Central New Jersey Rail Trail (Hopefully)

Members of the Phillipsburg Riverview Organization have formed a Committee to convert the unused Central New Jersey Railroad Corridor into a recreational corridor for walking and bicycling. The Corridor has been deemed eligible for historic recognition by the US Department of the Interior.


1849-1976 --  the CNJ ran through this area.


The Phillipsburg Riverview Organization has permission from the New Jersey Transit, to lead group tours of the trail.

The trail is interrupted at 3rd Ave (route 519) in Alpha because both sides of the way have become overgrown. (To bypass the break use the park in Alpha Annex and local roads.)

The Rail Trail is interrupted at Route 78. (Proceed a few hundred feet south to the Lehigh Railroad Bridge over Route 78.)
