CAPITAL TO THE COAST TRAIL
About The Trail
The Capital to Coast Trail is a 55-mile cross-state multi-use trail that is designed to span the state of New Jersey (west to east) from the Delaware River in Trenton to the beach front town of Manasquan on the Atlantic Ocean. When finished, the trail will be the third longest in the state, behind the Delaware and Raritan Canal Trail and the Appalachian Trail. The cross-state trail concept was conceived in 2000 by Fred Lockenmeyer and Rudy Buser, of Manasquan, the founding members of the Friends of the Capital to the Coast Trail.
The Capital to the Coast Trail is a multi-use trail, which accommodates two-way non-motorized travelers. Our trail is designed for pedestrians, bicyclists, joggers, hikers, horses / horseback riders, and just about anything with legs or wheels.
We Need Your Help
As of August 20, 2008 the Capital to Coast Trail is incomplete, existing mostly on paper; however on June 16, 2006, the initial segment was dedicated with a ribbon cutting ceremony at Allaire State Park where the existing 30+ year old Edgar Felix Bikeway became the first segment. On August 20, 2008, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held to open a second 2.5-mile section in West Windsor off Old Trenton Road.
We are petitioning the Freeholders for funding and working with each town to secure property and funding to complete the trail.
