TRENTON TO PRINCETON - 12 MILES
A 12-mile walk from city to country. This is 1/2 day event along with the 28-mile Great Canal Walk (4/8/17) that now cover the 40 miles from Trenton to New Brunswick along the D&R Canal. The Great Canal Walks cover the first 40 miles and follows the same East Coast Greenway / D&R Canal towpath. This first leg, the Spring Ahead Walk traditionally is a casual walk to size up the trail and get back into your walking groove. The walking event is free and open to anyone. See more details on the Great Canal Walk Series.
This is scheduled as a 4.5 hour walk with easy start / finish using trains. At Princeton, options are to go toward town or head to Princeton Junction train station - heading back home. Let us know if you need/or want to offer carpooling.
We think the best mass transportation plan is to park at Alexander Rd and D&R Canal parking lot at 7:00 am (end point) and get one of us to shuttle you to Princeton Junction train station to catch the 7:27 am to Trenton arriving at 7:46. Or, parking is available at the Princeton Junction train station which is less than 2 miles from where our walk ends - metered parking. Free street parking is available in Trenton near the Transit Center as another option.
NEW: This year (2017) basic information sheet for the walk, including info on transportation is the same - Click here for updated details (updated 2/26/17).
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.
NOTE: We are re-designing our tracking form and you will be notified in the future on how your efforts can be tracked, including this event.
