Rode up from Cape May for the first time this year. After leaving town I got on the Cold Spring Bike Path and then steeled my nerves for the 2+ miles one has (had) to take on Rt 109/9 to connect to the MTBP. After about a half mile on the road after CSBP, a new asphalt bike path magically appeared. There were signs saying the path was closed but it looked done so I took a chance and voila, despite the signage, the new section completely connects to the beginning (now the middle of the MTBP). This really made my day. Now it is about 3 miles of path on the Cold Spring Trail, 3/4 mile on rt 109 (with a wide shoulder), then 6.75 so on this trail, plus, at the north end, there is another bike trail for about a mile to the big rec complex. Almost 11 miles of safe biking!
Easy smooth roads, beautiful areas.
Great bike path that now extends south of Satt blvd eventually to link with Cold Spring path. Very smooth with just a coupe of road intersections.
The trail is mostly straight. The scenery is okay. The minor setback is, in some areas there are to many intersections. You must be careful. The trail is a bit longer than listed. It is about 7 miles long. They are currently working to complete the final leg of the trail. This will run from the zoo to the Cape May Ferry.
I rode the Trenton to New Brunswick section. Most of it is in great condition with a few rough places near the New Brunswick end.
This ride can be done as a one way ride.
Park at the New Jersey Transit Hamilton Station. There is a sidewalk that connects to the westbound platform to access local streets for about a mile ride to the trail. The north end of the trail ends about 1 1/2 miles via city streets to the NJT New Brunswick Station. Take the train towards Trenton and get off at Hamilton. NOTE: Be sure to check NJT schedules as not all trains permit bikes.
Love walking this trail - it's an easy walk from one end to the other and back but combine it with Lene Lenapi trail at either end to add distance and difficulty. It's in a populated area but set back enough that you don't feel like you're "in the city"
Warning as of 6/13/17: There's a large tree down across the trail just after the Pompton Ave bridge on the western side. It's possible to climb over the trunk but bikers might have a little trouble. Use caution until it's cleared.
My wife and I did our first ride on the PA side from Morrisville to Washington Crossing State park. Round trip ride was about 18 miles. There is parking I the Morrisville section, and the trail is easy to pick up just across the street. The path is all crushed red gravel and dirt, very flat and easy to ride with any type off bike. I have a road bike and my wife a hybrid and we had no problems at all. Never had to change gears once. There are lots of wild life along the way,especially ducks, so be on the alert. Parts also get a little narrow in spots, but really not a big deal. We drove into the visitor center at Washington Crossing and had a light lunch we packed before heading back. Can't wait to try some other sections of this trail!
I run trail on a regular basis from Horseshoe Lake Park. It's about 1.5 miles from Horseshoe Lake Park to the trail beginning. The trail is always fun and sometimes muddy in spots. I've encountered a bear on the link between Horseshoe Lake Park and the trail beginning. The bear is not aggressive and will leave if you make some loud noises. I've encountered hunters several times when running in the fall and winter. The was no problems with them. Please wear bright clothes during the hunting season just to be extra safe. See you on the trails!
Just finished 17.8 miles on this trail. Started at the Millstone Rd parking lot, rode just past the 8.5 mile marker and turned back around. Rode the trail with my husband and 2 children (12,9) who both did a fantastic job. Will being going again. This time might park closer to the Sharon Station lot to take advantage and see where the trail goes as it enters into the Assunpink Wildlife Area.
Only slight inclines nothing difficult. Crushed stone the entire path. Great scenery and the wonderful aroma of honeysuckle the entire ride.
Beautiful trail. Well maintained. Nice easy ride through the trees.
It's a wonderful easy trail, that's well maintained. It starts at the free day parking lot. The trail surface is flat that's topped with a thin layer of crushed gravel. The trail stayed dry even a day after a heavy rain. Trees cover both sides of the trail providing plenty of shade. There are just a few open views where farms are visible and most of the views are of the river with occasional access points.
The D&R trail that runs along the river is very nice, and it's very cool how it connects to the D&L on the other side of the Delaware River via bridges. We did both of these trails but one of the days we started on the NJ side parking off of US 1 South. We biked down to Trenton to connect with the trail that heads North on the river. Getting through Trenton was neither worth the hassle, nor potential safety issues riding through an urban area with little familiarity of the neighborhoods. Look up Trenton's crime rates and I think you will probably understand what I mean. We actually blew a flat downtown but luckily we didn't draw too much attention to us. There is plenty of biking on both of these trails, just skip going through this area, it's not worth the risk and you are not missing anything. We did not get to ride the other northern section of the V located on the NJ side but from what I gather it’s along highly populated areas, and highways. If you are looking for scenery and quite I think the river side is the best option.
