Cool breeze being next to the river, very few people on the trail, a little short. Hoping the expansions happen eventually.
This trail is well-separated from the cars, so they're not a hazard, but there are a handful of crossings (with lights and pedestrian signals), which are annoying but easy and safe to do. This trail isn't in the woods (although the offshoots to Neshaminy Creek Trail are), so it's not somewhere to explore the beauty of nature, but it has two key virtues: (1) it is well-maintained asphalt with gentle turns and (2) the southern half is at a higher average elevation (200-250 feet) than the northern half.
Thus, heading south is a good workout with a lot of long-but-not-impossible climbs, while those same hills become long descents when heading north, a great place for people to develop confidence at higher speeds, using drop-bars, or practicing their lean for a high-speed turn. If you're just starting out cycling, or you're preparing for a 10- or 20-mile event, this is an excellent trail to develop your skills and improve your fitness.
At the end of the trail is a Kings supermarket with awesome sandwiches and more.
This was a great trail, but it gets very muddy after there has been some rain. I thought it would have more paved areas, but that is not the case. It is mostly dirt. Now that I know, I will be sure to try this trail again when it has not rained for awhile. Overall, great ride and nice scenery. We even saw two deer.
The Forks Township Trail is one of my favorites in the area. The trail itself is well maintained by the township but unimproved, great for biking or walking. The scenery is wonderful and wildlife is abundant. I saw a humongous buck on one of my recent trips there. Views of the Delaware River are seen at many points.
WALKED Princeton to S Bound Brook; S Bound Brook to New Bruns. Lambertville to Trenton. Lambertville to Frenchtown (except 2 mile "appendix" north of FT.) Still to do soon: Trenton to Princeton. Future: explore S of Trenton/Bordentown. Love it.
Much of trail has no maintenance. Was great trail not now!,,,,,
We got to the Knowlton trailhead late in the afternoon in the rain. We were immediately greeted by a black bear. We walked back to get our bikes and walk over to the bridge to get a look at the bear who had cut into the brush toward the river. As we approached the bridge we watched a bobcat walk across the road and enter Into the woods. From the bridge we did not see the bear but watched five mergansers pass below. We decided to ride in and pass the area where the bear was. We passed close to him and he ran alongside us in the adjacent woods and down to the water. We biked fast and away but a quarter mile later another bear crossed the path. We decided to turn around and go out. We biked out and reentered the trail on station rd, a short ride brought us a red tail hawk, coopers hawk, turkey ( in a tree), and a meadowlark! Our short ride ended watching nighthawks over the trailhead. All this in an hour and a half. Amazing!
I did a 40 mile round trip on this trail. Blairstown to the Millside cafe in Lafayette via 1 mile on the Sussex branch trail from Warbasse Junction and back. It was near 90 degrees but the 90% tree canopy coverage during the ride kept it cool. There are moments of single track, wet and mild mud etc. but nothing you can't pedal through. There are two road crossing where you will have to walk or carry your bike up and down a steep grade to cross the roads, There is nice water scenery and historic rail bridges on the southern end and nice farm and rural scenery on the northern end. Porto johns and any signs of civilization are limited, so come prepared. If you like rail trail riding this is a must do!
I call this the Snow White trail because it puts me to sleep. No incline, no gear shifts, no fun. It’s mostly covered by canopy so if you’re there in the summer you’d be better off loading up on bug spray rather than sunscreen.
Someone stated this trail is inclined in both directions- this is untrue. It’s generally level and the elevation difference is minimal from end to end. Many places to park and hike in either direction as well as trailhead parking.
Busy on weekends but nice to see people out loving the trail. The trail is generally 6+ feet wide. You can connect to Patriots Path, Gillette Trail, and others from this very popular trail.
Took this trail for the first time from the Bayberry Trailhead south. It's only slightly more than 5 miles one direction, but a really nice, scenic drive along side the creek most of the way. Path is very smooth so any type of bike tire is no problem. Some slight upgrades, but really no big deal for even the average riders. Along the path on weekends there is even a food truck and some picnic tables set up for a quick bite to eat. Plus there are numerous benches along the way to stop and snack. The trailhead has a parking lot, but it is not very big. When we were there on a picture perfect Sunday afternoon, the lot was pretty full, maybe holds around 40- 50 cars. We drove from Jersey about 50 miles to get there and I plan on going back.
