The Johnson Trolley Line has two sections, north and south, which are split by Interstate 95; there is talk of building an overpass to link the two segments. The Trenton-Princeton Traction Company ran the old trolley, known as the "Fast Line," through this corridor from around 1901 until 1940. The fare was only 10¢. The Johnson Trolley Line Trail occupies a portion of right-of-way abandoned by the former trolley company.
North Section: This section runs 1 mile through a tree-lined neighborhood, between Gordon Avenue and Denow Road. Just south of Gordon Road, you can access another trail to Village Park (to the northwest) or the Lawrenceville School path (southeast).
South Section: This section is just under 1 mile and follows a portion of Johnson Avenue from Shababunk Creet to I-95. A newly constructed section from Eggert's Crossing Road to I-95 now includes a bridge over Five Mile Run.

Regarding Fred's review.
Some people in Central New Jersey confuse the names of the Interstate Highways. When Fred write "I-195", what he means is "I-95", which is around the north of Trenton, not running East to Belmar, NJ.
