Dennis Township Bike Path

Very nice trail

April, 2021 by gigi09morales

Took the family inline skating on this trail. Nicely paved. Some of the road crossings were a little rough on the younger members, but all did very well. Would recommend.

Atlantic County Bikeway

Nice Trail

April, 2021 by kyleheck2004

Overall it’s a nice trail, it’s a little short but is good for beginners.

Middle Township Bike Path

I got really annoyed a while back trying this before and having to repeatedly switch to roads. Now that it's complete, it is nice. The asphalt is smooth for riding and all is nice. (I only did the southern tip to near stone harbor.)

Cooper River Park

love it

January, 2021 by central.roommom

3.6 miles. Bathroom is a huge plus.

Gordons Pond Trail

Great ride!

January, 2021 by david.morrison_tl

Well-maintained. Things to do along the way, if you choose. Herons everywhere for bird-lovers. Great panoramic view from Lewes to Rehoboth. Highly recommend.

Thomas F. Hampton Trail (Crossley Preserve Trail)

Water

December, 2020 by mdrew4300

Difficult to access. Water prevented completion. Much of the trail was flooded.

Middle Township Bike Path

All Clear

December, 2020 by svpanthers80

Just updating the info for this trail, it is now open end to end. Enjoy.

Corson's Inlet Rail Trail

Was short, not much scenery

October, 2020 by sheilahalf1007

Had to really look thru all the shrubbery and trees to get a view of anything, otherwise just a narrow path to the end and back.

Historic Smithville Park Trails

Beautiful

October, 2020 by timwsmithmusic

Great trail, super smooth to ride on and got a chance to see some great wildlife on the lake as well. Some stairs do get pretty steep to carry bikes up, but you’ll be able to cover most of the ground on a bike no problem.

Pleasantville to Somers Point Bike Path

Love this path!!! SomersPoint path redone!!

October, 2020 by maferose00

I’m an inline-skater.... I go from Northfield, pass Linwood to SomersPoint!! The scenery is nice, relaxed, people are nice, passes a few schools along the way. A few intersection stops, PAY CLOSE ATTENTION!!! The Northfield pavement is a bit rough, you know you hit Linwood when it gets really smooth, and SomersPoint finally got a RENOVATION on their path ¿! Omg, it’s beautiful and smooth and ohhh did I mention smooth?!? I took few pics... enjoy! I did!!!

Georgetown-Lewes Trail

Rode the entire trail and back with the family. It was a bit tiring towing the little ones behind me but the whole family had a blast!

Middle Township Bike Path

Not pleasant

September, 2020 by montclairrich

We started at the Cape May Zoo (north end of the path). The path consists of an asphalt strip, straight as an arrow in a 60' wide clearing filled with dead vegetation and between 2 rows of high voltage utility poles. The path was closed 2 miles in and we were forced to detour along busy Route 9. After we found our way back to the path, it was closed again a mile farther South. It was the same story - closed for construction with no Detour signs. We gave up at that point. Maybe someday the path will be re-opened and it will have nice plantings. But for now - go elsewhere.
