The West Essex Trail trail is an Essex County park, situated on the former right-of-way of the Caldwell Branch of the old Erie-Lackawanna Railroad, in Verona, New Jersey, and Cedar Grove, New Jersey. A distinguishing feature of the trail is a trestle bridge 20 feet above the Peckman River.

Acquired in 1985 through Green Acre funding, the 2.84 mile trail runs from the Passaic County line near the Lenape Trail, southwest through the Cedar Grove Community Park by the Peckman River, across Route 23, across Durrell Street next to Bahr Lumber, across Fairview Avenue, past Verona High School, and ending at Arnold Way.

Public debate delayed the County acquisition long enough for the railroad company to sell off some intermittent parcels, effectively preventing the county from extending the trail as far as Grover Cleveland Park in Caldwell, as originally planned.

The Lenape Indian Trail crosses the West Essex Trail near the Passaic/Essex County line.. [ [http://www.essex-countynj.org/p/index.php?section=parks/sites/ve&ImgLoc=images/ve Essex County Parks] . Retrieved June 7, 2008.]
