Pemberton Rail-Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Located about 25 miles east of Philadelphia, the Pemberton Rail-Trail is an excellent example of grassroots activism resulting in the creation of a community-based rail-trail. The Pemberton Rotary Club was largely responsible for creating the trail, having taken the leadership role in planning, developing and maintaining the trail.

The trail begins at Hanover Street by a restored railroad station that serves as a museum. Several old train cars and assorted other railroad artifacts are found here. The trail is wooded on both sides and crosses a stream at about the midpoint.

Parking and Trail Access

From the north, take the NJ Turnpike to Route 206; then take County Route 530 East into South Pemberton. Take a left (north) onto Hanover Street. Follow this for about 0.5 miles and you'll see an old passenger station on the left. Park here where it is approved and safe.

"This is a great trail for a pleasant short bike ride or walk. If you like historic trains and RR artifacts, this trail offers these as a bonus. It would be even greater once the planned expansion is approved and realized." read more
