Well the southern trails are better in the late fall / winter so i could see that. Slick rock isn’t as much fun with wet leaves in my opinion. But the fall temps are pretty awesome and allow you to go longer. I know most of the trails in the area and am a slower rider. Blue Mountain in Peekskill is probably my favorite, and still out of my league. If you want a tour of a place let me know. I was hoping to meet some hoboken locals at the Jorba event.

I am down at Hartshorne/Huber though I would like to try out Ringwood sometime soon. I prefer late fall/winter riding.

I have been riding Ringwood more lately. It is surprisingly close. Not sure how familiar you are with Ramapo Mtn, but if you ride after work, there is a pretty nice loop you can do there. It takes about 45 minutes to get there even with rush hour traffic.
