Trail Closed!

This trail is currently closed for PSEG construction until June 2020! I went there on Friday Sept. 20 for the relatively short ride it affords and was met with heavy construction equipment and signs. I don’t know if they’re making trail improvements as well but they were working on the section of right of way that goes through the park. Hopefully that will now be included as part of the trail.

Beautiful, safe trail

A very nice trail that is fun for bike, wide and not dangerous at all

A short, but pleasant ride through West Windsor

Commonly used by residents in the adjacent neighborhoods, the trolley line trail is a safe and practical means of exercise connecting the community park with other developments. The bridge at the community park has beautiful views of Big Bear Brook and the views are very "picture worthy."

What a trail!

Wouldn't mind going back there again. I was just here today with my dad but we only had time to go across the bridge. Also there's an interesting history behind the former trolley line...
