The New Jersey portion of the Greenway covers 94 miles between Pennsylvania and New York. It passes through bustling urban areas — Trenton, Princeton, New Brunswick, Newark, and Jersey City — as well as quiet suburban settings and more rural landscapes than one might expect. The route is currently 48% on traffic-free paths and has the second highest percent of completed trail in any Greenway state. The route includes the ECG’s longest completed trail segment – the D&R Canal Towpath, which is 34.3 miles long.

Between the end of the D&R Canal Towpath and the northern end of the New Jersey route in Jersey City, travelers alternate between park paths and interim on-road sections. Trail users currently take a NJ PATH train (bikes allowed on weekends and nonpeak hours with two bikes allowed per car) between Newark and Jersey City, but plans are in place to develop trail between these cities. The New Jersey route is bound on either side by rivers. A ferry is used to cross the Hudson River between New Jersey and New York, and the bike/ped friendly Calhoun Street Bridge crosses the Delaware River between NJ and PA.

Directions:

Trailhead from PA: Enter on W. Calhoun St. Bridge in Trenton NJ.
