Pelouesse was also located on a branch of the Lenape trail across Musconetcong Mountain, called the Malayelick Trail. This name derived from the Lenape words maheles, meaning "flint", and elek, meaning "as it happens (occurs)". The limestone of the Musconetcong Valley has significant amounts of chert which was used to make flint arrowheads, spear points, knives, and scrapers. These products were important trade items. The Malayelick Trail reached to where Trenton is today to the south, and to where Phillipsburg is today to the west.
