John N. Balis Bikeway Description

The John N. Balis Bikeway is a half-mile paved trail along a former rail corridor that now serves as an electrical transmission right of way in the suburban community of Runnemede.

The southern end of the trail begins at the northeast corner of a parking lot at the intersection of Clements Bridge Road and Bowers Avenue (the parking lot is located on the north side of Route 41). The trail heads north from the parking lot through residential neighborhoods to Smith Lane, where there is a large sports complex featuring a number of baseball fields.

Only one street, 3rd Avenue, bisects the trail. All of the other side streets, 1st Avenue through 7th Avenue, dead end on the east side of the trail. However, paved side trials connect each of these streets to the bikeway.

Parking and Trail Access

To reach the John N. Balis Bikeway from the New Jersey Turnpike, take Exit 3 for NJ Route 168/North Black Horse Pike. Proceed south on North Black Horse Pike and turn right onto Clements Bridge Road (Route 41). Enter the parking lot on the right at the intersection of Bowers Avenue. The trail begins in the northeast corner of the parking lot.
