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 NJHiking.com or TrailLink. You’ll traverse meadows, forests, and beaches on your journey, so bring your camera if you can.
