Barnegat Branch Trail
The Barnegat Branch Trail is a rail trail in New Jersey.
The trail occupies a 15.6-mile abandoned rail corridor in
Ocean County, New Jersey, that extends from Barnegat Township to
Toms River. The trail, is being built along the abandoned Barnegat
Branch Division of the Central Railroad of New Jersey, which stopped
service on the line in 1977. The trail will be developed in three
phases. The trail will become the ninth longest trail in the state, when
Phase I of the trail, connects Burr Street in Barneget to County Lane in Waretown; a length of about 2.6-miles. Work on this inaugural section was completed in September 2007. The trail surface is stone dust, typical of rail-trails, with a 10-foot easement.
Phase II of the trail project is a planned stretch of 6.6-mile that would connect County Lane in Waretown with South Street in Lacey. Construction is slated to begin on a portion of the Phase II section in late 2008 with a 6,000-foot section of pathway between Pancoast road and Wells Mills road in Waretown.
Phase III of the trail project is a planned stretch of 4.4-mile that would connect South Street in Lacey with the Berkley-Beachwood border.
Cedar Creek Campground is proud to announce it has partnered with Ocean County and has provided an easement on the southwest corner of the Campground property to allow camping hikers easy access to Barnagat Branch Trail. This offers a great oppertunity to access this wonderful trail directly from within the campgrounds.
This new trail continues to add to Ocean County's vision to provide our guests with natural surroundings that will last for generations.
Take an oppertunity to hike the trail and enjoy the wonders of the Pinelands.
