Barnegat Branch Trail


**ADVISORY: Earle Construction will be on site Thursday 5/7 to perform the striping on the pavement. They will be onsite Friday 5/15 to install the concrete pads, detectable warning surfaces, and bollards pending weather conditions causing delays on other projects or on this one.

On October 15, 2007 the Barnegat Branch Trail was officially opened to the public. This “rail-to-trail” project follows the abandoned Barnegat Branch Division of the Central Railroad of New Jersey. The trail will be constructed in several phases, and will stretch 15.6 miles from Barnegat to Toms River once completed.

As always trail users are urged to be safe and stay aware of their surroundings. Please adhere to closures as this ensures safety of everyone and enables our contractor to complete the work in a timely manner.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Parks Department directly at (732) 506-9090
