Get Outside: Biking in Central Jersey

Both serious mountain bikers and families can find their ideal biking trail here.




Cyclists, rejoice! There are a pair of mountain biking hot spots in our area—the 715- acre Washington Valley Park in Bridgewater Township and Sourland Mountain Preserve, whose 3,000 acres stretch across Hillsborough and Montgomery townships through southern Hunterdon and northern Mercer counties to the Delaware River. Both feature miles of trails for different skill levels in an undisturbed natural setting. Also check out Mercer County Park, which has four dedicated mountain biking trails for all levels of skill and ability.

If you prefer pavement, bring your bike to Duke Island Park in Bridgewater Township, which has 3.5 miles of trails along both the canal and the Raritan River. At Natirar Park, a 404-acre site in Peapack-Gladstone, Far Hills and Bedminster, two trails (1.3 miles and 1 mile) traverse scenic meadows and wooded areas. In Mercer County, the Lawrence Hopewell Trail extends for approximately 20 miles through Lawrence and Hopewell Townships.
