The Loantaka Brook bike-share comes courtesy of the Morris Park Alliance, working with donors Atlantic Health/Morristown Medical Center, the Community Foundation of New Jersey, and Delta Dental. 

It is a pilot program.  A portion of the user fee will be returned to the Alliance and used for trail maintenance at the park.

Richie’s Deli across from the County Stables

There are three Zagster bike-shares in Morris County.  The others are at the Funplex in East Hanover, and at Estling Village in Denville.

Back in Greater Morristown, if you’ve forgotten picnic provisions, no worries.  Right outside the entrance to the Seton Hackney Stables area of Loantaka Brook Reservation is Richie’s Deli.  Handier than ever now that you have a bike.
