This network of multi-use trails was petitioned for, procured, designed, constructed and is maintained by the Valley Mountain Bikers.

Salisbury township's Walking Purchase Park, affectionately known to the locals as "Sals" is a wonderfully flowing network of technically advanced singletrack. The perimeter of trails totals roughly 10+ miles of well designed and maintained singletrack.

Riders will encounter rocky sections during climbs and descents, interspersed with smooth and flowy sections. One of the strengths of this network is the excellent use of the land to facilitate a beautiful flow not commonly found. Elevation gains are perpetually linked with fun descents.

Any number of smaller looping rides can be ridden simply by using the inner Red trail as the nucleus of the loops. Advanced riders won't want to miss the Boulder Trail, the name says it all. Experienced intermediates can finish the outer perimeter in about 90 minutes to 2 hours. Advanced riders typically finish the outer loop in 60-90 minutes.
