NOTE: All system go tomorrow. A bit warmer. Carpool at Turning Basin 7:00 am - official event start @ Trenton 8:00am. Here's video from last year http://vimeo.com/62035706
A 12-mile walk from city to country. (Formerly called Practice Walk#1) This is 1/2 day warm up for the 40-mile Great Canal Walk (http://TR2NB40.org - 4/6/12). Covers the first leg (1/3) and follows the same East Coast Greenway / D&R Canal towpath. A casual walk to size up the trail and get back into your walking groove.
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.
This is a good alternative for walkers that cannot walk the entire 40-miles on 4/6. Miles walked can be added to your total for the 100-mile Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge (http://crossjerseywalk.org).
Best mass transportation plan is to park at Alexander Rd and D&R Canal parking lot at 7:00 am and get one of us to shuttle you to Princeton Junction train station to catch the 7:27 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.
