The Waterfront Trail In New Jersey You Need To Take This Summer

Scenic drives are nice but scenic bike rides are even better; they’re eco-friendly and great exercise. It will barely feel like a workout when you’re pedaling through the prettiest parts of our state. New Jersey has many picturesque paths to choose from but the Henry Hudson Trail is a perfect pick for summer.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The Henry Hudson Trail was the first rail-trail developed in Monmouth County and it is currently leased and managed by the local park system until 2020. The property is still owned by New Jersey transit, who may restore service at any time. For more information on New Jersey’s Henry Hudson Bike Trail, visit or TrailLink. You’ll traverse meadows, forests, and beaches on your journey, so bring your camera if you can.
