Get Outside: Biking in Bergen County
Shopping malls might rule in Bergen, but there are plenty of places to enjoy fresh-air activities and the summer sunshine.
Cyclists, rejoice! The Saddle River Area Bike Path extends for almost six miles through the towns of Ridgewood, Glen Rock, Fair Lawn, Paramus, Saddle Brook and Rochelle Park along the Saddle River and Ho-Ho-Kus Brook. It goes by the historic Easton Tower on Route 4 as well as a scenic waterfall at Dunkerhook Park. The trail also goes past ponds, picnic areas, playgrounds, tennis courts and athletic fields.
