A History Lesson Along a Scenic Trail

During the summer of 2017, I ran and/or rode my mountain bike along the entire trail (including Bordentown) twice. While it's so surprise that Frenchtown to Washington Crossing is a favorite among many reviewers, don't neglect the beauty of the trail from New Brunswick to Trenton. The trail is in very good shape overall, with some spots being in better shape than

Great Valley Rail Trail

Great Valley is Quiet Oasis

September, 2017 by hal.snik

Wide lightly trafficked rail trail that is great for a walk, easy hike, trail run or easy mountain bike ride. While the trail is wide, in some parts it is merely a footpath in the grass. Part of a loop that spans over 13 miles. Bug spray is recommended.

Black River Wildlife Management Area Trail

Attack of the No-See-Ums

September, 2017 by carol vaughn

On foot, at even a moderately fast pace, I was besieged by no-see-ums the entirety of the trail. Stagnant water abounds next to this trail so this is not surprising. They were attacking my face like something out of a Game of Thrones battle. (I think I saw one riding a tiny tiny dragon the size of a mosquito - or maybe they had just driven me stark raving mad by that point.) The only way to be free of them was to wave my hands in front of my face or run faster than they could keep up with me. I saw no one else on foot but saw several bicyclists. I think either running or bicycling is definitely the way to go on this trail.

Henry Hudson Trail

Southern section: Very nice trail (not as good as others )

September, 2017 by andrew012651

Rode today (9/5/17) from Stillwell St in Matawan to Freehold- and back. 26 miles. The trail is paved with several root bumps (not marked by yellow spray paint like a lot of NYS trails) so be prepared for a jolt if you're looking at the scenery and not at the trail. Scenery too great at start. Electrical towers parallel the trail for awhile its gets much nicer in Morganville in Marlboro. After 5 miles the trail ends. Took rt 79 left onto Newman Springs Rd. That's about 1.5 or 1.75 miles until I picked up trail in Big Brook Park. No trail markers that I saw at Kozloski rd to pick up trail but you can- just follow paved path. Trail ends after another 5.5 miles or so (from Big Brook Park) at East Main in Freehold. A quarter mile or so down East Main I had a slice of pizza at Stefano's. Rode another half mile to 68 South St (where Springsteen lived) and rode back. Faster on return trip. Several grade crossing and some on really busy streets. All in all, very nice. Not as good as several trails in Westchester and Rockland NY. Or Sandy Hook. Less root bumps than Northern section of the HH trail.
