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

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.

Heritage Trail (NY)

As Flat as it Gets Around Here

June, 2020 by ilyalapin90

Perfect trail to go road biking on. This is as flat as you can find it around these parts with only 450ft of elevation over a round trip of about 30 miles. Perfectly maintained and paved tarmac. Not a single incline/decline above 1% gradient.
The closest official parking location on the Southern end of the track is at Orange and Rockland street long term parking lot. However, if you wish to start at there very tip of the trail, I recommend parking at River road and North Main Street in the town of Harriman (right next to Mary Harriman Park).

Hook Mountain/Nyack Beach Bikeway

Gorgeous, fun to bike

June, 2020 by graphographer

I've ridden this trail three times now on a loaded touring bike (rear panniers). Some of the rolling hills at the Nyack end definitely require some mettle and/or caution, but I never felt at risk of losing control. I think the "moderate" experience level is justified.

For reference, my bike was outfitted with 35mm tires. The first time was with moderately knobby tires (Schwalbe Mondials) which I decided were overkill for a mostly paved tour; the second time was with slicks and I felt no less confident. The weight of a touring load probably helps with traction regardless of the tire. Experience with changing your gears quickly and often is very helpful here. I was with friends who were on single speeds and they had to walk quite a bit of it :)

North County Trailway

Pretty, but a little loud

June, 2020 by emily.tenenbaum1

This trail is perfect for a long ride—paved, very pretty, nice scenery. It runs parallel to the Saw Mill pkwy so it can get a bit loud. Other than that, it’s really nice!

Heritage Trail (NY)

Flat & Easy

June, 2020 by emily.tenenbaum1

The path is 100% paved—no gravel at all and completely fine with a road bike. Some nice farm views, nature preserve access, and shade. Definitely will come back.

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

great walk/bike/run!

Very nice paved path next to the CIP

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
