Ride description:

Parking information - Start at Southard Park - Ride with GPS does not seem to know its a road..

The ride goes through the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. As this wildlife refuge was planned to be the largest jetport in the world in the 1960's we will ride though what was to be the main terminal just after Green Village. I also heard that the Watchung Mountains we going to be used for the fill needed to level the swamp. Some history regarding the creation of the Great Swamp as a preserved parkland be found on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MORmPSkE8AM. 

The ride has some climbs but only listed as 1194ft of vertical overall.
