Default Skating on the New Jersey Shore

I'll be staying near Ocean City, NJ for a few days in 2 weeks and would like to know if there are any trails, roads, etc. that are good for fitness and scenic skating. Thanks for any suggestions, info or websites.

Hi Lezsk8!

My half-sister has a place in Ocean City, and while she doesn't skate, she does run and she's been going to the island her whole life. I'll see what I can find out.

I did skate on the streets in Ocean City about 6-7 years back and it wasn't bad at all. I skated down along one of the main avenues paralleling the bay. This time of year, with the tourist season being over, it should be very low traffic. I also saw on the railstrails website a paved path mentioned in OC, but no details really of where it starts, length, etc. A picture posted looks like a nice smooth trail and notes Haven Avenue, but no cross street coordinates.

I'll see what I can find out.

Julie

Hi LezSk8! Thanks for the birthday wishes! I got some info. from my brother-in-law, as well as another teammate who lives down near Atlantic City. I will send you a PM with the info. Both mention a trail in Somers Point, which is the town immediately across the bay from Ocean City at the 9th St. bridge. They also think skating down the avenues of Ocean City this time of year would be good. Hope that the info. will be helpful and will look forward to hearing about your trip and skating adventures!

Julie

Skating in Margate - Friday I skated from Ocean to Bay on the streets of Margate for 45 minutes. Off to Pennsylvania for a couple days. I'll find a trail to Ocean City Monday.

I got in two skates on the street and boardwalk while visiting in Margate City. I was going to skate the boardwalk from Ventnor to Atlantic City but it was a little rough, crowded, etc. There was also a cross county run taking place on the boardwalk. Middle school age? It had traffic blocked but while I was watching it a fellow (Bob?) saw my SkateLogForum shirt and started talking to me about inliining. He was going to skate the Prospect Park Marathon the next Saturday. He told me of the trail Julie referred too and I saw it driving to the golf course. I didn't skate it because it was on the mainland and required paying a bridge toll each way and a 30 minute drive. So I decided to skate the streets instead. It was like playing Manopoly - Atlantic, Ventnor, Pacific Aves., etc. Nice area but the streets were a little rough. My last skating on the trip was some streets near Mt. Vernon as the trail along the Potomic River was too crowed, narrow and hilly near Washingtons Mansion.

Hopefully my next trip will give me more than a few hours in the D.C. area and I can hookup with Sheldon, Dev and the area skaters.
