Ringwood, NJ

So I as up by the Botanical Gardens/Skyline Manor in Ringwood NJ yesterday (Sunday) and saw an XJ wheeling there. I know you need a permit but I cannot find ANY information on how to obtain one. I mountain bike up there almost every weekend (when there isn't snow I'm normally Hiking) and would love to get my hands on a permit.

TIA
Phil

I was up there fishing last spring and flagged down a ranger on the trail and asked him. He gave me a phone number to call and said have a nice day. The number didn't ring, it just went straight to voice mail. I left a bunch of messages and never heard back. I'd be more than happy to purchase a permit if someone would call me back, but until then...

If you're looking at it from a wheeling standpoint don't waste your time or money. I've done pretty much every trail there in a stock XJ with bald street tires and I only needed 4WD in a couple spots. There's absolutely nothing that could remotely be considered challenging. Ten years ago was a different story but after they closed it they practically paved all the trails for the bikers and hikers.

^^good info, I was just looking for something fun to do with the jeep while up there.

How is the fishing, I actually read a couple threads down (link to it in a min) if you buy a fishing permit you can get a permit to wheel there too.

EDIT

Found it:

The gates are only open 8am-8pm which kinda stinks cuz i like off roading at night haha but i mean hey its legal. You can follow the cable cut path forever lol

The fishing is pretty good. Lots of bass and pickerel. There's a lot of ponds scattered around, and of course bear swamp lake. I avoid Shepard's Lake because it's too crowded. I don't want to blow up my spots on the net for all to see, but email or pm me I can give you an idea of where to look. Get a NJ fishing license. That's easy ticket money for the rangers. When I was up there the ranger didn't even didn't seem to care at all that I drove up there but he was insistent on seeing my license (it was in the truck a few yards away)

I had no idea there was a b&t in ringwood. There used to be Ringwood Bait & Tackle in the shopping center g-wood lake tpk between the boat launches but that closed years ago. I'll have to go up there one day and ask them.

Yeah.. bad idea . If you're on the pipeline on the other side of RSP, you're asking for trouble. In years past, It used to be low key. If you encountered an officer and you were just up there riding responsibly and not being a jack *** shooting, drinking, dumping or burning stuff, they would tell you to have fun. Then one person told another person, that person told 2 of his buddies, one of them posted a thread on his local board, and the next thing you know half the state was up there in groups of 20-30 rigs every single weekend. Fun's over.
