The Sussex Branch Tail is a multi-use pathway that runs for 18 miles in New Jersey from Waterloo Road in Byram Township to Mill Street in Branchville, Sussex County.

During 2011, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) conducted this study of the users of the Sussex Branch Trail under a grant from the F. M. Kirby Foundation. This survey was designed specifically to monitor trail user characteristics and the economic impact of trail visits.

From data collected in 2011, we estimate the annual economic impact of the Sussex Branch Trail to be $239,000.
