About this event

Explore a wealth of walking trails at Duke, with nature in full bloom.

Start: Bound Brook Station

Finish: Bound Brook Station

Distance: 15mi

Coordinator: Charles Updike

Transit: NJTransit rail to Bound Brook or New Brunswick.  

Optional endpoints: Somerville Station (~10mi)

Optional start: Depart from New Brunswick Station at 7am. Adds seven miles

Enjoy nature in full bloom, both inside and out at Duke Farms.  This walk is a loop starting and ending at Bound Brook Station, through Bound Brook, Somerville, Duke Farms, Manville, and along the D and R Canal back to the station in Bound Brook. Bakery stop in Somerville.

If you wish to linger at Duke Farms beyond our scheduled stay and not continue along the canal, you can instead walk the short distance to Somerville Station for a very short train ride back to Bound Brook.

If you are up for some additional mileage and/or find the rail route to Bound Brook inconvenient, meet us at New Brunswick Station in time for a 7am departure, and we will walk along the D&R Canal to Bound Brook.

Highlights:

- D&R Trail

- Bound Brook

- Duke Farms

- Manville
