Landsdown Trail & Capoolong Creek

12 miles
Trail Route

This 12 mile trail is a hidden gem. The trailhead is located between the Cyrus Fox Lumber Company and the former Clinton Global Ag on the left. Parking is available in the lot by Fox Lumber or on the road itself.

The Landsdowne Trail offers a smooth and easy ride along beautiful scenery. After 1.5 miles, the trail crosses the road and the single and double track trails that continue are beginner mountain biking friendly. There are a couple of spots that are rooty and rocky, so proceed with caution. There are a couple of road crossings as well connecting the trail heads. If time allows be sure to stop and read some of the historical signs about the area.

Before or after your ride, the Town of Clinton is a wonderful place to explore shops and restaurants, the iconic Red Mill Museum, or Hunterdon Art Museum. The local bicycle shop, Clinton Bicycle Shop, LLC is located along the Raritan River.

Farmland Ride (Oct 15-18)

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the organizers to "reimagine" the THIRD annual in-person ride through the picturesque farmlands of Hunterdon County on October 18, 2020 (originally scheduled for 6/14/2020). They will instead host a Farmland Virtual Challenge Ride, which will take place over the weekend of October 16-18.
