Landsdown Trail & Capoolong Creek
Directions from Flemington:
Rt 31 N to the jug handle north of I-78. Take the overpass over Rt 31 and follow the signs for the business area of Clinton. Proceed past the traffic light for Leigh Street. 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.
This trail is a hidden gem. 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. You can actually ride a few miles past Pittstown. If time allows be sure to stop and read some of the historical signs about the area.
The town of Clinton is a wonderful place to explore the shops and restaurants and The Red Mill Museum is a wonderful destination if time allows.
