Accessibility: The trail surface is paved asphalt, smooth, and typically at least six feet wide. The grade is gentle (all estimated under 3%) so most wheelchair and stroller users will likely be able to traverse the trail.

Very nice trail. Paved for riding and walking ease, wide enough for pedestrians and bikes to share. Peaceful with nice scenery.

More of an urban biking and jogging trail than a nature hike. There are some interesting man made sites along the path.

HikingGreat!

Nice, paved, straight path with 6-feet width. Though there are many people on Sunday afternoon, still feel comfortable to have a total of 7 miles walk.

overall nice clean trail. All paved.. Nice quick cardio. Went during peak hours on a Saturday so lots of people. Probably less crowded during the am or the week.

Road biking

After a quick google search of where to park - we quickly found there is a decent size parking lot in that is google searchable called Metuchen trailhead. Started at mile 3 and is a quick fully paved bike ride. You did have to stop a few times to cross the street and go over a pedestrian bridge over route - (which was cool). This is a great little paved road to get some activity in. But for the love of god - please stay to your right and respect those around you. Don’t walk completely across the entire width of the walkway. If riding bikes make sure to be aware of kids - they and their parents didn’t seem to care if kids dart out in front of bikes. There is a small little creek on the side of the walkway - got lucky I didn’t end up there a few times.
