Hi Paul, yes, Irelyn, my Mom and I enjoyed the walk even with the tough wind. We did get caught in the rain at the last minute be made it to the car just in time. It was great of Lin (Linda) to walk back with us from the train. Thanks again for everything and supplying my little one with all the mnms her little hands coud hold. :) Looking forward to the next walk.

Thank you for the nice welcome. There is a map on the Duke Farms website www.dukefarms.org but not much else specific to walking. The trains are open from 8:30 - 6 every day but Wednedsay and are free to the public. 4 miles of the trails are paved, the rest are gravel or mown or woodchipped pathways. There is interpretive signage along the way teaching visitors about habitats and wildlife and a bit about the history of Duke Farms. If you would like to stop by and check out our facility we would love to have you and if youwould like to plan an event here, we would help with the advertising of that. One thing of concern for us all is the lack of public transportation to our location. That is somethin we are hoping to resolve in the future. Please let me know what you think. Looking frward to hearing from you and thank you again for the welcome!
Hi Paul, What a wonderful walk at the Liberty State Park! Beautiful day, spectacular view and good friends! Thank you for making every walk possible. YOU ARE GREAT!!! I am trying to upload the photos in my album, photos occupy the whole page and I can not save them. See you at the next walk!
Paul, how exciting! Of couse, we plan to come. The award will be a great encourager for her. And a nice surprise. I still haven't figured out how to log in her miles from Newark to Penn Station in New York during the 50 mile walk. Many thanks for all you do. Thanks especially for igniting the flames of the next generation of walkers.

Just a few days ago, I noticed, maybe for the first time, the sounds of the Great Canal Walk. For most of the 40 miles and 15 hours that day there was an absence of sound in this body of water as still as glass on that calm day....
