bad trail

Really bad one. Not for bike at all. There’s no sign where to go except for the entrance. Easily get lost. Don’t go!

Johnson Trolley Line Trail

Difficult to find

Used the directions from the app & we couldn’t find Southern trail head. Then followed directions to Northern trail which was a very short, disappointing trail.

Freedom Trail Bikeway

Closed Section Now Open (Again)

May, 2020 by railtrail56

When I first rode this trail in Spring 2019 I took the paved section from Monmouth Junction to Stouts Lane. Nice trail but so short at 1.35 miles. I couldn’t go any further across Stouts Lane as there was some sci-fi-looking installation blocking the right of way. Damn, I thought! Now I see that it was a toxic waste cleanup. That kept me from riding there for a year. This past March I decided to give it another shot since it passes through nice woods, it’s got a flat paved surface and it’s less than a half hour from home. Much to my delight I found that the section across Stouts Lane is now open! On my first ride I missed this fact. On the second visit I pushed on across Stouts and saw that the sci-fi installation had been removed and it’s possible to ride through those beautiful woods. There’s hardly ever anyone on that section, too, while the paved one can get quite populated at times. I still love it, though. So, now I can get a full 5-mile round trip from the Monmouth Junction lot to Route 1 and back. Still a bit short for me, but it’s great on weekday afternoons for a relatively short out and back ride. If I repeat either section I can push that to 7 miles and it only adds about 15 minutes...good for getting some outdoor time and then back to my desk. We just now need that darn bridge over Route 1! That would effectively connect Monmouth Junction with the D&R Canal to either New Brunswick or Trenton, and up the Delaware River to Frenchtown. There’s already such a structure several miles north on the Middlesex Greenway Rail-trail in Woodbridge, which jumps the tail over Route 1. South Brunswick needs to get this project done as it would be a great benefit to all trail users, especially their residents.

Old Croton Aqueduct Trail

Easy Trail Close to NYC

May, 2020 by kristibiglin

We only walked a small section of the trail starting in Dobbs Ferry. The OAC is lined with trees and has plenty of shade. It’s wide enough to keep social distancing (important these days). There are beautiful homes to look at along the walk. Great for city people who just want to make a day trip.

Saddle River County Park Bike Path

favorite bike path

Great scenic path, well maintained. Could get really busy on the weekends but still beats riding in the street. By far my favorite path in jersey.

D&L Trail

Morrisville, PA Water Tower - Levittown Parkway

May, 2020 by bikerjo2231

Nice, quiet and flat ride along the canal. First time riding this portion. Unfortunately, saw trash in the canal including soccer balls, basketballs, diapers, red stool with a yellow seat, plastic bags, styrofoam containers and other debris. It wasn't a lot of trash but just enough to sully the view of the canal. Could have been blown in by storms but some of it looked like it was placed there by humans. Positive side: peaceful with cool-looking large turtles and ducks :) There are probably volunteers that work very hard to take care of this part of the trail. If I could have somehow fished out the trash, I would have done so to help them out!
