A proposed six-mile hiking and biking trail that would run through Pequannock and Wayne, connecting to NJ Transit's Mountain View train station, has gotten long-awaited federal authorization, including $1.9 million in federal dollars, according to Morris County officials.. . .

The asphalt trail, which would run from Post Lane in Riverdale, through Pequannock and to the train station in Wayne, would be the first of its kind in the Route 23 corridor region of Morris and Passaic counties. It has been especially appealing to transportation officials because it connects with mass transit.
