United States Avenue Trail, which is also know locally as the "Green Trail" travels through a primarily wooded landscape between Foster Avenue and Egg Harbor Road in Gibbsboro, New Jersey. At the Foster Avenue end, the trail starts in front of the police station. For the convenience of trail users there's a bike rack here. The trail heads southeast to United States Avenue where it turns south. After crossing a driveway the trail enters the woods. The setback of the trail into the woods helps to separate trail users from the traffic along United States Avenue. Paying homage to the town's history, a set of rails has been left in place between the trail surface and the roadway. Gibbsboro's evolving off road trail network intersects the rail trail in several locations. The entrance to Lindenwold Memorial Park intersects the trail at about its midpoint. The park contains ball fields, concession stand, amphitheater, walking path and tot lot. The trail emerges from the woods and passes another congregation of athletic fields and a large parking area. The bike trail officially ends before crossing Egg Harbor Road. A sidewalk continues on the other side of Egg Harbor Road and is carried across an active railroad on a pedestrian bridge.

There's actually another part to this trail (not shown on the map)that extends for at least an additional mile and it's probably the best part of the trail. Although this may not be a trail worthy of a long trip, it's a great local trail.
