Great flat view of beaches and nice side trails to lighthouse and river views. Flat terrain so easy on legs. We biked most of it and took a walk to beach where river meets ocean.

I rode this path yesterday and enjoyed every twist, turn, incline and bump. It was an easy paved ride and I look forward to doing it again soon.

This is a great paved family-friendly trail for walking, running, bird watching, or just taking in nature. As for cycling, you need some suspension to get over the bumps where the pavement has buckled. A mountain bike or hybrid will do fine. It is not recommended for a road (speed) bike.

It's not a bad ride. It's easy and you have the ocean view.

I rode the north side from Aberdeen to the Atlantic Highlands Marina 3 times. It's a wonderful ride for any skill level. The scenery is beautiful. And other than the various intersections, it is pretty safe. Reaching the marina after a 12 mile stretch is gratifying. Just remember you will have to return to your starting point.

HOLY TICKS. My dogs got over 30 TICKS within an hour and I'm not joking. Too risky. Won't do again.

The trail is paved multipurpose (pedestrian and bicycle) route from near Parking lot D to North Beach. For the most part it runs along the main road. There is a also another hiking trail running east along the beach but that trail is hard to follow. Nice easy pedestrian/bike trail. If you are waking, keep a eye out for bicyclists.

Great trail, very flat and easy to navigate. Good beach access at any point in the trail. Great way to see Sandy Hook through a new perspective.

Easy flat trail. Well marked. We went early and had a great day! I had no idea Fort Hancock was there so we took our time exploring. Beautiful scenery, ocean views, I think this will become our favorite "go to" trail!
