The 2.8-mile eastern phase of the Bedminster Hike and Bikeway allows pedestrians and cyclists to safely traverse part of Bedminster Township by crossing over I-287 and US 206/202 via a series of three bridges. The trail runs between The Hills development and River Road Park and links residential areas with schools, business districts and parks.
Begin on the corner of Main and Elm streets in Bedford village (near the "Old School") and follow the trail past the elementary school to Miller Lane Park. From here, the trail follows the Albert Winkler/Herbert Snyder Nature Trail, goes around the pond and heads for River Road Park, ending at Robertson Drive.
Along the trail you will find more than 40 species of trees and perennial plants, which are marked with signs for identification.
