Ocean breezes and highway sounds

Yeah, a good ride, which connects via tunnels under the highway to Jones Beach and a more direct connection to the 5-mile bike path that goes north to the mainland. Get sweaty then enjoy the salty ocean beach waters. A go

Jones Beach Boardwalk

NIce, short, right on the beach!

Thursday, August 09, 2018, 90'F and very humid.
After slogging through the ridiculous Long Island traffic, I rode here and the the other 2 connected trails, which are all nice. You reach the other 2 paths via tunnels under the highway from the Jones Beach parking lots. I have a hard time believing the boardwalk is 4 miles long though. Get nice and sweaty then go in the lovely, salty ocean waters.

West Essex Trail

one of my favorite trails but now severely damaged

August, 2018 by jasr6189

The storms in NJ on August 16th caused severed damage to the trail. The pathway has precarious ditches now and much of the path is no longer ride-able via bike. I truly hope they fix it soon as it really is a great trail.

Loantaka Brook Reservation Trail

Excellent bike ride

August, 2018 by mnts_tl

This was our first time here, and thankfully it was not too crowded. The foliage cover and the path are incredible, though, so you can enjoy a lot of streams and greenery while walking/jogging/bicycling. For cycling, it’s pretty mild, so if you’re looking for a challenge, this might not be for you. Wonderful family bike morning!

Saddle River Area Bike Path - Bergen County

Enjoy but Watch Out

August, 2018 by anteodoro3

Speeding and unruly bikers come often. Many forgo the bikers' decorum of announcing their approach from behind. " On your left " or "On your right " should be the case, but that is actually the exception. Just be careful if you are walking. It is the only fly in this ointment. The section from Dunkerhook Road in Paramus to the northern end in Ridgewood pleases the sense much.

Larkin State Park Trail

Great ride but especially by IBM and where there is an active rusty river flowing there needs to be work done.

Randolph Trails

Only for Mountain bikes

August, 2018 by newton.adl

Extremely steep in some sections (not bike-able), maybe 10% is paved, mostly construction type gravel. Was stuck in the very lowest 3 gears for most of the ride. Did not come across any other bike rider. Not a pleasant ride by any stretch of the imagination. Quite a few hikers though.

Heritage Trail (aka Orange Heritage Trail)

Smooth trail; pleasant.

July, 2018 by dcar777

We were driving home to PA from CT and stopped to stretch our legs on this trail, so we didn't ride the full length. We started at Goshen and there was plenty of parking in the municipal lot that sits right at the trail head; this was a Monday afternoon, but there was still plenty of parking (thank you to the town for providing free parking!).

The trail is nicely paved and very well maintained. The first two miles were a bit noisy because the trail runs parallel to a busy highway, but after that it was quiet and relaxing. We went a bit beyond Chester and turned around. (Unlike some other reviewers, we didn't find Chester particularly charming.) The trail was flat, easy, well shaded, and relaxing, and we were grateful to the people who keep it in such good condition. Our only (VERY minor) complaint was that close to Goshen the trail sometimes had the feel of riding moguls, probably because tree roots are growing beneath the asphalt. Overall, we would recommend the trail.

After riding, we left our car in the municipal lot and walked two blocks to the Sunshine Cafe. Although the signage made us think it was just a juice bar, it had a nice menu--great paninis and a long list of specialty burgers. We recommend the restaurant highly.

Sandy Hook Multi-Use Pathway

5 Star!

July, 2018 by hdglide07

Absolutely love this trail. First off, get there early. Sandy Hook is a popular place and after 9 on the weekends there will be a wait at the entrance to get in.

You can park anywhere and jump on the trail. It's paved and a smooth ride. The view is great and changes from water to trees and back. There aren't really any hills to worry about so it's mostly easy pedaling.

I usually rig a chair to the bike and stop off on the bay side to relax for bit.

Pequonnock River Trail

Pequonnock River Trai

July, 2018 by cheryl3421

I completed this trail this weekend. I started at the entrance of Beardsley Park and ended at Swamp Road in Botsford. The trail is beautiful and very quite. I highly recommend this trail. I would suggest stopping at Pepper Street as a portion of the trail between Pepper Street and Swamp Road is not really a trail. The "trail" is very narrow and overgrown ( I rode through this area with my arms pressed to my sides and still could not avoid the trees/leaves brushing against me). Also, the area has a very high concentration of mosquitos. All in all the trail is AWESOME and I will be riding it (up to Pepper Street) once a week.

Paulinskill Valley Trail

Nice flat trail but...

July, 2018 by emvxl4

My wife and I rode the trail today (28-Jul-2018). It had rained the day before, so the trail was a bit wet. There were muddy spots, but most of the time the trail was just a bit wet. We planned on parking near the Simply Day Spa, but realized that the access to the trail from that parking spot was impossible to access with a bike - it was steep and rocky. And of course wet. So we parked at the East Crisman Road parking, just after the single lane bridge. Next time, just park at the Footbridge Park. But once on the trail, we realized some spots were muddy but manageable. There were times when between E Crisman parking and the airport, the trail narrows and widens. Once at the Blairstown Airport, you have to use Lambert Road for a bit, then into Airport Road. From here, there are no signs to direct you to where the trail is. From there, Airport Road ends and you will see a dirt road before the gates - that's the trail. From here, the trail sort of becomes wide enough for two way bike traffic to just a patch of dirt for you tires. The trails need a lot of maintenance - a lot of low branches, some branches on the road and basically, it just needs some trees cut down. Because of the lack of maintenance and overgrowth, you can hardly see anything on either side of the trail. But it was a good ride, flat trail - my wife and I rode up to Paulinskill Viaduct. Nice structure, with all the graffiti and all.

South County Trailway

Not as bumpy as others claim

July, 2018 by vinstranges

After reading some of the reviews I was prepared for a disastrous trail. Yes, its a little bumpy in spots but I felt it was mostly smooth. A couple of places are semi-rough but it wasnt that big of a deal.

Also, getting to it is a little tricky if youre just searching on google for directions. I found the best launch point to be at the northern most end of the South County Trail (just south-east of the Tarrytown Resovior). Drive your car to and get off at exit 23 of the Saw Mill Pkwy. There is a park and ride right there. Park your car and head south on your bike for the South County Trail and North for the North County trail.
