Middle Township Bike Path Description

The Middle Township Bike Path runs for just shy of 5 miles, between Cape May County Park and the community of Whitesboro, following the former route of the Cape May Seashore Line.

Along the way, trail-goers can access the park’s zoo, Atlantic Cape Community College, Davies Sports Complex, and the 4-H Fairgrounds.

One day the trail will extend farther south to the intersection of Satt Boulevard and Railroad Avenue in the Rio Grande community.

Parking and Trail Access

Park at the north end at Cape May County Park. Take Crest Haven Road to County Park Road. The trailhead is at the end of County Park Road on the northwest side of the park.

Middle Township Bike Path Reviews

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!

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.

The trail now goes further south then mapped. :) paved and all

Trail was extended from Indian Trail Rd to Main St in 2014. It is in good shape and is heavily used. Funding is secured to pave the next section to Satt Boulevard at the Lower/Middle Township line. The final mile down to connect with the Cold Spring Bike Path is being planned by Lower Township.

I walk a portion of this bike path daily! The part specifically between Hand Avenue and Dias Creek Road is in need of some maintenance and a good through picking up! It is trash strewn and dog feces is everywhere. The homeowners along the path have cleared for installing of fence, etc. and left huge piles of vegetation in piles on the bike path side of fences, corn stalks, dead plants and other trash are in piles long the path that meet with the intersecting roads, where lawn mowing has occurred last year, there are shredded up cans just waiting for someone to fall and get injured, trash from adjoining businesses (Muscle World and Osbourne's Furniture warehouse) remains unattended, there are no bags for dog waste or trashcans to contain the trash that is picked up! This is indeed a sorry mess! The bike path is and can be a huge attraction for the township but the condition of the present path is not acceptable and needs to be dealt with ASAP. With spring will be additional users of the path and we need to ensure that the path is safe and maintained in a sanitary manner.

This path has been added to, it now runs from Indian Trail Road all the way to the Zoo. It is paved and ready to ride :-) Can someone please update the mileage of the course?

Nicely paved. Rural. Great connection between the ever-popular Cape May County Zoo & the heart of Cape May Court House.
