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.
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.
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.
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.
The good thing about this trail is that it's not crowded. But there's a reason it's not crowded: It just isn't anything that special about it. It's very short, and even in that short stretch, you've got to cross 2 roads with cars coming pretty fast. The unpaved stretch is a nice jaunt through the woods, but just 1 mile, and then you have to turn around. The paved part is about 2 miles, but not very scenic.
Great trail, though its also a very popular jogging trail so you’ll have to be careful. Definitely bring mountain biking tires if you can. The trail is mostly dirt but there are several long patches of loose rock that could prove hazardous to slick tires.
Can’t beat this view, especially for sunrise or sunset. Nice little breeze up there as well. Race Street Pier only half a mile away from the base of the Philly side entrance/exit. Also not too far from the Rocky Steps either if you want to make a run for it through Center City.
My family lives nearby so we take the kids and the dog over at least once a week. They walk or bike, throw rocks by the creek, etc. I also run the trail with the Tacony Running group, a program through TTF Watershed. We meet weekly also for several week segments throughout the year. Fairly easy trail, paved with some dirt trails leading off the main trail. Not too much traffic although it’s picked up some over the pandemic. One big hill at the end of the trail near the Cheltenham Ave. Gateway.
First time and not the last time !!
Pedestrian traffic does not stay to the right. Too many toddlers and strollers and again no one staying to right. We barely did a speed of 6mph. We went at 6pm on Friday night. The bridge was very steep. Had to walk the bike up. I guess if you are a seasoned rider you could do it. I find the section from Edison to Woodbridge much quieter. Next time will do this section only and do a few loops.
