Took my bike for 30 miles on this trail. What a relaxing, scenic experience. You want to get out there early if your biking, as the foot traffic increases around 11am. I enjoyed the different surfaces, the natural areas. A lot of deer and chipmunks. Definitely worth the experience. Whether you are on foot or wheels, pack plenty of water and a light snack. You will need it on this trail!
Lots of them! Worst part is the tick advisory is posted 2/3rds of the (1 mile) into the trail. Otherwise a very nice straight path, flat terrain hike. I will be going back in winter after tick season has passed.
Rode Matawan the Highlands this past Saturday. The trail was very busy but everyone was very courteous and obeyed the rules of the trail. The paved trail is having tree root problems other than that it was a very good ride. I don’t recommend road bikes as there are a lot of street crossings on this end of the trail. The best part is between Atlantic Highlands and Highlands.
It’s a mile through NJ dumplands.
It rained four days ago. I’d much prefer the paralleled D&R trail for biking. Otherwise very scenic.
Fun walk across the bridge with beautiful views. You get a great view of the Philadelphia Skyline. Only one walkway on the bridge is open but is easily accessible.
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.
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.
Flat and beautiful ride. ~ 30 miles round trip. Some parts require mask wearing, please comply.
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!!!
Beautiful ride never ending lol
I rode the northern section of this trail on my gravel bike - from Matawan towards Atlantic Highlands - as the end piece of a 66 mile Monmouth County tour this past Saturday.
It was the worst part of the ride, by far and away, and I am including in that the section of NJ 34 I had to traverse.
There are 30, count 'em, 30 road crossings in 10 miles. Each of which requires a full stop, unclip, dismount. Parents with young children beware, the crossings are almost all at very busy roads requiring extreme caution as NJ drivers are loathe to stop for pedestrians.
There are approximately two "interesting" view moments, the rest is residential backyards and a lovely look at IFF's superfund site in Union Beach. The asphalt trail surface has been heaved by tree roots for more or less the entire length resulting in wonderful undercarriage smashing speed bumps.
Avoid this trail - at least the "northern" section - and look elsewhere. I can heartily recommend Sandy Hook and the Bayshore trails as wonderful alternatives in the same area.
