Located about 25 miles east of Philadelphia, the Pemberton Rail-Trail is an excellent example of grassroots activism resulting in the creation of a community-based rail-trail. The Pemberton Rotary Club was largely responsible for creating the trail, having taken the leadership role in planning, developing and maintaining the trail.
The trail begins at Hanover Street by a restored railroad station that serves as a museum. Several old train cars and assorted other railroad artifacts are found here. The trail is wooded on both sides and crosses a stream at about the midpoint.
The trail is part of a larger, developing regional trail system called the Rancocas Greenway, which will one day span 25 miles.
From the north, take the NJ Turnpike to Route 206; then take County Route 530 East into South Pemberton. Take a left (north) onto Hanover Street. Follow this for about 0.5 miles and you'll see an old passenger station on the left. Park here where it is approved and safe.
