Liberty State Park


I've seen on here a post where buggies are a problem for the park cops but I'm taking a landboard down there tomorrow. Hoping for the best. Any takers on joining me? Cheeze? Abkayak? Coming from Kingston so give me a shout...

Was thinking about you earlier. If you were doing something local I'd be game to join you.

You guys might want to try one of my spots in Orange County. It's basically the side of a hill (not much "flat" here as you know), but has enough flat-ish spots to be pretty good, I think. It's also enormous (for our area, anyway) and deserted aside from the occasional dog walker. Due to the elevation, the wind hits it pretty good, as well. I MTB there regularly when time permits.

41.24546, -74.33774

Grass gets tall in the summer, but gets hayed in August. Haven't been there in a few weeks, but the grass stays low until spring. It's rougher than a soccer field, but absolutely do-able, IMO.

Really? What did you think of it? I want to get into snowkiting but don't have the equipment yet. I thought that would be a great place to do that.

Wind was gusty , but all together ridable . You need a lot of snow to cover that grass , and extra power in a kite to go uphill ......

Kober, I agree...the grass at Berger Hill takes a lot of snow before its rideable ... A gusty North last year produced some precarious fun though...

weird they don't allow buggies but allow board. Why would that be?? At least they don't ban kites altogether.

Mark, this place has some serious promise for landboarding and Snowkiting! I'll get some pics or vid up to show ya when I get home. With my daughter in Secaucus, I'll be here often:)
As for yesterday, wind was about 12-14 but WNW isn't best...it'll be off the water with anything S or SE and much cleaner. Plenty of open space but the Tough Mudder Adventure Race took over the entire place both Saturday and today. Bummer, but if you can make a Monday afternoon and sleep over in Secaucus for some Tuesday action you'd be welcome to come along. Very easy to get to as its right off the NJTP at 14B.

We could get some great rides on a board here for sure! So sick of the rude gusty punch me in the face wind I've been dealing with on Esopus Ave~~~
