WEST MILFORD, N.J. – The state no longer plans to turn a portion of the former Jungle Habitat property in West Milford into a revenue-generating mountain bike park, NorthJersey.com reports.

Instead, the full 800-acre site once owned by Warner Bros. will become incorporated into Norvin Green State Forrest, and activities like hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding will continue to be permitted, according to the article.

The Department of Environmental Protection sought bids to turn a portion of the former drive-through wild safari and theme park into a mountain bike park to generate money for the state.

But only one bid was received and it was rejected for lacking sufficient detail, the article says.
