Ralph’s Ride (And Walk) in Lawrenceville

Lawrencevillle is dedicating its new Trolley Bridge, part of the Johnson Trolley Line over Five Mile Run, with a nature walk and a bike ride in honor of Ralph Copleman (Mr. Sustainable Lawrence) on Saturday, June 11.
Walkers can gather at 9 a.m. at the entrance of Loveless Tree Farm, a 44-acre nature preserve located off Eggerts Crossing Road, and hike through this former Christmas tree farm and along the Johnson Trolley Line to the 10 a.m. bridge dedication. Afterwards, hikers will explore some little known trails in Lawrence’s Central Park before returning to the parking area. The total hike is about 2 1/4 miles.
Bicyclists will? start pedaling at 10:30 a.m. as well. There are three options: two miles, eight miles and 15 miles. All are unsupported (no rest stops, no rescue service). The routes are mapped but not signposted.
The event is free. Participants can walk, bike or drive to the bridge opening. Parking is available at Central Park or along Johnson or Drift Aves. The bridge is a half mile walk from either area. The southern portion of the Johnson Trolley Line runs 2.2 miles north to Spruce Street in Ewing. The northern part of the trail is on the other side of I-95.
