Atlantic County Bikeway

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The 7.5-mile Atlantic County Bikeway offers a relaxing escape from the crush of traffic surrounding Atlantic City, the beachfront gaming and resort town. The trail is situated 9 miles west of Atlantic City, near the nexus of the heavily traveled Atlantic City Expressway and the Garden State Parkway. Quieter two-lane roads paralleling each end of the bikeway provide convenient trail access.

Wide swaths of mowed grass flank the clean, well-designed trail. Strategically planted trees provide a welcome buffer from the roads, and the 15 secondary road crossings are clearly marked for trail users and motorists. The trail periodically curves around utility poles, incorporating overhead electric lines into the design.

Starting at the Shore Mall, the trail passes through a corridor of trees. About 0.5 mile from the start, the trail runs between Reega Avenue to the north and West Jersey Avenue to the south. The adjoining landscape is a mixture of residential neighborhoods and undeveloped woodlands. A few benches make great rest spots, but places to stock up on supplies are scarce. Be sure to bring your own food and water.

Parking and Trail Access

The eastern trailhead is at the north side of the Shore Mall parking lot. From Atlantic City follow SR 322/40 (Black Horse Pike) west toward the Garden State Parkway. Cross under the parkway and turn left into the Shore Mall. Turn right and follow the outside lane of the parking lot to the north side and look for designated Atlantic County Bikeway parking.

The western section of the trail lies between the east- and west-running sides of Atlantic Avenue. The trailhead is between Atlantic Avenue and at the intersection of 19th Street. Follow Atlantic Avenue west to reach the trailhead. Parking is available on the south side of the 19th and Atlantic intersection.

There is additional parking just east of Mays Landing at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and English Creek Avenue.


An exercise trail, not scenic

It is a pleasant ride, and I find it more engaging to ride the parallel back roads out to Mays Landing. There is not much traffic. Going east from the Pleasantville trailhead, there are signs that take you to either the westbound Somers Point trail (which more

Good for exercise, not scenery

We liked this ride. We did this trail down to the end (ACIT) and back. It's a nice paved path, well-marked road crossings, and the local drivers are actually nice about stopping to let you cross in the crosswalks. It's not very scenic, as pretty much more

I never give out one star so with that said I will give you my thoughts on this trail. I drove over from Wilmington De and did four trails in one day, just a little over 40 miles. It was not the best Weather day but I had a nice day. This trail is more more
