Top Running Routes, Walks - Hudson River (Opposite NYC)

Liberty State Park (4.1 miles loop)
This 1,212-acre park with spectacular views of the river, Statue of
Liberty, Ellis Island and Manhattan, can be reached by car,
Hudson-Bergen Light Rail or ferry from Manhattan NYC.  We suggest a
loop of the entire park starting and finishing at the Liberty Landing
Marina.

Newport to Liberty State Park (3.2 miles one way)
This is a great way to get to Liberty State Park from the
Pavonia-Newport PATH Station.
Follow the river bank south around the Goldman Sachs Tower, and
then follow Essex Street, Grand Street, Jersey Avenue, and Audrey
Zapp Drive into Liberty State Park.
Hoboken Riverside Walk
Hoboken to Newport (3.3 miles one
way)
You can start at the Hoboken North Ferry
Terminal (ferry to Manhattan W 39th
Street), follow the river through scenic
Hoboken to the Hoboken PATH Station,
and then navigate the streets to the
Pavonia-Newport PATH Station and the
Newport to Liberty State Park route
described above.
GW Bridge and Palisades Park (various distances)
From Manhattan, at W 178th Street and Fort Washington Avenue, you
can cross the massive George Washington Bridge on foot to Fort Lee,
NJ.  From that point there are various trails northward into Palisades
Interstate Park.  Alternatively you can proceed southward along the
sidewalk to Hoboken and the trails described above.

Top Running Routes, Walks - Morristown Region

Jockey Hollow (various distances)
Morristown National Historic Park preserves the history of the area
where Washington and the Continental Army camped for two winters in
the late 1770s.  Jockey Hollow, a few miles southwest of downtown,
offers some good-distance on-foot exercise in a peaceful woodland
environment passing numerous historic sites.  There is a substantial
trail network or, on your first time there, simply run or walk around the
paved “tour road.”

Top Running Routes, Walks - Princeton Region

Campus and Canal Loop (6.4 miles loop)
The Princeton Campus is sandwiched between the quaint town center
and the watercourses of Carnegie Lake and the Delaware and Raritan
Canal.  To see the scenic highlights of the area, start at the natural
center of Princeton at Nashua Street and Witherspoon Street.  Work
south through the campus to Faculty Road and follow the paved trail to
the left.

Top Running Routes, Walks - Jersey Shore

Ocean Grove-Belmar-Sea Girt (6.2 miles one way)
This is an excellent ocean-side trail providing a six-mile uninterrupted
run along a mix of boardwalks and paved paths on the New Jersey
shore.  You can start and finish at many places.  Example: Start at Main
Avenue, Ocean Grove, or at Asbury Park (add one mile) and proceed
to the boardwalk end at Trenton Boulevard, Sea Girt.  There is a bus
service connecting the main points on the route, giving many
possibilities for a tailored day outing.

Reservoir.  Access it from Interstate 195 exit 28B.

New Jersey Running and Walking Routes
Continue to Harrison Street and cross
Lake Carnegie on the road bridge. Do a
loop of the Delaware and Raritan Canal
to the east to the Millstone Aqueduct
and then follow the canal to the west.  At
Alexander Street turn northward and
follow the road back to the campus.
For someone staying at an Atlantic City
hotel, start where Park Place meets the
Boardwalk and proceed to Ventnor and
the end of the boardwalk at Martindale
Avenue, just before the Margate NJ line.  
We recommend an out-and-back plan
since return public transit is not a good
option.
