Traction Line Recreation Trail

Traction Line Recreation Trail In June 1986, the Park Commission dedicated this recreation trail which runs parallel to the New Jersey Transit Line railroad tracks. The path utilizes nearly 2 miles of right-of-way that might have been an overgrown, littered wasteland.

The trail was developed with the cooperation of the Jersey Central Power and Light Company and the New Jersey Department of Transportation. In April of 1990, a nine-station Parcourse Exercise unit was installed to enhance the health aspects of the trail. The addition was made possible through matching grants from Allied-Signal Foundation, Crum & Forster, and the Jersey Central Power and Light.

The Traction Line Recreation Trail is popular for biking, jogging, cross country skiing, walking and strollers. Motorized vehicles are not permitted on the Trail.
