Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail

A trail with a fascinating history

January, 2023 by mick22

The trail was originally a tow path...in its early days mules would walk along it towing barges through the canal, usually carrying coal from Pennsylvania to the New York area. The canal is seventy-five feet wide and eight feet deep. It was dug in the 1830s by hand - mostly by laborers brought in from Ireland. They worked under brutal conditions from sunup til sundown; some of them had stonemason skills and their cobblestone spillways still survive.

So how long did it take 3,000 Irish laborers to dig the canal? Only three freaking years! Next time you ride this trail, mentally drink a toast of fine Irish whiskey to the good folks who labored so we can ride!

D&L Trail

First Time Starting in Bristol

December, 2022 by rwblackwell

I just discovered the trail and rode it for a few miles earlier today, starting in Bristol. I thought the trail would have gone right next to the Delaware River (like the Schuylkill River Trail), but the path is a bit inland from the river. The path is small gravel. It’s not the most scenic path, but it’s in decent shape. I’ll probably only ride it again if I have the time to make it up to. We Hope.

Edgar Felix Memorial Bikeway

eBike Accessible

December, 2022 by mmelone_tl

Have enjoyed this trail for several years. Recently purchased an eBike and have emailed the recreation department in a couple of the towns that that the trail goes thru to get a clarification as to whether eBikes are permitted with no response. Not sure what town maintains or manages the trail. According to posted NJ legislation eBike are permissible on any trails that allow pedal bikes. Does anyone know where an official response can be obtained.
Thanks

Union Transportation Trail

Trail is great. Took my road bike w/700x25c tires on the well laid out path. Gravel is hard packed up to the 4 mile marker. Mile 4 thru 6 was loose gravel but manageable. It was a nice ride.

Bronx River Greenway

Nice trail

October, 2022 by dd5rz2q65y

Nice trail for running, and it wasn’t too crowded. There were a few scenic areas but I was expecting more. Also if hilly around the start. And decent parking.

Manasquan Reservoir Trail

Enjoy Nature

October, 2022 by thomas101

This is a great trail to get out in the woods and enjoy nature. If you are riding a bike, there can be a good amount of people on these trails, even on a weekday.
There are a couple of narrow sections where you may have to stop and let people pass.
Has a visitor center with indoor bathrooms.
All in all a great time!

Sandy Hook Multi-Use Pathway

Beautiful ride with so much to see

October, 2022 by bestesbrau56_tl

Went on OCT 6 on an absolutely beautiful fall day. The trail is easy but there are so many side trails and that you keep riding through Sea Breeze that we put in 18+ miles in two hours. Lots of access to virtually empty beaches on both sides of the peninsula for relaxing and fishing. No swimming though. We plan to come back to not only ride again but to bring the beach and the fishing gear. It is a gem in one of the most highly populated areas of the US.

Pemberton Rail-Trail

Right turn

September, 2022 by tjdjf4gxpw

So today on bike started at water plant and at split I went right. More natural trail. Great for mountain bikes but still easy walking. Pushing a stroller might be challenging. Curves and a slight incline. Very scenic along the creek almost all the way. Ending at the waterfalls very cool spot. 1.7 miles. Returned same way. I saw a sign saying That said state park ?

New Springville Greenway

Great trail

September, 2022 by pcnitti14

Amazing ride, almost not realizing your next to a busy thoroughfare, not to many hills so you don’t feel the distance

Elizabeth River Trail (NJ)

renovated teail

September, 2022 by francom726

This trail is being renovated and is pretty nice, it’s much larger than the map shows. The trail takes you all the way into Staten Island through the Goethals Bridge and there’s another half to the trail of the trail on the other side of Downtown Elizabeth!

Bethpage Bikeway

Bumpy Ride

September, 2022 by senseibarb

I’ve downgraded my previous review to four stars. I rode the trail yesterday morning, and while it is still a great workout the trail needs to be repaved in several areas. The patchwork that was done is not even with the results making for a bumpy ride in several places. The massapequa side and Bethpage side is flat and smooth. It’s the middle area of the trail that gets a bit rough. Not good for the bike or the butt. Hopefully this can get corrected as the scenery and length make for a stunning ride !
