East Coast Greenway
 

As of 2013 more than half of the 93 mile New Jersey Section of the East Coast Greenway was completed as off-road trails.

The East Coast Greenway is a developing trail system, spanning nearly 3,000 miles as it winds its way between Calais Maine and Key West, Florida, linking all the major cities of the eastern seaboard. As of 2013 over 25 percent of the route was on safe, traffic-free paths.

The 16 miles in Middlesex County includes the Middlesex Greenway See http://www.co.middlesex.nj.us/parksrecreation/greenway.asp

The 21 miles in Somerset County includes the towpath on the Delaware and Raritan Canal See http://www.dandrcanal.com/
