Ribbon-Cutting for a Bike Trail

Paul Ligeti

Paul Ligeti

Join Eagle Scout Paul Ligeti, township and scout officials for the ribbon-cutting of Paul’s 11-mile route through historic West Windsor at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 30, at the trail’s starting kiosk next to the World War II memorial in Dutch Neck (corner of Village Road East and South Mill Road).

Paul started this project to get his Eagle Scout award, but it has turned into a labor of love. His website not only has a map but plenty of detail about West Windsor that goes beyond War of the Worlds. Did you know West Windsor has two stops on the Underground Railroad? Or that a double murder in Dutch Neck in 1910 led to the first use of the electric chair in Mercer County? And that Woodrow Wilson would bike from Princeton to walk around Grover’s Mill Pond? The red markers you see around town are stops on this route.

Great job, Paul!

The WWBPA intends to team up with Paul for a group ride once the weather cools down. Watch our website and Facebook page for details.
