Bergen County Nature Walks: Hackensack River Greenway in Teaneck
 

The Hackensack River Greenway features a 3.5 mile nature trail, anchored by parks, through Teaneck, New Jersey. This central Bergen County Greenway features a variety of wildlife including birds, fish, mammals and reptiles. The Hackensack River is on the Eastern Flyway and this area is a stopping point for egrets, swans, herons, cormorants and loons.

The trail parallels the east bank of the Hackensack River from Terhune Park, north to Brett Park. Much of the pathway is along the river. Trail maps are available at several entry points along River Road.

The Hackensack River Greenway is owned by the Township of Teaneck and maintained by the Friends of the Hackensack River Greenway.

Directions: From Route 4 East, take the River Road/Teaneck/Bogota/New Milford exit on right. Follow the signs for River Road at the bottom of the ramp. Turn left for the section of the Greenway heading north, and right for its southern section. To begin a hike at Andreas Park travel 0.5-mile north on River Road from the Route 4 off-ramp to Grenville Avenue and turn left.
