Township of Readington, New Jersey



A multi-use system of marked trails and parking access points on Township open space is being developed as cooperative venture between the Readington Township Open Space Advisory Board and the Readington Recreation Department. This is made possible by funding from various state trail development grants and the work of Readington volunteers.

These trails afford individuals and families the opportunity to experience the beauty of Readington, observe various species of plants and animals in their natural habitats, and enhance health and well being through exercise.

Walking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and other forms of non-motorized access are permitted on the trails from dawn to dusk. When coming in sight of equestrians, hikers should verbally make themselves known while still at a distance, step aside and allow horse and rider to pass. Mountain biking is not prohibited although the trails have not been prepared as bikeways. Mountain bikers must dismount and yield the right of way when nearing a horse and rider, and must yield to pedestrians.

Please note that some portions of the trail system are subject to hunting in season or are adjacent to private property where hunting may occur. During hunting season it is recommended that you wear blaze orange or restrict your walking to Sundays when hunting is not permitted.
