THE COLE ROAD GREENWAY
RECREATIONAL TRAIL SYSTEM - NEW!
Over four miles of new marked trails are nearing completion in this expansive cluster of open space parcels, with off-road trailhead parking on Cole Road and Pine Bank Road, and shoulder parking on Hillcrest Road. When completed, there will also be a trailhead with off-road parking on Pleasant Run Rd. The trail creation and improvements are funded by two grants from the Federal Recreational Trails Program, through the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Several local groups have played major roles in the work involved in this project. Special thanks goes to The Readington Trail Association, who obtained one of the grants and completed the improvements on the west side of Cole Road. Scouts of Troop 186, Three Bridges, and Troop 1969, Stanton spent hundreds of hours on trails projects.
The trails traverse mostly level and gently sloping terrain, along the edges of fields and through forested patches. They are ideal for walking, horseback riding, and cross country skiing in winter. Some unfinished sections are marked with temporary markers and flags.
PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAILS! Some Portions of the trail corridor are adjacent to or cross private property on access easements.
