An Historical Canal Comes Alive Again
Thanks everone for making this another successful event. Our Third Annual Great Canal Walk took place on Saturday, April 6, 2013. This is our first long walk of the NY/NJ FreeWalkers season with options to walk the entire 40 length of the D&R Canal from Trenton to New Brunswick or maybe a little less if that's your preference.
There were 43 walkers participated in the event with 12 making the entire 40-mile distance.We were benefitted top-level support from Andy, Mike and Ann of the East Coast Greenway and James and Andrew of the North Brunswick and Princeton EMS stores. Crystal from Blue Ridge Mountain Sports of Princeton provided some great raffle prizes and a top prize of a pair of hiking poles at our lunch stop in Kingston.
