I am just getting back to a routine following a torn ACL last year and ran across this area seeeking a light workout. It is close to civilization and easy to get to at the end of the workday. Bikers share the trails with hikiers, kids and dogs, so be aware. The trails are great for beginners and those who want the thrill of mountain biking, without a lot of climbs. It is great for those who are getting back into the sport after an injury.

Take route 70 east in Cherry Hill to Ponzios and make a right turn onto King's Highway. Follow to Park Blvd and turn right at the light. Park at the small lot on the left. There are several trails to ride or hike. You can pick up the trail from the lot and follow to Grove Street. It is a nice little ride for beginners with a few bridges and some single track through the woods. It is not very steep. If you go in the opposite direction and cross the Hopkins Lane, you will run into some tricky stuff with a bit of root activity which runs along the river. It can be interesting and fun. I can keep myself busy for well over an hour without leaving the dirt. It does get muddy in sections after a lot of rain.

a good place to take the kids if you want to have a long 3-4 mile loop on paved path.

Customer Service

i don't know of any off road trails there, but there is a paved walking path which can get mobbed.. i don't see this as a mountain bike destination unless i'm missing something somewhere.

It is flat and boring, but a nice off road extension to the Cooper River loop. Good place for beginners. Watch out under the rail road bridge as it is a hangout for gays and male prostitues...no kidding.

Customer Service

If you start out near the mini golf course behind the Hylton and head east you will run into the head of the off road trail. It runs about 1 mile up to Croft Farm off of Brace Road near the Coastline.

The main attractions are the view from the Ben Franklin, and the loop around Cooper River Park.
Stock up on water before you leave.
The ride along Delaware Ave goes fast, but it is hot, open riding on a blacktop road. Getting across the Ben Franklin Bridge takes about a mile and a half with spectacular views.. Pro-Riding through Rugers is easy, luncheon carts have food and water, and Main Street has some pizza places and mini marts. Con- Camden is a pain to navigate if you're not from there, the roads are torn up for repairs, the roads that are open meet in wierd angles, street signs are few, and the 676 highway cuts off roads and make it a pain to get around. Lots of 10" tall curbs and no curb cuts for technical types, but also lots of broken glass along the roadside.
The sidewalk along Admiral Wilson is boring, straight and hot. The Gateway trail is boring, curved and hot. There are two water fountains that don't work, a parking area that is closed off and lots of barren burnt out sod. The sidwalk and parking lot of "the Pub" along Kaigns has lots of glass. Once you get to North Park things look up. The park has trees,
After you cross 130, riding along the paved trail is easy. The most congested area is the loop between Route 130 and Cuthbert, it looks like 75% of traffic is in this area, but it has the views of the lake and boats, water stops and bathrooms. East of Grove St, there is only a trail on the north side, but the gravel and single track it is more interesting and less used than others.

Customer Service

This 'trail' is really 3 routes strung together. First a 5 mile street and road route from Philly through Camden to the beginning of the "Gateway Trail" along Admiral Wilson Blvd.
Second, a 5 mile paved stem and loop trail including "Gateway Trail" and the main portion of Cooper River Park.
Third a 2 mile gravel and single track trail system that stretches along the north bank of the Cooper River from Grove Ave to Wallworth Park in Haddonfield and is known as either 'Cooper River Park' or "Camden County Park".
