Dennis Township Bike Path

24 miles from start to Cape May Point Lighthouse State Park

October, 2023 by tjfogelberg

I biked 2 miles South (Corson Tavern Road) from the Thousand Trails Lake and Shore campground (Oceanview) to the northern most trailhead and continued on to the Cape May Point Lighthouse State Park. What a great 24 mile ride! Very little interaction with cars. 100% paved (recent). This trail interacts with Middle Township and Cold Spring trail. Worth looking for...it was a bit tricky to find the trail heads. There was limited parking at a few of the trailheads. No restrooms on trail but I did see a few convenience stores along the way and also a city park (Railroad Avenue Park) closer to Cape May that had a bike station, drinking fountain and portable toilet.

Dennis Township Bike Path

Nice narrow bike path

September, 2023 by joenad55

This was just completed in the last couple of years. A bit narrower than what I like to jog on, but this part goes all the way to the county line. The trees are set far back, which means this is in the sun most of the day. Would recommend going out early or late in the day. Have to cross a couple of roads with light traffic, and then Rt 83. Connects to the trail in Middle Township at the county line.

Monroe Township Bike Path

Easy, shady ride for a hot day!

September, 2023 by xerna17

We ride this trail a few times a year. Its very straight, smooth and mostly flat. Just a few very slight inclines. From Rt. 47 you ride a good distance before there are any road crossings. After that there are a few but only one or two that have a lot of traffic. Most of the trail goes through mature woodlands that give a lot of shade. My only complaint is that there don't seem to be any public bathrooms on the trail or at the trailheads. Otherwise, this is an easy, pretty trail.


Barnegat Branch Trail

We started at the south end in Barnegat. We bikes the first 7 miles. There is a lot of opportunities between mile maker 2.5 and 3.5 to eat, drink, restroom.

Union Transportation Trail

Nice Crushed Stone Ride

August, 2023 by z4g9gshqpr

Parked at Working Dog Winery about a mile and a half from the north end trail head. Used my road bike which worked fairly well for the 20 miles round trip. Just be careful on turns if you are using a narrow tire. The crushed stone can make it a bit slippery. Trail is about 50/50 sun and shade with only one major road crossing which is quite nice. A great option for central jersey riders.

Union Transportation Trail

July Afternoon Ride

July, 2023 by kimcowan

We started at the parking lot at Sharon Station Rd and Herbert Rd. It's a large parking lot near the "8 mile" point. We started about 3:30pm and went south past the UTT parking lot at Millstream Rd. The trail continues about half mile past the parking lot. My bike computer indicated 9 miles at that end. Turned around and returned to the SS/H Rd parking lot for an 18 mile ride. There was more shade than we expected! Very pleasant ride except for several spots along the trail where the "ground" gravel has accumulated into areas that make for very soft spots (similar to riding through sand). We have mountain bikes/tires so we were fine. But those with thinner tires should try to avoid those soft areas.

We saw several people riding, running and walking. But it wasn'tWe too busy! There are several access points and several of them have porta potties. Other than Route 539, the roads you have to cross over were not busy. We'd definitely recommend this trail!

Trail at Route 42 Underpass Closed. New Extension May Be Coming Soon

July, 2023 by bcgp

The section of the trail under Route 42 is closed for construction until mid-2024 The highway bridges will be replaced with fill. A box culvert will carry the trail underneath.

Also, Gloucester Township may be getting ready to extend the trail northward to the Blackwood border. The project was put out to bid early this year but no word on when construction will start.

Sawmill Bike Path (NJ)

Love it!

June, 2023 by brie309

Used to go here all the time to walk my dog. Decent length for walking if you go back and forth. There’s parking and wide paths. Fun to bike but it’s not very long. Best for walking.

Elephant Swamp Trail

Cool and Shade Cover…

June, 2023 by sublime justice

Nice well maintained, shady and pleasant to ride… after a nice you have something wonderful to eat at the Lake House.

Middle Township Bike Path

Nice trail, great for a morning ride

May, 2023 by ebwoltz

Rode from Sun retreats cape may wildwood. Rode to the Cape May zoo (free to get in, nice break and has food), nice flat ride, not crowded, not a lot of scenery about 20 miles round trip. However a lack of trees for some shade, so I recommend an early morning ride or early evening ride, mid day is very hot. Also, would be nice for some benches along the way. Ride it every time I am down here. Overall I would recommend.
