Middle Township Bike Path

Started at Sun Resorts Seashore and rode on the new extension just a little way past the zoo. I believe the extension connects with the Dennis Township bike path for a grand total of 13 miles.

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 ?

Cooper River Park

Crowned, crowded, Cooper

Such a great park and trail that it gets too much traffic - cars and feet. Scenic views, facilities, amenities abound. People-watching paradise. Community feel.

Middle Township Bike Path

Nice smooth ride . . . but there are some concerns

September, 2022 by wpjc8bfxnr

It is a nice smooth ride but there are a few concerns when crossing some roads on the trail. One, in particular, is where the homeowner along the trails decided to line his property right up to the road with Bamboo. So dense that the vehicles or bikers approaching the crossing have no view of oncoming vehicle traffic or walkers until they are on the very small side lane. Other concerns along the path are a few sharp turns where near SHGC where after heavy rains you can see the runoff of crushed shells or sand where you can easily lose control even during a low-speed turn. Not enough location markers.
