Guide to Biking the Jersey Shore

 

1. Henry Hudson Trail and Bike Path -- Atlantic Highlands to Keyport and then south to Freehold along a dedicated path through marshes and woods. (Currently there are two unfinished parts on the trail, so it is now broken into three separate paths, which are handled separately on this link.)

2. Sandy Hook Bike Path -- Ocean and bay vistas, military structures, and great beaches on a dedicated bike path
3. Paths to the Sea -- Beautiful homes along bikeable roads to the sea in Monmouth County
4. Sea Bright to Long Branch -- Alongside a sea wall on a bike path, past beach clubs, and onto a concrete boardwalk
5. Long Branch to Spring Lake -- Past diverse beach communities, from posh to destroyed, on boardwalks
6. Edgar Felix Bike Path -- From Manasquan to Allaire State Park on a lonely path through woods
7. Spring Lake to Point Pleasant -- From a beautiful town to a great boardwalk, but mostly on a busy highway
8. Point Pleasant to Island Beach State Park -- Through the two best boardwalks in middle Jersey to a park with serene beaches, but mostly on an unpleasant highway
9. Bayshore Trail -- Beautiful short path nestled between Sandy Hook Bay and a steep, forested hillside, almost connecting the Henry Hudson Trail to Sandy Hook.
(Unfortunately, this trail was completely destroyed by Sandy, and may not ever be restored. Pictures of the devastation are on this link.)
