A Big Walk Along the Towpath

Some of the participants in the NJ2NY50 Walk

The East Coast Greenway is planning two long walks in New Jersey in 2011.

On April 9, walkers will head from Trenton to New Brunswick following the East Coast Greenway, which uses the D&R Canal towpath for that stretch. Participants can walk all or part of the route, which is about 35 miles.

There also will be  a repeat of the 50-mile walk from Metropark to New York Penn Station on May 21. This walk, called NJ2NY50,  was a huge success in 2010 and is scheduled this time for May 21st.

Take part in both and you could essentially walk across New Jersey! More information will be on the East Coast Greenway’s website closer to the events. But it’s not too early to start training.
