    hmmm, check out njtransit.com and look for the Raritan Valley Line. You can get off at Bridgewater, ride down 28 towards Thompson, take Thompson across the highway to Chimney Rock Road, and keep going up till you get to the parking lot!

    My guess is that you can only take your bike on the Path during certain hours, but early mornings shouldn't be a problem. So take the Path to Newark, and grab the next Raritan Valley line train to Bridgewater.

    Oh and if you pass Efinger Sporting Goods, stop in and fill your camelbak

    Not really a technical type of trail, but everybody up North Jersey should know about the Raritan River/Delaware River Towpath down in New Brunswick right? Somebody hook him up with the details if you can. All I can remember( I moved to PA) is the Northeast Corridor train to New Brunswick & it's near Rutgers. About 70 miles long. Take plenty of lights for your bike.
