Starting at Pennington Park’s eastern parking lot near the dog parks, the regional trail begins on the yellow trail and runs 0.9 miles through Pennington Park. It then continues 0.62 miles behind the Newton’s Landing development, all off-road through open space. At 1.5 miles, the paved trail goes goes under the Light Rail tracks and ends at Pennsylvania Ave.
At the intersection of Pennsylvania Ave and Rancocas Ave, pedestrians can continue left (west) onto Rancocas Ave but bikes must go a different route due to the one-way traffic on Rancocas Ave. The detail map below shows the route for bikes traveling west towards Amico Island and the route returning east towards Pennington Park. From Rancocas Ave., the trail turns left onto Burlington Ave. which becomes the Pavilion Ave. bridge that crosses the Rancocas Creek into Riverside.
