Biking Along the Columbia Trail

Join us for a 30-mile scenic ride along the Columbia Trail, an abandoned RR bed. Trail surface is crushed stone and flat. Enjoy some excellent views of Ken Lockwood Gorge and beautiful farmlands. We will 'mix it up' and start in Long Valley and begin our ride on the newly up-graded trail to Bartley Road, loop back to LV to continue to High Bridge and return. Keep your eyes peeled for the TROLLS. There are no concessions along the route; bring snacks, lunch, water, patch kit/extra tube, and a hybrid/mountain bike. Helmet is mandatory! Rain cancels. Meet at 10:00am. Trail parking is directly across the road from Somerset Hills Bank, 24 Schooley's Mountain Road, Long Valley [GPS coordinates for the parking lot: N[masked]; W074.78037] Above Photo by Shawn Patel

If lot is full, there is additional parking adjacent to the bank's parking lot.

Optional after-hike refreshment stop at local eatery.

    Thank you all for another wonderful day outdoors. The weather was less than desirable but that didn't discourage this crew and we completed the entire 31 miles. You guys are tough! As always a fun day with a fantastic group - looking forward to many future adventures with you all.

    Thanks, Terry, for another great ride. The rain threatened us, and then arrived with a passion; but our spirits prevailed and soon vanquished the rain and left us with a memorable biking day.

    I was looking forward to Pizza with everyone however I arrived back at Long Valley trailhead at 1:50pm. Since I was 10 miles ahead of the group when we met at Califon I am assuming I would have an hour and a half wait for everyone to return. Hope everyone had a fun ride despite the rain.

    I can not enjoy the bike ride with you tomorrow. I have an out-of-state funeral that I must attend.

    Just noticed that I made it off the waiting list but I have already made plans for a hike with friends up in Delaware Water Gap.

    Sorry I will not be able to attend biking on Sunday.
    I hope that makes room for someone else.

    For some reason, I thought it was 20 miles. I am not yet able to do 30.
