Market East Jefferson Station, Philly to Lindenwold, NJ via Ben Franklin Bridge, Cooper River Park and other South Jersey trails. Visit to Walt Whitman house. Return by PATCO train from multiple stops.
If you have never crossed the Ben Franklin Bridge, you will appreciate the view. This will be a guided walk at a shared pace through Camden, including a visit to Walt Whitman's house. Once we get out of the city and into the park, feel free to move at your preferred pace. This walk thereafter stitches together charming South Jersey towns and pleasant but scattered trail segments in between.
