Mountain Bike Festival
August 20-22, 2021
The Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation is located in the center of 3 trail systems; Allamuchy North, Stephens, and Deer Park. All 3 offer a unique experience as well as terrain for all levels of rider. The camp has a huge lake with docks and floating iceberg. The campsites are vast and serene. They offer campers the choice between solitude and camaraderie. The showers and bathrooms are modern. All this and your only minutes from Rt. 80 and dining/shopping options.
Starting Friday afternoon Cranks offers guided group rides for all levels of riders. Saturday and Sunday the group ride sessions offer options into all three parks for all levels of riders. Ride leaders are all locals and are sure to show you the best trails for your riding level. We welcome mtb legend Jeff Lenosky for two of his signature Trail Boss rides as well! Also, don't forget your lights! We'll have night rides too!
Kids get their own program at Cranks. We offer multiple activities throughout the weekend. Your kids will get a mini summer camp experience at one of the premier Scout camps in NJ. Activities include swimming, climbing the iceberg, hiking, crafts, fishing, smores at the campfire, and more. The icing on the cake is Saturday and Sunday morning during the group rides these activities are offered during group rides. Parents can sign in their kids (4yrs+) at the dining hall for an action packed morning of activities while you enjoy your ride!
