Mountain Biking Pemberton Rail Trail

**   Add a review
#96 of 110 mountain bike trails in New Jersey
#11,408 in the world

Located about 25 miles east of Philadelphia, the Pemberton Rail-Trail is an excellent example of grassroots activism resulting in the creation of a community-based rail-trail. The group most responsible for getting this trail built is the Pemberton Rotary Club, who took the leadership role in planning, developing and maintaining the trail. Walking, Biking, Cross Country skiing.

This is a lovely trail to jog first thing in the morning. Although the far west end passes by a smelly water procesing plant, the rest follows the Rancocas Creek for a delightful hike-jog-bikeride in a tunnel of trees. Watch for deer, boxturtles, rabbits, squirrels, chicadees and other active wildlife.You can park either by the former Pemberton rail station or across from the Burger King south of the trail.

    A rail trail, rather than a "mountain bike" trail. It's a good family ride, and you can use it to get to Smithville Park (also a good family ride).

    If you are looking for a straight down and back, I guess this trail is not bad. There is a branch off the trail which just brings you back to the road where you park but further down. I guess I was expecting more but I was fairly disappointed with this trail. You just pedal straight for 2 miles then turn around and come back. Tried to explore to see if there was anything else but couldn't find anything. I'd also like the add the photos are not of this trail. I recognize the location of those photos and I believe that's up by Washington Crossing (North of Trenton).
