Along the way, the group will be joined by members of the Abbott Marshlands Stewardship Council and State Park Service to talk about the Abbott Marshlands and D&R Canal Towpath. In Bordentown, a local historian will meet the group at the Thomas Paine Statue.
Meet at the Battle Monument, which is located at the “Five Points” intersection of Pennington Road; Princeton, Brunswick, North Broad and Warren Streets) in Trenton.
The ride will take place on April 16, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pre-registration is required online. The suggested donation is $15. For more information, contact Jay Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (609) 439-3726.
The D&R Greenway Land Trust is working on bridging the trail gap between
Bordentown City and the D&R Canal State Park path at the Battle Monument.
The project also seeks to connect the County’s Tulpehaking Nature Center, Abbott Marshlands and the Lawrence Hopewell Trail to the Circuit network.
