building. Sounds like a mountain biker's nirvana? Nirvana, yes, but Kurt Cobain's dead. You see, mountain biking in New Jersey's SOUTH MOUNTAIN RESERVATION is illegal, banned by a turn-of-the-last-century law designed to keep horse carriages out of the county's parks, and newly enforced after complaints by a group of cranky Sierra Clubbers. Can you still ride it? Let your conscience (or a friendly fellow desperado) be your guide. But don't tell the cops we sent you. South Orange Avenue and Cherry Lane, West Orange, New Jersey.
