Municipal Bike Paths
Four Atlantic County communities are connected by a 6.5-mile corridor, with each community maintaining its portion of the trail. Starting in Somers Point, a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, a large, bright sign welcomes you to the Somers Point Bike Path. The trail then heads north through Linwood, Northfield and Pleasantville.
Most of the trail travels through residential neighborhoods, schools, parks and playing fields. Residents frequently walk it for exercise or take their young children for a ride in their strollers. A few short wooded sections provide a change of pace from the residential neighborhoods.
From the municipal building in Somers Point, at the intersection of West New Jersey Avenue and 1st Street, the bike path heads north, parallel to 1st Street. Beyond Maryland Avenue the area on each side of the bike path is primarily residential.
Just after passing over Ocean Avenue, the bike path enters Linwood. The Linwood Bike Path travels through primarily residential neighborhoods. It takes the center of a wide median that divides Wabash Avenue; the eastern side is one way north and the western side is one way south.
The bike path enters Northfield just before crossing Oakhurst Avenue. More residential neighborhoods flank the path. A large recreational complex provides ample parking, trailside, between West Devonshire and Edgewood avenues.The trail enters Pleasantville, the most urban of the communities, after passing over West Ridgewood Avenue. It continues to West Decatur Avenue and extends across the inactive railroad bridge that crosses the Black Horse Pike. The trail extends another .75 miles along an active rail line to Devins Lane.
