CAMDEN, N.J., (CBS) – The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission has unveiled a “master plan,” to connect Camden County with a system of bike and multi-use trails.

When the master plan has been realized, county officials estimate about five years from now, you’ll be able to get from the Ben Franklin Bridge to Winslow Township by bike.

Freeholder Jeff Nash hopes you stop and enjoy yourself on the way.

“Hundreds of miles of biking trails, both on-road and off-road, to direct our cyclists to points of interest in all the different towns in Camden County – parks, historic sites, shopping centers,” said Nash.

Nash says parts of the bike trail network are already in place and the master plan will guide ongoing efforts to connect them, by the Open Space Advisory Committee and individual municipalities.

“It really enhances the quality of life for our residents to create trails for exercise and beautifies the parks and it really makes life enjoyable in Camden County,” said Nash.

Nash predicts residents will make good use of the trails.
