The Johnson Trolley Trail is the bed of an old trolley, known as the “Fast Line,” run by the Trenton-Princeton Traction Company from appr. 1901/1940. Fares were only 10¢. Today, you can walk or bike the right-of-way abandoned by the former trolley company for free on a restored trail. The trail is split up into two sections, north and south, which are split by Interstate 95. The Ewing section is the terminus of the southern section. It was renovated with the help of a grant from the Federal Recreational Trails Program, administered by the NJDEP. It consists of an approximately 5,000ft multi-use path and natural area.
Parking is available at the end of Whitehead Road Ext.
