Saucon Rail Trail

Nice trail; Spring wildflowers in full bloom

May, 2017 by cmaylward

I rode the trail on 5/20/17 starting at Hellertown's Water Street Park to East Landis St. in Coopersburg, and back again (approx 14 miles). Nice flat, wide trail, packed cinder. Lovely spring day with wildflowers in bloom all along the trail. Water Street Park is nice starting point with lots of parking and public restroom. Since there is a slight 1% grade uphill heading south, the return ride heading back north was just a bit easier. I viewed the map online before my ride and noticed you have to ride through Upper Saucon Community Park to pick up the southern section of the trail.

Columbia Trail

Shade covers whole trail

May, 2017 by arthurl101

It's a wonderful easy trail, that's well maintained. It starts at the free day parking lot. The trail surface is flat that's topped with a thin layer of crushed gravel. The trail stayed dry even a day after a heavy rain. Trees cover both sides of the trail providing plenty of shade. There are just a few open views where farms are visible and most of the views are of the river with occasional access points.

i love this park

May, 2017 by courtneejayne

there are so many little paved loop trails in this park. it has incredible views, a creek wandering through it, a disc golf course (if you like to throw frisbees while you hike!!) and plenty of trees to shade you on sunny & hot days or protect you from rain showers on cloudy days

Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail

Nice trail but best to stay out of Trenton

May, 2017 by rmillanct

The D&R trail that runs along the river is very nice, and it's very cool how it connects to the D&L on the other side of the Delaware River via bridges. We did both of these trails but one of the days we started on the NJ side parking off of US 1 South. We biked down to Trenton to connect with the trail that heads North on the river. Getting through Trenton was neither worth the hassle, nor potential safety issues riding through an urban area with little familiarity of the neighborhoods. Look up Trenton's crime rates and I think you will probably understand what I mean. We actually blew a flat downtown but luckily we didn't draw too much attention to us. There is plenty of biking on both of these trails, just skip going through this area, it's not worth the risk and you are not missing anything. We did not get to ride the other northern section of the V located on the NJ side but from what I gather it’s along highly populated areas, and highways. If you are looking for scenery and quite I think the river side is the best option.

Union Transportation Trail

kudos to a great new addition to NJ's RTT network

May, 2017 by jrutch

okay - here's the latest & greatest on the recently completed UTT Trail. We parked at the Herbert Road parking lot (which is the northernmost parking lot). We went south on the trail (go right) and rode traffic free for about 8.25 miles one way (16.5 round trip). All crushed gravel, all off road, all through farmland or woods. A few road crossings, only one we got off the tandem for. Port-a-johns at all the parking areas. One picnic table at the next to last parking area when heading south. A few of the crossings had the "push a button, slow down traffic, warning signals for the cars" - only used it for the busy 539 crossing. We saw one snake, some sheep and goats and a wandering little puppy. Saw other walkers and riders. This is a great antidote for people who believe NJ is only smokestacks and junkyards. We did not head north which supposedly goes another mile or so, but that section has been done for a few years, so I am presuming it too is traffic free.

Columbia Trail

I moved here because of the trail!

April, 2017 by agentamyroth

17 Years ago I moved to Hunterdon County because of this trail. I continue to enjoy it thru all the seasons. Walking or biking there is always some nature to delight be it flora or fauna. If you would like to live near the trail there is an open house in Califon 4/30 1-4pm. Today on my trail adventure I was able to take a photo of a fawn in the river and some turtles. This is a carry in carry out trail. Love your Earth! :)

Saddle River Area Bike Path - Bergen County

Best bike path there is.

April, 2017 by screwtapes

I love cycling here in the winter and off peak times. I ride here week nights because close to home. Pedestrians are clueless, make no effort to stay right walk dead center of the path and don't know how to move right when someone yells "on your left". On the weekends its an obstacle course of entitire families astrollers and dogs. Stay away

202 Parkway Trail

Great workout trail

April, 2017 by wdpendleton

Nice distance with smooth asphalt. Lots of long inclines and gear changes to challenge legs and wind. Starts at 202 & Welsh Rd. Ends at a beautiful and large park in Doylestown. Offshoots into a couple of short scenic rides.

bike path with kids

April, 2017 by anna.blikshteyn

Very well paved roads. But I found with little kids, the wind and narrow road became frustrating and much slower than expected.

Columbia Trail

Is This Really New Jersey?

March, 2017 by hal.snik

This has become one of my favorite trails to run in New Jersey. The trail is well-maintained, the crushed stone is dry (even after rain) and easy on the feet, there are mile posts every quarter mile, and the scenery is beautiful. There is a local coffeeshop in High Bridge and a great new coffeeshop (The Coffee Potter) on the trail in WShington Township.
