Henry Hudson Trail

a leisurely summer ride

July, 2020 by smajler

We rode this trail a couple days ago on road bikes, starting in Highlands. Beautiful views along the path and a variety of scenery. We went on a hot sunny day and were happy about how balanced the trail was in terms of sun exposure and shade. You can park your car at the start of the trail at Henry Hudson Trail Activity Center (on google maps search for “Bayshore Family Success Center”, it’s the same building/parking lot). The first couple of miles or so are bumpy due to the tree roots raising asphalt along the route. The ref of the ride was smooth but we rode only as far as Keyport. so are

Lawrence Hopewell Trail

July, 2020 by lancealot03_tl

Great trail with plenty of views. Ponds woods and fields.

Middlesex Greenway

Excellent Trail Except No Social Distancing

June, 2020 by danielledavan1

The trail itself is a beautiful 3.5 mile paved road traveling through Metuchen, Edison and Woodbridge. Great for walkers, joggers and bicyclists. However, as another person mentioned, people do not stay to the right of the road. People walking in a group will continue walking at you without adhering to the rules of social distancing and moving over to their side. It's a shame because it is a lovely walk however people need to be more respectful with regards to social distancing.

D&L Trail

trail closed near tinicum

June, 2020 by judyweinstein

Great trail until you get close to tinicum. Trail completely closed. Had to go down and up steep embankment to get onto road. It reopens after 100 yards or so. We went up pa side from Stockton and returned on Nj side to avoid it on return. Nj side much wider.

Cross Island Parkway Trail

Route 18 Bike Path

Fun little trail

June, 2020 by jonathanwtea

Fun little trail that connects Edgar Felix Trail to Wall Township. I noticed it said “Inline skating” as an appropriate activity for this trail. I would not recommend this. Portions of the trail are extremely steep and the trail itself has many bumps from tree roots growing beneath. Probably time to repave this trail soon.

East River Greenway

too narrow

June, 2020 by aerian00

The upper part gets too narrow to enjoy. Too many people. The lower part starting around South Street Seaport and up is much more spacious and enjoyable

Randall's Island Park Trails

June, 2020 by aerian00

Really nice views. Could get confusing so use TrailLink maps to get around. It has sewer smell at parts of the island. Lot’s of people BBQing all around.
