Easy trail, fun. Not to be ridden fast. One of the best in NJ.

Lots of walkers on this path make it to be great for those that are willing to be considerate bikers. Otherwise, its a great flat and easy trail. Be prepared to see lots of young children biking and joggers. I liked how the trail followed the river and more
