pretty flat so don't stop peddaling. Enjoy the view of the canal the whole way. Great for Fat Bikes in the winter.

    Mostly well packed dirt/gravel tow path along DE river/Raritan Canal. MTB, suspension not necessary to ride here but may have to walk bike over rare rocky areas. Used hybrid bike with 28s. Scenery limited to trail, canal on one side, with a few spillways. The trail is well shaded.
