Join in on this easy, flat 10-mile walk (actually its 12.3-miles!) between New Brunswick and Metropark in Iselin along the East Coast Greenway. (Hence, the name "Tween Walk").
Its a suburban walk on sidewalk along some fairly busy roads, through the interesting town of Highland Park and older neighborhoods in Edison. We visit an historic gravesite, Middlesex County Greenway, the town of Fords. The trail goes through the interesting and popular Roosevelt Park and a detour to the Edison monument as we get close to Metropark.
The walk should only be about 4.5 hours and is the connecting segment between the TR2NB40 and the NJ2NY50 so that you can make the distance for the Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge. See the East Coast Greenway NJ map for details on what route we will follow.
