The singletrack is a loop of about 7 miles. This access is shorter than the parking lot off Long Meadow Rd.

And what a fine singletrack this loop is! We are so fortunate to have a venue such as this so accessible to a railhead.

Might I suggest either doing a loop around the Sterling Lake, out of the western parking lot access, or combine it with mountain biking in Ringwood, catching the train back in Ramsey? 

Remember that though the outbound train is an express out of Hoboken, or change to that train from NY Penn Station at Secaucus Junction, the inbound train is infrequent, with a long wait at Sloatsburg if you don't get it right.

Do note that though the ride level is C for access, the actual singletrack is not an easy.
