The Camden County Bicycle and Multi-Use Trail Master Plan will identify both on-road bike routes and off-road trail locations that together will create an interconnected trail network from Winslow and Waterford to Camden and Pennsauken and all municipalities in between. The plan is being completed in four phases, and public input is requested.
A public meeting on the plan will be held on Wednesday, October 5th, 2011
7:00pm – 8:30pm
Court Room/Senior Drop In Center

The Plan is considered a companion to the Camden County Open Space and Farmland Preservation Plan in that it makes maximum use of the greenways identified in that plan for future off-road trails thereby providing residents with access to publicly owned green space.
Phase I of the Plan, covering ten central Camden County municipalities, has been completed, while Phase II, involving an additional 13 municipalities is nearing completion. Phases III and IV will be completed simultaneously over the next eighteen months by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission. Once all phases are completed, they will be presented to the Camden County Planning Board for incorporation into the County’s Master Plan.
During the development of each phase of the Plan, the input of local municipal officials and the public has been, and is being, encouraged. Project Teams consisting of one or more locally appointed individuals have been formed to guide the process offering insight into local points of interest, trail/route impediments, and possible solutions to those impediments.
The 13 towns in the current phase of the project, Phase II, include:
Audubon, Barrington, Bellmawr, Brooklawn, Gloucester Township, Haddon Township, Haddonfield, Haddon Heights, Lawnside, Magnolia, Mt. Ephraim, Runnemede and Tavistock
