General Information

The Nassau Trail' was originally cleared and established as a hiking trail as part of an Eagle Scout project. Located in 52.4 acres of Green Acres property, the Trail covers a four-mile walk through Borough-owned property. In 2011 High Bridge residents Jeff Oliver, Thatcher Simpson and a crew of volunteers used well-established and eco-friendly techniques to convert the Trail into a flowing, single-track trail. The reconfiguration of the Trail opened up previously difficult areas to hikers.

Reviews

Nassau Trailsystem is a quickly expanding system in High Bridge, New Jersey. The single track to the right of Nassau Road has about 5 miles of mostly flat, windy single track that consists of mostly smooth, however sometimes rocky and rooty singletrack. The northern part of the system has some log skinnies that can challenge advanced riders. To the left of Nassau Road, there are another 3 or 4 miles of single track that is flowy and windy with virtually no rocks or roots, expect for to the northern part of this side, with a couple of rock gardens. Overall, a good ride that can last up to 2 and a half hours.
