NYS&W Bicycle & Pedestrian Path Description


The NYS&W Bicycle and Pedestrian Path is a 2.5-mile rail-trail that runs through areas of residential, commercial and industrial development in Pequannock. 

In addition to providing opportunities for recreation, the trail serves as a vital active transportation link for the surrounding communities--connecting neighborhoods, businesses, schools, libraries, parks, transit, and more.

When complete, the trail will be 4.8 miles running between Pequannock and Wayne. Following the abandoned railroad right-of-way, the northern 4.1 miles of the path will be 10ft wide and paved section. Running through environmentally sensitive areas, the southern 0.7-mile section won't follow the right-of-way and will have both paved and boardwalk sections.

About the Route

From its northern end on River Drive in a wooded area in Pequannock, the trail heads south through the township. Running through a mix of residential neighborhoods and commercial areas, the rail-trail passes a number of parks including Pequannock Valley Park, Washington Park, and Cherry Street Park. 

The current southern end is on Newark Pompton Turnpike in Pequannock. When complete, the southern end of the trail will be at the Mountain View Train Station in Wayne. 

Trail History

The trail was built along the inactive railroad bed of the New York, Susquehanna, and Western (NYS&W) Railway. Originally a commuter line, this stretch was later used as the NYS&W's Pompton Industrial Spur.

Parking and Trail Access

The NYS&W Bicycle & Pedestrian Path runs between River Dr (Pequannock) and Newark Pompton Turnpike (Pequannock).
