The FreeWalkers are tracking again the Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge, which sets a goal of walking the 100 miles of the East Coast Greenway across the entire State at any time during the year. This walk is part of the ECG trail from Trenton to New York City. We provide recognition of the accomplishment at the end of the year and you can subscirbe at any time.

Partners:
The East Coast Greenway Alliance is a non-profit organization developing a public multi-use 3,000
mile trail from Canada to Key West through New Jersey and New York. Donations and memberships help make this dream trail a reality.
