Hoping to have a weekend trip in north/central Jersey visiting friends. When they come here to Philly, we take them my 13-year-old godson for a ride on the Schuylkill River Trail. Now my godson has learned to associate me with long flat bike rides without cars around.
I'm looking at the D&R canal near Bound Brook, headed either towards New Brunswick or Princeton, but I've heard the path surface can be a bit rough. Anyone in the area able to post the current conditions? Huge chunks of gravel would be bad, pea gravel or hardpack dirt would be great.
