A paved trail on a former rail bed that runs through Monmouth County.
Our two cents:
Paved but not entirely smooth sailing – there are occasional bumps and dips from roots. Street crossings can be frequent. Some traffic noise.
There are three separate sections of the Henry Hudson Trail, one north and two in the southern portion.
Henry Hudson Trail (North):
The northern section runs from Keyport to the Atlantic Highlands, and can be connected via about a mile road ride to the Bayshore Bike Trail.
Pass through shady forests and marshlands, past backyards, over boardwalks, with views of Sandy Hook Bay, the Verrazano bridge, and the NYC skyline.
Available miles: 12
Henry Hudson Trail (South):
A paved trail in two sections that run from Matawan to Marlboro and Marlboro to Freehold.
It is not recommended to connect the sections, as the route between them is on a busy road.
Available miles: 10 (5 per section).
