      This trail system is great for a workout. Long, hard climbs are rewarded with flowing, old-school singletrack.

      TRAIL SAFETY
      No restroom facilities, drinking water, or telephones currently exist on the mountain, so please plan accordingly. Observe the trailhead you use to access the trails. The map identifies several landmarks and physical structures to help with orienting yourself on the mountain. We recommend that you carry a phone with you during your visit. In case of an emergency, dial 9-1-1. Do not block emergency access gates. Hunting is permitted to an approved, limited number of individuals on the mountain. If your visit is during a hunting season please wear bright colors, or plan your visit for a Sunday when hunting is not permitted. Motorized All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) or dirt bikes are not permitted on the trail system. VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED.

      Access Info:

      Disclaimer:
      PLEASE RESPECT THE MANY PRIVATE PROPERTY BOUNDARIES WITHIN THE PRESERVE MARKED IN RED ON THE OVERVIEW MAP.
      PLEASE OBEY SIGNAGE AND DO NOT RIDE UNSANCTIONED TRAILS.

      TRAIL ETHICS
      Treat the land that the trail crosses and its neighbors with respect and care. All hikers and cyclists should keep to the trail’s defined footway; shortcuts cause erosion, damage sensitive plants; confuse other hikers, and may violate property rights. By leaving little or no trace of your presence, you help preserve the mountain for future enjoyment.

      Trail building is strictly prohibited. Prior to Berks Nature Trails' involvement, a majority of Neversink Mountain was privately owned. Fourteen private homes and properties still exist on the mountain so please respect our neighbors and their private property.
