Great Canal Walk - Saturday, April 8, 2016 - PRINCETON to NEW BRUNSWICK - 28 MILES OR 40 MILES
For the seventh year in a row, the FreeWalkers of New Jersey are inviting everyone to join our Great Canal Walk Series. You can now sign up for this event.
This event is designed to take advantage of rail transportation and event support by the East Coast Greenway. We have a shuttle service to the start from Princeton Junction rail station to Turning Basin start between 9:30-10:00.
This walk has been redesigned as the second leg in a 40-mile route along the canal from Trenton to New Brunswick, although one can still walk the full 40-mile walk as an option by starting early at 7:00 am in Trenton and merging with the primary walk in Princeton. See the schedule for more details.
The day's event is primarily a 28-mile one-day journey by foot is along the D&R Canal
Trace the towpath footsteps of the Delaware & Raritan Canal, a 175 year old waterway across Central New Jersey - from Princeton to New Brunswick.
The TR2NB40 - Great Canal Walk is now 28-miles long and part of a series of 2 walks along a 40-mile distance, is a superb physical and mental challenge and the first long segment in a series of four walking events aiming to walk across New Jersey following the East Coast Greenway.
This event is free and open to the public.
