Oxford Bikeway Description

The Oxford Bikeway is a .9 mile long pave trail constructed on an abandoned railroad right-of-way. The trail can be accessed at three points. To the north the trail ends at Pequest Road, however there is no place to park a car at this location. A dedicated driveway to the trail and parking is adjacent to the lane into the town's sewer plant. There is a sign indicating bikeway parking, the drive looks very much like a section of trail, it is only a single lane wide. This location puts you in about the middle of the trail. The access point closest to Oxford is at the end of Lower Denmark Road. There is a slight climb here that takes you from the road level where you can park to the railroad grade level. If parking at the sewer plant location about another half mile can be added to your journey by taking Lower Denmark Road into town. It aooears that a portion of Lower Denmark Road was constructed on the railroad bed. Lower Denmark Road ends opposite the fire station at Wall Street. There are no cross streets along the entire length of the trail.

Parking and Trail Access

From US Route 46, take New Jersey Route 31 south in Buttzville. Turn left onto Pequest Road. Just past Sewer Plant Lane, turn onto the trail parking driveway and proceed to the parking area. To reach the parking area closest to Oxford, continue on New Jersey Route 31 turn left on Wall Street and then left again onto Lower Denmark Road. Follow the road to the designated trail parking.

Oxford Bikeway Reviews

"The Oxford Bikeway is an expertly designed and constructed 1.5-mile long, asphalt surfaced rail trail. The trail serves as an alternative, motor vehicle free route for school children traveling between two new housing developments along Pequest Road and Oxford’s only public school, located in downtown Oxford. Prior to construction of the Bikeway, children living in the housing developments frequently traveled up and down Pequest Road and busy NJ State Highway 31 on their way to and from school.

There are two trailheads along Pequest Road; one near a waste water treatment plant and the other 3/10 of a mile further east. The Bikeway travels from Pequest Road south to Lower Denmark Road. Parking is available at Pequest Road Park, the Pequest Wildlife Management Area Pequest Road parking lot, or at a designated trail user parking area on Lower Denmark Road. The trail is free of any public or private street/driveway crossings and its surface is perfect for biking, walking, jogging, or in-line skating.

Since this trail is quite a distance from any major metropolitan area, if you’re thinking about visiting it you might also want to check out the nearby Pequest Wildlife Management Area rail trail on the same trip."
