Dirt bike – Lake Atsion, Pine Barrens
This past weekend we went dirt biking at Lake Atsion, NJ which is in the Pine Barrens.
In case you didn’t know, you can legally ride dirt bikes in the pine barrens IF your bike is street legal / registered / insured.
If you’re driving a truck, park at the Atsion ranger station. It’s okay and legal to park at that spot. There are good trails on both sides of rt206, especially the south side of the lake. It’s not too sandy in this area either which is great. It’s not like riding on a beach. It’s more solid dirt trails with some sand over top. Lots of single track trails with good whoops. My only complaint is there aren’t any hills. Other than that, it was a ton of fun. And it’s only 45 min away which makes it a great spot to do a day-trip if you’re coming from Philly.
So make a mental note, if you’re looking for a legal place to ride, that’s not too far away, with tons of trails, Atsion Lake area is a great option.
Lot’s of people got wet feet yesterday.

This isn’t my favorite loop, but it’s still good to do every now and then. Basically take whatever route you want to get down towards the airport, then ride Fort Mifflin Rd. behind the airport. It’s a good road. You can go nice and fast and race planes like you’re in Top Gun.
