On an especially brisk, early morning weekday in late October, I had the pleasure of riding my bike on this beautiful trail. There were plenty of walkers and joggers for the first couple of miles, and then me on my bike.
I started at the High Bridge trailhead. The gravel trail made me wish I had my old mountain bike, but after awhile you get used to it and realize your bike isn't going to fall apart. My hybrid did just fine. Just beyond Califon the trail became hard packed dirt and allowed for a smoother, faster ride. Due to time constraints I only went eleven miles out and then back, so I didn't get to discover what the last four or five miles are like.
The Raritan River views are absolutely amazing, and the fall colors dazzling! The sounds of the river and the chirping birds are an additional joy. After Califon the terrain is more suited to land occupied by charming homes and farmland, but there is still plenty of woodlands and river. If I hadn't stopped so many times to take photos and video, I probably could have done the full thirty mile round trip.
After a couple of hours and eleven miles I turned back. It was then that I started passing many, many bicyclists. I think they preferred the warmer temps of late morning to avoid the frozen fingers I had to endure. In fact, I was surprised at how many cars were in the High Bridge parking lot with their bike racks and many, like this Californian, with out of state plates which attests to this trail's fame and popularity. I'm just speculating, but this trail must be super busy on weekends.
What a gem of a trail! A+
I biked 2 miles South (Corson Tavern Road) from the Thousand Trails Lake and Shore campground (Oceanview) to the northern most trailhead and continued on to the Cape May Point Lighthouse State Park. What a great 24 mile ride! Very little interaction with cars. 100% paved (recent). This trail interacts with Middle Township and Cold Spring trail. Worth looking for...it was a bit tricky to find the trail heads. There was limited parking at a few of the trailheads. No restrooms on trail but I did see a few convenience stores along the way and also a city park (Railroad Avenue Park) closer to Cape May that had a bike station, drinking fountain and portable toilet.
This was just completed in the last couple of years. A bit narrower than what I like to jog on, but this part goes all the way to the county line. The trees are set far back, which means this is in the sun most of the day. Would recommend going out early or late in the day. Have to cross a couple of roads with light traffic, and then Rt 83. Connects to the trail in Middle Township at the county line.
We ride this trail a few times a year. Its very straight, smooth and mostly flat. Just a few very slight inclines. From Rt. 47 you ride a good distance before there are any road crossings. After that there are a few but only one or two that have a lot of traffic. Most of the trail goes through mature woodlands that give a lot of shade. My only complaint is that there don't seem to be any public bathrooms on the trail or at the trailheads. Otherwise, this is an easy, pretty trail.
We started at the south end in Barnegat. We bikes the first 7 miles. There is a lot of opportunities between mile maker 2.5 and 3.5 to eat, drink, restroom.
12 miles to a awesome payoff. NYC Skyline in the distance. A bit bumpy at times. Great way to get used to clipping in. You do it a lot. Lol Many road crossings. Half the ride under shade. Clean path. 2 hours there and back at 11MPH Enjoy the ride!
This trail could be one of the top 3 in the state, but with overgreen weeds sticking out, you have to duck not to get hit by branches. There are places where you need to get off the trail and use paved road to cross a route, but those "exits" are steep with thick tree roots and loose gravel on steep declines which makes it very scary, even if you walk the bike. Parts of the trail heads have overgrown vines which if they get caught on your pedal will send you flying. Many parts of the trail are very, very narrow, zero chance of 2 bikers being able to cross will riding, one has to stop and move over into the woods. This trail needs serious TLC.
The Sussex branch trail is just one part. There are many trails in the area, an overlook, and you can walk around Waterloo village. This is just one trail, the entire area has multiple sites and things to see.
Note that bikes, scooters and skates are not allowed on the Seawall. Walking trail only.
Parked in the Lawrenceville Fuel parking lot on Gordon Ave, crossed Gordon Ave to James Street, then headed Southwest - following the zigs and zags and ultimately heading North to Moore's Mill - Mt. Rose Road.
This is one of the more scenic trails I've been on in New Jersey - you will go thru parks, wooded areas, and past farmland. Trail markings are pretty good for the most part, though there are a few places that could use better signage...having a map or trail app with you can't hurt if it's your first time.
It's more hilly than your basic canal or rail trail, but nothing too hairy. There are a lot of unshaded areas, so sunblock is a good thing to take along. All in all, it's an enjoyable ride with varied scenery.
The pavement is too rough and also there are little hills that might be dangerous. Is great for bikes though
Parked at Working Dog Winery about a mile and a half from the north end trail head. Used my road bike which worked fairly well for the 20 miles round trip. Just be careful on turns if you are using a narrow tire. The crushed stone can make it a bit slippery. Trail is about 50/50 sun and shade with only one major road crossing which is quite nice. A great option for central jersey riders.
