Hiking Trails & Sites


The book 24 Great Rail Trails of New Jersey is a great book. It is written by Della Penna.

Most of the best trails are in Sussex County. My favorites are the Sussex Branch trail and the Paulinskill Valley trail. I have not hiked or biked the latter for the entire length. Any volunteers?

Historic Sites:

Allaire State Park - Howell, NJ

Steamtown - Scranton, PA (So, I cheated a little here)

Whippany Railroad Museum - Whippany, NJ

Railfanning Locations:*

Ridgefield Park - NYS&W, CSX
Roselle Park - NJT, CSX, NS
Newark - PATH, Amtrak, NJT
Bound Brook - NS, CSX, NJT
