Union Transportation Trail

Nice trail.

June, 2018 by cmassaro19

Nice trail. Fairly even and well maintained ... not many people on it. Good for walking, biking, jogging. Good parking on Herbert Road to enter trail. Recommend wearing headphone if biking, gravel crunching can be noisy.

Pequest Wildlife Management Area Trail

No good for biking

June, 2018 by titajose43

It is difficult to find a good parking area. It is also a very lonely area.

Bayshore Trail (Henry Hudson Trail)

Open!

June, 2018 by trek8

Newly paved and open the whole length.

Henry Hudson Trail

Excellent!

June, 2018 by trek8

Most of this trail from Aberdeen to Atlantic Highlands has been repaved. No more tree roots protruding on the path. Well kept!

Columbia Trail

Picturesque Trail

May, 2018 by blumonstr44

The trail is wide and is made of well packed gravel and dirt. It is well maintained and dry even after heavy rainfall in the past 2 - 3 days. Almost the entire trail is covered by canopy from surrounding trees and it is beautiful. Then entire trail is pretty much flat and easy. The entire trail from beginning to the end is 15 miles and it provide a mile markers. Highly recommended.

Manasquan Reservoir Trail

Manasquan Reservoir

May, 2018 by bethritterguth

This is a really nice short hike for new hikers and children. Try to catch sunset if you can. It’s incredible.

Freedom Trail Bikeway

Toxic Waste

May, 2018 by freddy.got

Oh boy fellow trail lovers now the trail is closed for super secret toxic waste cleanup! On joy! Walking mostly westerly on paved trail (opposite side from freedom trail parking by current train tracks) to past stouts lane where paved ended and dirt began: There is a new trail addition it stops most but not all foot travellers. Bicycle or vehicle is impossible now. There are no signs or such as anyone in the United States would suspect the government would require as to what in the world is now there. But based on the trailer I saw with a toxic waste cleanup company name on it (Terra-Therm) the way they now have the area sealed off and machinery to drill down and receive samples its obviously related to possible or definite toxic waste. Don't you think in order to shut down public property in fact this trail they would have to post what they're doing ? Nope not in this state. Don't bother asking the workers any questions it's all hush-hush don't tell the locals about this toxic waste. With this secret toxic waste cover up how can you rate it more than one star at the moment?

Cooper River Park

Would love to bike this trail.

May, 2018 by gtbest

wind350 made a comment in Oct. 2013 (see below) and it's still the same. The trail has many joggers, walkers, pets and baby carriages and does not work well for bikers. The roads are ok (you do have to weave around drainage grates) but still no bike lanes and Cuthbert Blvd. has a lot of traffic moving at a pretty good clip.

Barnegat Branch Trail

Too many stop signs

April, 2018 by graphitepaddle

Riding a recumbent trike, starting in Lochiel Park. Rode north to the end (Lacey Rd). Rode to the southern end (Burr St), before returning to Lochiel Park.

Southern section has few crossings, lots of shade, and is further from rt 9. Expect to return, but only because of this section.

Middle section is practically on top of rt. 9. And the constant road & driveway crossing are a big deterrent for returning for more rides.

An outhouse in Lockiel Park, plus another one north one north Country Ln.

Capoolong Creek Wildlife Management Area

Lovely

April, 2018 by mema34

A quiet walk along the water, we enjoyed very much. A little tricky to determine a place to park in Pittstown

Ulysses Wiggins Waterfront Park Promenade

A short-but-sweet trail

April, 2018 by laurastark

This wide, easy trail puts you right next to the Delaware River, so the views of the waterway and the Ben Franklin Bridge are really nice. It's also right behind the Adventure Aquarium, which my 8-year-old daughter loved, especially the shark tunnel! Adjacent to the trail is also the USS New Jersey, a battleship that you can tour.

Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail
